We’re in.

Munch On The Red Stuff…

Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C – which helps to keep the skin firm and taut by aiding collagen production (aka the magic skin treatment for brighter and taut skin). They also contain lycopene – the red pigment which not onlygives them their bright red colour, but also stimulates skin circulation. So if drinks are on the agenda tonight, make it a bloody mary!
