No need for added ingredients here- the tomato itself contains all you need to help remove blemishes, take care of acne problems and exfoliate the skin.

  1. MashaAllah I'm loving the skincare recipes! This one is fantastic! I have a lot of trouble with my skin (thanks to PCOS) and a good, gentle, natural scrub does wonders! I'm going to try this inshaAllah! Is it ok to cut it small and mash it with a fork and use it that way? Using the blender is not an easy task with a very noise sensitive child around ;)
  2. Aasalam Alaikum wa Rahmatullah Jazak Allah Khair for the tip! I don't know if I can resist not eating the tomato, that's my fav!!!! LOL
  3. Salaams! A relative in Amman told me that she knew a lady with the most beautiful skin. Her secret was that she'd splash a little of whatever fruit or vegetable she was using on her face! The thought of seeing it makes me laugh, but it seems to work!
  4. @Emma- of course, yes a fork or potato masher, whatever you can do to break down the tomato, enough to be able to put it on your face.
  5. @Sue- I have a friend from the Middle East whose mother also does the same thing. I think it's true about it helping the skin look fresh and stay young. Perhaps it does slow down the aging proces- I've seen living proof!
