Peaches: Kitchen Cupboard Beauty Tips

Mouthwatering peaches have been a centuries-old favorite of any wise beauty who wanted a youthfully dewy complexion. Today we know that peaches are rich sources of skin-renewing alpha-hydroxy fruit acids which help to slough off dead cells, and vitamins A and C to nourish new ones, all of which help skin to look more vital. Peach juice unclogs pores, banishes blemishes, lightens age spots, and reduces wrinkles, giving skin a fresher and more vital appearance.

We have collected the sweetest crop of peachy ideas ever, and every single one tastes and smells divine. Fabulous formulas for attaining the classic “peaches and cream” complexion, right here:

Two Easy Peach Tricks

1. Just pick a fresh, juicy peach, cut a slice from it, and rub the slice on your face. Leave the juice on for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

2. After you’ve peeled peaches for a pie, save those skins to save your own! Before bed, just massage your face gently with the inside of the peach peelings for a few minutes and then go to sleep. The astringent sag-busting action of the peach juice will give you firmer, fresher skin in the morning.

Peach Moisturizer

This works as beautifully on hands and fingernails as it does on your face or anywhere on your body.

2 tablespoons almond oil
1/2 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons peach juice

Mix ingredients well and apply all over.

Peaches and Cream Toner

Delicate Skin Mask

This is a gentle mask that is particularly good for minimizing the appearance of little broken capillaries or spider veins.

1/2 ripe peach, peeled and mashed
2 tablespoons plain yogurt

Mix ingredients and apply to skin. Lie down and rest with mixture on for 20 minutes, then rinse and pat dry.

Peach Firming Mask

This works beautifully to tighten sagging skin and minimize enlarged pores. Best for oily skin types.

1 ripe peach, pitted and peeled
1 egg white

Using a blender, whiz peach and egg white until smooth. Apply mixture gently to face and allow to stay on for 30 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

Nourishing, Hydrating, Soothing Mask

This can’t be beat for babying your skin and making it feel sweetly taken care of. Good for all skin types.

1 ripe peach, pitted and peeled
1 tablespoon honey
oatmeal

Mash peach with honey and add enough oatmeal to form a thick paste. Apply to skin and allow to remain for 10-15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Sounds delightful if the peaches are organic and not sprayed with toxic pesticides. Since many peaches are sprayed and are on the list of the dirty dozen (and more) fruits laden with pesticides I would pick the organic ones for the delightful tips mentioned here!
