Ingredient Spotlight | Mango

Our favorite fruit for the summer is definitely a nice, juicy mango! This sweet and juicy fruit is perfect for a snack on the go or a nice, cool smoothie. We all see it as a great summertime treat, but did you also know that this little fruit has numerous health benefits? Yup, it’s true! Mangoes are awesome for your skin, hair, and health as a whole! Let us fill you in on what mangoes can do for you.

Mangoes contain alpha hydroxy acids that naturally work to break bonds between dead cells revealing more supple skin and healthy cells.

Mangoes are loaded with antioxidants and Vitamin C, which can help to treat your skin if you’re suffering with unwanted blemishes. These properties create an anti-aging affect on your skin and leave you with healthy, soft skin. Vitamin A, also found in mangoes, is crucial in keeping your skin’s quality clean and clear. Since it’s so great with clearing up your skin, mangoes are great in gentle skin cleansers (and who wouldn’t want to smell like mango?).  Mangoes work with all sorts of skin types as well! Since it’s a natural ingredient, it is well suited for sensitive skin, but treats normal skin just as nicely!

FUN FACT:

- There are over 400 varieties of mangoes.

Mangoes do more than treat your skin! They actually keep your body overall a lot healthier. They definitely strengthen your immune system due to several varieties of carotenoids. Carotenoids act as a source of antioxidants in your body and have very strong cancer fighting properties. The high levels of folic acid in mangoes are great for fertility health and reduce the risk of miscarriage.  It’s pretty incredible that one little fruit can have such huge health benefits as well!

Well, there you have it! Aside from being a tasty treat, mangoes have some pretty major health and skin benefits! They provide a sweet scent and give your skin the nutrients it needs to maintain a clear complexion. We are huge fans of mango here and use any excuse we can to use them more often. So next time you cut up a mango for your morning smoothie, think about getting a little creative and using them on your body! We promise it’ll be worth it!

 

 Until next time,

 

xo.
