Natural Ways To Fix Common Skins Problems

Skin diseases and issues are very common among people of all shapes, sizes, ages, and gender. Treatment can be a precarious process. 

There are over 3,000 different skin issues on record. Moles, blackheads, warts, and age spots are among the most common problems. 

Changes in the skin should not be ignored. Changes in texture, color, or even smell should be taken seriously. However, pharmaceutical medications can be very rough on skin. 

Here are some homemade recipes to protect and heal your skin.

1. Moles

While not a serious health issue initially, moles that change in color or size could be a symptom of skin cancer.

Crushing up garlic and spreading it on a mole for four hours a day can help remove a mole. Apple cider vinegar can also help. Here are some DIY solutions for moles:

  • Garlic

Clean the skin around the mole with petroleum jelly or masking tape. Apply either raw garlic or garlic extract. Repeat the process until removed.

  • Castor Oil and Baking Soda

Mix the oil and baking soda together until you get a paste. Apply the paste to the mole and place a bandage over it. Leave the paste to work over night. In the morning, rinse the area well. Repeat the process every night until you see results.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar

Saturate a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and secure it to the mole with a bandage. Allow the vinegar to work for eight hours. Repeat as often as needed until the mole falls off.

2. Warts

Warts are a symptom of human papillomavirus, a common virus often referred to by its acronym, HPV. Usually, warts are treated with salicylic acid or cryotherapy, but there are home remedies to try:

  • Bananas

Apply the inside of a banana peel to a wart nightly. Repeat until the wart is gone. It could take a few weeks before anything happens.

  • Raw Honey

Rub raw honey on to a wart and then wrap the area with a bandage. As an added benefit, this method lowers the chances of the wart reoccurring.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar

Put some apple cider vinegar on the wart with a cotton ball. Bandage it up and let it work until the morning. Repeat this every night until the wart is gone.

  • Garlic

Apply raw or juiced garlic to the wart every night and bandage. For even better results, do this twice a day.


3. Skin Tags

Skin tags appear on the neck, chest, eyelids, and underarms, but they can show up anywhere. They're usually treated with surgery, blood starvation, or cryotherapy. Here are some more gentle, natural remedies:

  • Apple Cider Vinegar

Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and dab the skin tag, it will eventually fall off after darkening.

  • Tea Tree Oil

Apply a few drops of tea tree oil to a cotton ball that's been run under tap water. Place the cotton ball on the skin tag and bandage it up. Do this two or three times a day for a month and the issue will clear up.

  • Castor Oil and Baking Soda

Mix both the ingredients to form a paste. Apply it to the skin tag and bandage the area. Do this two or three times a day. Extra paste can be stored in the fridge for two days.

4. Dark Spots

Aging can cause dark spots to manifest on the face or limbs. No one is exactly sure why they occur. Some people think it has to do with exposure to the sun or irregularities in the liver. Here are some ways to treat them:

  • Lemon

Soak a cotton ball with lemon juice and rub it on the dark spots, twice daily.

  • Aloe Vera

Apply raw aloe vera to a dark spot. Allow it to soak for 30 minutes. Repeat daily until dark spots begin to fade.

  • Onion

Onions are great for removing dark spots. Blend or juice an onion and put it on any dark spots. Allow it to work for 10-15 minutes before rinsing the area with soap and water. Keep doing this every day until the spots fade.

  • Horseradish

Mix horseradish and vinegar and put it on the spots. If you do this every daily you'll start to notice improvement.

5. Clogged Pores

Dirt and grime can clog pores. Here are some ideas to keep your skin looking beautiful:

  • Sugar Scrub

Mix sugar and lemon together to form a paste. Apply it to the skin with a cotton ball and then rinse with lukewarm water.

  • Steam

Placing a towel on your head and leaning over a pot of boiling water will expose your skin to a lot of steam. Do this for up to 15 minutes and then wash and rinse your face. Vinegar can also be used to remove extra dirt.
