One of the most desired things almost everyone likes to have (especially women!) is flawless skin. Numerous things can damage our skin, including: poor dietary choices, chemicals, pollution and sun rays. That’s why many women who can afford it buy various treatments to help themselves.
But, one thing is that these treatments are usually very expensive and the other that they are abundant in chemicals which only damage our skin.
Luckily, nature always has its own way to help us! There are numerous remedies for skin whitening and improving the quality of our skin. Potatoes are among the best ingredients we can use! They are rich in an enzyme called catecholase. It is known to be able to reduce blemishes, dark spots as well as acne scars.
Potatoes are also excellent for skin hydration because of their abundance of calcium, vitamin B6 and vitamin C. The nutrients found in potatoes help us improve cell formation, fight free radicals, heal dry skin, maintain skin elasticity and prevent wrinkles.
Additionally, potatoes eliminate dead skin cells and impurities from the skin. They are abundant in mild bleaching properties, which lower hyperpigmentation, lighten the skin and reduce the melanin production.
