Mindful Echo admits that facial products containing tomatoes are probably great...But you know what's even better? The real thing!
The other day I was perusing the organic section of my friendly neighbourhood drug store when I spotted this:
I can't vouch for the product itself, but I can say that it seems to have the right idea; that is to say: taking advantage of the beneficial properties of nature for skin care.
I looked around and noticed a few other products with the same agenda. In particular, it seemed that tomatoes are the hot vegetable of the moment. Tomatoes are très chic, non?
If you are using any tomato-based products at the moment, leave a comment and let us know how they're working out for you. In the meantime, I've been inspired to rediscover a fantastic go-to homemade facial recipe that allows me to take advantage of the abundance of produce I have on hand.
Are you ready for the easiest (and possibly most effective) homemade facial recipe ever? Here it is:
That's it. That's all you need. No kidding.
Next time you're making a salad or tossing together some bruschetta, just put aside the top, or any, slice of your tomato. On clean, make-up free skin swipe the pulpy piece of tomato across your skin. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes until it dries. Then, just rinse with water.
Tomatoes have a natural astringent that will leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed. Plus, it's great knowing exactly what ingredients you're putting on your skin.
