Boldsky | 3rd Dec, 2018 10:01 AM

Loaded with a number of essential nutrients, proteins, and vitamins, potatoes are a preferred choice of many women when it comes to skin care. They are used to treat a number of skin conditions varying from acne to blackheads.

Potatoes are a great source of vitamin C and vitamin B. Vitamin C helps in boosting collagen and protects the body from the damages caused by sun like heat, stress, etc. Vitamin B, on the other hand, helps in skin cell transformation, healthy DNA production and lightens the acne and other scars on the skin.

Let's have a look at how can we cure our skin problems with the help of raw potato.

  • Now, take a muslin cloth and put the grated potato in it and squeeze out the juice. You can also use your hand for squeezing the potato juice.
  • Collect the juice in a bowl and keep it in the fridge for some time - say 10-15 min.
  • Take a cotton ball and dip it in the juice and apply it on the face evenly. Rub it well on the areas affected by acne and acne scars.
  • Repeat the process and then wash your face with cold or normal water and pat it dry with a fresh towel.
