Yes, it’s potato on your skin! Do that if you want:
- a lighter skin tone
- a clearer complexion (reduces blemishes and other marks)
- to remove unwanted tan
- to lighten dark circles under eyes
Potato contained one of the highest bleaching agent; so actually, potato naturally bleached your skin (when you apply it externally; I’m not sure if consuming potato would have the same bleaching effect — but, to be honest, I doubt that it would)
A very dark skin tone CANNOT be bleached to a totally fair skin tone; however, there will be a noticeable change.
[FYI, there are many other natural goodness out there that contain bleaching properties. But, I only put “products” that I have tried myself and have seen the effects/results on my blog — and that is POTATO! ^^]
How to naturally bleach your skin with potato?
It’s actually pretty simple!
- Soak raw potato slices in cold water for 10 minutes. Rub these slices over face, neck and hands;
- Extract potato juice and make a paste out of it;
- Grate your potatoes and use it as face mask;
if you are too lazy to do all those things…
There you go!
Just slice the potatoes and put it on your face right away! (remember to WASH it)
That’s what I do :-P
I always do this in the morning, so I’m too lazy to do all those preparations.
[But, to tell you the truth, those other three ways listed above would actually give BETTER results – I haven’t tried any, but I’m pretty sure it would, because it is a more proper way.]
Let it stay for long; but no longer that 2 hours.
(some people use it overnight, but I haven’t tried it)
Then, remember to wash your face as well just like after you used other face masks.
Easy, don’t you think? :)
Some precaution and notes:
I do NOT guarantee that this will suit ALL skin types
so it will be safer if you don’t put it on your face for too long if it is your first time.
The potato juice will slightly hurt your eyes if it gets inside, so it will be better to put a potato with not-too-much juices for the area around your eyes.
If you want to see BETTER results, follow this with a healthy diet
That’s it then! And have fun with it!
I personally see noticeable results in less that a week. (four or five days, if I’m not mistaken. But one thing for sure is that it is less than a week.)
I hope this GREAT natural skin bleach will work its magic on your skin as well!
