Why a mango coconut smoothie you ask? That's because mangos are rich in beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A and helps clear up pores and banish acne. It also brightens skin, giving you an even complexion and a J.Lo-like glow. As for coconuts, they're a natural anti-inflammatory, which helps soothe skin and reduce breakouts. Plus, who doesn't like mango or coconut in their smoothies? It's like the most delicious combination ever! Try this mango coconut smoothie recipe & banish adult acne now!

Here's what you need:
