Tomato is such a versatile fruit. You can sauté, bake, or eat it raw.

Old people say that eating raw tomatoes is good for the skin. Is it true?
Here are 5 health benefits of tomatoes you might not know.
1: Keeps skin healthy and glowy
Regular consumption of tomatoes will help make your skin look great. Tomatoes have lycopene, an antioxidant that helps protect skin against sun damage. It also makes skin less sensitive to ultraviolet light damage, one of the main causes of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
Also, tomatoes can be used to minimize large pores, heal acne and rashes or treat minor burns. Rubbing the pulp of tomatoes on dull skin is a simple way to revive a healthy glow.
