Benefits of Sugar and Tomatoes in a Facial Scrub
The combination of sugar and tomato make for an extremely effective facial scrub for exfoliating the face.

Sugar acts as the main scrub part, removing the dead skin cells and regenerating fresh new ones.

Tomatoes are extremely rich in the potent antioxidant Lycopene which is mostly found in tomatoes or tomato-based products such as tomato ketchup and tomato puree.

The tomato has tiny particles, and when applied to the face, the particles are easily absorbed through the skin.

When combined with the sugar, the tomato pulp is crushed, more Lycopene is released, and the new fresh skin will absorb antioxidantsfaster, eliminating free radicals that harm the skin.

This facial scrub will also help diminish fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead, eyes, and mouth which start appearing in our 30’s or earlier in some cases.

The first signs of aging are generally something many of us dread but fear not the skin will have a more youthful appearance and can easily be maintained at home.

The most important step after the facial scrub is moisturising.

This will rehydrate the skin and bring nourishment to the newly regenerated cells.

Moisture is locked into these cells which will give the skin a more youthful appearance.


Sugar and Tomato Face Scrub

Homemade Face Scrub

Cleanse the skin beforehand and remove all makeup. Pop on a headband to keep the face clear of hair.

Ingredients:

1 medium or large tomato (green stalk intact)
1-3 tbsp sugar (granulated)
Tools:

Sharp knife
Chopping board
Side plate
Facial brush (optional)
Instructions:

Dampen the skin.
Cut the top of the tomato off. You will need the top as this will be the scrubber pad so do not cut the top too thinly.
Put the sugar on the side plate and spread it a little with the back of the spoon.
Get your tomato top and dip it in the sugar, twist it around in the sugar to get even coating.
Start on the forehead and gently scrub in a small circular motion. Move down to around the outer eye area (avoiding eyelids and under the eye area) and move over the face, nose, mouth, chin and neck. A facial brush may be used to go over the face as an extra benefit.
Relax for 10 minutes and eat the other part of the tomato.
Rinse off with tepid water.
Pat the skin dry and apply your moisturiser.
By incorporating this facial scrub into your weekly skin care, you will not only start to feel the benefits to your skin, but you will see the results too! A tomato and some sugar. It couldn’t be easier, so give it a try!
