The Beautiful Benefits:
Mangos contain fatty acids moisturize and soften your skin cells. Avocados have a lot of skin protecting antioxidants, like beta-carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E. They work together to prevent wrinkles and slow down signs of aging. Vitamin C is necessary for the creation of elastin and collagen, which are responsible for binding skin cells together to keep them firm. Avocados are a great source of vitamin C in addition to other compounds that keep your skin safe from wrinkle-creating free radicals. Manuka honey reduces redness and soothes inflamed skin while helping it hold in moisture. It also oxygenates your pores and draws out bacteria to give you some extra help in acne-prone areas.
