Our beauty routine is no stranger to superfoods (looking at you, pineapple, watermelon and avocado). But there is one ingredient we’ve overlooked until now: tomatoes. And as of right now, they’re officially making their way into our skin-care routine, one antioxidant-packed product at a time. Why? Because lycopene, the enzyme responsible for a tomato’s red color, helps to fight free radical damage and hydrate skin on contact. And these eight products are the next best things to putting tomato slices on our face.
This Surprising Superfood Is Responsible for Glowy Skin and Hair
Briogeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Shea Curl Defining Conditioner
Defined, bouncy curls are possible in the summer heat—just use this conditioner to nourish them and banish frizz. Rice amino acids lock out humidity, while tomato fruit ferment comes in to seal the hair shaft and ensure coils dry in a consistent pattern.
Ilike Organic Skin Care Tomato A-c-e Booster Mask
After spending all day in the sun, you’re going to need something to calm inflamed skin—and this mask is just the thing. It sinks deep down into pores to fade fine lines and remedy free radical damage from environmental stressors (like UV rays). Just apply it after cleansing, let it sit for 10-15 minutes and rinse.
