Potatoes: Good for You and Your Skin
nWe know you know that eating potatoes with the skin on is good for you. You’ll get more nutrients like potassium and Vitamin C, plus extra fiber. And, you probably also know that cooking potatoes in their skin helps keep more of the nutrients locked in.
nBut did you know that potatoes (and their skin) are also good for your skin?
nThat’s right. Potatoes can be both a nourishing food and a fantastic mask.
nPotatoes have what it takes to nourish skin from the inside out. One reason is the high copper content. One baked potato gives you 75% of the copper you need in your diet. In your body, copper joins up with zinc and Vitamin C to build the elastin fibers that support your skin (and counter wrinkles!). The Vitamin C in there is also an essential compound for protecting your skin from the damage cause by sun, stress, and damaging environmental factors like wind and cold.
nSweet potatoes also give your skin a health boost. Like other orange-y/reddish vegetables, they’re loaded with the antioxidant beta-carotene. Studies show beta-carotene can help protect your skin against sun damage by countering some of the effects of UV sunlight. UVA exposure has been shown to cause premature aging (wrinkles AND spots!). That’s probably why we’re seeing a lot of beta-carotene in so many cosmetic products.

nOf course, eating potatoes isn’t the only way potatoes can help you perfect your complexion. They also work wonders from the outside in, packing a powerful nutrient punch that may help your skin look more youthful and refreshed, helping to soften the appearance of lines and brighten and even out skin tone.
nMixing a facial mask isn’t like baking a cake: no real recipe is needed. Just shred a potato and hit up your pantry for other face-loving foods. Try mixing potato with honey, which has antibacterial properties and brings moisture to your skin. Or, add oatmeal, which is great for dry, irritated skin. Mashed avocado and/or shredded or juiced cucumber can also help sooth and soften. Just make a mask with what you have on hand, apply to clean, dry skin and leave in place for 20-30 minutes.
nYou can also pull out your juicer and make a potato face wash. Use a cotton pad or clean cloth and then rinse with water. This treatment can help clean away oil, dirt and bacteria. For added refreshment, chill your wash in the fridge for 30 minutes before using.
nIf you’re pre-mixing, remember that potatoes can oxidize quickly. You might consider adding a tad of lemon juice or vinegar to your concoction and storing it in the fridge in an airtight container. If you have sensitive skin, don’t go overboard there.
