Tomato Face Mask: A Simple Remedy for Glowing Skin
Cut a piece of tomato half and rub all over your face and neck. With slow circular motions, gently rub the tomato onto your cheeks, chin, forehead, nose area and also don’t forget your neck. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes then rinse with warm water. Follow with a moisturizer. You can also use a few drop of almond oil or argan oil to moisturise your face. To restore and maintain beautiful skin, repeat this treatment twice a week.
Tomato and Cucumber Mask: For Soft, Radiant Skin
Cucumbers are pretty amazing for skin. They are a good source of silica which helps to firm up sagging skin as well improve complexion. Cucumbers also do a great job of soothing skin irritations, reducing puffiness and balancing our skin’s pH. Together, tomato and cucumber make a fantastic face mask. You can use this mask if you want an even complexion, and a soft, smooth, flawless skin. Blend the tomato and cucumber till you get a smooth puree. You can also use a grater to make the pulp. Apply little by little and gently massage your face in circular motion. And don’t forget to apply on your neck. Let it soak in for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off. Repeat 1-2 times a week.
Tomato-Sugar Exfoliating Mask
Another great way to use tomato is with sugar. This is especially useful if your skin is oily, dull with whiteheads/blackheads. Sugar is rich in alpha hydroxy acids (or AHAs) which have a renewing effect on the skin. Together with tomato, it helps to exfoliate the outer dead layer of the skin, revealing the inner smoother layer. With regular use, you will see a reduction in blackheads/whiteheads. Also, it will brighten your skin and restore a smooth complexion. Evenly coat a halved tomato with sugar. Using slow circular motion, gently exfoliate your face – your cheeks, chin, forehead, nose and neck. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Use once a week.
