The one thing I like about summers in Pakistan is not the heat! Not the flowing sweat and obviously not the load shedding! But it’s the exotic sweetness and aroma of mangoes that almost everyone loves.
The scrumptious fragrance, the mouth-watering aroma, the tempting taste, the exotic sweetness is not only delicious for our taste buds but also for our skin. Yes Mango ensembles so many beauty secrets but not many people are aware of them. This soft juicy fruit can be amazing for your skin so this give your skin some mango treats for a younger and fresher looking skin.
Mangoes are rich in Vitamin A and contain powerful anti-oxidants, which helps in regeneration of skin cells. They are useful in restoring the elasticity of skin and prevent wrinkle formation. Besides, it also helps to shield the skin from clogged pores and sun damages.
