Properties of Tomato for Burns

At Caña Nature you have 100% natural grated tomato at your disposal, packed in 180 gram tubs so you can enjoy its delicious flavour whenever you want.

Grated tomato is normally eaten with toast, although you can also use it in many recipes, either as a base for pizza, as a garnish for other foods or as another ingredient in your favourite dish.

But the nutrients and properties of tomatoes can offer you much more than just a tasty snack. They also help your skin and body to be better protected or even recover faster from problems such as burns.

How to use tomato for burns

The reason that tomatoes can offer great help when suffering from burns is due to the presence of lycopene. It is a powerful antioxidant that, among other things, can help us in the reconstruction of the skin and to alleviate the discomfort suffered by burns.

One way to use tomatoes for burns is as follows:

  • Wash the tomatoes in a container with water that also contains vinegar.
  • Once clean, cut the tomato into very thin slices.
  • Place these slices directly on the skin where you suffer from burns.
  • Keep the tomato slices on the burns for 15 minutes and then remove them.
  • Finally, wash the affected area with plenty of water.

There is an alternative to using tomato slices and that is to apply the pulp directly. First you will have to remove it from the tomato and use a utensil to apply it well to the area where the burns are.

As with the tomato slices, you have to wait about 15 minutes, then remove it and finish by washing the area well.

The effect of the tomato is moisturising and healing, so in a short time you will notice a slight relief on the area where the burns are, as well as progressively slowing down the effect on the affected skin.

In addition, tomato also prevents the appearance of blisters, so you will prevent your skin from suffering this effect.

However, there are also two important things to bear in mind when using tomatoes on burns:

  1. It is only recommended in the case of mild burns. If they are more serious, you should see a specialist, who will apply an appropriate treatment.
  2. Some people are allergic to tomatoes. Do not apply it directly to your skin if you are not completely sure that it will not cause any adverse reaction.

Other benefits of tomatoes

Tomatoes are very beneficial for our body, much more than just soothing the skin in case of burns.

These are some of the benefits you can get if you complete your diet with the presence of 100% natural grated tomato like the one we offer you from Caña Nature:

  • It has antioxidant vitamins such as A, C and E, which prevent the symptoms of ageing and protect both the skin and our hair.
  • In addition, it also includes vitamin K, whose benefits include an important aid for coagulation and the improvement of blood circulation.
  • Lycopene, the carotenoid that we have identified as the main element that helps with burns, is also considered an anticarcinogenic element, which can especially help to protect the kidney, stomach, pancreas and prostate.
  • Tomatoes also help us because of their high fibre content. This helps the intestinal transit and prevents the onset of related diseases.
  • It strengthens the immune system, thus helping to prevent illnesses and improve bone health.
  • It is also an excellent natural diuretic.
