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.

I will return soon with the benefits of castor oil on hair since I haven’t talked about it at all yet.

It has another common name, palm of Christ, or Palma Christi, that derives from castor oil’s reputed ability to heal wounds and cure ailments.  Castor seed is the source of castor oil, which has a wide variety of uses. Castor oil is a colorless to very pale yellow liquid with mild or no odor or taste.  The seeds contain between 40% and 60% oil that is rich in triglycerides, mainly ricinolein. Oleic and linoleic acidsare the other significant components.
