Lifestyle changes can influence quite a lot the way in which your skin looks. Skin problems such as warts, moles or blackheads can be issues that every person has to deal with at a certain point in his/her life. In spite of all those care products that only promise to treat these problems, but have little effect, there are natural remedies that can not only make you forget about these ‘imperfections’, but improve your general health too.
Natural remedies to remove moles
Moles are nothing else but skin pigmentation, which usually are dark colored and are caused by excessive sun exposure and genetics.
Garlic – Apply some garlic extract or pressed garlic on the affected skin, then cover the moles with a bandage, leaving it sit for about 4 hours. Repeat the remedy every day, until you get positive results. Make sure you protect the area around the moles by applying some petroleum jelly.
Apple cider vinegar – Take a cotton ball and soak it into some apple cider vinegar. Apply the ball on the moles and cover it up with a bandage or tape. Leave the remedy sit for about 8 hours before removing the bandage away. By that time, the mole will have become dark-colored and will fall off.
Baking soda and castor oil – Combine some baking soda and castor oil in order to obtain a gummy paste and apply it on your moles. Cover the area with a bandage and leave it sit overnight. The next morning remove the remedy and rinse the skin with warm water. Repeat this procedure on a daily basis in order to get positive results.
