As we reach the end of summer you may find that your skin is looking a little bit dull and dingy! The combination of hot, humid weather & rich sunscreens can cause your skin to become congested and prone to breakouts. My simple Skin Brightening Tomato Treatment will help gently smooth, soothe and brighten your skin. Tomatoes do make a wonderful treatment for acne prone skin as they are not only rich in Vitamin A & C but also have a gentle astringent action and can really help reduce the build of of sebum, dirt and other ickyness that clog up pores. Add just a dash of Lemon to help brighten and tighten skin and you have the perfect treatment to banish blemishes and boost radiance.
Skin Brightening Tomato Treatment
2 medium sized Tomatoes
oval cotton pads
Slice the tomatoes in half and scoop out all the middle (pulp, seeds and all!) directly into a bowl. Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon. Then with a dinky little hand blender blitz for a few seconds until completely liquidized.
Pop about 6 of your cotton pads into the bowl and let them soak up the liquid. Then take the cotton pads and starting at the base of your neck, gently press the pads into your freshly cleansed skin. Work upwards and ensure that all your skin has been drenched with this soothing mixture. Leave on your skin for up to 10 minutes, then rinse away with tepid water.
