Milk of Magnesia

Milk Of magnesia

Years ago my momma had a friend that had really nice healthy looking skin and finally one day my mom asked her what she used on her skin and she said Milk Of Magnesia. So I started using it. I was always changing up my regimen because I had problem skin.

Milk of magnesia is a laxative that has been known to do a lot more than unclog the colon. I was recently reminded that Milk of Magnesia was great for acne. MOM dries up oil so that is what makes it so great for oily acne prone skin.

After washing your face rub the milk on your face to get rid of any breakouts.

Make-up trick: Rub Milk of Magnesia on your brows as a primer before you apply your make-up.

Suga water for setting make-up

Ok maybe not sugar water but a glycerin and water. Same thing right? I am not a big make-up girl BUT I do know a little. Setting spray helps to keep make-up on your face and off of your clothes or your significant other during snuggle time. Setting spray can be EXPENSIVE.  MAC cosmetics sells their setting spray for US$21.00 and Urban Decay retails their version for about US$29.00.

So for a cheaper DIY version you will need:

SMALL spray Bottle

Water

Glycerin

Mix 1 part Glycerin with 3 parts water in your spray bottle and mix it up for a fresh batch of setting spray. This should be made in small amounts I would say for those people who wear make-up daily. Make enough for about 7 days in a small spray bottle.
