I’m still going strong with the ibuprofen/benzoyl mix; I’ve been using it every morning and evening since my post and I’ve seen the most amazing improvement in my skin. Even over the weekend, my skin stayed fresh and only slightly dewy (on weekends, I never use foundation unless I’m going out – just mineral powder for a light evening of my skin tone). I used a bit too much of ibuprofen last night and my skin stung horribly, but hey, lesson learned. Don’t over-do it on the ibuprofen gel.

This week, I bring you a new experiment. During some random YouTube browsing to see if anyone had mentioned the above fix-it, I found another video about oily skin control… and then about a hundred more as I realized that this was not a new development (just one I hadn’t heard of). The strange solution? Milk of Magnesia. Yeahhh, the stomach stuff. I watched this video and read this article and I’ve decided to try it. Don’t worry, I won’t use ibuprofen, benzoyl peroxide and this whacky crap on my face all at once. That’s just asking for trouble.
