But, before we jump right in, we need to understand the difference between blackheads and whiteheads . ( Most of the time the treatment for both are the same – MOST OF THE TIME)
Dark circles have been a huge problem for my mother, and for years I’ve seen her use this Potatoes for her dark circles. Yes! you heard it right, POTATOES. Potatoes are known to have several benefits for the skin.
My mother has been using potatoes for her skin for many many years now and I can say it has worked wonders for her.
But why Potatoes
According to My Dark Circles Blog, potatoes contain catecholase (or catechol oxidase), an enzyme that lightens skin. When potato, along with its effective enzyme, is placed under the eyes, dark circles get lighter. Eventually, with long term use of potato as an under eye treatment, dark circles can diminish to the point where they are practically invisible.
The easiest way to use potatoes for under eyes, is to slice up a two pieces of potatoes and place that on your eyes for 30 minutes. Doing so twice a week will result in lightened under eyes.
The other alternative is to grate half a potato and place that on your eyes using a cotton pad. I find this method works better as the juices penetrate a lot better than sliced up pieces. This is what my mother has been doing for years now.
