Did you think that potato is only used for making delicious cuisine? Then I must tell you, my friend, you’re wrong. Potato is not only meant for eating, it can be used for skin care as well. We’ve already discussed a lot about uses of potato for eliminating blemishes. But this time, we’re here to tell you how potato water can be used to vanish wrinkles. Yes, you heard it right! Potato can be your risk-free anti-ageing solution.
Potato is rich in vitamin C which I’ve already told, is good in boosting up the collagen production in our body. Collagen is the protein which is responsible for the elasticity of our skin, due to which our skin doesn’t develop wrinkles during our early age. But as we grow old, the connection between elastin and collagen is broken, which makes our skin aged. Potato is also rich in zinc and copper which eliminates the fine lines on the face and makes your skin smoother.
