Tomato for the Skin - Review

Tomatoes are a regular item in kitchens all over the world.  They taste good and are indispensable as a food ingredient, however very few people know of its benefits to our skin. Lycopene is an antioxidant which is present in the tomato, and this lycopene is very beneficial to the skin. Whether you consume the tomato or apply it on your skin, lycopene acts as a skin protector. It is known to act like a sunscreen and has anti-aging properties. This antioxidant prevents cellular damage and reddening of the skin because of these reasons tomato is known to be effective as a sunscreen and as an anti-aging product. Apart from these tomato is also known to reduce large pores, prevent and cure acne and reduce skin rashes caused due to sun burn. However to say that tomatoes help only troubled skin will be incorrect, tomato can be extremely beneficial for a normal skin as it helps bring a healthy glow to a relatively dull skin.

Let us discuss how it helps the various skin issues mentioned above.

Generally skin problems such as large pores and acne go hand in hand. One leads to the other. Here large pores, if not taken care of in time will inadvertently lead to acne. What happens is, dirt, dust and grime get embedded in these large open pores and become what are known as ‘blackheads’, if these black heads are not removed, they in turn lead to acne. So the best way to avoid acne is to treat large pores by shrinking them. This is where our humble tomato helps. With regular external application of tomato on the skin these pores shrink to a large extent. 

What if the skin is acne prone due to other reasons? Now in most over the counter medicines for acne contain Vitamin A and Vitamin C to help cure acne. These vitamins along with Vitamin K are naturally present in tomatoes. It is the high level of acidity present in a tomato that helps dry out acne.

For oily skin, tomatoes act like an astringent and in summer days, tomato is a miracle worker for sunburnt skin because of the lycopene it contains.

So how does one use tomatoes to reap its cosmetic benefits? As such a raw tomato can be very beneficial on its own, however there are some excellent face sheet masks available, tomato being its main ingredient, which will make your skin glow and look healthier than ever before.
