Borax works sooo well for me and my face literally feels so soft. It's really hard for me to be satisfied with the results of many products but this diy home remedy was perfect. I use this twice a week and it really helps unclogging the pores! Add a nose strip and you're good to go! I use this on my back, face, and chest.

(Also heard it can reduce dark armpits but haven't tried it yet.)

Wow!! That's all I have to say about borax. I have found the best product on the market for my stuborn blackheads and clogged pores. I swear just from washing my face once with borax all my blackheads, dead skin and clogged pores are gone.

This is what I do: wet your face with warm water, get about a teaspoon of borax in your hand and then apply on your face AVOID eye area and under eye. Scrub gently with the borax around the problem area, rinse with luke warm water and watch your face glow. AMAZING

After I rinse the borax off I apply a toner 50/50 ACV and water with a cotton pad to minimize the size of my pores, after it dries a apply coconut oil and my face is like a babys bottom :)

Make sure you always apply suncsreen to the face.

I also use borax as a scrub for my body, I used to have back acne and they are almost gone, my skin feels like silk. I swear by borax.

I discovered long ago when I was in college that using Boraxo on my face would not only keep the oils down, but my skin was soft and smooth when I was done and also appeared vibrant looking. As soon as I started using it to wash my face I noticed how acne pimples started going away within a few days. I've been using Borax ever since even though I no longer suffer from acne. It's great especially in the summer time when you just feel like you can't get rid of the grime. This stuff really works for acne. Give it a try!
