DAILY DOSE | SKIN
By Huda Heidi Kattan
I get so many questions about Pores and believe me, being a makeup artist, I can tell you they are the worst! Personally, large pores are not a huge problem for me because I am crazy about keeping them clean! But if I slack, boy do they start to show, especially since I love wearing makeup so much! Of course washing your makeup off every day before you sleep helps tremendously as well as the occasional facial, but using tomato juice for skin has seriously become one of my favorite remedies for almost everything! I love using tomato to keep skin super tight and pores looking clean and invisible!
I posted a video not too long ago about using tomato juice directly on your face, which helps with everything from tighter pores to scars, pigmentation as well dull skin, but you can also use fresh tomato puree and add a few alterations to make it perfect for your skin type. Keep in mind, if your skin is sensitive, it could react, so test a small area first. Most people might react with a few breakouts if their skin is dry. If you have particularly dry skin, adding the fresh yogurt to the mix to help keep it soft and smooth.
Gentle Tomato Mask For Tighter Pores
1/2 large/medium tomato, seeded
1 tablespoon fresh yogurt
In a blender, puree the tomato to a nice consistency. Mix in the yogurt and smooth the mix all over your skin. Let sit for 5-10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Follow with your favorite moisturizer.
