According to Brazilian dermatologist Elizete Kaffer, acne can be fought with a single ingredient: milk of magnesia.
Milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) is astringent, bactericidal and helps control the pH of the skin. It can be used for daily cleansing, to remove makeup and also to whiten blemished skin. It helps to reduce the size of pores, avoiding their obstruction, and to eliminate the shiny effect on the face caused by fat.
Remember that, although it is the advice of a dermatologist, the one who will best know how to inform you about what is best for you is a professional who can check you and keep in mind the particular characteristics of your skin. Not all skins react the same or require the same treatments.
To apply Milk of Magnesia you must dilute it in purified water and apply it with a cotton pad. Also, according to the dermatologist, it can be applied as a detox mask after the bath and removed with water when it dries.
This will help you to remove the fat from the face in a few days, since it will rebalance the pH of the skin. Milk of Magnesia is also used for other things such as: soothing sunburn, treating herpes, as a deodorant, to relieve irritation, or for dermatitis caused by diapers.
