Peaches and Cream Facial

Packed full of AHA's (alpha hydroxy acids), loaded with Vitamins A and C,  your skin will thrive with
the edition of this Peaches and Cream facial to your home spa recipes.

Rich in potassium and flavonoids (antioxidants) peaches can help retain skins elasticity,
tighten and brighten the skin, hydrate and help in cell renewal, as well as ease redness and aid in the
signs of early aging.   Antioxidants found naturally in fruit help to protect the skin from
UV rays that damage it with free radicals.

Our skin is able to absorb vitamins and nutrients that are applied topically in the form of  facial treatments
like this naturally made fresh fruit facial. Benefiting the general appearance of the skin,  this facial will leave you feeling fresh as a peach. No pun intended.

Now for the Cream part.....  combining peaches and cream is not a new beauty secret by any means.
Generations of women knew that the combination would leave their faces dewy fresh, thus the term "peaches
and cream complexion".

The addition of cream, yogurt, or sour cream, buttermilk,etc brings the soothing, healthy qualities of
lactic acid to your facial. Lactic acid, (another form of AHA's)  naturally found in milk gently cleanses as it loosens and lifts out dead skin cells that clogs the pores.  Dry skin is often dead skin cells that have built up on the surface of the skin, leaving it looking dull. Lactic acid in milk will aid in the removal of such, allowing
the skin to be able to absorb the moisture and nutrients it needs.   Milk has also been used for generations
as a skin lightener, or brightener, noticeably leaving the countenance with healthy vibrant glow.

RECIPE:     natural goodness, naturally exquisite!  

Choice of:  cream, yogurt, sour cream, buttermilk, kefir, milk.

Simply mash peaches as smooth as possible, add milk product a spoon at a time to desired consistency.   I prefer sour cream or yogurt as it adheres to the face better!   This mixture will be a bit runny with chunks in it.

Apply with fingertips or facial brush, allow to dry and rinse off. First with warm water, then a splash
of cool.

If acne or pimples are a concern, add a bit of lemon juice to your facial.

You will be astounded at how soft and smooth and fresh your face feels after this natural facial. I was.


Enjoy..............  Anna
