DAILY DOSE | NATURAL REMEDY
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Want PERFECTLY even skin? Nothing is more beautiful than a beautiful even skin tone, hence the reason why foundation was created.  Perfect skin is rare to come by, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.  All it takes is a little TLC skincare–oh, and potatos! Here is a simple way to banish blemishes and their scars using potato slices.

Take one large raw potato and slice into thin slices. Place on face for 30 minutes to help even skin tone.  The bleaching agent in potatos will cause skin to lighten naturally.

    Thanks for posting baby! I found more uses for potatoes on http://www.pioneerthinking.com/ph_beauty.html.

    Next time you’re enjoying your “home spa,” incorporate potatoes into a compress to help alleviate dark or puffy circles under your eyes. Or, use potatoes to help absorb excess oil in your face.

    Compress: Cut or grate a potato and put the potato in gauze. Leave the compress on for 30 minutes while lying down.

    Mask: Apply a grated raw potato as a mask by rubbing the potato on your skin. Leave the mask on for 30 minutes and then rinse off with water and vinegar.

    Cleanser: In a blender, combine 1/4 cup chopped cucumber (do not peel) and 1/8 cup chopped potato (do not peel) at medium speed for 20 seconds. Add 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 whole egg and 1/4 cup plain yogurt; blend on low for one minute. Moisten face with warm water and apply cleanser with a washcloth in circular motions. Rinse clean with warm water.

    Potatoes have been used for centuries in various folk remedies as well. Try using potatoes to:

    > Treat facial blemishes by washing your face daily with cool potato juice.

    > Treat frostbite or sunburn by applying raw grated potato or potato juice to the affected area.
