Peaches and Cream Face Mask

Happy DIY Wednesday!

Can you believe we are almost halfway through 2021?! Holy cow! I hope the first half of 2021 is treating you better than the first half of 2020 did!

For this week’s DIY, I want to keep it remarkably simple and summer themed. I am sure you have heard my mom and I preach that it is important to treat your skin from the inside (what you eat/drink) and on the outside (skincare)! Funny enough, some ingredients are great for BOTH.

Peaches are delicious and great for your skin. They are an awesome source of Vitamin C and have macronutrients that help remove dark circles, blemishes, and wrinkles. Peaches tighten the skin’s pores and help skin GLOW.

That being said, this week DIY recipe is a Peaches and Cream Glow Facemask that will nourish and moisturize your skin (and tastes amazing!)

Ingredients for Peaches and Cream Glow Mask:

Best for: Normal, dull, or dry skin

  • ½ very ripe small peach, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream or full-fat coconut milk

How to Make It:

  • Use a mortar and pestle or a small bowl and fork, mash the peach and combine with the cream until smooth. Do not store, always make fresh.

How to Use It:

  • Using your fingers (or a brush), spread mixture over your face, neck and chest (if desired). Lie down (I recommend with a headband), relax for 30 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.

This summery, sweet and smooth mask is one you can taste test! Try a spoonful before putting it on your skin, even try adding a dab of honey (our FAVORITE ingredient) and drink it for lunch! That’s beauty from the inside AND out.

Have a great week and enjoy this tasty treat and facemask!  

 

Love Alicia!!

This is a new one for me: using vodka in my skin care! As with anything new, I proceeded with caution - especially because alcohol can be over-drying to skin if used too frequently. I used it on my t-zone (especially after a particularly humid day) - and it worked wonders! I'd advise using at night as opposed to morning (or both).

Considering the amount of different beauty products on the market and the absolute mountain of promises they make, it’s no surprise that most of us don't understand which products do what, or how to best take care of our skin.  Toner is probably one of the least well understood skin care products, and therefore probably one of the least properly used skin care products. Read on for a quick explanation toners and an effective DIY one to make home.
