The next time you need a facial, pull a can of tomato paste out of your pantry and smear some on your face. No, I'm not kidding. Apparently acid in tomatoes help dissolve the bonds between the dead skin cells, making them easier to slough off.
I happened to have some left over tomato paste in my refrigerator, so I decided to give this mask a whirl. I felt pretty silly lying on my bed for five minutes with tomato all over my face, not to mention that I smelled like a pizza. But I was amazed with how soft my skin felt after I rinsed it off. It really worked, and was only a fraction of the cost this spa treatment.
So my Thrifty Green Thursday tip this week is stock up on some 60-cent cans of tomato paste to keep your skin feeling soft and youthful. For more tips, click here.
