Today, I bring you the 6 major beauty benefits of tomatoes, and basically, these 6 reasons are why you must invest in these babies this season regardless of how ridiculously pricey they are now. Don’t worry Tribe, we will be sharing on how to “grow your own tomatoes” soon! 🙂
6 Reasons Why We Need Tomatoes!
1. Tomato, when applied to skin regularly works wonders because it keeps the skin smooth and clean. Ghanaian TV host Sika Osei swears by this!
2. Mixing tomatoes juice with 2-3 teaspoons of lime juice works wonders in reducing big pores. Big pores invite more dirt and grime so it is not at all advisable to have them.
3. Tomato has an acid that helps in clearing the skin and reducing acne.
4. Tomato, along with cucumber juice, can be helpful to people with oily skin as it helps reduce the shine that comes with it.
5. Tomato when applied to the face regularly can give a glowing complexion.
6. Applying slices of tomato helps rid raw and itchy skin caused due to sunburns.
Adding tomato to a fruit salad might not be a wise option, but having it along with breakfast everyday and also applying it to your body regularly is an excellent alternative!
