Fab & Natural: DIY Tomato Face Mask

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!
