Mango is called the king of all fruits because of its numerous health benefits. The fruit has now become a “go-to” ingredient in skincare products because it works as a wonder for your skin too. From reducing acne and premature aging to brightening skin to reducing dark spots, it is an amazing source of vitamin-A, vitamin-C and minerals like copper, potassium, and magnesium that play an important part in producing collagen to firm the skin. While it is always a good idea to have a mango or two daily, during the season, you can also use it externally. Try these simple hacks to brighten up your skin.
Vitamin C – Protects against UV rays, reduce inflammation caused by acne and lighten the skin.
Vitamin A – Diminishes fine lines by stimulating collagen production.
Beta-carotene – Boosts immunity and protects the skin.
Vitamin E – Hydrates the skin.
Vitamin K – Reduces stretch marks and spider veins
Vitamin B6 – Reduces sebum on the skin.
