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 ABSOLUTELY NOT about me...but the pressures of life got to me last week. Work, family, future outlook - you name it! I allowed myself to be a blubbering Debbie Downer.

But - that was last week!

Since then, I took some time to recharge and be with people (Alicia included) who are positive and uplifting (and honestly, play time with a two-year-old can cure almost anything). So, I'm back.

Alicia saw my "meltdown", acted as a great sounding board, then wrote this in response - she figured if I needed a boost and some decompression - you might, too!
