Make mango your beauty fix

Replenish and nourish your skin with the goodness of man-goes, which can smoothen your skin, de-tan, treat black-heads and cleanse it too
The king of fruits has arrived. Mango is not just an extreme-ly palatable fruit, it is quite beneficial for your skin too. This season, make sure your skin too soaks in some of those ben-efits.
Good to eat
Eating mangoes helps you get a clear complexion. It also makes your skin soft and shiny. Its peel contains numerous beneficial ingredients that help exfoliate and smoothen skin. It also helps in rapid cell formation, which keeps the skin firm. It’s a great source of Vitamin C that keeps your skin glowing.
In beauty treaments
Beauty expert Dr Amrapali Patil says “Mango pulp can work wonders on dry skin and is also effective in clearing clogged pores. The fruit is high in beta-carotene, an important nutri-ent which gets converted into Vitamin A when used on the skin. It is often used as a contemporary treatment for acne, and is directly applied to the skin.” The antioxidants present in this fruit also delay the onset of skin ageing and pigmenta-tion. They also protect your skin against harmful free radi-cals, which can cause cancer.
For aromatherapy
The alluring scent of honeyed mango oil fits well in the world of aromatherapy. “The oil is used for healing in aromather-apy. It helps to soothe your mind and relax your body,” says aromatherapist Girija Pillai.
