10 Top Homemade Tomato Face Packs For Fair & Glowing Skin


Tomato face packs are amazing for our skin and offers many skin care benefits. I have always preferred homemade face packs made with fresh ingredients that are found in the kitchen and tomato face packs are my favorite. They are my favorite because I always have tomatoes at home and it really makes my skin glow after applying it on my face. The reason tomatoes are so beneficial for skin both when taken internally and applied externally is because they are rich in carotenoids (lycopene, lutein, Beta carotene), vitamins (vitamin E, vitamin C and folates) and phenolic compounds (flavonoids, phenolic acids and tannin's). All these vitamins are vital for skin care, try to both consume tomatoes regularly and use it for skin care to get great results. Here at home, we use tomatoes in our cooking every single day, I also use tomato juice or paste in skin care extensively too. Here are the skin benefits of applying tomato juice on the face: 1. Anti Ageing Properties: Tomato juice is very rich in antioxidants and applying fresh tomato paste or juice topically fights off free radicals which prevents premature skin ageing. 2. For Treating Acne: Tomato has anti bacterial properties and tomato face packs are amazing to use on acne prone skin. It also does not irritate the skin and greatly helps treat acne. 3. For Skin Lightening: Vitamin C in tomato has skin lightening properties and helps fade scars and blemishes well. 4. For Glowing Skin: Since tomato juice is rich in antioxidants, applying it externally as a face pack makes your skin glow. 5. Removes Dark Spots: Tomato face packs are great for removing dark spots. If you have dark spots, try using tomato and lemon face pack regularly. It will greatly help. 6. For Removing Suntan: Tomato face pack are great for removing sun tan too.
