See how a tomato can cure pimples or acne in just 10 seconds.
Pimples or acne are one of the most common skin problems, especially among teenagers or those who are in the early adolescent stage. This issue does not only affect the skin but most of the time, it may cause behavioral discrepancies like low self-esteem. According to Wikipedia, “Acne vulgaris (or simply acne) is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. Acne is characterized by areas of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and greasy skin, and may result in scarring.” It is also mentioned that this skin condition can result in depression or even suicide, in severe situations. No wonder why there a lot of products available over-the-counter promise healing pimples, however, they are commonly made of chemicals that trigger further irritation and dryness.
We have found a better way to treat pimples. Just visit your kitchen, get one tomato, and say goodbye to pimples. This berry is filled with Vitamin B6, C, K, E, and A, which are essential in pimple treatment. Aside from that, it does not contain any harmful chemicals that may cause further harm to your skin. It may instead neutralize the acid level on your skin.
There are three ways on how to utilize your tomato:
- Fresh tomato rub- For minor pimple conditions, you may slice a tomato and simply rub it on your face. Squeeze the juice and massage it on your face, making sure it is evenly dispersed on every affected area. Leave it on for 10 seconds and rinse. You may do this process regularly until you see great results.
- Tomato masks- Slice tomatoes and remove the seeds. Put them in a blender, add warm water and blend it until it becomes a paste. Rub it on your skin which has pimples. Rinse it with lukewarm water after a few minutes. You may also add cucumber if you have more budget.
Tomato facial wash- Remove the seeds of sliced tomatoes. Extract the juice using a fruit juicer. Apply the juice that you have collected on the affected areas and leave it on for 5 minutes. Rinse it with lukewarm water afterward. Repeat this process until you see better results.
