Here are few tips on how to take care of your skin in a healthy way!

1. Natural cleanser: Rub raw potato paste on your face. Leave on for 25 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. It will impart a natural glow to your skin.
2. Sunburn protection: Before stepping outside, apply potato juice on your skin. It helps you protect your skin from the harsh sun rays.
3 .For wrinkle free skin: To prevent wrinkles and black spots, wash your face regularly with cold potato juice. It will help reduce blemished and leave your skin soft and glowing. Also, potato can be used as a bleaching agent. You can massage your face with a slice of raw potato as it helps in lightening the colour of your skin. Do not wash the slice before massaging the face as it will lose its natural properties and goodness.
4. Treating acne: Potato can help fight acne. Scrub raw potato paste on your skin to get rid of acne and pimples.
5. Soothing for eyes: To lighten dark circles, keep two potatoes slices on your eyes. You can also make a pack of raw potato paste and apply on your face to reduce swelling.
