Can Tomatoes Really Help with Acne Scar Removal?

Red, yummy tomatoes! Tomatoes, being rich in lycopene, are well known to be good for a man’s prostate gland. But do they also help with acne scar removal? Well, that is exactly what I would talk about in this article.

While the exact cause of acne vulgaris is not known yet, it is generally believed to be caused by hormonal imbalance; some believe that the presence of an excessive amount of bacteria, dead skin and oil in a person’s body can trigger acne. Generally, it is mostly young women and teenagers who fall victims to acne. If you have a very oily skin, you are in fact more vulnerable to acne than anyone else!

For the more fortunate ones, acne only lasts for a short while and is usually of mild nature; for others, acne can be so severe as to cause skin inflammation which in turn scars the skin. These scars are often deep and can take a long time to heal. There are a lot of remedies people use for getting rid of acne scars. You can go for a microdermabrasion treatment, chemical peels, or some other expensive technique designed for acne scar removal. Others would purchase acne scar removal creams, but it is often a hit-and-miss with such creams – some work well, and others don’t; the trick is to know which one would work best on your body!

So, if you want to eliminate guesswork and learn about a remedy that works for almost everyone (because it is 100% natural), this article is for you. As you might have guessed by now, the remedy is nothing else except those good old tomatoes!

So how come this ubiquitous, red vegetable is so potent against something as obstinate as acne scars? Well, the fact remains that tomatoes are a rich source of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is known to be helpful in nourishing the skin and helping it rejuvenate and grow rapidly, which is why a lot of skin care products contain Vitamin A.

The final question remains: how do you use tomatoes? Well if you thought that merely eating these tomatoes would do the trick, I am sorry to disappoint you: it is NOT that easy! The treatment is actually ‘external’. There are two ways you can use tomatoes for acne scar removal.

The hard way: The hard way is to use a facemask made up of tomatoes and cucumber (or avocados) – blended together; it is recommended that you keep this facemask on your face for at least 15-20 minutes, after which you can wash your face with water.

The easy way: The easier way to apply tomatoes is by cutting tomatoes into small pieces, beating them into a pulp, and then applying it on your face. Just like the previous treatment, you would want to keep the tomatoes on your face for at least 15-20 minutes, before washing your face!

So, as you can see, you would no longer have to pay a visit to a dermatologist for getting rid of acne scars. The tomatoes are here to your rescue!
