Acne is a real curse for teenagers. Most people notice their pimples slowly disappear after puberty, but there are people who have them for many years, and the ugly zits even appear in adulthood.
There are a lot of products on the market formulated to eliminate the red pimples. Some of them are very expensive and contain a lot of chemicals, which you absolutely do not want to apply to the skin. Fortunately, there is a natural remedy to help in the fight against acne. It is a fresh tomato!
Of course, we are talking about a vegetable which is pesticide-free and grown in a natural way. Tomatoes which are available in stores during the winter are not recommended for applications involving the face!
It has been proven that a freshly cut tomato fights pimples and even reduces acne scars. The secret lies in a number of very valuable ingredients. Ripe vegetables contain a lot of vitamins, such as A, C, E, K and B12, which improve the appearance of the skin. In addition, they are a source of lycopene – a substance used in many anti-acne products. The acidity of tomatoes dries out pimples and changes the pH level of the skin.
