Potatoes are well known for their skin lightening and brightening ability, so if you are bothered by dark spots or uneven skin tone, this might be a perfect tip for you. They contain phosphorus, potassium, and Vitamins A, B, and C, plus important trace minerals that encourage collagen and promote healing. You can use potato slices, shredded raw potato, raw potato puree or even potato juice. Since potatoes can help with inflammation and lightening skin tone, try applying potato juice (use a cotton ball to apply) or thin potato slices under eyes for 10 minutes. Or, slice yourself a fresh piece and rub that tater all over your face. You can grate and mash potato to make a quick facial treatment - add yogurt or agave if you need to thicken. Add a splash of potato juice to any Fresh Mask mix for extra brightening effects.
Any way that you can put fresh potato on your face is a good way. Apply daily for best results.
Drinking potato juice has been said to be helpful for dry skin, blocked arteries, sciatica, pancreatic and kidney problems, inflammation of joints, diabetes, and even cancer, partly due to its alkaline nature. Use purple or red potatoes for even more benefits!
Try it for detoxing internals like kidneys, liver and gallbladder. Check with your dr for any concerns, or if you suffer from severe stomach problems.
Keep in mind, excess consumption of potato juice can cause diarrhea in some people, so there's that...
Anyway, yay humble potatoes!
