Skin diseases and infections such as moles, age spots, warts, and skin tags are a common problem that many people around the world face every day. They usually start off as a small change in the skin such as a change in the texture, color or even smell and you need to act on it as soon as you notice it.
Of course, pharmaceutical meds can be found everywhere, but they aren’t suitable for every kind of skin and can sometimes cause bad side-effects on the skin.
But there is no need to worry since there are tons of natural alternative remedies that you can use to eliminate these unwanted skin diseases. In today’s article, we will show you some of the best homemade skin remedies that are extremely efficient in eliminating any kind of skin disease and infection. The best thing about them is that they’re really cheap!
Moles can appear on the skin and while they don’t pose a serious threat to the overall health, they can increase and vary in size and can sometimes grow into a bigger problem, like a symptom of cancer. So instead of using chemicals that might make your condition worse and cause inflammation and irritation, here are some natural remedies for moles:
Garlic can be extremely efficient when it comes to eliminating moles. First off, clean the affected area with masking tape and apply the garlic extract and put a bandage to cover the area. You will notice the incredible results in a very short time!
- Castor Oil mixed with Baking Soda
Mix some castor oil and baking soda until you get a homogeneous paste-like mixture. Apply the paste onto the affected area and cover it with a bandage or gauze and let it sit overnight. In the morning, wash the affected area with lukewarm water and you will start to notice the improvements. Repeat this every night until the moles are completely gone.
Using ACV for moles is simple. Just soak a cotton ball in ACV and bandage it on the affected are in order to secure it. Let the cotton ball sit like that for 8 hours. Repeating this will cause the mole to darken and fall off.
Warts are tiny, but tricky since they derive from HPV. The standard treatment involves freezing but a completely different natural way of getting rid of warts suggests wrapping them into duct tape. Strange or not, here are some ways you can get rid of warts:
Bananas are one of the best go-to remedies when it comes to warts. Just rub a banana peel on your warts every day and the warts are going to disappear in no time! And by “no time” we mean that it is going to take somewhere around 1-2 weeks in order to get the desired results.
- Pure Raw Honey
Raw honey is a cure for many things, and warts are one of those things. Just apply some raw honey onto them, wrap them with a bandage and let the honey work its magic!
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Again, ACV is one of the natural remedies that never fails to help. Just apply apple cider vinegar onto the wards with a soaked cotton ball and secure the affected area with a bandage. Let the bandage sit overnight and rinse it in the morning. Repeat until you notice improvements.
Garlic needs only 2 weeks to get rid of warts completely. You can use raw garlic or garlic extract, it is up to you, but for best results we recommend using garlic juice, two times a day.
- Skin Tags
Skin tags can be very unpleasant as they surface on top of the skin around the face, neck, eyelids and upper body. The most common cause is rubbing the skin and the standard treatments include, cutting off and freezing. However, just as the issues above, we are going to provide you with a natural remedy for this too.
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Just as above, soak a cotton ball in ACV and squeeze the extra liquid. Pat the affected area with the cotton ball and let it dry. Repeat this every day until the skin tags dry and fall off.
- Tea Tree Oil
Get a cotton ball and soak it in water. Then, make sure you put in 3-4 drops of tea tree oil. Press the cotton ball on the affected area and secure it with a bandage. Repeat this process 3 times daily for 1 month. The effects will be amazing.
- Baking Soda and Castor Oil
The castor oil and baking soda mixture can be used for skin tags also. Prepare the paste and apply it onto the affected area. Secure it well with a bandage. Repeat this 2 times a day. Make sure you keep the paste in the fridge for the next 48 hours.
- Dark Spots
Dark spots usually come with age and they are most commonly found on the face. The main cause is sun exposure and liver irregularities. And although they don’t look well, there is a way to eliminate them. Here is how:
Packed with Vitamin C, lemon has properties that make the dark spots fade away. Soak a cotton ball in lemon juice and rub it on the dark spots. Repeat this 2 times a day.
- Aloe Vera
Put raw Aloe Vera gel extracted from the leaves on the dark spot and let it sit for about 30 minutes.
Onions are packed with health benefits, and eliminating dark spots is one of those benefits. Blend an onion and apply the paste-like mixture on the dark spot. Let it sit for 15 minutes and rinse it with water. Repeat this process every day until the dark spots start to fade.
Mix vinegar with horseradish and apply it directly onto the dark spots every day. Soon enough you will start noticing improvements as the dark spots will start to fade.
- Vitamin C Serums
For this one, use homemade vitamin C serums. Apply them to the dark spots and the results will follow shortly after. The homemade vitamin C serums are also good for removing damaged skin tissue.
- Cleansing Clogged Pores
When our skin gets in contact with dirt from outside, pores get clogged and the breathing of the skin is interrupted. In order to get your old glowing and smooth skin back, follow these two all natural steps.
- Sugar Scrub
Mix lemon with sugar until you get a paste-like mixture. Apply it onto your skin with a cotton ball using a circular motion to massage the affected areas. Once you’ve covered all of the areas, rinse your face with lukewarm water.
Another famous way to unclog pores is by water steaming. It not only will unclog your pores but it will make your face shiny and smooth as well. Just boil some water and place your face above the boiling water and cover your head with a towel. In order to get rid of extra dirt, add ACV.
