Tomato For Acne Scars
Do you eat tomato? I guess you do. I like tomato. It is really a very tasty and nutrient rich vegetable.
In this post i am not going to discuss about tomato as a food. Rather i would like to inform you about the usefulness of tomato as a remedy for acne scars.
Tomato contains Vitamin A,B,C,E,K and anti-oxidant materials. For these materials inside of tomato it is an effective remedy for healing acne scars. If you don’t want to take costlier treatments like laser treatments and if you don’t want to use any available products for treating acne scars then tomato can be an easily available & low cost solution for treating acne scarring.
Tomatoes has the ability to slow down the excess secretion of sebum oil. Excess sebum oil is one of the many reason of acne.
The vitamins contained in tomatoes are also good for rejuvenating damaged tissues. The anti-oxidant materials refreshes and renews scarred and damaged skin.
How to apply tomato for acne scars?
Applying tomatoes on skin for treating acne scars is really very easy. Just cut a fresh tomato into halved pieces and rub those pieces gently and slowly on acne scar affected area on your skin. During rubbing tomato juice should come out from the pieces and should be on your skin.
After applying tomatoes, leave the juice on acne scar affected area of skin for 30-60 minutes. During this time skin will absorb the ingredients of tomato juice in it. After this time, wash your skin with water (preferably mild hot water.)
Creating mask with tomatoes & other materials
You can apply tomato on your skin in another way. That is, creating a mask by mixing tomato with some other ingredients (i.e: cucumber). This type of mask is more useful if you are treating facial acne scars.
How frequently should you apply this remedy?
You should apply tomato regularly until you see significant improvement on your skin. Time to see noticeable results will most likely vary from person to person.
Generally for mild acne scars you should see improvements within a week or two. Moderate scarring will definitely take more time.
One thing should be kept in your mind that, if your acne scarring level is severe then there is no reason for you to treat scarring with tomatoes.
In this case you must consult with a renowned dermatologist who will decide what to do.
