Works with some patience
I've been using tomato on my face to reduce the hyper pigmentation I've been suffering from. My spots are extremely dark and high in numbers, they are mostly concentrated on my cheeks but i also have some on my chest, chin, temples, forehead, back and on my inner arm area. Every night before I go to bed, I wash my face with a gentle Cetaphil wash for sensitive skin, then proceed to cutting a 1/4 " thick slice of refrigerated fresh tomato. The fact that it is refrigerated makes a big difference in my opinion, as it helps close my pores which have been opened after washing with lukewarm water. I massage the slice onto my face and make sure to get the juice all over my trouble areas. Not only do I see small improvements every morning, but the rubbing motion also acts as a natural exfoliator. In the morning, I gently wash my face with the same Cetaphil wash and lotion and repeat the process at night. After following this regimen for close to 6 months, I can honestly say my hyper pigmentation has greatly reduced and my skin is a lot smoother, I also reckon I get way less acne but it might be due to my water drinking habits. I read online that tomatoes contained an ingredient called lycopene which is great for the skin. You have nothing to lose, tomatoes are inexpensive fruits that are anti-aging, fight acne, and lighten the skin. Try it out, but make sure to stick to it.
