Mango | 3 Powerful Facials For Healthy Skin
Worried about your skin this summer? Well, worry no more. I’ve got the solution for you. It’s fruit! Not just any fruit. More specifically it’s mango. Did you know that mangoes were good for more than just salsa? They contain some pretty powerful anti-aging and cancer-fighting abilities. Polyphenolics and gallotannins to be exact.
“They are strong antioxidants, and gallotannin found to reduce cell death from oxidative stress by its radical-scavenging ability (Falsig et al., 2004).” (1)
“Polyphenols are abundant micronutrients in our diet, and evidence for their role in the prevention of degenerative diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases is emerging.”(2)
Mangoes For Healthy Skin
The combination of the two, plus the incorporation of anti-inflammatory vitamin C makes this fruit a great skin protector. It will effectively protect against and help prevent cancer. That’s why I highly recommend Mangoes for the skin. And one of the best ways to achieve healthy skin is with a facial.
In my opinion, it’s the next best thing to drinking or eating it. Which I also recommend. Especially in smoothies or salads. Below are three great home remedies for your skins overall health. They work wonders for me when I need a quick skin perk-me-up.
A note of caution. Do not use if you are allergic to mangoes. The facials are intended to improve skin health. Please consult a doctor if you believe you may have cancer. Enjoy!
