With or without makeup, our skin is exposed to a myriad of pollutants. Treat yourself with this simple, all-natural homemade mask. You only need one ingredient: T.O.M.A.T.O.
Tomatoes have been documented to provide skin the following benefits:
- Lycopene- fights free radicals
- Vitamin C- brightens dull skin and unclogs pores
- Vitamin A- builds healthy skin
- Anti-aging properties
- Cooling and astringent properties
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser or face scrub. Slice a medium-sized tomato in half. Mash with a fork. Apply juice and pulp over face, avoiding eye area. Leave for 15 minutes or until the juice has dried up. You will feel a little tingling sensation. Wash with warm water. Pat dry. Optional: follow with toner or moisturizer ( I skipped toner and moisturizer because I want the tomato to do its own job).
The results are amazing. I woke up with radiant and fresh-looking face.
Oh! And what to do with the other half of the tomato? Use it to garnish your salad. Talk about multi-tasking.
Fresh and natural. That’s fab!
