Most often when it comes to some face masks it’s pretty normal to put cucumber slices on your eyes or coat your face with a yogurt mask, but that’s not the case for all foods.
For example potatoes might make you think of dirt and fries but they actually have surprising skin benefits that you probably don’t know about.
And you don’t have to put them in a soup to get these benefits, you can put them straight on your skin, so read on and see HOW IT WORKS!
If you want to enter some vitamins and minerals, you should eat more potatoes or simply apply them on your skin because they are full of vitamins and minerals.
Vitamin B: Different B-complex vitamins work together to protect your skin from sun damage and wrinkles. They also prevent discoloration, dry lips and seborrheic dermatitis, an inflammatory infection that makes your skin scaly and moist.
Vitamin C: This vitamin is vital for skin health, regulates the synthesis of collagen, a structural protein essential for joint health and skin firmness. The antioxidant activity of vitamin C also protects your body form free radical damage, prevents and treats photo damage, help wound healing, keep dry skin hydrated and treat acne.
Iron: Iron is very important for your body and its deficiency can make your skin look lack-luster and gray-looking. And so, getting enough iron in your diet helps you keep your natural glow.
Phosphorus:This mineral is necessary for the growth, maintenance, and repair of all tissues and cells. This extra boost of skin regeneration keeps your skin young which is the dream for many people, especially women.
Calcium: This mineral also keeps your skin moist and healthy. Aging can cause increased loss of calcium in the skin, causing skin diseases such as Darier disease, Hailey-Hailey disease, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.
Potassium: This one is vital to build connective tissue, heal skin lesions, cure acne and prevent premature aging.
Copper: Copper keeps your skin firm by promoting the regeneration of collagen and elastin. It also boosts the production of skin-plumping hyaluronic acid.
It will be easier for you to use potato juice, but you can also sliced or shred the potato and place it directly on your skin.
Just apply it evenly over dry, clean skin and leave on for 5-10 minutes.
Rinse with warm water and pat dry. It’s mild enough to be used everyday, if you want to get positive results.
