[YEA]  10/09/2007: Dodie from LA, California: "I've been taking blackstrap molasses for a week now and thank goodness I've been getting 3 bowel movements a day!! I have a hard time getting bowel movements partially cause of the foods that I eat but I am working on it. Also, my father has the same issues. Also, my face is glowing and I've gotten a couple of comments and how good my skin looks! I hope it doesn't stop working for me."

[YEA]  06/26/2007: Angel from Los Angeles, CA: "Blackstrap molasses can also be applied directly to your skin. A friend told us to do a bsm facial 3x's a week esp. if you live in the city. It tightens the pore, draws out impurities, helps with lines, and leaves a beautiful glow, also left skin very soft. I did notice a difference when I skipped a couple of days. Leave on as long a possible...about an hour...

I thank the God of heaven and earth for all His remedies that He provides right in His nature...fruits, vegetables, herbs, grains, seeds, water, sunshine, exercise oxygen, rest, and of course trust in Him!"

[SIDE EFFECTS]  04/08/2009: Holly from Sydney, Australia: "I have been using borax as a facial cleanser, and it's been great - clean soft skin. However, more than a month later, I'm beginning to see some discoloration, dark pigment, appearing on my left cheek and slowly forming on my right also. Does anyone know what this is all about? I would love continue with the borax, but am thinking of going back to my cosmetic cleanser. Thanks for any feedback."

[YEA]  12/21/2008: Rachel from Montclair, NJ: "Borax instead of soap: After reading all of the information about borax on the earthclinic website, I decided to experiment with it. I started using borax in place of the liquid bodywash that I normally used in the shower. I have always had breakouts on my chest and back and have tried everything (acne creams, soaps, kits for problem skin, alcohol, changing laundry detergent) and never had any lasting success keeping my skin clear from breakouts. Well let me tell you, since I started using the borax to wash myself with, my skin is COMPLETELY CLEAR! I've been using the borax now for about two months straight and will never go back to bodywash. I also started using it on my face and I will no longer buy facial cleansers again since the borax works so well. I still do use regular shampoo. I tried using just borax to wash my hair and the first day my hair looked great but the following two days my hair looked terrible. I now add a small handful of borax to my shampoo and use that with very good results. It is winter in NJ right now and usually I have a lot of static in my hair, but the borax seems to be counteracting that. I attribute the lack of static to the borax as that is the only different thing I am doing.

One last thing, the borax that I am using is the stuff you can get in the laundry aisle."

06/27/2009: Fra from Mineral Wells, Texas replies: "Rachel, I have a question about the Borax bath scrub. Do you pre-mix the powder with water in a container to be used in the shower or do you just use it dry? Thanks. I already use borax and sea salt in one liter of water and drink during the day for muscle and joint aches. It seems to help some."
[YEA]  11/25/2009: Sp from Nashville, Tn replies: "I decided to try BORAX after reading the posts about BORAX on EC. I have been using BORAX for 3 months to wash my body, scalp and face and love the result. Doesn't dry out my skin, scalp, just a clean feeling. Helps with acne breakouts.

I even clean my house with BORAX. One box cost $3.00 and lasts me a whole month. I love BORAX. Highly recommend to others."

[YEA]  05/15/2006: Jack from Toledo, OH: "20-mule team borax gets rid of old skin and revitalizes. I used to get a lot of dry or dead skin on my head and face, I started putting 20-mule team borax in a wash cloth and rubbing vigorously in the dry areas and scalp it feels like rubbing sand on hr skin and face but it makes a great skin cleaner."

Brown Sugar Scrub for Beautiful Skin!

Home Remedy Ingredients:

  • Brown Sugar - 1/4 Cup
  • Honey - 1 Tablespoon
  • Apple Cider Vinegar - 1 Teaspoon

Mix a quarter-cup of brown sugar with one tablespoon of honey and one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Gently scrub this mixture into your face and any skin that needs to be exfoliated and restored. This occasional body scrub is all natural, inexpensive, and incredibly effective!

