Welcome to our compendium of all things skin related! Today you’ll learn about a bunch of natural ways to remove all sorts of skin problems, such as tags, age spots, moles, warts and all!
Flawless skin is not a challenge for her, but I wonder how old she is.
Of course, it’s not as easy for everyone. The more we age, the more difficult it becomes to have the perfect looking skin, or look youthful. Thanks to AuntyAcid, here are some of the best natural skin care methods.
PART ONE: Warts
Everyone’s seen a wart, and everyone agrees they’re not pretty to look at. On the positive side, they’re not dangerous, although it’s been known for them to transfer from one person to another. Here are natural ways to get rid of them:
1. Fresh garlic
Take a clove of garlic and crush it nicely. Then, apply it to the wart in question and wrap it in a bandage. Remove it after 30 minutes and wash the area. If you do this twice a day for at least a week or so, the wart should fall off.
2. Vitamin C
Crush a few vitamin C pills into half a tablespoon of water. Mix it well and apply it on the wart, then bandage up the area. It’s okay if it burns a little.
PART TWO: Moles
Usually, moles are the result of either genetics or exposure to the sun. Here are a couple of natural remedies for removing moles.
1. Baking soda and castor oil
Mix a few drops of castor oil with baking soda and rub it over the mole you hate. Leave it to fry for several hours and repeat it. Do this twice a day for a month.
2. Pineapple juice
It won’t remove the mole, but it will lighten the coloration. Just soak a cotton ball in some pineapple juice and band-aid it to the mole. Do this two times a day for a month and you should start seeing results.
PART THREE: Blackheads
Young and all, we all have blackheads. It’s natural but doesn’t look good, we must admit. Blackheads occur as a build-up of dead skin cells or dirt. Here’s how to remove them.
1. Cinnamon and lemon juice
Mix some lemon juice with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, then apply it to the area that has blackheads. Rinse it off after 15 minutes.
2. Oatmeal, honey and tomato juice
Slap a teaspoon of honey into a bowl of oatmeal and add some tomato juice. Mix it well and apply over the blackheads, then rinse your face after 15 minutes.
PART FOUR: Skin tags
Skin tags are like miniature warts, although cuter. They’re common, soft and usually vary in color. Here are a couple of natural hacks to deal with them.
1. Apple cider vinegar
Dip a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and then rub it over your skin tag. If it stings, it’s expected and should stop stinging soon. Use a bandage to attach the cotton ball to the skin tag and keep it for a few hours. If you do this three times a day for at least several weeks, you should see improvements.
2. Tea tree oil
Soak a cotton ball in water, then add four drops of tea tree oil to it. Proceed to massage your skin with it and wash the area after several hours. Do this three times a day for a couple of weeks and the skin tag should fall off.
PART FIVE: Age spots
Surprise surprise – age spots occur naturally due to aging. But there are equally natural methods to deal with them too.
1. Rosehip essential oil
Moisten the area before applying the rosehip oil. Then massage it for at least 2 minutes – rosehip contains powerful antioxidants that will make the age spot look better.
2. Geranium oil
Geranium oil contains antioxidants too. Mix five drops of this with either olive oil or coconut oil, and apply it to your age spots every night for two weeks. You should see results after that period of time.
