Amazing Tomato Benefits For Your Skin
#1 Shrink pores
Tomato juice works as an excellent astringent. Mix one spoonful of tomato juice with 4-5 drops of lemon juice and apply on your face. Rinse with lukewarm water to shrink open pores.
#2 Fight acne
Among other benefits of tomato for skin include its ability to fight acne. Apply a mashed tomato all over your face. Wash it off after an hour and apply a good moisturiser. With regular use you will notice a reduction in your acne.
#3 Remove blackheads
Rubbing tomato slices into blackhead affected areas can help cure your skin of this annoying problem.
#4 Cut out the oil
Oily skin? No more. Blend together the juice of a tomato and cucumber, and apply it on your face using a cotton ball. Done regularly, this will reduce facial oil secretion.
#5 Remove tan
Back from a sunny vacation and want to remove that tan? Cover your face with the pulp of a mashed tomato and wash off with cold water after 15 minutes. If you’re in a rush, add 2 tablespoons of milk to the mashed tomato and wash off after 5 minutes with Olay Moisture Balance Foaming Face Wash with Vitamin E.
#6 Freshen skin
Dull, irritated or sunburnt skin can be repaired with a curd and tomato face mask. Apply this mixture to your face and let it sit for 20 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. Curd nourishes with protein while tomato cools the skin.
#7 Get fairer skin
A blend of tomato juice and honey can give you a fairer and more glowing complexion. Banish dull and drab skin with this magical blend.
