How to use tomatoes for sunburn/ skin tan
You can either apply sliced tomato directly on your face or make a puree then ice cubed it and use one cube daily on clean face. I like to use tomato puree on my face, because it is simple to store , makes less waste and tomato puree ice cubes does two jobs in one – soothes the skin and tones the skin at the same time.
How to make –
Wash the tomatoes and cut them in medium sizes. Blend it smooth in a blender adding just two to three spoons of plain water. Once it’s blended well, pour it carefully in a ice cube tray and leave it to freeze. You can use one cube in the morning and one before going to bed.
I even made cubes out of potato juice and I usually use it on alternative days. You can either grate the potato and apply the juice directly on your face using a cotton or make cubes of the juice.
Apart from these potato and tomato cubes , I tried this really moisturizing face mask that helped to remove skin tan leaving my skin super soft and healthy.
