Day 15 to more beautiful skin!

peaches
There are so many lotions and beauty potions out there. But there is NOTHING like doing an at home treatment from the kitchen. Not only are you what you eat. YOU also are what you put on your face!

I love to whip up my own beauty potions…those of you who read my blog know I love to eat, cook,makeup and entertain. So, here is a fresh beauty concoction to try and enjoy! My friends who are of Asian descent recommend this and their skin looks amazing.

Peaches & Cream Face Mask

1/2 ripe peach
1 tsp.honey
1 to 2 tablespoons of crushed almonds

High in beautiful nutrients…the peach can NATURALLY exfoliate and smooth skin gently. They also have properties that lighten sun spots.Peel the peach and mash. Grind or crush the almonds in a coffee grinder.I have one just for beauty recipes. Add honey and make a nice mask out of this.I apply this to face and neck.
Leave on fifteen minutes.Rinse well.Look in the mirror and glance at the new texture and feel of your skin.
Moisturizer to follow.
You will be tempted to eat this mask…but enjoy it ON your face~

Warm and oh so cozy …Spiced Wine

I love to entertain, kiss and cook! This week and or weekend why not whip up this recipe for a warm wine brew?

1 Liter of red wine

A little bit under a  1/2 cup of sugar

4 cloves

2 cinnamon sticks

1 teaspoon of organic honey

Warm all of the above on the stove top. Bring to a bit of a boil, strain  and pour in mugs.

I first tasted this in my travels to Italy…in cool or cold weather or when I entertain this is one of my warm and cozy recipes. Another version can be to add a dash of nutmeg and some lemon or orange peel. Either recipe it is delicious.

It’s a wonderful life! SIP!
