5 amazing benefits of mango for skin

Mango Fruit Hd Mango Mango

Mango is called the king of all fruits because of its numerous health benefits. The fruit has now become a “go-to” ingredient in skincare products because it works as a wonder for your skin too. From reducing acne and premature ageing to brightening skin to reducing dark spots, it is an amazing source of vitamin-A, vitamin-C and minerals like copper, potassium, and magnesium that play an important part in producing collagen to firm the skin. While it is always a good idea to have a mango or two daily, during the season, you can also use it externally.

Reduce dark spot, skin damaged and even-out skin tone

The naturally occurring antioxidants in mango have the potential to reduce signs of sun damage by reducing oxidation of your skin cells. 

Moreover, when you administer vitamin C through mangoes, it reduces inflammation. Often, acne on your skin causes inflammation, and regular consumption of mangoes works as a great acne repellant.

Of course, mango skin offers amazing benefits, too. 

Mango skin extract can reduce dark spots and patchy skin tone. Use the powder in a mixture to cleanse your face regularly.

To make powdered mango skin first you must dry out the skin, you can achieve this by peeling the skin with a potato peeler then drying the pieces out in the oven. The oven method can take up to seven hours at a low heat. If you live in a very warm country, you can dry the peeled mango skin outside for a few days. Once skins are dried, the peels can be crushed into powder with a mortar and pestle. 

Support collagen formation

Mango is rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C is needed for the production of collagen. 

 Collagen is the most common protein in your skin and gives your skin its structure.

People who don’t get enough vitamin C develop a condition known as scurvy. Many of the symptoms of scurvy, such as poor wound healing and scaly skin, are caused by reduced collagen production.

Reduces signs of ageing

 Vitamin E and C act together to protect your skin from environmental damage.

These two vitamins are stored in your skin cells. When your skin is exposed to pollution or sunlight, the amount of these vitamins is reduced. If vitamins E and C aren’t replenished, your skin becomes more susceptible to damage that can lead to premature ageing.

Vitamin C also supports your body’s production of collagen. Reduced collagen production leads to wrinkles and other signs of ageing.

Mangoes can contain between 1,000 to 6,000 international units of vitamin A. Foods high in vitamin A have photoprotective effects, meaning they help reduce sun damage.

Reduces Skin Cancer

Here’s one of the key benefits of eating mango skin that you should know.

Mangoes contain a natural chemical called polyphenol (mangiferin) that plants can synthesise. The highest concentration of this polyphenol is present in mangoes’ peels, seeds, and kernels. Other parts of the trees containing the chemical include the bark, stalks, and leaves of the mango tree.

As per studies, mangiferin can reduce some types of cancer. This includes cervical cancer, colon cancer, skin cancer, and breast cancer.


After using mango butter, the pulp from a mango, or a mango-containing moisturiser, you’ll notice your skin is clean and healthy with a distinct glow. Mango skin benefits include the AHA’s and antioxidants in the fruit which can:

  • Clear pores by removing dirt and oil.
  • Fight against the damage of free radicals.
  • Protect against premature ageing.
  • Boost cellular transformation to make collagen.
