Much more than a delicious fruit, it is a well-known fact that citrus fruits are great for the skin and mandarin is no different. A citrus fruit from the same family as oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit, mandarins (and their peel) are stacked with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which are essential for a healthy immune system, good vision as well as maintaining healthy skin and healing wounds. Mandarins also support the healthy regeneration of skin cells and it can combat the free radicals we’re exposed to in our everyday environments from things like air pollution.
Mandarins are a good source of Vitamins A, B, and have high levels of Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that can prevent infections, cramps, and vomiting. When it comes to flawless and blemish-free skin, the peel of a Mandarin contains essential oils that have been used in skin care preparations for decades, known for their anti-ageing and rejuvenating qualities and for greatly improving the complexion and skin health. Mandarins also consist of nutrients and minerals like potassium that is known to lower blood pressure.
