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:
- start with a clean face
- applied my toner ( rose water) with a cotton ball, pat dry
- pour a quarter size amount of the MOM into your hands
- "blot" it all over your face
- rub it all in- all over the face
- allow it to dry ( 1-2 minutes)
- you may see chalky/white residue ( which was fine for me)
- complete your makeup application ( foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, etc)
- finish with powder ( I used a translucent powder)
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)
