Milk of Magnesia

Has anyone heard of using Milk of Magnesia as a mask for oily / acne-prone skin?

Not as a mask. I have heard people with oily skin use it before they put on makeup or such. I tried it, and it does take away the oil. Don't use too much or you will have white streaks (its just the Milk of Mag, it wipes off). Although my skin is a bit too oily for it to do what I want it too. But it does take some of the oil away. Just wonder if it is ok for a persons skin...long term affects and such. But yes it helps with oil - even extreme oil, but in that case it does not take it away all day long at all.

Hope that helps.

I have used this as a mask. It works well to control oily skin. This is how you use it:

1. Wash face with mild cleanser.
2. Rinse cleanser thoroughly with lukewarm warm water.
3. Pat face dry with a clean towel or let face air dry.
4. Get bottle of milk of magnesia and shake it well with the cap still on.
5. Place about one-two tablespoons of the product in the palm of your hand.
5. Spread product over your face until entire face is covered. Avoid eye area.
6. Leave on until dry.
7. Once dry, rinse with cool water.
8. Apply toner.
9. Apply aloe vera or other moisturizer.
10. Enjoy!

Valley Girl: How often do you do this to control the oil? At night or morning? How well does it work for oily skin / acne compared to other masks?
