Yummy cherry tomatoes taste great picked & eaten straight from the garden.  There are hundreds of uses, with which, adding tomatoes create amazing flavor to salads, pasta sauces, or bruschetta; yet how often do we think of applying a cherry tomato to our face?

It has been noted that tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, A, and vitamin K.  And when this delicious tomato is applied to the skin can help act as a bacteria fighting agent, which can greatly reduce acne breakouts overnight.
During teenage years, many of us tend to develop acne.  Some of us have breakouts more severe than others. (severe acne? See treatment recommendation below).  

Whether you want to get rid of a single pimple or just an occasional breakout try the following steps for quick acne cure overnight.

Step 1

Place a hand full or more of cherry tomatoes, into a freezer bag, and store in the freezer.

Step 2

When you have an acne breakout, or a pimple that you need to get rid of fast, be sure to cleanse your skin with a gentle fragrance free face wash, and splash with Luke warm water. Dab or blot the skin with a clean towel.

Step 3

Slice open a frozen cherry tomato, and apply it directly onto the pimple; hold it in place. The ice cold helps to reduce the swelling which can often occur when the pimple is new.
Once you notice the tomato beginning to defrost, continue to rub over your face in circular motions over the infected areas for approximately 10 to 15 seconds or until the tomato smash of juice, seeds, and pulp are visible on your skin.

Step 4

Remove any seeds, tomato skin, or pulp, with a cotton ball, and use a q-tip to gently rub the juice evenly over the pimple, and allow it to dry on your face overnight.
Note:  If you find that it’s too itchy, remove tomato from the clear skin only.
Once dry, you may apply a night cream, or moisturizer (avoiding the infected area).  Make sure you use creams that don’t contain fragrance.

NOTE: This home remedy is for the occasional acne breakout.  If you suffer from moderate to severe acne breakouts, try using the two part system. Which can be found over counter or purchase now at amazon.  Natures Cure

My vegetable garden had an abundance of tomato crop up this year, and so instead of letting all those tomatoes go to waste, they were plopped into a freezer bag.  They will be used for pasta dishes throughout the winter months. As it turned out, it was discovered the frozen tomato was useful in curing an acne breakout overnight.
