Skin tags, warts, blackheads, moles, and age spots are some common skin issues many people deal with every day. Having clear skin can boost your confidence and provide you with a more positive outlook. Read on to learn how you can naturally rid yourself of several skin issues.
Lemon Juice for Skin Tags
The citric acid in lemons can fight the cells in a skin tag causing it dry out and eventually fall off. Apply lemon juice to a cotton ball and place it over the skin tag you wish to remove. You can use a Band-Aid to hold the cotton ball in place. Replace the cotton ball and Band-Aid every day until the skin tag will fall off.
Aloe Vera for Skin Tags
Since Aloe Vera oil is a natural inflammatory, it may be useful when attempting to remove skin tags at home. Rub Aloe Vera gel directly on the skin tag several times a day until the skin tag is removed.
Vitamin C for Warts
While warts are typically found on the hands and feet, most are not serious enough to seek medical help from a doctor. There are several ways you can treat warts at home.
One way to treat warts is with Vitamin C, which is a virus fighting agent that can help remove the wart. Using a powdered form of Vitamin C (typically found at a health foods store), you can mix it with water to create a paste. Apply the paste to the wart and cover it with a Band-Aid or gauze.
Replace the Band-Aid or gauze daily. You can use this treatment until the wart is gone.
Banana Peels for Warts
Another topical treatment for warts can be found in a banana peel. You can either place a piece of the peel over your wart and cover it with a Band-Aid or take a spoon and scoop off the white inside part of the peel and place it over your wart.
The University of Maryland Medical Center suggests using tea tree oil in conjunction with the banana peel treatment to maximize its benefits.
Baking soda for Blackheads
Blackheads can be an unsightly nuisance on an otherwise clear face. Stop using those peeling masks and use baking soda to help clear away those clogged pores.
Use a small plastic container, combine baking soda and a small amount of water to create a paste. You can apply the paste to your face and let it sit for about 10 minutes before washing off. Make sure you are applying the paste to a clean face so you don’t invite other dirt and bacteria into your pores.
Tea Tree Oil and Cumin for Moles
According to Natural Remedies, there is a variety of ways to treat moles at home. Tea tree essential oil is noted to be effective when removing warts. Apply 2-3 drops of the oil several times a day for best results.
As an alternative method, use ground cumin in a poultice ( an herbal paste) applying the paste to the mole for up to three weeks.
Castor Oil for Age Spots
A nurse from Brandeis University recommends using castor oil to reduce the appearance of age spots. Castor Oil is made from pressing the seeds of a castor oil plant and provides many health benefits including increased lymph flow and organ function.
Apply the oil (make sure it is cold pressed) to any age spots you may have with a cotton ball daily.
Be advised when performing any at-home treatments for skin issues, you may experience bleeding, infection, or scarring, particularly if you have sensitive skin. If you notice any discomfort during the treatment, discontinue use and, if needed, seek medical attention.
