The king of fruit has earned its royalty status because – let’s be real – it’s delicious, but it gets a lot more bragging rights for its beauty benefits. That’s right, we’re saying you can put it on your face, too.
The active fruit enzymes in mango clarify and moisturise, remove dead skin cells and dullness, while beta carotene revives your skin, restoring its youthfulness. All of this makes it a star ingredient for moisturizers, exfoliants, peels and balms.
