Potato benefits for treating acne scars  

Potatoes, along with their role in reducing the effects of inflammation, are thought to keep the skin from spreading pimples. When excess sebum combines with dead skin cells inside the pores, harmful bacteria known as P. acnes can form.

When the body detects these bacteria, it sends an inflammatory response alert, sending white blood cells to fight the infection. This is why most pimples are red, swollen, and painful.

While potato juice certainly won\’t prevent acne, it can relieve acne symptoms by stopping the inflammatory process in the first place.

It is also known that the use of potato juice as a topical treatment reduces the redness caused by acne scars, by naturally lightening the skin, and the results vary depending on the nature of some cases, and the factors affecting the results are the extent of the depth of acne scars and the duration of the scars on your skin.
