But, have you ever thought about people who have acne covered face? Really, it a real curse for these people. Luckily, there are many who don’t have to face problems after puberty, but there are others who take care of it their whole lives.
There are countless products that promise to counteract this unsightly and somewhat painful skin condition. But these are often very expensive and some contain harsh chemicals. So you’ll be glad to hear that there’s a great natural remedy that you can grow in your own garden: fresh tomatoes!

Tomatoes have high concentrations of vitamins A, C, E and B6, which open up your pores and let your skin take in a lot of important nutrients.
The tartness of the tomatoes helps to counterbalance the PH value of the skin and diminishes the likelihood of an acne eruption.
In case you do not have much time as you are busy with many things, the quick application is the best choice. To do that you need to take a fresh tomato and cut it from the middle. After that, rub both halves softly over the acne prone areas. Massage the juice with light hands and wash the area with lukewarm water afterward. This technique is great if you see that an eruption coming on and need to take care of it rapidly.
If you have more time, you can make yourself an effective tomato mask. To make this, take a fresh tomato and cut an “X” in the upper part. Now run some warm water over the tomato for about a minute before you slice it. The next step is to remove the seeds and puree the pulp until you have an evenly textured paste. You put the whole thing on your face and leave the mask on for one hour. If you use this mask regularly, you’ll soon notice considerable improvement.
