Natural Skin Care • The Healing Powers of Potatoes

My favorite Health & Beauty Secret I always love to share is the Potato.

You would never imagine all the healing benefits these little suckers have!

I started using Potatoes a couple years ago to combat the dark circles and sun spots under my eyes.

I placed freshly cut potato slices on my eyes daily for about a week. Both the Sunspots and the dark circles had virtually disappeared. That's at least 10 years of Sunspots.. Vanished.

But I heard this was impossible..?!?!?!

And up until now, for me, it has been !

I mean, I have tried everything in the market & Everything Baturally Suggested fir them,, with almost little to no luck.

I had also heard about the Potatoes tightening effects on the skin.m, and as I am always looking for a natural face lift, I had to look further into the anazing benefits of the potato .

Upon experimenting with Potatoes Dor S Couple Months:

Not only did my face brighten & tighten, I noticed that it significantly lightened any redness from scratches or pimples, immediately !

In fact I found Potatoes to quickly, almost immediately heal new abrasions, older scrapes, scars & dark spots.

The Poyatoes were also greay for inflammation, rash or infection. 

They also left my skin feeling really clean, and soft. Tight yet hydrated.


While visiting my girlfriend, her cat saw my dog and  her cat then or proceeded to slice up her face.

I quickly remembered the healing effects of the Potato once again,,

And we raced to the kitchen for a Potato !

Within a minute of holding the moist potato slice to her face,, 

The scratch that had been nearly bleeding was no longer even a trace to be found. 

It had instantly disappeared in appearance and almost entirely healed, leaving no mark or scar, redness or irritation. 


Another one of my girlfriends had a baby boy who suffered his first 8 months with a horrible Eczema. 

Again, we referred back to the slices. 

This again, worked like a charm, IT ALWAYS DOES! 

Relief was instant and the suffering was over.

I've even used them on the most severely chapped lips.. While Blistex is great, sometimes we are beyond its help, and there is no relief - a Potato, again can be the provider of instant relief.

When nothing else on the market works, a Potato will probably work.

The potato is not only known to do have these great benefits just for your skin but it is known to do this for your entire digestive track and various health concerns through out the body as well. 

I will proceed to list both of these categories off for you..

Potatoes do brighten the skin, they can actually have a tendency to bleach the skin. 

This can be great for someone who would like to lighten and brighten their complexion slightly. 

Not so great, for those paying hundreds of dollars for that golden tan. 

In the case in which you have a tan of which you would like to preserve,, 

A Potato Masque or quick tone with the slices is not recommended more than once a week.

Or You Will Be Clearing Out That Tan !


Should you experience break outs, u may have to sacrifice your tan for clear skin for a week or 2 and save face with a potato.

But look on the bright side, if you do tan.,,

You will ultimately and undeniabley get sun spots.

So a couple week's of sacraficing such ging kike a tan, qill actually lead to a brighter more beautiful & sunspot free complexion !

A great complexion is always a great base for a tan!

Potatoes are drenched in Pesticides, so your going to want to make sure that the Potato's you are using have been well scrubbed & preferably organic, definatelu not GMO.

If the are not Organic Potato's it is best to soak them in a mixture of water and either apple cider vinegar, baking soda or even regular vinegar.

Organic Potatoes will always have the most healing properties & benefits, so try to go Organic as often as possible. 


Simply cut slices off and place on your face one slice at a time, one side at a time, until the moisture from each slice goes dry and is absorbed into the skin.

The potato is often wet enough to easily slide around your face.

Press the potatoes on the eyes and hold. 30 seconds, a minute or two.. However your tolerance feels at that moment is good enough.

Potato Paste Masque 

For this you will need a blender and just a tiny bit of water, enough to get the blender to work.

This is really the best way to utilise all the benefits of the potato, as the peel does carry most of the nutrients. So don't worry about peeling it. Just make sure it's extra extra clean.

Put a diced potato and the tiny bit of water in a blender, and blend into a paste.

Voilà, your face paste is complete, and ready to apply.

3 minutes, 5 minutes, 15 minutes... Doesn't matter.


Potatoes get most of there misconceptions from the way they are cooked. The fact that they mostly come to us fried, completely changes the values of a potato. The same Potato that can help aid in weight loss can instead be the direct cause of weight gain and other various health problems.

Potatoes still have medicinal properties when baked or boiled, In fact the boiled water can be used the same way as the potato slices, used in the skin care routine, applied with a cotton round.

Like all veggies, Potatoes are best used in there raw form when both applied or eaten. So another great way to consume potatoes is through Juicing. Juicing is actually the best way to absorb all of the health benefits of any of your  veggies or fruits.

In fact The Gerson Institute is where you can find an entire Health Care Practice dedicated to Organic Juicing Medicines. The Gerson Institute is known to cure many diseases including Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Arthritis, Auto-Immune disorders and many more. I highly suggest you give the page a visit to see what it's all about, if you haven't already heard of it.


Myself, I have been Juicing for a couple months now and I absolutely love it! So you can be sure I will definitely be covering this topic in an upcoming article some time soon. There could even be a Juice Bar popping up in Kit Von's future, that's how much I love them.


Potato juice does need to be consumed immediately when in it is raw form or juiced, it is said that they become poisonous as the brown.
