Potatoes are the most widely used vegetable in the world. They don’t have an important role in weight loss diets, but they have a number of other beneficial properties. If you have only valued potatoes on your plate until now, you should know that they are very useful in beauty care too.
To fight wrinkles
Potato juice has rejuvenating effects. Apply it regularly to your face and neck, which is particularly prone to wrinkling. It’s best to use it daily.
A potato mask removes dead skin cells. Grate a potato and apply it on your face and neck. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse with water. Your skin will become clean and brilliant after the treatment.
To dim dark spots
If you have old age or liver spots on your face and your hands, you can take great advantage of potatoes. Peel a potato, grate it and collect the juice. Apply it directly on the skin and wash it off after 20 minutes.
For facial cleaning
Potatoes can be used as a natural cleanser in everyday skin care routine. Apply potato juice on your face and neck and leave it on for 20 minutes. You can use it mixed with cucumber juice.
For dry skin
Mix potato juice with natural yoghurt and add a few drops of honey. Mix to get a smooth blend. Apply the mixture on your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.
Peel a raw potato, grate it and press out the juice. Add a whole egg and then massage the mixture into your hair. Leave on for 30 minutes, and then shampoo your hair. Use the mixture once a week or every two weeks.
To prevent hair loss
Mix potato juice with aloe vera juice and 1 tablespoon of honey. Rub the resulting paste into your hair and especially into your scalp and leave on for 2 hours. Shampoo your hair. Repeat treatment at least twice a week.
