Acne is quite common and embarrassing disease that can even be painful. Luckily, acne is not dangerous and it can be treated with some inexpensive ways. A simple vegetable from your garden can help you solve your frustrating acne problem.
Tomatoes can cure acne
Tomatoes can help you solve acne and scars caused by this skin problem. The vitamins in tomatoes, such as vitamin A, B6, C, E and K, nourish your skin and shrink the skin’s pores. Tomatoes also reduce the chances of having an acne breakout, as they balance the skin’s pH levels. Many commercial acne treatments contain salicylic acid, an ingredient found in tomatoes.
Ways to use tomatoes
Here is how you can make tomatoes part of your routine:
Cut a tomato in half and rub and massage the affected area of your face. Rinse afterwards. This treatment is excellent for those who don’t have enough time and still want to solve minor acne breakouts.
This face mask is excellent against heavy acne. Slice the tomato, put it under warm water, peel the skin and mash the tomato slices. Apply the paste on the face, leave it on for 1 hour and rinse afterwards.
Add yogurt and mashed cucumber for painful acne.
Face wash with tomato juice
Mix 1 tablespoon of tomato juice and several drops of lemon juice. Apply on the affected area, leave it on for 5 minutes and afterwards rinse with warm water.
