The apple of love and beauty
Try to eat tomatoes more often, and not only fresh, but also in the form of sauces, soups, fillings. In the XVIII century, these bright fruits in the shape of a heart were called the "apple of love", they attributed the properties of an aphrodisiac. Modern scientists have found that tomatoes help protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation, which causes premature aging and even skin cancer. Tomatoes contain a special component - the antioxidant lycopene. It is he who gives the skin additional protection against the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays. Moreover, the concentration of this antioxidant increases during the heat treatment of tomatoes.
It was proved, for example, that after 3 months of daily use of tomato paste, the level of skin protection against external influences increases by 33%, and the aging process slows down.
