Mango Fruit ~

The refreshing Mango fruit is not only delicious to eat but an ideal natural ingredient to use in a face pack recipe.

Being rich in beta-carotene, it is an excellent antioxidant which gives the skin a more youthful appearance. Who does not like the sound of that?

Mangoes are effective in helping to restore the elasticity of the skin which tends to decrease with age and are a natural way of regenerating skin cells.

An extremely versatile fruit that may be used in different homemade beauty products, not just face packs, including facial cleansers, scrubs and body butter to name a few by easily changing ingredients in recipes to suit .

Making your own beauty products is far easier than you may think.

Having worked within the cosmetic and beauty Industries I have now been delving into the world of natural skin care and mangoes are a definite winner.

Knowing exactly what is going into your skin care makes sense. No toxins, chemicals or synthetic fragrances - just all natural goodness.

Grow You Own Mangoes

Introduction to Mango Fruit ~

Originating in South Asia, it is the best known and widely cultivated tropical fruit.

Cultivated for thousands of years in Asia, this sweet juicy fruit made its way to East Africa in the 10th Century AD and has been popping up across the globe since, favoring frost-free climates that are tropical or warm sub-tropical temperatures.

India is the leading producer of mangoes but not for export as they tend to consume most their mangoes.

Mango trees, that produce the fruit may reach a lofty height of 35-40 metres (115-130 ft) and incredibly have been known to still produce fruit at the grand old age of 300 years old.

Ripe mango fruit, depending on the cultivar may be yellow, orange, red or green and can take 3-6 months to ripen.

      Hope all is good down your neck of the world! Lucky you having the climate for mangoes, very few places in Europe (Spain and the Canary Islands are the only ones I know) have that tropical climate! Hope you enjoy this treat for the skin, have fun and enjoy!! Many thanks for stopping by and your great support!!

      This is great! Another beauty treatment delicious enough to eat. Mangoes are in season here in Peru and I think I could spare enough to include in a face mask. I'm going to try mine with yogurt. Thank you, Suzanne!
