Peaches are more than a sweet scent. Originating in China, peach leaves were used by women as an anti-aging agent- part of why peaches are still the Chinese symbol of immortality.
The rejuvenating and healing properties of the fruit itself are plenty. Peach’s antioxidants have anti-inflammatory effects on the body and are rich in phenolic and carotenoid compounds, both of which are touted to anti-tumor and anti-cancer.
Here’s how you can add this bright fruit to your beauty regimen.
