Hey my gorgeous dolls,
So what is that one thing that keeps revisiting you time and again and also leaves timeless impressions on you , well sure for a lot of girls i know , its their dreams and Acne marks lol.. well dreams and their impressions are more than welcome but Acne marks , nah not so much.
But do you know something funny , people with acne marks often are more conscious of their marks than others would notice , others might notice their cute smile or flirty haircut but all they can see is their marks 🙂 , well that has been the biggest irony of mankind , knowing how much more perfect we can become we never really enjoy what we are in the present moment , be it acne marks or love handles its all a part of you and you should not just embrace it but also flaunt it , because that’s YOU .
Sigh….I guess i again wore the philosopher’s hat , let me quickly wear my fashionista one , ahhh here it is 🙂
So lets see how we can show love to our skin more by eliminating those bad boys ( acne scars ) using something as natural and next door like a potato.
We’ll make a DIY potato lemon honey spot mask ( we’ll use it only on the spots )
Juice of 1 potato ( you can just grate it , squeeze it and sieve it )
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 tsp honey
1 cotton pad / ball
How to make it :
Mix the above three ingredients together and then soak a cotton pad in the mix , now apply this on your marks and the area around it , leave it on for a minimum of 30 minutes you might feel ticklish or slightly itchy ( but if its intolerable you might want to wash it off immediately and rub some cold milk or ice on the irritated area , well this is not to scare you but just warn you , i have rarely come across any cases where it becomes intolerable ) the itchy sensation happens because this mix is very high in its acidic value. After 30 minutes wash it off with cold water and apply some almond oil and then moisturize your face well , as this pack tends to dry out your skin , that’s probably one of the reasons why i dint recommend using it on your entire face , however if you are also seeking a fairer skin this is an amazing fairness pack too provided you mix it with some other soothing ingredients , maybe we can talk about fairness in some other post.
Use this pack thrice a week for at least a month , there is no instant magical potion to diminish acne marks unless you choose to wear a concealer 🙂 , but with regular use , you can expect great results and over a span of time you will get back the original even tone you had when you were a baby.
You must use this pack quickly as the potato juice oxidizes soon , and you’ll have to make a fresh batch every time but trust me your hard work will pay off.
How would it work ?
The lime is a very rich and natural source of citric acid , whereas potato has a host of different acids from phosphoric acid to ascorbic to phenolic and don’t forget the small amount of salicylic acid ( used in almost every acne control and spot correction product) and all the amino acids , so if we go for a salon treatment with those babies in there , we are looking at a super expensive chemical peel costing you tons of money in multiple sittings.
But thanks to mother nature and local supermarkets its just a kitchen away from us.
So enjoy your beautiful skin and don’t forget to wear your sunscreen .
Cya Later 🙂
