If you are suffering from oily skin or acne, try this simple remedy. Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C making it helpful for acne prone skin. Being naturally acidic it helps balance the skin and get rid of excessive oil. Tomatoes are also packed with antioxidants and brightening properties. Give it a go and see how you feel. This remedy is very refreshing.
Let’s make the mask! Get a nice ripe tomato. Smell it first to appreciate it. Cut in half, squeeze it a little and rub it into your skin. Leave it for about 10-15 minutes. Rinse with water, pat dry and moisturise. Easy, but effective. Great for those suffering from acne as it brightens the skin and stops bacteria from spreading.
If your skin is not too sensitive and free from acne scars, but quite oily, try sprinkling a little bit of salt on the tomato halve. Then again, rub it into your skin in slow circular motion. Don’t push it too hard. Rinse and moisturise.
You should only do this procedure in the evening. The mask is quite drying so it might feel slightly uncomfortable, but If you think it stings too much, rinse it off immediately.
