Let the Games Begin......

Talented Jenn over at Leftover Queen  has hosted the second edition of the Foodie Joust. This months ingredients for the Joust were peaches, honey and eggs as chosen by last months winner Jennifer at http://www.andtheeggs.blogspot.com/ . There were so many wonderful recipes to choose from, but, what first came to my mind is not really a recipe at all but a beauty secret. Not necessarily my beauty secret, but, a home remedy for a facial. Even though this recipe is not food related and is not "droolworthy" I decided to enter anyway. It kind of fits my quirky ways. It is a real recipe...I promise....I found it years ago in a magazine and use it periodically. It meets the criteria by using honey, peaches and eggs!!

Grind 1 T almonds into a fine meal in a blender or food processor. Mix almonds together with 1 T honey and 1 eggs white. Apply to face and let set for about 15 minutes. Gently wash off with a damp cloth...or not....

Cut a slice from a peach and rub it all over your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes or more and then rinse it off.
I would have photos , and it would be imaginative, but that would NOT be pretty...so NOT. So close your eyes and envision yourself with the drying mixture on your lovely skin with 2 round peach slices on your eyes. That is how I will envision you! Wink...wink....

This brings a whole new meaning to a "peaches and cream complexion".
