Countless people struggle with the inconvenience of oily skin on an everyday basis. Makeup is nearly impossible to apply and maintain for any desired length of time, expensive cleansers and exfoliators are often required to eliminate extra oil, and embarrassing pimples and other skin complications regularly crop up without warning.
With all this being said, there don’t seem to be any benefits for those with this skin type. However, one little known advantage is the fact there are homemade remedies and economical solutions many people have not even thought to discover. While many oil-prone folks are blowing their bank account on infomercial products and prescription-required ointments, the best solution of all may be found at your local grocery or drug store.
Use Milk of Magnesia to treat oily skin by first washing your skin as usual. Pat your skin completely dry. Always use care and be gentle when you wash your face. It’s not necessary to scrub hard, even if your skin is extra-oily. Scrubbing too hard can damage sensitive facial skin.
Apply Milk of Magnesia to your face, nose and forehead by using a cotton ball. Saturate the cotton ball with the Milk of Magnesia and dab it lightly onto your skin. Cover all oily areas well. It’s best to treat oily skin with Milk of Magnesia immediately after washing your face. Allow the Milk of Magnesia to dry completely on your skin.
Put your make-up on directly on top of the Milk of Magnesia once it has completely dried. It makes a great foundation for make-up. The dried Milk of Magnesia forms a base that causes make-up products to stick to your skin. It causes your make-up to last much longer on your skin.

Below is a youtube video that “show” how to apply the MOM as a face primer

I’m a member of the grease gang..lol..lol.. My skin is super oily and shine ALL DAY. I’ve been searching long and hard for something that would eliminate my grease. I’ve tried the MOM application a couple of times, and still got shine except for yesterday ( I wasnt applying enough)…..
Yesterday I did the following:
It was great not having to blot or powder my face multiple times through the day. When I came home, I was still oil and shine free. This will remain a staple!!!!!!!
I poured the MOM into a squeeze/squirt bottle ( to control the pour)
I poured the MOM directly in the palm of my hands ( other use cotton or sponges)

When we initially advertivtised the meetup- the RSVP’s filled up in a few hours!!!! Alot of my Facebook and Twitter friends had their curls in a knot because all the RSVP’s were taken. We established a waiting list advertising that as space became available we would open up additional RSVP’s.
Days leading up to the event were stressful for me ( not really, but thats how I operate..lol..lol…). I really wanted all to have a GREAT time. Between working my full time job, family, and mixing products – THIS DIVA WAS TIRED.COM. The night before my daughter and I sorted the product samples from our sponsors and put together the gift bags.

Okay, yesterday I washed my hair using the Tightly Curly method on tightlycurly.com. Everything was all good until I decided that I was going to stretch/air dry my (still wet and full of conditioner) hair by separating it into sections, detangling it, and then putting it into two strand twists for a twist out. I applied a little coconut oil to my hair and twisted into 9 twists. My hair twisted beautifully and it felt very soft. After completing the twist, I allowed the twist to air dry. At bed time, I put a satin cap on my head for the rest night, and let it finish drying.
Fast forward- 6am this morning-I rubbed a little shealoe butter on the ends, and began to untwist my hair and it looks A MESS. I followed the advice I received from the twist out queens on Face book and Twitter- and mine don’t look anything like theirs!!! I watched Curly Lexi YouTube video 5x’s just to make sure I was doing it correctly. I didn’t separate allot of the pieces- I was told that would encourage frizz, I made sure my hair was completely dry, and I oiled the ends before I untwisted- WHATS THE FABBERNACKLE PROBLEM??
My hair was defined at the root and middle- but a poof ball at the ends!!! URBER UGLY!!! Too Big- Too frizzy- I DON’T LIKE IT!!!! This was my 4th attempt at this.. I’ve tried it on dry hair, wet hair, damp hair, flat twist, conditioned hair- WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?
