Learn how to make a mango facial mask from licensed esthetician Joanna Vargas in this skin care video from Howcast.

A lot of people love mango as a snack to eat but I bet you didn’t know that a mango is also an incredible ingredient for your skin. It’s a great source of vitamin C and it’s super hydrating and rich for your skin. So right now we’re going to make a mango face mask. You’re going to need to mash up one whole mango, which I’ve already done in a bowl here. And we’re also going to use a quarter cup of honey, preferably warmed, so that it’s just easier for blending purposes and we’re also going to use almond oil which is really anti-aging and is a great anti-inflammatory. So let’s put everything together.

I’m going to add my honey to my mango. Now, I’m going to add one tablespoon of almond oil. Like I said, mango oil is a great anti-inflammatory so it’s incredibly anti-aging. Combined with the hydrating properties of the honey and the vitamin C of the mango this is an incredible anti-aging mask. It’s also really good for anybody who’s had a lot of sun damage and you really don’t need this to be very thick on the surface of the skin. The mango juice mixed with the honey and the almond oil is really what’s going to make this amazing for your skin. So you just apply a really thin layer, as you can see I’m doing now, and you can see there’s a ton of mango here without me having to apply, you know, big pieces of mango to my skin.

You’re going to leave this on for 20 minutes and then rinse with tepid water. Your skin is going to be lifted and be hydrated and it’s going to be soft and glowing when you’re done. It’s an amazing anti-aging treatment and something you can really do once a week if you want to give yourself a real head start in the anti-aging department.
