    lol, my mom once recommended a "potato mask" that was supposed to help clear acne and she wanted to try it with someone. so i agreed, did the potato mask [grated potato] and the next day, i broke out like crazy, and was never able to get my clear face back again.

    so...i wouldn't recommend the potato idea. instead, try cucumbers.

    ^what do cucumbers do? i've always wondered that.... image

    when i searched up google for "potatoes acne remedy", this website said that potatoes r good for whiteheads and they have vitamin c which makes ur skin glow and the alkaline in them helps kill bacteria on ur face. and they also have an exfoliating effect help u get rid of dead skin cells. o, papayas have same effects too!

    =D i wanted to try this.
    i went to a korean store, and the lady said to use potatos with flour.
    never tried it tho.. because i just thought she was insane O_O but now, that i have more insight, maybe i'll try it out for real. =P

    potatoes don't actually workkk .. image but cucumbers actually work because its known that cucumbers will calm the skin & keep it cool . as well my mom heard this from someone . she said to use a boiled egg & roll it on your face or something .. it has to be hot & its supposed to take all the toxins out of your face . since boiled eggs can absorb liquids . and then if you cut inside of the egg you can see like the black stuff , its the toxins from your body o_O i tried it and it worked .

    yea, hard-boiled eggs are good; usually used on bruises.

    I know this is getting a bit offtopic, but can you explain more about the egg thing? It seems cool!

    yes I've done potatoes and milk, and it smelt like puke image It feels REALLY gross and cold. image I don't think I'll ever do that again. It did, however, make my face soft and lighter for awhile.

    I thought potatoes were for lightening skin, and the korean radish (mu) was for acne treatment? I dunno...

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    CUCUMBERS WORK!!!!!!!!!

    I'm usually really lazy to cut up cucumbers and leave them on my face for 15 minutes,
    BUT THEY WORK!
    Every time I do this I get a great result, and it leaves my face toned(?), fresh, whiter, glowing, and clean! ^.^
    I really recommend it~

    You slice up the cucumbers (VERY VERY THINLY~) I have a cucumber slicing thing made especially for my face. (I don't know where you can get it, maybe some asian market places? I got mine from Korea)
    Then, you put them on your face. If the cucumber slice is REALLY thin, it stays on your skin easier than if it's thicker ^^
    Leave it on for 15-20 minutes? I'm not sure~
    Then, I usually wash my face. But I'm not sure if you have to.
    Haha~ Voila!!!!! Cucumber mask is done ^^ It's REALLY effective and easy!


    Don't know about the Potato thing though o.o;
