Deepika Padukone just posted a picture of a bowl of fruit and it is evident that mango season has arrived. The Pathaan star has always said that she likes to drink lots of water and eat loads of fruits to maintain her natural beauty from within and I’m taking her word for it.
Since she’s drooling over mangoes (as indicated in her post’s caption), I’m already curious about how this delicious fruit is going to benefit her skin and hair. Turns out she’s going to have the perfect summer glow, because mangoes are loaded with vitamins and they can be applied topically too.
Read on to see the many beauty benefits of eating mangoes and some nifty ways to apply it to your skin.
It Doubles As A Beauty Supplement
A single serving of mangoes makes up for almost 67% of recommended daily vitamin C intake. Vitamin C is great for skin health and essential for bodily functions.
It also has other essential nutrients such as vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin E, copper, and folate which are usually in beauty supplements. So eating a bowl full of mangoes like Deepika is a delicious alternative.
Aside from adding mangoes to my summer diet, I’m going to load up on more of these nutrients with the Purna Gummies Multivitamin Mango Gummies.
Mangoes can help keep the skin hydrated from the inside out and also when used topically. The juicy flesh of mangoes has up to 83% water content and it helps deliver delicious hydration to the skin.
Applying the peels of mangoes on the face while you consume the flesh is also a great way to attain a fruit facial at home and reap all the benefits of the fruit.
After indulging in my DIY mango fruit facial, I wash my skin with another fruit product which is the St. Botanica Goji Berry Face Wash.
Can Boost Hair Growth
Vitamin E and C found in mangoes helps boost hair growth as it helps nourish the scalp. Even folate in mangoes can help promote hair growth and also prevent premature greying.
If you want to feed your hair some mangoes directly, whip up this easy DIY mango hair mask. Mash up some chopped mango slices and mix it with a tablespoon of aloe vera gel and castor oil. Apply this from root to tip and wash it off with shampoo after an hour.
To load up on the haircare benefits of mangoes and leave my mane with its fruity scent, I’m using the Organic Harvest Organic Nourishment Shampoo.
Prevents Signs Of Ageing
Mangoes are rich in vitamin A, C, and E which also happens to be the best vitamins for treating signs of ageing. Even the pits of mangoes are rich in fatty acids that make skin more youthful and that’s why mango seed butter is also such a popular ingredient in skincare products.
Applying mango butter from head to toe is a great hack to moisturise your skin. Mango butter can be used to prevent signs of ageing on the body by deeply moisturising the skin.
I’m keeping the Amala Earth Mango Butter | 100% Raw Unrefined on my beauty shelf to moisturise my skin anytime.
So go on and treat yourself to mangoes like Deepika Padukone.
