Acne is an inflammatory skin disease that is difficult to treat and requires time to completely suppress the symptoms. Until then, however, there is a risk of leaving serious scars on the skin.
In acne, the sebaceous glands produce more sebum, which clogs the pores and helps retain dead cells in them. This creates conditions for inflammation, additional infections and purulent irritations.
Tomatoes come to the rescue!
They are packed with antioxidants that suppress inflammation naturally. They are rich in natural acids and many vitamins that nourish the skin and suppress the growth of bacteria.
