Our skin reacts to all kinds of external sensations like sun and pollution. However, it also reacts to internal fluctuations and abnormalities lie hormonal imbalances, stress, wrong and unhealthy diets, and much more. The most common changes made by some external sensation are moles, warts, skin tags, blackheads, an
d age spots. Modern medicine has tried really hard to cure those skin “problems” and there are some solutions but nothing definite. On the other side, we have natural ways that have been in use for centuries, and we say “ways” because those are not cures. They shouldn’t be used as the substitute for the professional medical treatment.
Moles are a part of our skin. When they are exposed to the sun, they become darker. You can expect them anywhere on your skin. If you don’t like how they look, you can try to remove them. You can do that by tapping the mole with garlic. That should break the mole down from the inside and it should fall off.
One more way to remove the mole is to apply the apple cider vinegar on it. Just dip a cotton ball in apple vinegar and place it on the mole. Secure it with a bandage and put a medical tape over it. Leave it overnight and do this every night for 10 days. The mole should fall off.
Warts are bumps on your skin caused by human papillomavirus. According to “Healthline”, the most popular solution for this problem is apple cider vinegar. It will slowly burn those warts and the surrounding skin. The wart should fall off. To do this, mix two parts of apple cider vinegar with one part water. Soak a cotton ball with this solution and apply it to the ward. Just like with moles, secure it with tape and leave it overnight. Remove the cotton ball in the morning. Repeat every night, until it falls off.
Skin tags are very soft, benign growths that can appear almost anywhere on the skin, but most commonly on the armpits, eyelids, groin, and breast. One of the most popular natural ways to remove them is tea tree oil. That oil contains antifungal and antiviral properties. That is why it is totally safe to use it on the skin. However, you have to dilute it with a carrier oil because it can dry your skin over time. And be extremely careful when applying it to the area around the eyes because the things can become really messy.
To apply this, clean the affected area, and use the cotton swab to gently massage that area. Put a bandage on that area and let it sit overnight. You should do this every single until it falls off.
Blackheads form when there is a clog or plug in the follicle of hair. Every follicle has one sebaceous gland and hair that makes oil. That oil (sebum) keeps the skin soft and shiny. If there is some dead skin and oil cells, they collect in the opening of the skin follicle. That makes a blackhead. To remove those you need lemon juice. However, you should be careful with this and not use it all the time. It can react to sunlight and cause irritation, change the natural pH balance, and it can cause hyperpigmentation and the sensitivity to the sun. Instead of it, you should maybe use a glycolic or lactic acid-based exfoliant.
These can be black, grey, or brown. They are flat. Most commonly, these appear on sun-exposed areas. One way to remove it is with onion. They contain sulfur and act as antiseptics. To use it, just slice the onion and rub those slices on the area you want to treat. You should do that two or three times per day.
