It reduces dark spots, blemishes, rejuvenates, revives the skin and brings the glow back to the skin. Vitamin A is a vital nutrient for maintaining a healthy skin and complexion as well as the integrity of mucous membranes.

Helps heal any blemishes and provides a clear and glowing complexion. Fibers help in good bowel movement and this in turn helps increase metabolic rate.
Some more benefits of Mangoes and how you can put mango as a part of beauty routine:
– Mango skin is a great de-tanning agent. You can rub your face and hands with the skin of a ripe or raw mango and apply some milk cream on it. Wash off with cold water after 10 to 15 minutes. Doing this at least twice or thrice a week will reduce tanning drastically. Regular consumption of mangoes provides you with a fair and smooth skin.
– Mango skin is also beneficial in reducing dark spots. For this purpose, you can make a powder from the sun dried mango skin and mix it with a teaspoon of yoghurt. Using this as face pack will reduce dark spots, blemishes and add a golden glow to your complexion.
– This might appear a bit surprising but mangoes can be used to remove blackheads. For this purpose, prepare a scrub by mixing a teaspoon of mango pulp, half a teaspoon of milk or milk powder and honey. Rub it all over your face in circular motion. This will help in removing dead skin and blackheads, thus adding a glow to your face.
– Raw mango juice is an excellent astringent that can remove acne. You can boil a slice of a baby mango or raw mango in water and use this water on your face as an acne remover.
– To cleanse your skin, take a teaspoon of wheat flour and add mango pulp to it. This acts as a perfect cleanser by reaching your pores and cleaning them from deep within.
