Acne or pimples are the worst nightmare for many people as not only that they are not a comfortable skin issue, but they are as well as extremely embarrassing. Moreover, they are painful and can cause discomfort.
This skin inconvenience can trouble us a lot and because of that we need to take certain measures and to solve this issue.
In this article we shall present you certain tips that can help you to successfully clear your face. We recommend the use of tomato for acne and pimples that have appeared unexpectedly during the night.
This product is packed with vitamins A, C, E, K and B6 which tighten the skin and meanwhile properly nourish it. The tomato is known for its acidity which balances the pH of the skin and in that way the skin will be far more immune to various types of rashes.
In addition to this, the tomato is packed with water and antioxidants, which will properly moisturize, repair and regenerate the skin tissue meanwhile fighting premature aging.
Due to all these incredible benefits make sure to include the tomato in your skin care routine and in that way purify your facial skin from acne and pimples.
The use of a tomato as a skin healing agent
There are two beneficial masks for your skin based on tomato.
The first one is in a form of an exfoliating mask
Here it is how to prepare it: hold your tomatoes in warm water for 1 minute and after that drain them properly. First you need to peel them and then remove the pips. Next, start crushing them till a paste is being formed. Use this paste onto your face and leave it to act for an hour prior washing it off. Repeat thistreatment once per week.
You can boost the benefits of this mask if you include yoghurt or cucumber puree. The presence of yogurt will add a rich content of zinc and lactic acid into your mask which will treat the various imperfections and scars on the skin. The cucumber will offer the refreshing effect which will tighten the pores.
The second one is in a form of an antioxidant mask
Prepare this antioxidant mask by mixing 1 tablespoon of tomato juice and a few drops of lemon juice. When you obtain smooth texture apply it onto the areas of your skin affected by imperfections. Leave the mask to act for 5 minutes, and after that wash it off with lukewarm water. The presence of lemon juice will enhance the antioxidant effect of tomato as a result of the content of vitamin C.
Have in mind that this mask must be used once per week and only at night due to the photosensitizing effects of the lemon.
An anti-acne massage
For doing this massage treatment you need first to cut the tomato in halves and use the slices to rub the affected parts of the face. Leave the tomato juice to act for around 15 minutes, and after that period of time wash it off. The effectiveness of this massage still needs to be proven, and that also counts for the effect against free radicals, impurities and dehydration.
Be careful about following things:
According to the dermatologist Véronique Gassia we need to be careful about the choice and use of exfoliation techniques. Excessive use of these techniques can lead to hypersensitive skin that can get easily irritated. This type of use can lead to micro-inflammations, skin irritations, or premature aging of your skin.
Therefore, you should apply an exfoliating mask only once per week.
