Homemade 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.

Why Tomatoes Are Good For Face & Skin Care?

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. You can also read the benefits of tomatoes in detail here.

Can We Apply Tomato Juice On Face Overnight Everyday?

You can apply tomato juice on face everyday. When I was younger, I remember reading an article which advised to rub tomato on the face daily night. I used to do it diligently and it gave me a nice even skin tone.

But I have never left it overnight as I prefer to have clean face when I am sleeping. But if you would like to leave the tomato juice on overnight, you can. It will not cause any side effects just make sure to use pesticide free tomatoes.
