Milk Of Magnesia- The "cure"

03 April 2014 - 12:50 PM

Hi all!


I have been wondering for a while about the benefits of using Milk of Magnesia (MOM) on my oily skin. So many people have had amazing results with it that I was considering trying it. However, that was until I found this-


Some pH examples: 

pH 1 battery acid - (acid extreme) 
pH 1.5 -2 = Gastric (stomach) acid 
pH 2.5 = Cola soft drinks 
pH 2 = lemon juice 
pH 3 = vinegar 
ph = 3.5 Orange Juice 
pH 4.6-5.5 = healthy skin 
pH 5.5 = rain, (pure water, when exposed to the atmosphere, will take in carbon dioxide, changing its pH) 
pH 6.5 = milk 
pH 6.5 – 7.4 = Healthy Saliva 
pH 7 = pure distilled water - (this is Neutral pH, neither acid or base)[/color] 
pH 7.35 – 7.45 = human blood 
pH 8.5 = baking soda 
pH 9 = Sea Water 
pH 9.0-10.0 = Hand Soap, detergents 
pH 10.5 = Milk of Magnesia 
pH 11.5 = household ammonia 
pH 12.5 = household bleach 
pH 13 = lye (sodium hydroxide, or Draino)(Alkaline or Base extreme) 


Can anyone tell me the possible damage that using MOM on my skin could do? I understand that something with this high of a pH cannot be good for my skin, but if it will "cure" my oily skin should I risk it? 

I find it strange that so many people have had great results with it, in spite of its dangerously high pH. Can anybody help me out here please? 


Thank you very much smile.png

Waxing After Accutane

12 December 2013 - 10:50 AM

Hi beautiful people,


I think I read somewhere that you should wait until 6 months after finishing Accutane to start waxing, is this true?


I finished my course of Accutane a month and a half ago and I was wondering if anybody else had experience with waxing this soon after finishing Accutane? Or will I just tear all my skin off?


Thanks :)
