Tomato masks are a great way to take care of those dark spots that appear on your skin because of exposure to the sun. This facial scrub can also be an effective tool for those of us who have problems with acne, oily skin, or over enlarged pores.

Tomatoes contain powerful nutrients that benefit the skin. These nutrients include:

  • Lycopene - an antioxidant that gives the color red and fights free radicals in your body making it a formidable tool when you are fighting skin problems.
  • Protein - the building block of our body

Other nutrients we find in tomatoes, nutrients considered to be helpful in solving skin problems are:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A

Both these vitamins can help restore dull skin to it's glowing self and restore it back to health. Tomato has astringent properties which help it to remove excess sebum.

If healthy and glowing skin, restored to it's youthful, healthy state sounds like a great idea to you, give this tomato scrub a try once or twice a week.
