We all have some kind of skin problems. They are quite common and people from all ages can be affected by them. Some of the most common skin conditions are tags, warts, moles and dark spots, but there are more than 3000 other skin problems that a person may experience.
If you notice any kind of skin change, whether it is in color, texture or smell, it could indicate a potential health problem and you need to act as soon as possible to fix it. Everyone at first thinks of using medications, but they can be rather harsh on the skin and can damage it even more. Fortunately, there are all sorts of natural ingredients you can use to treat these problems – by using them you can prepare simple natural remedies at home that will give back the glow of your skin in no time.
Here are some of the most common skin conditions and the most effective homemade remedies for treating them:
Moles are not really a serious treat, but they can make your skin look unattractive. But if you notice your mole has changed its size or color, be careful because it may be a sign of cancer. There are many ways for treating moles, for example you can try using garlic topically and letting it work for 4 hours a day. You can also use ACV – it isn’t as effective as garlic, but it can be of great help.
For treating moles you can use raw garlic or garlic extract. First, clean the area around the mole by using beeswax or petroleum jelly. Once you’ve cleaned the area, apply the garlic on the mole and cover it with a bandage. For best results, repeat the treatment every day.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Dab some ACV on your moles, by using cotton balls and just leave the remedy to work for 8 hours. You’ll need to repeat this until the moles are gone.
CASTOR OIL AND BAKING SODA
Mix some castor oil with baking soda to get a paste. Apply the paste on the mole, cover it with a bandage and leave it overnight. Rinse well with warm water in the morning. Do this every night before going to bed.
Warts are a result of the HPV virus and usually are treated with salicylic acid or cryogenically. Some people have had great results by wrapping duct tape over the warts, but I think it’s much safer to use natural remedies and at the same time they provide much better results.
Take a banana peel and rub the warts with the inside part. Do this procedure every night until the wart disappears. But be patient, because the process may take up to a couple of weeks before you see the results.
You can also use raw honey to get rid of the warts. Just rub the raw honey directly on the warts to get rid of them. After you apply the honey wrap your skin with a bandage and leave it to work. If you use raw honey to treat warts it will significantly reduce the chances of the warts’ recurrence.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Dab some ACV on your warts, cover it with a bandage and leave it to work overnight. In the morning, just rinse the area with water. Repeat the treatment until you see the warts disappear.
One of the most powerful remedies for treating warts is garlic. It can make them disappear in a couple of weeks. All you need to do is rub some garlic juice twice a day on the wart directly, wrap the area and in no time you will see the results.
The usual places skin tags appear are the neck, upper chest, underarms and eyelids and are caused by skin rubbing. They can be removed cryogenically or with tying off or cutting, but they best way is with natural remedies.

Make a paste of the baking soda and the castor oil. Apply it on the tags 2-3 times a day and secure it with a bandage. The maximum you can keep the paste in the fridge is 48 hours.
The usual places dark spots appear are the face or limbs. This could be related to liver problems and excessive sun exposure. There are many natural remedies for dark spots which work well if you are persistent.
Lemon is a great skin bleacher and can fade the spots. Just soak a cotton ball with some lemon juice and rub it on the affected areas twice.
Apply some onion juice directly on the spot, leave it to work for 10-15 minutes. After that rinse well with water and repeat the process until you see the spots disappear.
Just apply some raw Aloe Vera on the places you have dark spots and leave it for half an hour. You can even grow the plant at home and use the raw gel directly of the leaves.
The way to use horseradish is by mixing it with vinegar. Apply the mixture on the dark spots and you will notice them vanish soon.
VITAMIN C SERUM
To see some incredible results just apply homemade vitamin C serum on the dark spots.
Cleaning Clogged Pores
When you get too much dirt or excess oil on your skin, it can’t breathe properly and this can lead to numerous problems. Here are some natural remedies that clean pores effectively:
Rub a paste of sugar and lemon on your skin and massage in circular motion. Rinse with warm water when you’re done and repeat the process every day for best results.
For unclogging pores, steaming is a very effective remedy. Put your face over a pot with boiling water with a towel over your head, steam for 10-15 minutes and rinse with warm water once you’re dome. To remove excess dirt from your face, you can also use vinegar.
