Heal Acne and Pimples With Potatoes



By now you all know about the banana peel method I use for treating acne. If you ask me, it is the most efficient anti-acne treatment ever. But since so many people allergic to bananas emailed me with concerns about their allergy I set to find another natural, equally effective way to fight acne, pimples and the scars they leave.

How can potatoes possibly heal acne?

What makes bananas so efficient in drying the skin, healing the spot and cleaning the blemishes is the potassium, sulphur and chlorine they contain.

It turns out that potatoes have 1,5 times more potassium than bananas! They should be able to clean acne, shouldn't they?!


The vitamins and minerals in potatoes help improve your skin, and the acids will clear up your pores. The magnesium will help reduce inflammation and swelling.

Here is what you need to do to heal your acne with the help of potatoes

  1. Wash a medium sized potato. 
  2. Cut a thin slice.
  3. Wash your face. Rub the raw potato slice gently over the irritated area. Rub for about 1-2 minutes or until the potato slice dries out. The potato will gently exfoliate the surface of the skin.
  4. Cut a new slice for the next area you want to treat.

To speed up the results, after rubbing you might want to grate some potato and squeeze the juice. Then cover the acne spots with it and leave it to dry. It will look like this:

Repeat the whole process at least 3 times a day. See the results I got in just 5 days here.

Tip: A diet rich in potatoes will help you heal your acne from the inside.
