Wash the potato before peeling. Ishita notes that washing the potato after you peel it actually washes away its beneficial properties. A big no-no!

Peel the skin completely off the potato. Do not wipe or rinse it as the starchy juice is valuable.
Cut the potato into round slices, about ½ inch thick.
Prepare your skin by cleansing it using your normal routine (soap, water, olive oil, etc.) as the first step.
Grab a slice of potato and start massaging it into the skin, rubbing it in circular motions all over the face. Ishita calls for you to pay close attention to dark spots and other problem areas, and to continue rubbing for 10 minutes. Leave it on and allow the potato to do its work.
Place ½ of your raw potato into a grinder or blender and crush the juice out of it. Remove the pulp and other large pieces until you have enough juice to cover your face.
Potato contains vitamins and minerals that help make it an ideal beauty treatment for men and women. Ishita also states that potato can help with facial hair, sunburn, and overall skin texture, but to avoid using it on broken or bleeding skin. With this particular technique, it’s important to give it time to work over the duration of 7 to 8 days.
Pour the juice into a small bowl. If the pasty texture bothers you, you can add a little aloe vera juice to the potato juice, but please— do not add water!
8.Dip and Dab It
Dip a cotton pad into the bowl and dab the juice onto your face. The idea is to use it as a facial mask, so allow it to dry for 20 minutes.
Once dry, take another slice of potato and massage the skin again. The circular scrubbing motion you use will gently exfoliate the skin. Ishita points out that this can be done on the face, armpits, or other regions.
Rinse well. Store any remaining juice for up to 4 to 5 days.
