Homemade Peach facial

Walking into my home right now you would be greeted with the sweet smell of freshly (and not so freshly) picked peaches … mmmm.

I am obsessed with peaches.

To me these juicy and vibrant lovelies represent my childhood- picking and eating fresh peaches from my grandma’s peach trees and eating her delicious peach pie and cobbler. However, it also represents the bitter sweet transition of summer to fall.  During this time- I go into extreme panic as the last of the local peaches begin to dwindle. I can’t help but buy boxes and boxes of peaches from the local orchard…. It’s great!  Except for one problem.  After filling my freezer and doing all the great How Does She suggestions of what to do with peaches here,  here , and here, - I still am finding myself lost in mounds and mounds of peaches!

Peaches are packed with vitamins and I have heard they are great for  hydrating the skin.

Then, it came to me…

Peach facial anyone?

It’s extremely easy!

All you need is:

One ripe peach

1 teaspoon of honey

1 egg yolk (for dry skin) or 1 egg white (for oily skin)

First thing is first- grab a friend! Find someone to do the facial with- so much fun to do it together! My little helper is going to show us how it is done.

Let me tell you that my face was left feeling so smooth, tight,  and soft. I just couldn’t believe it!

The  benefits of these ingredients on your skin:

-Rich in Vitamin A, E, and D

-Tightens the skin

-Hydrates the skin

-Balances the oil and bacteria that cause acne

-Promotes skin’s ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin

And there you have it.

I just think I may try more at home facial masks with the left over produce…hmmmm what about squash, zucchini, or tomato? Not as appealing as peaches…but I just may give it a whirl!

What garden produce are you left with? Try it out and let me know how it goes!
