Home Spa Treatment: Mango Toner to Treat Red Skin

It is winter and red skin seems overly abundant - the harsh cold and over drying heat can really thrash the tender flesh of your face.

Try this simple mango aloe toner to soothe your chapped or windburned cheeks.

You are going to need:

1 cup aloe vera gel, chilled

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mango

1 lime, juiced

Puree the aloe vera gel, chopped mango, and the juice of one lime. Chill mixture, and apply to face at night with clean cotton pads. The toner will feel slightly sticky from the exfoliating sugars in the mango. Leave on overnight or while you watch your favorite shows, and rinse with cool water (hot water can dry out and irritate your skin. Toner will keep for approximately 2 weeks if refrigerated.

Be careful, there's a good number of people who are allergic to mango skins and can even have a reaction to mango flesh that is cut close to the skin. Mango skins can cause an allergic reaction much like poison oak oils. I'm personally very allergic to both mango skin and flesh cut close to the skin. If you're not sure if you're allergic, I'd give this a test run on a small patch of skin before slathering it on.

I couldn't waste that glorious mango on my face - I love to eat it way too much to do that.

I can understand the mango and the aloe, but wouldn't lime, as a very acidic citrus, be irritating to the skin?
