I love discovering and sharing DIY beauty tips, especially all-natural solutions that you can easily make at home.
I bought around five peaches yesterday and I ate them all—except for one. Why you ask? I had to save one to give my face a special peachy treat, of course! I'm all up for applying God-given fruits and natural stuff on my skin—after all, if you wouldn't eat it, why would you put it on your skin? Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies and it absorbs everything we put on it. Keeping this in mind, let's find out just how wonderful peaches are for our skin, and then, we can jump into this simple, fuss-free and refreshing peach face mask.
I'm calling this the Glow Peach face mask because once you wash it off, your skin will literally feel bright, light, and glowing. You have to give it a try!

What You Need
- 1/2 a mashed/ pureed peach
- 1 tablespoon yogurt
1. Collect the ingredients you need to make this peach face mask.
Collect the ingredients you need to make this peach face mask. Get 1/2 a peach and mash it up with a fork. Add plain unsweetened yogurt. Make sure your yogurt is at room temperature.
2. Mash your peach and yogurt together.
Mash your peach and yogurt together in a small bowl.
3. Make sure it's not too drippy and not too thick.
Your final mixture should look like this! Not too drippy and not too thick. Don't add any more yogurt because this will make the face mask drippy.
4. Apply the face mask gently onto your face.
Using a clean face mask applicator brush, or clean finger tips, apply the face mask gently onto your face. Feel free to use up the whole mask by bringing the face mask down to your neck and cleavage area.
5. Leave your face mask on for 10-15 minutes.
Leave your face mask on for 10-15 minutes and wash off with warm water. Pat your face dry with a clean towel. You'll be amazed at how fresh and glowing your face looks! If you tried out this mask, please leave a comment below telling me how it worked out for you!
1. Use a ripe or over-ripe peach, which will be easier to mash up and allow for smoother application.
2. Allow this mask to sit on your face for at least 10 minutes. But if you have time, I suggest to leave it on for longer. The maximum amount of time to leave a face mask on is until it dries up completely.
3. Got left-over face mask left? Just stow it in the fridge and use it within 3 - 5 days.

Hi Kate! Thanks so much for your wonderful comment. I'm still a novice myself when it comes to getting good photos. I don't think I'm in a position to do a hub on photography techniques because I'm still getting the hang of it. Most of my photos are close-ups so I don't really have to worry much about composition - I just try to make sure there's enough light and that the photos are reasonably clear. Thanks for supporting me by commenting, I appreciate it! :o)

Hi HealthMunsta! Great hub. I have to say your pictures are AMAZING. Your captions are perfect too. Would you ever consider doing a hub on your picture taking techniques for your hubs? I am still trying to learn the best way to take 'pinterest' pictures. -Kate
