Tomato Juice Reduces Skin Oiliness

You can use the juice and the pulp of the tomato to fight any excess oils on your skin. The directions to this mask are simple to follow.

Cut a ripe tomato in half.

You can scoop the pulp out of the tomato or just rub the half of the tomato on your face rubbing the pulp onto your skin. Let it sit on your face for about 15 minutes. Let it sink in and penetrate deep into the pores of your skin.

Rinse off with warm water. Then rinse your face with cold water.

Repeat once or twice daily.

Tomato Juice Cleanses Your Skin

You can wash your face with tomato juice, rinse it, dry it and apply face moisturizer to give yourself a glowing look.

There's nothing like a little sugar to exfoliate your skin and along with the benefits you are getting from that tomato, your skin should look youthful and healthy all day long. It will also feel smooth as can be since that sugar scrub removed all those dead, dry skin cells. Rinse your face with warm water and then give it a splash or two of cold water.

Tomato Juice Relieves Skin Irritation

Itching and tomato juice? Really? Yes, really. Tomato juice can reduce itching, redness, scaling skin, and general skin irritations. The juice from a tomato is acidic and that can help regulate the PH level of our skin, correcting some skin problems with it.

A great little face mask combo is tomato juice and yogurt.

Mix some unsweetened yogurt with some tomato juice to make a thick paste. Apply it to your face and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, give your face a splash or two of cold water, and pat your face dry gently using a soft towel.

Tomato Juice Tightens Skin Pores

Another one of the benefits tomato juice has on your skin is the ability to tighten your skin pores. Tomato juice acts like a natural astringent. Wide pores are very noticeable and dirt and debris can accumulate in them causing dull looking skin and blemishes. Tomato juice will help to constrict those pores and help your skin become clean and glowing. Don't buy an astringent when you have a tomato in the house...just rub that tomato juice on your face before you go to bed. Wash it off the next morning using warm water. Splash your face with cold water and then dry, gently, with a soft towel.

Tomato Reduce Acne Outbreak

Is tomato juice a natural acne cure? Tomato juice isn't an overnight cure, it is slow and steady. You will need patience when you are dealing with acne and it's prevention. That's not always easy but if you add a tomato or tomato juice into your daily facial routine it can help restore the PH balance of your skin, help to balance the sebaceous oils in your skin, and help your skin become healthy and glowing. Give it a try, it can't hurt. Just remember to be patient.

Take a tomato or tomato juice and rub it into your skin using gentle, massaging motions. Let the juice dry on your skin and keep it on for about an hour. Then rinse with warm water, followed by a cold water splash. Dry your face using gentle motions and a soft towel. Keep doing this until your acne breakouts stop...and then continue to incorporate tomatoes into your daily beauty and face cleaning routine forever. Why stop using it if it works?

Okay, so you have blackheads. What do you do?

You can use the tomato juice to cleanse your skin by massaging, gently, it into your face on and around the problem areas. You can let the juice stay on your face and rinse it off later with warm water. And then splash some cold water on your face too. Grab a soft, dry towel and pat your skin dry.

You can also make a face mask out of Avocado and tomato juice tо help you clean your face and remove blackheads. This mask will also help to reduce the amount of oiliness you have on your skin, it will tighten pours and it will moisturize your skin. And it will do all that without any harsh ingredients or chemicals, just all natural Avocado and tomato juice. Mash the two ingredients into a paste and apply it gently to your skin. Let it sit about 20 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Just like all the other skin care treatments on this page, give your face a second (and even third) rinse with cold water.
