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.... :huh:

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!

potatoes don't actually workkk .. -_- 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 :crazy: It feels REALLY gross and cold. :ph34r: 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;
