Peaches and Cream Complexion

By Refadoc, Posted on : Thursday, 08 January 2015 - 9:02 am IST

Most of us are keen to look at our face and get a peaches and cream complexion. However, when it comes to the cost of the skincare products in the market, we often shirk back and think twice. What if I told you that we can make our very own cleansers, toners and nourishers at home with the help of fresh fruits, vegetables as well as other foodstuffs? You must be surprised, right?

Fresh fruits and vegetables often have a nourishing, revitalizing as well as astringent properties which tend to inhibit the growth of the bacteria. The vegetable ingredients often tend to fight against inflammation and contain large amounts of Vitamin A. So, here are a few quick solutions that you can whip up in no time at your home:

  • Honey and Cucumber Cleansing Milk : Peel, deseed, puree and sieve around ¼ of a small cucumber. Stir 2 tbs honey and 2tbs of the juice. In this, add around 1 tbs full cream milk. Apply to your face and the neck, and leave it off for 20 minutes. Then, wash it down with water.
  • Banana Anti Aging Mask : Mash up a small banana and stir it in 2 tbs fresh cream, 1 tbs honey and 1 tbs potato flour. Apply this paste to the face, leave on for 30 minutes and then rinse it off.
  • Egg White and Lemon Juice Toning Mask: Beat up the white of the egg until it is stiff and then fold it in the juice of ½ a lemon. Apply this all over your face and neck. Leave it for 20 minutes and then rinse it off.
