Last week I made a peach pie– and this week I am advising you to take those peaches and rub them all over your face. Yes, you read that correctly. To be honest, it seems like you can take just about any fruit, mix it with honey, smear it all over your face and result in radiant skin. Because fruit is so high in vitamins and natural anti-inflammatories it’s a match made in heaven! Whats better- is that you get to skip out on all of those mysterious ingredients that you can not pronounce that are in every bottle of product that you buy searching for these results- not to mention the price tag.
There are a few variations of this facial to target whatever your skin dilemma may be.
Mash half of a ripe, peeled and pitted peach with a tablespoon of oatmeal, a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, and a teaspoon of ground almonds. Rub gently onto face, let sit for 15-20 minutes and rinse off with water.
Mash half of a ripe, peeled and pitted peach and combine with one eggwhite in a food processor. Apply evenly over skin and let sit 15-20 minutes. Rinse with water.
Mash half of a ripe, peeled and pitted peach, combine with one tablespoon of raw, organic honey (or plain yogurt if your skin is sensitive!) and one tablespoon of oatmeal. Gently apply to skin, let sit for 15-20 minutes, and then rinse with water. Follow with moisturizer of your choice- mine is organic coconut oil!
Do you know of another way to use peaches in an unconventional way? We would love to hear it!
