Skincare Benefits of Tomato

Tomato has high levels of Lycopene, an antioxidant that protects the skin from harmful Ultra Violet rays, fights early signs of skin ageing like wrinkles and fine lines, and even protects it against skin cancer. Tomato being rich in Vitamin C and A makes it a natural astringent with cooling properties. Little wonder, it makes for a natural skin cleanser. And owing to its bleaching properties it helps lighten the skin tone and even reduce open pores.