[YEA]  11/20/2011: Organic Queen from Chandler, Az: "I wanted to share my results of the brown sugar scrub for the face. I almost forgot about how powerful this facial is, I did adjust mine by adding 1 tsp. dark buckwheat honey, 1 tbsp brown sugar, himalayan sea salt or you can use any organic sea salt, & a 1/2 tsp of spring water to form a nice liquid paste. Apply liberally to face & neck. I left it on approx. 20 min, and before washing off completely- gave a gentle scrub all over the face, not too rough.. Then wash w/lukewarm water and pat dry. The end results are stunning, its the best natural exfolialtion to remove dead skin cells. The only other item I put on is grapeseed oil-what a combo! But don't overdo it, exfoliate only 2x a week or even once a week to give your skin time to rejuvenate. I wish all the best and good luck."

07/01/2011: Relish from Mumbai, India: "Hi I am looking for Brown Sugar Face mask recipe but unable to find it through the search Engine. Has it been deleted? Can someone share it? Thanks a lot."

[YEA]  06/17/2009: Tavora from Brooklyn, NY: "Just wanted to thank the person who created/came up with the brown sugar facial scrub (not the one with glycerin)! I tried it last night and this morning and literally - right after rinsing my skin - I was glowing! I looked ten years younger! No kidding! (I'm 30) Because all my focus has been geared towards resolving all my other health issues - my skin care regimen has taken a back seat. I'm so glad I decided to try this. I also plan to use this scrub as an all over body treatment. It's amazing how a recipe this simple could produce such incredible results! No more overpriced and chemically saturated products for me!!! My skin hasn't looked this good since I was 18!!

Thank you again! :0)"

11/24/2009: Samina from Birmingham, Uk replies: "hi, i just wanted to know how to make the brown sugar scrub for the facial? i suffer from eczema and have started the oil pulling yesterday, i tried the ACV but that tastes horrible."

[YEA]  01/31/2007: Cheryl from Denver, CO: "Years ago a plastic surgeon friend told me that I should use an exfoliant like the brown sugar shown on this site and then put vegetable lard (Crisco) on my face, hands and feet three times a week. It is an all natural moisturizer. I am 46 and look much younger than my age. It works."

[YEA]  11/03/2006: Alexis from NY: "A few years ago my cousin and i were talking about skin care. I always had clear skin and always got compliments on it. A few years ago though, my skin started to change. It wasn't glowing, and i was getting more and more blackheads, on my forehead, around my mouth, and of course, my nose. My cousin had given me the recipe of this great at home exfoliator she got from a friend. Cream facial cleanser, like dove, mixed with a good amount of white household sugar. After you mix these 2 ingredients together wet face and scrub for 3-4 minutes. Pat Dry, and then apply clear tape all over entire face (this will take off all the dead skin cells you just scrubbed off!). Peel tape off, you will see all the dead skin cells, it's amazing...follow this up with a good facial moisturizer. I do this regimen twice a week, it works amazing! This regimen cured my blackhead and brought the glow back to my skin."

[YEA]  10/28/2006: Jen from San Diego: "I've had stubborn oily, break out skin issues. I have stopped using expensive creams and cleansers on my skin. I have been using a sugar scrub to exfoliate and salt to banish the acne. Never has my skin looked so fresh."

[YEA]  03/02/2006: M from Cincinnati OH: "I tried the one about making your face feel so soft and smooth by using the brown sugar and honey and ACV and it feels so Wonderful. I have a question about what kind of ACV the kind you buy in a bottle at the grocery store for using for energy and weight loss or is there another kind recommended?"

06/21/2008: Royce from Milburn, Oklahoma replies: "To answer a question for M from cincinnati Oh, I have to name a product name. I have only found one type of apple cider vinegar that matches ted description of the real thing it contains the mother and when it burns it leaves the ash, it looks like dirty water and if you held it uo to the sun light in a clear jar its cloudy, you need to shake it up before each use it is not distilled and pretty and red it is organic and natural. it is called _____ apple cider vinegar. it is very strong so dont use too much make sure to buffer it with the b soda because if your body does not contain enough alkalizing minerals or bicarbonates you may make your symptoms worse."

