Beauty Tip for Radiant, Glowing Skin

Posted by: dweam on: January 27, 2010

Mum always told us to eat our veggies.

But what she really meant was for us to eat our fruits.

The humble little tomato (yes, it is a fruit!) is actually a powerful skin booster.

The skin, our largest organ of our 5 senses, might probably be one of the hardest things to maintain. The constant exposure to various physical elements including the sun can leave the skin looking dull over time.

But because tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C and the antioxidant Lycopene, they help to fight off free-radicals which damage skin cells and leave your skin looking aged.

Eating one tomato a day can help to keep the doctor away, and can help your skin look more radiant.

Here are some easy ways you can incorporate tomato in your daily routine:
- Juice 2 large tomatoes in the morning and drink up with your favourite toast.
- For breakfast, make yourself a cheese and tomato sandwich.
- Pack one large tomato in your lunch box.
- Cherry tomatoes are a great alternative to regular tomatoes. They are small and easy to eat. Pop them a handful of them in your mouth in the morning before heading out to work or school!

If you have a little more time on your hands, the best way to eat your tomatoes is to cook them lightly in oil. You can cook them with pasta or as part of a colourful salad. The cooking fully releases the Lycopene in cell walls giving you the full benefits of tomatoes.

Looks like tomato juice is on the menu for breakfast tomorrow!

Has anyone of you tried this recipe previously? Did it work for you?

nice! i dont really fancy eating tomatoes (especially ‘cooked’ ones), fresh ones are still okay, but maybe make tomatoes juice? just gulp down everything :D

I’ve tried eatin them, smearing a fresh one on my face.. and nothing. but then again it was only once. eating is a consistent thing.

i love tomatoes! i usually go with cherry tomatoes :)

I prefer cherry tomatoes, but costlier lah…

But I never like to eat tomatoes. =(
