Peaches and Cream Toner Formula

Peaches and Cream Toner Formula

Nothing sounds more delicious than peaches and cream, especially when used to describe our skin. Mmmm–how heavenly to have that dewy soft youthful look! Well, it turns out that peaches and cream can help us get there: cream is an alpha-hydroxy acid and peaches contain skin-softening enzymes.

This is so simple to make and you’ll love the luscious scent and great results. Find out how:


2 peaches, peeled and mashed
1/2 teaspoon almond or olive oil
1 tablespoon heavy cream

1. Combine the ingredients in a bowl, mashing with a spoon, then stirring well to blend.

2. Dab the mixture on your face and allow to stay on for ten minutes or so, then rinse with warm water.

That's a lot of peaches for one treatment. Is this storable (with the cream, particularly)?
