This Viral TikTok Beauty Hack Claims To Get Rid Of A Stubborn Zit Overnight!

If I got back every penny that I've spent on anti-acne products, I would be rolling in 💸💸💸right now. I'm guilty of spending close to half my salary on skincare and makeup. Products like face serums, cleansers, toners, mudpacks and anything that's labelled anti-acne.

But this pretty much sums up my life:

I am always on a lookout for more affordable options to keep my skin in check, even resorting to homemade face packs. So, when I came across this viral TikTok beauty hack that can supposedly banish even the biggest zit, my mind was blown, to say the least. All you need is a raw potato, a band-aid and a good night's sleep (sounds too good to be true, right?).

TikTok User, @sierrastyles, shared the viral video on her TikTok profile and you can clearly see that she has a huge, red pimple on her right cheek. She says that her coworker suggested that if you cut a raw potato and stick it on the affected area using a band-aid, the acne shall go away in the morning. Sierra does the same but using tape in place of the band-aid and goes to sleep. She removes the potato from her face and that acne, GONE! Like it never existed!

Watch the *magical* video below.

Potatoes are known to absorb oil, soothe inflammation, reduce dark spots and have a considerable amount of Vitamin C in them. Is that the reason why this worked so miraculously? Not sure if this actually worked (as we have no idea when the reveal video was shot) or just a hoax for some clicks but I know what I'll be doing the next time an unwanted guest appears on my face!
