Bleach Your Dark Skin
If you have an oily skin type then you can mix equal quantity of lemon and potato juice. Add some raw honey in it and apply it on your face, neck and other dark parts of your body to fade them.

Skin Bleaching and Dark Circle Removing Remedies
My personal tips:
Wash your face with water and a gentle face wash. Take some potato juice and apply it on your face and gently massage your facial skin in circular motions. Wait for 5 minutes and again apply a layer of juice on your skin. Now, wait for 10-15 minutes and then wash your face. Doing this regularly will give you fair and even skin tone. It also helps cure problems like sunburn, blemishes, blackheads, acne, wrinkles, inflamed skin, sagging skin etc.
If you have dark circles under your eyes then place two thin slices of potato on your eyes or use its juice for this purpose. Repeat these daily to get rid of your dark circles problem at home. You can also mix a small amount of rose water to make this treatment even more fruitful and refreshing. Catalase enzyme, which is abundantly present in this vegetable, helps fade the dark circles overtime.
These were some beauty recipes using potatoes. Moreover, this vegetable can also be used to treat inflammation, burns, itchy skin, rashes, insect bites, scalp issues and hair problems.
