Athiya’s Go-To Skin Ingredient
Apart from a homemade mask, Athiya shared in the same interview that she extensively uses tomatoes to get rid of any skin issues. Tomatoes are powerful astringents, and when the juice is diluted with water, tomatoes help with the shrinking of the open pores. It is believed that tomatoes also combat acne, loosens blackheads, and controls sebum.
How To Use Tomatoes For Skin
Tomatoes As Face Scrub
Cut a tomato in half, extract the juice, and add some sugar granules to it. Add 1 tbsp of honey and mix all the ingredients well. Now take the scrub on your fingers and gently massage it on your face. Make sure you are not using too much pressure on your face and working in a circular motion. The sugar granules and tomato juice in the scrub help to get rid of the blackheads, whereas honey hydrates your skin.
Take 2 tbsp of yogurt, 1 tomato pulp, 1tsp of turmeric powder, and 1 tsp of honey. Mix all the ingredients well and apply the paste on your face for 15-20 minutes. The tomato pulp present in the mask will help in shrinking the pores, remove tanning and make your skin soft and supple. Moreover, the turmeric present in the mask will work to help in taking care of minor inflammations to make your skin smooth and flawless. Tomatoes also work as a great bleaching agent that helps with combating blemishes.
