      Baking soda and orange juice mask. This combo gets rid of blackheads and is great for treating hormonal breakouts. The baking soda exfoliates and fights acne while the acid in the orange juice tightens pores and the vitamin C brightens. Here are her instructions: 1. Mix 1 tbsp real orange juice with 1 tbsp baking soda (I like to use a shot glass – ha!) 2. Spread a thin layer on face. (There should be enough for two applications, or one if you put it on your neck and décolletage, too, which I do.) 3. Leave on for 20 minutes 4. Dampen finger tips and scrub mask in circular motions for extra exfoliation 5. Rinse The mask will tingle and itch a little so it’s good too have a distraction - paint your nails, watch TV, but whatever you do, don’t talk. As the paste dries, any facial movements will cause it to flake off. Your skin will be pink afterwards (see photo), like as you just peeled off a few layers.
