Potatoes!!!!!!

28 posts in this topic

Ive been reading that rubbing a potato on your spots will fade them wicked fast, so I have been trying it.

The Routine:

Grab a potato and slice it up. Take a slice and rub it over your spots until it dries out and you cant feel anymore juice on it. Grab another slice and do the same thing. How long it stays on your face varies; you can either let it sit on your face or you can wash it off.

Advice - Apply a light moisturizer to your face so it doesnt dry out too much.

The Benefits:

"The raw potato juice is effective in cleaning skin blemishes due to high content of sulfur, potassium and chlorine. Care should be taken that potato is raw in nature as they are composed of live organic atoms."

-http://www.beautyfeast.com/Skinproblems/Tips-acne.htm#

Also, the vitamins in the potato help improve your skin, and the alkaline in the potato breaks down the bacteria in the pores, and potatoes have amazing acne swelling reduction properties.

Hmm, any reasons why?

They say its just like lemon juice, and Ive heard people get pretty good results. I tried it last night and one of my stubborn red marks is now just a pinkish color. :P

Ive tried it on a fairly big spot on my cheek, and Im amazed at how it faded so well. Now its only pink and isnt that noticeable. A little concealer and it looks perfect. :) Im going to start working on my small spots on my forehead. :)

well i can imagin you look real stupid rubbing a potatoe against your skin but hey

are you just using it on a small area at a time then?

and where did the red marks come from was they from cysts or just regular spots?

also are you leaving it on you skin for a while or are you like just rubbing it in for a a little while?

Well, I pretty much just wanted to test it out, but Im trying it one area at a time. i.e: forehead, chin, cheek, etc

The spots were from left over acne

What I did was take one whole potato and chop a slice off and keep it on the spot until it dried out. I'd rub it, squeeze it, etc, then when it dried out slice off another piece until it was all gone, lol.

Thoughts/Ideas?

Has anyone used this and had great results?

I go against what some of these people are saying.. Why not try it? What's the harm? Potatoes are a lot cheaper than tons of acne products out there.. and there are some sites out there that say they can help with redness.

Best wishes!

I'm glad it's working for you. Don't worry if it seems stupid rubbing a potato on your face or not, who cares!!! It's not like your doing it in the middle of the street or at a concert. As long as it works. I'm sure we've all tried some pretty half baked remedies. I can see how it could help since potato's have vitamin C and an alkaline pH, this might help kill bacteria on your face. Just be careful that the spots don't turn a dark brown after, from to much potato, I read this could happen on another site (just giving you a heads up) Keep us posted, I'll try this in a few weeks as soon as I'm done with some other experiments. ;)

I may try it, I have spots that peel then are open again, just won't go away. Even had steroid injections 2 weeks ago, they are still there, under the chin. I heard years ago (25 or so....I have new onset adult acne, hormonal) that raw potatoes are a natural antibiotic, useful for healing infections and wounds. Thanks for the reminder!

I slice the potato and apply the potato to the face. I hold it there on my spot (or go back and forth between spots) until it dries out, then go to another slice.
