Home remedies by Sheetal Rawal

Throughout history, potatoes have been used not just in cooking but also in skin care. They have been used to treat a variety of skin ailments like warts, burns, and frostbite. However, potatoes can also be used to address many skin issues such as pigmentation, blemishes, and premature aging. Today, we look to the wisdom of the past and realize we should include it in our home remedies. Potatoes can be the star of your next meal as well as the star of your next remedy! Do you have dull, uneven skin? A potato (and these 8 home remedies) may be able to lend a hand.

1. Use Potato & Lemon for Ageless, Even Skin

In case you were not aware, potatoes have Vitamin C, which works as an antioxidant and can prevent damage caused by sources like the sun, pollution, and smoke. Vitamin C also helps with collagen production, and more collagen helps smoothen wrinkles and improves overall skin texture. Meanwhile, lemon juice is another ingredient that may prevent oxidative stress-induced premature skin aging. Combining Vitamin E oil with the Vitamin C present in potatoes and lemon juice enhances Vitamin E’s bioactivity. This can lead to improvements in skin rejuvenation and ameliorates wrinkles, fine lines, skin firmness, blemishes, hyperpigmentation, and radiance.

Ingredients

1 tsp. of fresh potato juice

10 drops of fresh lemon juice

4 drops of Vitamin E oil

Instructions

In order to get fresh potato juice, take a potato and either pound it or throw it in a juicer.

Once you have enough for a teaspoon, mix the potato juice with the fresh lemon juice and Vitamin E oil.

Dab on the face evenly and leave it on for 10-15 minutes.

After this, wash your face with lukewarm water. Use your toner, serum, and lotion right afterward.

Use this recipe one to two times a week.

"I’ve been using ROOP for about four months now. My skin before had patches, and ever since I started using ROOP, I’ve noticed that the patches have started fading away...It’s a great product, and I feel like it’s helped me a lot for my skin. I highly recommend using ROOP to everyone."
