Tomato & sugar as natural exfoliant

Tomato scrub for your face face

Today is a new beauty Sunday and this time I have a simple and quick tip how you can exfoliate your face with a tomato scrub.

You´ll need: a ripe organic tomato, a knife, a plate and fine granulated sugar.

1) Cut your tomato on a cutting board but slice just the top off. You can use the stem as a grip.
2) Take one tablespoon of sugar and put it on a clean plate (it acts as a natural exfoliant).
3) Take the top of your tomato and dip it in the sugar. Hold it like a cleansing pad and apply it on your face by circular motions. When you have evenly covered your face you are finished.
4) Wait 10 minutes before you rinse off the product.

Interesting facts:
Tomatoes contain a source of lycopene which acts like a sunscreen and therefore it protects the tomatoes against UV radiation. Lycopene is also an antioxidant which combats free radicals. These free radicals are known that they damage living cells. Antioxidants protect and slow down the effect of aging skin.

Therefore…tomatoes are good for you 😉 .
