- Reduce the appearance of dark spots
To test out mango’s ability to change the appearance of dark spots, you can try drying out mango skin in the sun. Once dried, crush it into a powder and mix it with a teaspoon of natural yoghurt. This mango skin mixture can be used as an exfoliating face mask to reduce dark spots.
- Remove blackheads
To prepare mango as a scrub, scoop out a teaspoon of the mango’s pulp. Add this to honey and few drops of milk. Rub this scrub in a circular motion over your face to exfoliate. This will remove dead skin and other dirt clogging your pores that create the blackheads.
- Clear blemishes and acne
For acne, add raw mango to water and boil it. Then use this water directly on the acne once it has cooled. To tackle blemishes, make a cleanser by adding mango pulp and juice to wheat flour. This will clean deep within your pores, leaving your skin smooth and blemish free.
- Mango is great for hair too
Due to the fatty acids, vitamins and minerals found in mango that are great for hair health, you can mix mango juice and olive oil to create an easy hair mask. Apply the mixture to wet hair and leave in for 20 minutes.
