    Default Simple 2 ingredient Boric Acid Paste for treating demodex, fungus, acne on the face.

    You can take 2 ingredients: Boric Acid Powder and Glycerin to make a paste for treating skin conditions. I haven't tried this version. It may be helpful to those outside the US who cannot easily buy 20 Muleteam Borax powder. Boric Acid Powder is available on Amazon UK. Borax and Boric Acid powders are anti-microbial and both can kill insects like demodex skin mites.

    This YouTube has a makeup artist showing how to make the paste:

    20 Muleteam Borax powder makes a good DIY shampoo and bath soak. That I have tried and it worked for me to treat itchy skin caused by demodex. Borax is anti-microbial. OB/GYN Doctor's have recommended borax soaks for patients with persistent yeast infections.

    The borax paste can be left on the face to treat for a time. If needed follow with a dilute Cider Vinegar rinse to rebalance your skin pH if needed. Don't get the vinegar in your eyes, it burns.

    Boric Acid Powder is available on Amazon and Amazon UK. In the UK its about $13.99 USD.
