You can use 没关系 or 沒事.
To say "never mind" in general, you have a couple of choices. 算了 or 沒關係 both convey the general idea. 算了 however maybe be perceived as implying some level of impatience. In this specific context, 沒事 also works well.
But its mostly fine to use either, or both together as "算了，沒關係" (or "算了，沒事").
In this scenario , you can say
There is a benefits to this syntax. It makes someone feel that you have a good relationship.
You can also say
It is very stylish!
"mind" = "心意"
so my best translation
for "never mind"
is "不要 放在 心 上" , (bu-yao fang-zai xin shang)
i.e. "don't put (or carry) anything in your heart (mind)"
"別 掛心", (bie gua-xin)
"不 介意" (bu jie-yi)
Please note that, I always suggest using '心' or '意' in this case, because it catches the meaning of 'mind'.
没关系，不用了。（It's ok now, not need it）is one of the common expressions for never mind.
Some people would also double 没事 (not have business or affair), such as 没事! 没事!
