Tomato is an excellent food good for skin. Eating tomatoes provides natural sun protection from UV rays as well as promoting youthful skin. Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that offers many benefits for skin, including protecting skin from UV rays, delaying skin aging and protection from skin cancer.

Applying tomatoes on the skin is also as beneficial. The humble tomato has cooling properties that soothe sunburn and also contains astringent properties that tighten large pores. What's more, tomatoes have natural acids in them which help regulate oily skin. Tomatoes also clear acne, deep cleanse pores, fight premature aging and lighten skin. Here are three homemade tomato face mask recipes for healthy skin.

1. Skin-Lightening Tomato Lemon Face Mask

Use the two-power combo of lemon and tomato to reap impeccably bright and fresh skin. This is for those who want to lighten their skin naturally.

      Very effective methods. I have used all 3 methods, works like magic. Now i simply stick to rubbing tomatoes on my face for 10mins, leave it on for hours, then wash off. I do this morning and at night. My skin texture is youthful and clean. You don't need any make-up anymore.
