Super Home Remedy for Acne

The Potato Treatment

The Potato Treatment for Acne

At a recent speaking event, a reader reminded me of a home remedy she had shared with me several years ago. I’d posted it on my former website and heard rave reviews from people, some of whom said this was the first thing that had actually worked to fix their acne. Substances in the potato liquid inhibit bacteria on the skin, and stop the pimples. Inexpensive, simple and 100% natural, it doesn’t get much better than this.

One potato (any yellow variety, such as idaho or yukon gold)

1.Wash potato well, and dry.
2. Peel potato, collecting the skin in a paper towel or pastry cloth
3.Squeeze cloth holding the potato skin, collecting the liquid in a small bowl
4. Apply the liquid to acne breakouts on the face

Note: it is best to apply the treatment at night and then wash it off in the morning.
