  5. Soothes and calms irritated skin: Borage oil's anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties can help to soothe and calm irritated skin, making it a good choice for people with sensitive skin.

  6. Regulates sebum production: Borage oil can help to regulate sebum production, making it a good choice for people with oily or acne-prone skin.

  7. Protects against environmental damage: Borage oil's antioxidant properties can help to protect the skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals, such as pollution and UV rays.

  8. Nourishes the skin with vitamins and minerals: Borage oil is rich in vitamins and minerals that are essential for skin health, including vitamin E, vitamin A, and magnesium.

  9. Reduces the appearance of dark circles: Borage oil's anti-inflammatory properties can help to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
