Skin problems such as moles, clogged pores, skin breakouts, skin tags and age spots can appear at any point in your life because of changes in your lifestyle and hormones. They have become quite common nowadays.
Thousands of skin and beauty care products promise to give you clear and glowing skin. Instead of relying on these products, try some simple and easy home remedies that can help you improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. Here, we’re presenting you some of them.
Warts are small bumps on the skin or mucous membranes caused by the human papilloma virus or HPV. They are very common and normally treated with salicylic acid or freezing. There are also people who wrap warts in duct tape. Here are some more options that you could try:
A banana peel is the easiest method for wart removal. Just rub the wart every night with a banana peel for two weeks. It will vanish quickly.
Remove a wart in two weeks with the use of crushed garlic and garlic juice. Rub some crushed garlic on the wart every night and put a bandage over it. You can also apply garlic juice to the wart twice a day.
PURE RAW HONEY
The benefits of honey are well recorded and wart removal is one of them. Just rub some honey on the wart at night and wrap it with a bandage. The honey will remove the wart slowly. There are even cases of warts not returning after honey had been used to treat them.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Apple cider vinegar is another natural wart remover. Apply apple cider vinegar at night. Soak a cotton ball with apple cider vinegar and hold it in place with a bandage. It can be left in place overnight or for 24 hours, although you should replace it every day. The wart will shrivel up and disappear slowly.
REMOVING SKIN TAGS
Skin tags are skin growths that stick out from the skin surface. They normally form around the neck, upper chest, underarms and eyelids. The most common cause of skin tags is from skin rubbing against skin. The common treatments for skin tags include tying off, cutting off, and freezing. But, there are some natural remedies available for you to use at home:
TEA TREE OIL
This process is a bit slower than most (up to one month) but is much safer for skin tags found around the eyes. Soak a cotton ball with some water and add a couple drops of tea tree oil. Dab the cotton ball on the skin tag and cover with a bandage. Repeat this process two to three times a day.
Onion is a great ingredient for removing dark spots. Juice juice or blend the onion and apply it to the dark spot. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse off. Apply once a day until the dark spot disappears.
Horseradish is an excellent dark spot remover. Mix some horseradish with vinegar and it will slowly remove the dark spot on your skin. Mix vinegar and horseradish together and apply to the dark spot daily. The dark spot will slowly fade away.
Lemon is another dark spot remover. Soak a cotton ball in lemon juice and rub it on the dark spot twice a day. The lemon will naturally bleach the dark spot.
Aloe is a great substance for removing dark spots. Just put some fresh aloe on the dark spot and leave it on for 30 minutes. Use the inner gel of fresh aloe that may be grown almost anywhere as a house plant.
CLEARING OUT CLOGGED PORES
Oil buildup on the skin can cause pores to clog and make the skin look bumpy. It’s not a serious condition, but they need to be removed if you want smooth skin. If clogged pores are left alone for too long, they may become infected.
