Fade dark under-eye circles
The Spaniards are notorious for their all-night partying, so in the morning they have a remedy to fade those dark circles from under their eyes. They take a potato and thinly slice it. Then, they apply the slices on their eyes for 10 minutes, allowing the juices to seep in the darkened areas and fade them away. The juice contains the enzyme catecholase, which is used in cosmetics as a skin lightener.
