Most skincare companies offer some sort of tool that cleanses your face. For example, the Neautrogena wave sonic and the Clarisonic, both clean your pores while making wrinkles and lines less noticeable. If you like those, then you will enjoy this all natural recipe because it works in the same way, but instead you get to use a tomato! I got this recipe from watching the Dr. Oz Show. I’m a fan of the show, he usually features good tips on weight loss and anti aging secrets.

Tomato Sugar Face Scrub

  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar

Cut tomato in half and dip it in the sugar. Next, rub your face with the tomato in a circular motion. Leave it on for ten minutes and then rinse.

Why it works: Tomatoes have lycopene in them, that’s what gives it its deep red color. Lycopene is an antioxidant that helps protects your skin from dangerous UV sun rays and it also prevents wrinkles by maintaining your skin’s elasticity. Sugar is also great for your skin because it’s a natural humectant. Humectants help retain moisture, so the sugar helps pull moisture into your skin and keep it there.
