Tomato slices can replace some expensive creams!
The fact that many women are now rubbing tomato slices over their faces may seem strange at first glance, but it’s really smart! Cucumbers have a similar effect, but of course a different nutritional profile. Do you want to save money on expensive creams? Then you should definitely try this. Convince yourself.
Tomatoes are high in water, so they also hydrate your body quickly.
The red juicy ball, formerly known as love apple, not only contains a lot of water (95%), but also a good mix of valuable vitamins, A, B1, B2, B3, C, E and minerals, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium and potassium. And the scoop? Did you know that tomatoes are actually fruits? We only use it mainly as a vegetable. Incidentally, ripe tomatoes contain a substance called lycopene. It has been scientifically proven that this substance has an antioxidant effect and should strengthen the immune system.
Tip: be sure to cut off all the green parts from the actually red tomatoes and the stalk. These should not be consumed as they contain a substance (tomatidine) that is moderately toxic and can cause vomiting and nausea. This does not apply to naturally green tomato varieties!
Effects on the skin
The high moisture content of the tomato has a positive and hydrating effect on the skin. The valuable minerals of the tomato nourish your skin in a natural way. The effect is just like that of an expensive moisturizing face cream – only then without chemicals and additives and fillers. The acidity of the tomato slices can help restore the skin’s PH balance. Tomatoes also contain salicylic acid. An enzyme that is also used in anti-aging creams. The vitamins A, B and C, as well as the sodium and magnesium in the tomatoes also have a supporting effect. A natural effective care for the skin, which is underestimated by many people!
Tomato slices application
Cut a ripe (!) and organic (!) tomato into thin slices. Clean your face with lukewarm water. Rub the tomato slices all over your face and neck in a circular motion. If pieces come loose – no problem. Massage everything into the skin. You will immediately feel an effect! Really refreshing and invigorating.##
Are you more after a mask? For the cleansing mask, all you have to do is mix a whole chopped tomato with an avocado (pitted and skinless) in a blender and then apply this mixture to your face. Leave on for 20 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. Your skin will appear livelier, fresher and fuller.
