Potatoes are my fave! I like adding them to almost every sabzi which I cook. And who doesn’t love mashed potatoes or a simple potato sabzi? It is rich in all essential nutrients needed for our health. But have you ever wondered to use potato on the skin and what are the potato benefits for skin? A very long time ago when I used to make regular visits to the beauty parlors nearby, I remember one lady working in the parlor suggested me to use potato for my facial acne and acne scars. That time all I said was “I do love potatoes but putting it on my face sounds weird!” Until a few days ago I made this potato face mask and fell in love with it! I made it using just 2 ingredients from the kitchen, learn how!

  • Cut the potato in pieces and grate it. (Be careful and don’t get hurt!)
  • Add the grated potato in a bowl and add curd to it. (There is no particular ratio here I have basically eyeballed the ingredients!)

Mix it well and while mixing smash it with the back of the spoon to lessen the lumps. Personally, the lumps don’t bother me but if it bothers you then you blend the potatoes to make a smooth paste and use it.
