Mango is a juicy stone fruit from different species of tropical trees. The mango is native to South Asia from where the “common mango” or “Indian mango”, has been distributed worldwide to become one of the most widely cultivated fruits in the tropics. It is the national fruit of India, Pakistan, and the Philippines, and the national tree of Bangladesh.
The mango has been a vital cure for health and beauty since the birth of civilization. It is packed with vitamins and its health benefits are astounding. Buddha found peace in the Mango grove — Egyptians used it while building the pyramids to sustain moisture and fend off sunburn. Used for prevention of skin cancer, the mango replenishes the skin of moisture while leaving behind a sweet, honey-like scent that is a favorite in aromatherapy.
Scoop out 75% of the mango pulp and rub the peel across skin to replenish with vitamins and promote healing and protection. Eat the scooped pulp — it is high in vitamins A and C, and we all know that skins beauty begins internally.
