Picture of PROVEN WAY TO CLEAR ACNE
Here is a proven way to clear acne naturally.  Let me tell you  a true story about a young man that had a terrible case of acne.  About twenty years ago a dermatologist was skiing at Mt Hood skiing resort. She went to the desk and there was a young man there assisting customers.  He had the worse case of acne that she had ever seen.  When the doctor approached the young man she asked him if he was interested in clearing up his acne.  Of course his answer was yes. 

She said that when our hormones are very active it causes acid to build up in our stomach which causes acne. 

She told him that if he would juice a raw potato in a juicer and drink the entire solution of the raw potato juice a couple of times a day for several days it would clear up his acne.  She explained that the raw potato juice neutralizes the acid build up in the stomach which causes the acne.  

A year later she was skiing again and he approached her but she did not recognize him.  He thanked her for sharing the valuable information that transformed his life.

Step 1: Grandson's version

Picture of Grandson's version
My grandson heard this story when he was a teenager and  and it worked for him. Every-time he broke out he would use this treatment and it cleared up his acne. He did not like the taste of the potato juice so he juiced an apple with the potato and it still worked for him.  Doing this will change the PH of the potato juice so I am not sure how well this will work for someone else who might have a very bad case of acne.  You might experiment trying different veggies or fruit.  Try adding a carrot if you can't stand the potato juice by itself.  I tasted potato juice and I can drink it alone.  All I know is just plain old raw potato juice clears up acne.  

Of course again balancing the bodies PH levels is very beneficiary to a healthy complexion, as well as avoiding chocolate, sodas, coffee, and highly processed foods. Refer to my other instructables on health to understand PH in-balance.

Did someone try this method? Does it work?
sunshiine (author)  bartaub5 months ago

Thanks so much for your question. I have not had anyone come back and comment about this working but when my grandson was a teenager he used this method every time he had a break out and within a few days it cleared up. I should add he never had a severe case though but it was bad. Here is a link to a doctors comment about it and if you would like to try straight honey I have a hunch it just might work also. I have not tried it but I recently read something about the benefits of honey. Please come back and comment if you try this and I will give you a 3 month pro membership. Here is the link: http://omtimes.com/2012/10/12-benefits-of-potato-juice-a-very-healthy-drink/

Thanks and do have a splendorous day!

Sorry,but it seems very unlikely that this is true. I remember,as teenagers, we were eating raw potatos to deloberatly cause a small fever,to getout of going to school. It can't be good for acne, or anything else.

Thank you for your comment. I have seen it work and here is a doctors article about its benefits. Have a splendorous day!

h-how...much would i have to rink...? *gags at the thought*
sunshiine (author)  Kerushii2 years ago
I am sorry it took so long to reply to this, my Pc died! The juice from one potato which is about 1/4 cup maybe less depending on the size of potato. It does not taste so bad actually.

One should definitely use caution when trying this remedy. I remembered reading a long time ago that raw potatoes were poisonous. I went ahead and looked it up. It's #1 on the list here: http://listverse.com/2009/01/06/top-10-poisonous-foods-we-love-to-eat/



Maybe boiling/heating the juice before drinking it would help lower the risk of poisoning?

The poisonous attributes of potatoes would make a lot of sense considering people reporting stomachaches from just eating the potato.

Drinking apple juice and washing your face with tomato jucie/pulp will also help in reducing acne and scars

You are welcome. I would try the bottled juice, what have you got to loose? It might just work.
wow thanks! i really appreciate the time spent on my comment!
sunshiine (author)  ducktape.mac4 years ago
I found where you can buy it, but from what I understand it is drinking the raw juice that helps clear acne. Here is the web page that I found. It has a lot of information on it http://blog.biottajuices.com/blog/potato-juice-2.

Thanks for your comment.
if u dont have a juicer do u think a blender would work ?
sunshiine (author)  alexandraw994 years ago
I have not heard from anyone who has used a blender but one person just ate the potato and said they had a stomach ache later. I would think it will be pretty safe to use a blender with no bad stomach ache because it does chop it up fairly well. Might consider using distilled water instead of drinking water from the city if you need to make it more drinkable. City water could change the PH level. With a juicer it does not need water it is fine the way it is.

hi...I just wanna ask something,is it ok if I'm going to eat the potato than to make it juice?Do you think it can also be advisable to prevent the acne if the potato is eaten???thanks!!
sunshiine (author)  cutee4 years ago
It can't hurt to try this method. Chew it slowly and thoroughly. I have had others ask me this but no one has replied back except one that said she got a stomachache from eating it. I believe the juicing makes it much easier to digest but that is just a guess.

Wouldn't this expose you to a lot more glycoalkaloids than necessary? I don't know an easy way to test potatoes for glycoalkaloid concentration, but I know higher concentration is found just under the skin so at the very least peeling the potato is probably better if you're going to try this.
