potato bleachHave dark spots, uneven skin tone or tanning and don’t know how to get rid of them? While there are many cosmetic products available in the market today, let’s not forget the power of herbal remedies. Firstly, they are free of chemicals and are safe to use on one’s skin. Also, they don’t cost a bomb. You may have tried concealers, foundations, skin lightening creams and bleaches to get rid of these problems, now it’s time to try a herbal bleach that actually works.

Grate a potato after peeling its skin. Now add some rose water to it and beat it to make a paste. You can add some drops of lemon juice or honey if you have oily or dry skin respectively. Apply it on your face for at least 15 minutes and then wash away with water. Potato has mild bleaching properties and regular use of this paste will reduce spots and lighten your skin.

    I exactly have the same problem as stated in the first line but just wanted to confirm that somewhere else I read that a combination of glycerin and lemon juice, as well gives good results. What do you think which one the above mentioned potato therapy or the one mentioned by me would be more suitable for my skin which is basically an oily type, often facing pimples problems. Kindly help me!
