Beauty insiders Janey Hayward and Susie Prichard-Casey have just released a new book Pretty as a Peach, featuring over 75 natural beauty recipes for radiant skin, hair and nails. From foot balms to body scrubs, cleansers to hair conditions, lip tints to blushers, it contains simple homemade, eco-friendly recipes so you can make them all at home.
We’re lucky to be able to share one of the recipes from the book, so you can make your own peach, rose water and lemon face mask – enjoy:
Peach, rose water and lemon face mask for oily, blemished skin
Rich in folates, peaches replenish and boost cellular renewal, as their natural vitamin E content helps restore skin and can assist in reducing blemishes, such as acne scarring.
You will need:
½ ripe peach • ½ lemon • 1 teaspoon rose water
Purée the peach in a food processor to a fine paste. Place in a glass bowl and add the lemon juice and rose water. Mix well.
Apply with fingertips to the face and neck, avoiding the eye area and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse gently in warm water and pat dry. Skin will feel fresh and thoroughly clean.
