Brightening Potato Honey Face Mask


How can I use potatoes to create a facial mask?


There’s no need to splurge on expensive, chemical-laden masks from the drugstore when you can make one from common kitchen ingredients! This creamy combination will give skin a lovely glow, while gently exfoliating and tightening pores.


  1. Using an electric juicer, juice 1 raw medium-sized Idaho® russet potato with the skin on. If you don’t have a juicer, cut the potato into cubes and place it in a blender with a few tablespoons of water. Blend on high, then pour the mix through a fine mesh strainer to remove any remaining fibers. Then, pour the potato juice in a bowl and stir in 1 teaspoon each of lemon juice and honey, and 2 tablespoons of plain Greek yogurt until fully combined.
  2. Refrigerate the mixture for 1 hour.
  3. Using a cosmetic brush or your hands, apply a thick layer of the mask to your face and allow it to rest for up to 30 minutes.
  4. Rinse off the mask gently with cold water, avoiding mixture to get into the eyes.
