Potato Skin Brightening bleach at home
Skip the harsh chemical bleaches, if you want to eliminate dark spots on your skin. Many people find that chemical bleaches are extremely harsh on skin, resulting in skin problems.
While the chemicals may seem to offer results at first, the results may not last, and you may be left with rough, sensitive, dark skin.
Instead of turning to chemicals for your skin lightening needs, it’s a better idea to go with all natural ingredients.
You may be surprised to find that potatoes may be the answer to your skin lightening needs. Potatoes, along with rose water and either lemon juice or honey, depending on your skin type, offer a natural way to lighten those dark spots so you enjoy lighter, brighter skin.
More than likely, you have potatoes in your kitchen already, so it will be no problem to gather these ingredients and make your own potato brightening facial mask.
Benefits of Potatoes
Potatoes are the main ingredient used in this potato brightening facial mask, and the high amount of starch in the potatoes helps to lighten your skin.
The starch works to fight the dark pigmentation in skin, lightening dark spots and improving overall skin texture. Not only do potatoes offer great skin lightening benefits, but they also are fantastic for removing facial blemishes, eliminating dark circles under your eyes and they offer an excellent treatment for wrinkles as well.
Benefits of Rose Water
Rose water is an important ingredient in this potato brightening facial mask as well and rose water is known to offer a number of skin care benefits.
Rose water helps to improve overall skin tone, which is important when trying to lighten dark spots on the skin. Antioxidant properties in rose water help with skin regeneration and they contribute to fighting free radicals that may result in dark spots or aging.
Other benefits of rose water include treating acne, keeping skin at the proper pH balance, healing scars, toning skim and helping to fight wrinkles and fine lines.
Benefits of Lemon Juice
If you have oily skin, you’ll want to add lemon juice to your potato brightening facial mask.
Lemon juice is a popular ingredient in skin lightening products and the citric acid in the lemons helps to bleach away dark spots, sloughing off any dead skin so lighter, new skin can be revealed.
Of course, it’s important to avoid overusing lemon juice on skin, since it may make skin extra sensitive to the sun.
Benefits of Honey
Last, for those who have dry skin, adding honey to the potato brightening facial mask is an excellent idea. Honey offers some skin benefits that make it an excellent addition to your face mask.
First, it helps to moisturize your skin, so it will keep the other ingredients from drying out skin, locking in moisture.
Honey also helps to protect skin against damage because of the antioxidants it contains. This will keep skin protected from sun damage and free radicals.
