Among the most healthy vegetable is the tomato because of its nutritional benefits.
It is rich in Lycopene, a pigment with antioxidant properties.
It is also a real protective agent of cells.
Therefore, you should try some cosmetic treatments based on tomatoes.
1. If you have oily face skin, you can mix some flour with the pulp of a tomato until you get a homogenous paste. Clean you face and apply the mixture; let it stay for 10-15 minutes, then rinse your face with lukewarm water.
You’ll notice that your face will be cleaner, without blackheads, because tomatoes are good for reducing the amount of sebum production.
2. Lotion against acne. Natural juice obtained from tomatoes and water can be applied on the areas with problems (nose, forehead or chin). If it is necessary you can use it also as daily treatment. It is very important to prepare the juice before application and to add mineral water. Do not use this treatment if you have sensitive skin, because its efficiency against blackheads consists of its high acidity.
3. Lotion for every skin type. You can mix the tomato pulp with different hydrating oils for better effects. For instance, mix two tablespoons of fresh pulp with a tablespoon of vegetal oil. Apply this on your face and massage it until it penetrates your skin; rinse with lukewarm water. Very efficient is the olive oil, that is recommended for every skin type, and almond oil for oily skin.
