It would be really wonderful if we all had clear and glowing skin, that’s something that we are all wishing for, but unfortunately in some periods of our lives as a result of changing our lifestyle habits or hormonal imbalance, we may suffer from some skin issues such as skin tags, moles, skin breakouts and dark spots.
The first thing we all do to solve the problem is going to the pharmacy and buying the most expensive skin care product because we believe is the best way to get rid of the skin issues. But in this case our advice would be to forget about the expensive products and to try some of these homemade remedies.
So instead of going to the pharmacy you can visit the grocery store for some cheap products that will make wonders to your skin. Cheap, easy homemade remedies with fantastic results – you must try them!
Here are some skin issues and the product you can treat them with:
Moles can be result of sun exposure or genetics. They are very common and can appear to both children and adults. The moles appear when the cells in the skin grow in a cluster instead of spreading all over the skin. These cells are called malanocytes and they are the ones that make the pigment that gives the natural color of the skin.
The most effective product in eliminating the moles is the garlic extract or plain garlic. You just need to protect the skin around the mole (using masking type or petroleum jelly) apply the garlic extract or pressed garlic to the mole, cover it with a bandage and live it for 4 hours. We recommend to repeat this daily.
- Baking soda and castor oil
You can also use mixture of castor oil and baking soda to eliminate moles. Mix together both ingredients and you will get a gummy paste. Cover the mole with the paste, bandage it and leave it overnight. Rinse the area in the morning. For best results repeat the procedure every night.
- Apple cider vinegar
The fastest way to remove a mole is using an apple cider vinegar. You just need to soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, put it on the mole and leave it like that in the next 8 hours. You will notice that the mole will blacken and fall off.
Warts are small, rough and hard growths and usually have similar color like the rest of the skin. They are result of the human papilloma virus (HPV). There are different ways to treat warts such as usage of salicylic acid or freezing. These are our suggested solutions:
Using a banana peel is the easiest way to get rid of warts. All you need to do is to rub the wart with banana peel every night for two weeks.
- Pure raw honey
Rub honey on the wart before sleeping and cover it with a bandage. Warts eliminated in this way, will never appear again.
You can use the juice from the garlic or crushed garlic to remove a wart in 2-3 weeks. You need to rub the crushed garlic on the wart, cover it with bandage and leave it overnight. Or apply the juice from the garlic on the wart twice a day.
These small pieces of skin that appear on the surface of the skin have the same color as the skin and usually appear as result of rubbing skin to skin. They can appear around the neck, upper chest, eyelids and underarms. Skin tags are harmless and people usually remove them because of cosmetics reasons.

Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and dab the skin tag. You can leave it on the spot as long as you want. You will notice that the skin tag will darken and will fall off by itself in few days.
