Why Tomatoes for Blemish Prone Skin03.24.2021
Red, ripe, delicious … and surprisingly awesome for your skin. Though often prepared and eaten like a vegetable, the tomato is actually a fruit. When consumed, tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant Lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a great source of Vitamin C, Potassium, Folate, and Vitamin K. But, this ingredient is good for more than wedge salads and BLT sandwiches. It’s actually one of nature’s most powerful tools in maintaining gorgeous, blemish-free skin.
Tomatoes in Skincare
A 2011 study found that the combination of tomato paste and olive oil protected against sun damage, and boosted the production of pro-collagen, a molecule that gives the skin its structure and keeps it firm and youthful. It’s believed that the Lycopene in tomatoes is the key to its skin care magic. Tomatoes are also amazing acne fighters. It’s true!
Yes To Tomatoes Blemish-Fighting Products
Each of our skin care lines harness the power of fruits and vegetables, and Our Yes To Tomatoes products are specifically formulated for oily/combination and breakout-prone skin using natural ingredients.
The Yes To Tomatoes line, launched in 2008, leverages antioxidant-rich Tomato Extract, in addition to other natural ingredients like Watermelon Extract and powerful sebum-absorbers that balance skin, eliminate shine, detox pores, and reduce acne. Some of our Yes To Tomatoes formulas, like the Daily Detoxifying Cleanser with Charcoal, combine the power of Salicylic Acid and Tomato Extract to help unclog pores and draw out dirt and impurities for naturally clearer skin.
Acne-prone people may be afraid of moisturizers, thinking they will make oily skin worse, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Depriving the skin of moisture only causes the skin to produce more oil. Our Yes To Tomatoes line has several moisturizers and masks like the Charcoal Detoxifying Overnight Moisturizer and Daily Balancing Moisturizer that are specifically formulated to give oily, acne prone skin a boost of hydration.
