BEAUTY BENEFITS OF PEACH:
Peaches are high in both vitamin A and vitamin C which makes a gorgeous combination for your skin! These two antioxidants work to ensure healthy regeneration of skin cells to keep it soft and bright while greatly reducing damage done by free radicals. The presence of phenols in peaches protects your hair from the summer sun, protecting against damage from UV rays while selenium encourages hair growth for lush strong strands. They also help to cleanse your kidneys from toxins due to their diuretic nature.
Eat peaches with their skin on, you can run them under cold water before eating to get rid of their slightly fuzzy texture. Warm them in a pan by slicing, removing the seed and sprinkling with cinnamon.
When buying peaches, check to see how they feel. They shouldn’t be overly hard or mushy, when squeezed gently their skin should give slightly to the pressure. Avoid ones with wrinkled skin and look for ones with a sweet aroma and buy organic when possible.
