Baking soda, apple cider vinegar and papaya sound like ingredients in a recipe for something you might eat, but they all have a surprising use: treating acne. For baking soda, make a paste of equal parts baking soda and water–2 tablespoons each–and massage it into your face. Rinse after about 10-15 minutes. A tablespoon of lemon juice can also be added to the paste. Simply use apple cider vinegar as a toner to help balance the ph of your skin and help fight acne. You may rinse it after 15-20 minutes, or even leave it overnight. The enzymes in papaya can fight fungus, bacteria and viruses. The tropical fruit is also rich in vitamins and acts as an exfoliant. Simply blend the papaya and apply it you your face as a face mask. It can also be combined with lemon juice, honey or aloe vera.
