If you ever thought tomatoes and olive oil can only satisfy your taste buds or enrich your salad, think again, because your skin will thank you too.

In research done in the subject, it has been found that tomatoes can make us prettier, and here’s how you do it:

1. Bye-bye-freckles treatment

Rub a slice of tomato on your freckles daily till you see their color lighten or until you get cuter freckles and decide to leave it them like that.

2. Free cleanser (yeah!!!)

Crush a ripe tomato, add some sugar to the juice and use it to wash your face.

You will notice your skin become lighter, more delicate, and smooth (and maybe even sweeter…)

It is also great as an exfoliator if you leave it on your skin for 15 minutes, and as a healer for sunburned skin… but let’s not get to that stage, shall we?

Olive oil is not a sauce!

Do you suffer from eczema, psoriasis, inflamed or itchy skin? Well suffer no more!

Just rub some olive oil on the problem area and you will witness a miracle! Experts say that olive oil’s antioxidants can reduce the chance of inflammation and help moisturize the skin too.

Isn’t this amazing? I’ve now discovered what I can do with my leftover salad…

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m running to the kitchen now for a spa treatment!
