  1. Hi

    This is my personal expirement and i am continuing it forever now. So after lockdown my acne increased in number so i grated potato to form a paste and then applied it on the acne area only for a week. My active acne as well as all the acne have disappeared and they don’t even come back. Scars take time to go, so continuing for last one month every night and even acne pits have seemed to be doing better now. Its a magic to me as I have used all the products yet nothing apart from this had helped me. Please do a patch test for sure, as every skin would respond differently.

    1. Hi Saniya. Although potato is considered safe for usage on the skin, I always suggest you patch test anything you use on your skin. If it doesn’t irritate your skin, go ahead and use it. But if you get rashes, redness, irritation etc, stop using it with immediate effect. There are a lot of other face masks I have suggested in another article – https://www.thecuriousmillennial.com/diy-face-masks-acne-scars/. You can try any of these as well.
