Health and Beauty Benefits of Tomatoes
- Tomatoes are chock-full of health benefits, offering around 40% of your daily recommended vitamin C. They also give your digestive system a little TLC, especially if constipation’s got you down.
- As for the smokers among us, while tomatoes won’t help you quit, they do offer some damage control, reducing the harm smoking does to your body.
- Need to slim down? A study from China claims tomato juice can help you lose weight and trim that waistline.
- Beauty-wise, tomatoes are no slouch either. Slap some tomato paste on that mug of yours to combat oiliness, or rub a tomato half on your face to bid adieu to open pores and blackheads.
- And if you’re all about that summer glow without the sunburn, tomatoes can help. They’re also a rockstar exfoliator when mixed with lemon and sugar, keeping your skin looking fresh and youthful.
