Usually thought of as a key ingredient in pasta sauce or as topping on a sandwich, not only do tomatoes taste great but they also keep the skin healthy. Tomatoes are great for the skin, as they have cooling and astringent properties. Rich in vitamins A, C, and K, tomatoes can help eliminate acne and brighten dull skin. It is naturally acidic, so it helps balance the skin and get rid of excessive oil. There are also many antioxidants in tomatoes.
One of the tomato’s most important elements is lycopene, a powerful antioxidant which is able to rehabilitate sun damaged skin and protect it from further uv damage. According to numerous peer-reviewed medical journals, lycopene contained in tomatoes and tomato products can help protect against the risk of skin cancer, which has become the disease of our age. As a bonus, when you directly apply lotions and creams with a high lycopene content, you can experience slight tanning and a glowing skin color, without the damaging effects of the sun!
