milk of magnesia is great, for oily skin anyway. It has been the best thing that I have ever tried for oily skin. AS far as for acne, I don`t know because I have been using it for 3 days

Yeah, my skin is pretty oily. So milk of magnesia would be great for that. How do you apply the milk of magnesia? And where can you get it?

Re: Acne Remedies

I have an aloe plant and for about a week i was squeezing some of the pulpy gel out every day to put on my face as a mask. I think i got so distracted by the smell (like old beef stew) that i didn't pay much attention to how it made my face look. I'm not ruling it out because i think its a magical plant but i don't plan on using it again any time soon. On the other hand, both sugar and baking soda and great facial scrubs. I prefer sugar just because it makes my face feel so smooth. Honey and sugar together make a great scrub/mask. Mix some together and massage onto damp face. Let sit for a minute then rinse off.
