Not only are Mangos in season right now and at their absolute sweetest, they are also packed with so many beneficial nutrients to protect our skin during the hot summer season.

Benefits of Mango: 1 serving of Mango = ¾ cup. 1 Serving provides:

  • 50% of your daily Vitamin C needs
    • Vitamin C helps prevent sun damage, reduce wrinkles and dark spots, and optimize collagen formation, which strengthens the skin and provides elasticity.
  • 8% of your daily Vitamin A needs
    • Vitamin A reduces sun damage, improves smoothness, and alleviates hyperpigmentation for healthier skin.
  • 8% of your daily Vitamin E needs
    • Vitamin E is anti-inflammatory and reduces reddening of the skin and swelling and prevents cell damage, which protects the skin.
  • 15% of your daily Folate needs
    • Folate has an array of functions that help regulate the skin which protects the body from environmental stresses.
  • 15% of your daily Copper needs
    • Copper is anti-inflammatory and reduces redness caused by inflammation. It also promotes collagen and elastin production while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

All these beautiful benefits from Mangos truly bring out the glowing skin from within during the summer season.
