Tomato and Avocado Mask

Tomato and avocado make a winning combination for the skin. Fresh tomato cleanses pores. Simply rubbing tomato on your face is a way to rub away dirt, oil and makeup. In a face mask, this fruit cleanses, while also nourishing, supplying the skin with vitamins A, C and E, which not only nourish and promote new skin, but they also act as antioxidants to protect cells from free radical damage. More antioxidants for the skin are even more important over the years as the body's cells produce more and more free radicals. Putting tomato on your skin is a way to dose the skin with alpha-hydroxy acids, those natural acids found in many skin care products to loosen up dead skin cells and prevent clogged pores.

Not only is tomato packed with antioxidants and other nourishing ingredients, but avocado is as well. Avocado is a great source of vitamin C to boost collagen production as well as vitamin B5 to help moisturize the skin. This is a great combination for preventing the signs of skin aging. Rich in essential fatty acids, avocado is also naturally softening.

To make this antioxidant face mask that is great for acne as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles, add one-half of a ripe avocado to the blender with one-half of a fresh red tomato. Blend for thirty seconds. Wash the face with warm water to open pores and then smear on the tomato and avocado mask. Leave on your face for twenty minutes. Add the rest of your avocado and tomato to a green salad for a great skin healthy meal to enjoy after your homemade facial. Rinse well with tepid water and pat dry. Follow this mask with your moisturizer.

Try the tomato and avocado face mask once a week. It's a great facial to use in the summer if you have fresh tomatoes growing in the garden. The rich dose of antioxidants and hydrating ingredients for the skin are great for balancing with the drying, damaging effects of the sun.
