Top 2 benefits of potatoes for skin and hair


Use potato juice for skin lightening

Enzyme known as catecholase that can be found in potatoes has natural skin whitening properties. If you use daily potato juice topically you can brighten skin a bit, but you’re always at risk for skin irritation.


Use potato juice for better hair growth

Potatoes are loaded with nutrients that nourish hair follicles and promote hair growth naturally. Potatoes also clean the scalp and unclog hair follicles, and this stimulates hair growth too.
