Potatoes are also good for treating uneven skin tone on skin. An uneven skin tone can make us look older than we really are. Commercially made bleaching skin care products may harm the skin because of the chemicals it contains. That’s why choosing a natural product like potatoes to brighten skin is a good idea.
An easy and effective face mask that's claimed to treat an uneven skin tone is one made with potatoes and yogurt.
Yogurt contains lactic acid which helps to kill bacteria on skin plus the milk in yogurt moisturizes and softens the skin leaving it soft and smooth.
To make the face pack first finely grate a small potato (skin removed) and mix it with a tablespoon of plain yogurt. Apply on clean face and leave on for 15 minutes. Then rinse with warm water using a wash cloth.
