Tomatoes are very rich in Vitamins A, C, and K, all of which you can find in a slew of facial products today. These vitamins contribute to healthy skin, and the acidity works wonders to reduce clogged pores and acne. Lycopene also works against free radicals such as pollutants that can damage our healthy skin cells.

1 tomato halved
½ teaspoon fine granulated sugar

This scrub can be done once or twice a week, which is plenty for a good physical exfoliation. Using half a tomato, sprinkle the fine granulated sugar on exposed part of the tomato. With slow circular motions, gently rub the tomato onto your cheeks, chin, forehead and nose area. Just one or two passes on each area, and remember light pressure! After a few minutes rinse the scrub off with warm water and follow with a moisturizer.
