    Oh gosh, make sure you don’t have a skin allergy to mango sap before trying the mask. It is a very common condition that can be hard to predict because it often only happens when you handle the rinds. I ate mango salsa for years without problems and then my face exploded from handling a fresh one. I was a puffy mess for over a week because I cut the mango rinds and then touched my face.

    Oh gosh, make sure that you don’t have a skin allergy to mango before doing the mask. It is extremely common and hard to detect because it often only happens when you handle the rind. I ate mango in salsa and pre-made juices for years with no problems, but the first time that I cut a fresh mango myself, my face exploded. I had a horrible puffy rash for about a week because I touched the rind and then touched my face. It’s urushiol, the same compound as poison ivy, so avoid if you’ve had a bad reaction to it.