[YEA]  11/21/2005: Anelisa from Mesa , AZ: "Brown Sugar face and body scrub:a brown sugar face scrub gives me a wonderful glow and everything you need to make it is in your kitchen. this first recipe is for the face scrub. one fourth of a cup of brown sugar, one tablespoon of honey, and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar mix well apply it to the face and gently scrub in circular motions, my friends say "it's like micro dermabrasion for no cost". Also since the holidays are coming up make a bigger batch and add a tea spoon of "pumpkin pie spice" to the mixture it's all natural and it makes a lovely yummy holiday body scrub and you'll be glowing smelling sweet and ready for all those christmas events you may not even need to apply perfume."

08/06/2011: Hannah from London, Kent replies: "Hey thanks for the suggestion. I just used a mix of cane sugar, little of the honey, an added ground almond and acv, and carefully used it on my face. As I was using it, I really felt there was something different here to the typical 'face masks' you buy in the shops. The results were immediate and im amazed! My skins smoother, the large pores on on and around my nose have almost gone and even the dark circles around my eyes have lifted! Thank god I found this recipe!"
09/10/2012: Citygirl27 from Richardson, Tx, Usa replies: "Is regular light brown sugar fine, like the kind that you can pack into a measuring cup? or do I need the type with the large granules like turbinado brown sugar?"

[YEA]  09/09/2012: Cairo from Philadelphia, Pa: "Have to sing my praises for Anjeanette's Brown Sugar/H2O/Egg White Lift regimen. The softness is almost immediate. After three days, my skin was clearer and brighter. After a weak, the glow seemed permanent. I can't help but touch my face and neck during the day just to feel how ridiculously soft it is. I'm 30, ex-smoker, always sleep deprived, and have never really taken care of my skin; I work with teenagers who say they're envious of my skin now. I'm really bad at sticking to skincare remedies, but I will never go back to just washing my face. Try this for a few days. You will be sold."

[YEA]  10/10/2006: Anjeanette from Chicago: "I have combined some of the secrets from Earth Clinic and added my own secret to come up with the ultimate facial!

First, cleanse your skin with a gentle soap like Dove or Palmers. Next, do the brown sugar scrub listed below (1/4 brown sugar, 1 tblsp ACV, 1 tblsp honey). After that, take a cotton ball and apply hydrogen peroxide to your face. This will decrease bacteria on your skin and also lighten dark spots. Take the white of an egg and apply to your whole face. Eggs are full of protein which is what our skin is comprised of. This is called the instant face lift. I learned this from a former drag queen! It tightens and lifts your skin! Leave the egg white on for 30 minutes and watch the magic! Take a wet face towel and gently wipe off the egg white. Follow this with a good moisturizer that contains sunblock as our skin gets a lot of damage from uv rays.

At night before bed, cleanse your skin with soap and apply the hydrogen peroxide again. Sleep on soft, clean pillowcases as they hold a lot of germs and dead skin cells. After about 3 days you will look 10 years younger! My skin has no more pores, my dark patches are gone, and my skin is the softest it has ever been. Now I have 20 yr old guys asking me out and I am 32 now. They think I am the same age as they are. When I tell them my real age, they freak out and say that is impossible. I wind up having to show them my ID. I get carded at clubs and for alcohol now and I love it! Just try it and you will thank God that you did!"

[YEA]  10/15/2006: Karin from Munich, Germany replies: "YEA! Have tried this facial and worked beautifully! Face looks clean and has finally a glow. It also looks much thinner. Thanks Anjeanette for the tip and also to make all this information available around the world. Keep up the good work."
10/03/2008: Shumaila Bhatti from Multan, Pakistan replies: "i have freckles and i m asian, i just wana know that i can use this remedy at my face to cure the freckles esp hydrogen peroxide is good and not harmful for my freckles. pls must help me abot this, i m really tense so help me our pls. i did not use any remedy till yet, just visit ur site but likes ur remedy so much."
[YEA]  07/31/2011: Deborah from New Orleans, Louisiana replies: "OMG! I absolutely LOVE this formula! I'm close to 60- so my skin is definitely in need of repair.... This made it feel like a newborn's behind! I will be doing this on a regular basis and recommend it for anyone who wants fresher skin, tighter skin, and color! Thanks so much for this tip!"
07/31/2011: Tami from Mocksville, Nc, Usa replies: "How often do you apply the egg white remedy? And how often do you use the HP? Will the HP fade brown spots (not related to freckles)on your face? Thanks a bunch to all to contribute to this site."
08/03/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "What strength hydrogen peroxyde do you use?"
