If I got back every pennythat 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.
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!
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!
