Benefits of Mango for Skin: I despise the summer season with all my heart, but the only reason I love it is that it is the season of mangoes in my country – which is my absolute favourite!
I cannot be the only person in the world who loves to devour on juicy, sweet mangoes during summer. This “king of fruits” not just tastes delicious, but it also bears tons of benefits for our skin
So while devouring on some delicious mangoes, I thought of covering an article about the benefits of mangoes for skin that may come as a surprise to you! Along with that, I am also sharing 4 easy ways to pamper your skin with mangoes using DIYs.
Benefits of Mango for Skin
1. Mango Nourishes Skin
Mango is a potent source of Vitamin A, which helps to hydrate, nourish, and soothe dry skin. When applied topically, mango locks in moisture into your skin while also improving skin elasticity.
2. Mango gives you brightened skin
Mango is also rich in Vitamin C content, which is known for its skin-lightening properties. It works well in reducing pigmentation, dark spots, and sun tanning. When applied directly on the skin, mango pulp can help to brighten and even out your skin tone, making your skin appear youthful and radiant.
3. The properties of mango help fight acne on the skin
Mango is rich in antioxidants and antibacterial properties that can aid in fighting acne breakouts and reducing skin inflammation. When used on the face, mango can help to unclog pores and prevent the growth of acne-causing bacteria.
4. Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles:
Mango is rich in Vitamin E, which is known for its anti-aging properties. Mango and its flesh’s antioxidant properties are also beneficial for reducing premature signs of aging. You can rub the flesh of a mango directly on your skin to see the effects.
DIY with Mangoes for skin
1. DIY Mango Pulp face mask for de-tanned skin
Get rid of suntan quickly by making this de-tan face pack (which can also be used on other parts of the body) with mango pulp! Take out the pulp of a ripened mango and mix it with cream, the quantity should be as per your requirements. You can keep the 1:1 ratio for both of these ingredients. Keep your DIY mango and cream De-Tan pack on the affected areas for at least 15-20 minutes and rinse it off with cold water. Use this pack three times a week for a month if you have severe tanning, it will definitely show you desired results!
2. DIY Face wash with Mango Pulp
Cleansers and face washes are a part of everyone’s daily skincare routine. You can make your own 100% natural and quick DIY facial cleanser with mango pulp at home. Mix 1 tablespoon of rice flour with 1 tablespoon of mango pulp and gently massage this mixture on your face. Leave it on for a couple of minutes if you want to, then rinse it using circular motions on your face. This facial cleanser will deeply cleanse your pores and leave your skin feeling fresh!
3. DIY Face Pack With Mango Peel Powder
We usually throw away the mango peels, thinking that they are of no use. But, if we can use orange peels to make their powder, then why cannot we do the same thing with mango peels? Simply, just keep aside the mango peels on a paper once you are done devouring on the delicious mangoes and let them bask under the sun for a few days.
Once they have dried enough, grind them in a mixer to make their powder. If you want to make DIY Mango Peel Powder Scrub, keep the powder a little coarse. For the face pack, you have to keep the consistency fine. Store the powder in an airtight container and keep it away from moist areas. Whenever you want to use the mango Peel powder to pamper your skin, mix it with milk, curd, or cream to make a thick paste. This pack will also help to de-tan your skin effectively!
4. DIY Mango Juice Skin Toner
Who knew that the yummilicious juice of mango can be used as a toner for skin? I am definitely not talking about the packaged mango juice like Frooti or Maaza! ? You have to brew fresh juice of mango for this DIY. You need to add two other ingredients to this skin toner otherwise, it will feel extremely sticky. Those two ingredients are Aloe Vera Gel and Rose Water. Take 4-5 tablespoons of Aloe Vera Gel in a blender and add 2 tablespoons of mango juice as well as the same quantity of Rose Water in it. Blend it once so that the ingredients can mix well together. You may use a Vitamin E Oil capsule after this step to preserve the DIY toner for a long period! Use this toner with a cotton pad every night before you sleep. Your skin will LOVE this natural, nourishing toner!
