Those of you who love sunbathing, must have in mind that the sun’s ultraviolet light is the main factor of skin aging. Tomatoes are the perfect natural ally against aging! Tomatoes owe their lively red colour to lycopene, a natural tinting substance, present in mature tomatoes whether they matured in a natural way or not.
Lycopene can absorb UV radiation and helps keeping the skin youthful. A recipe to try out: Dip some tomatoes in warm water with some olive oil until they soften. Then peel and cut into pieces. Mix them with fresh basil and serve on bread. Delightful enjoyment!
