Below are five essential nutrients that mangoes contain in abundance, thanks to which mangoes can prove to be an excellent help in maintaining healthy skin:

3. Vitamin K – Another fat-soluble vitamin, Vitamin K, helps to reduce stretch marks and spider veins.
4. Vitamin A – Also known as Retinol, Vitamin A eliminates fine lines by stimulating collagen production and lightening dark patches on the skin, making it more even-looking.
5. Vitamin B6 – A water-soluble vitamin, Vitamin B6 reduces sebum on the surface, making it less oily.
6. Copper – Copper reduces wrinkles and fine lines, lightens the skin and fights against damage caused by free radicals.
7. Potassium – Potassium keeps cells hydrated to moisturize the skin.
8. Magnesium – Magnesium helps to reduce oily skin, acne, and rosacea.
