There are countless skin products that promise to give you silky smooth skin. However, some of these products have harsh chemicals that might do more harm than good. Exposing oneself to such chemicals could result in skin and endocrine problems, and even cancer.
Aside from the possible health risks using over-the-counter skincare products might result in, some of these products could also cost you an arm and a leg. A small container of whitening serum could set you back $130.
If you want to achieve healthy skin free from dark spots, make your own skin paste from natural ingredients.
What you need:
- 1 potato
- 1/2 a lemon (juice)
What to do:
- Dice the potato and put it in a blender.
- Mix the lemon juice.
- Pulse until complete mixed.
- Apply the paste in circular motion on affected areas on your face.
- Leave on for 20 minutes then rinse with water.
You can also try it with cucumber instead of lemon. According to an article in the Huffington Post, “cucumber has skincare benefits including vitamin C and caffeic acid, which both fight to reduce inflamed or irritated skin, and hydration thanks to its high water content.”
