Mango: Benefits for Skin

Mangoes contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that nourish your body and skin. For instance, just one cup of the fruit delivers 67% of your daily vitamin C and over 8% of your daily copper, folate, and vitamins A, B6, and E, says Healthline.

Better yet, all these nutrients fight acne, sun damage, and aging.

Vitamin A tackles acne and wrinkles, while vitamin E locks in moisture and softens skin. Plus, vitamin C brightens skin, boosts collagen, and slows aging to make you glow again.

In addition, mango contains mangiferin, an antioxidant that protects your cells and fights aging.

So whether you snack on mango slices or slather on a mango face mask, you’re sure to reap the rewards.

And what better reason to stock up on that mango body butter?

So now that you know about mangoes’ health and beauty benefits, try these DIY mango beauty recipes below. Make the face mask for dry or oily skin, depending on your skin type.

Another tip? Make the face mask first, and then whip up the mango smoothie and lip scrub while the mask gets to work.

However, perform a patch test 24 hours before using these masks if you have sensitive skin, and discontinue if irritation develops.

Although side effects are rare when using mango on your skin, it’s best to consult your doctor if you have sensitive skin or a medical condition. So, use all mango beauty products as instructed to reduce these risks.

However, there is one important risk you should know: mango skins contain urushiol, a chemical found in poison oak and ivy that can cause a skin rash. Mango can even worsen skin rashes caused by poison oak, sumac, or ivy, so avoid all mango products until the rash clears, says Healthline.
