Skin tags, warts, blackheads, and age spots are common problems that shroud the beautiful skin that Mother Nature gave us. But nature also gives us remedies that are gentler to our skin without skimping on the results and ways to cleanse the skin for a beautiful glow. There are lots of natural methods to prevent these unaesthetic issues from appearing.
Generally, these abnormalities are considered to be health problems, but it is important to remember that they are very common and a normal part of living life. Still, exacerbating these problems by using harsh chemicals or treatments, may lead to other health problems.
Remove Skin Tags
It is not yet known what exactly is the cause of skin tags, but it’s believed that they might occur more due to genetics. They usually appear in folds, and when overweight, where your skin excessively rubs together.
One great solution can be apple cider vinegar. It can be applied 2-3 times a day over the course of 2 weeks using a cotton ball. Eventually, the skin tag should change color and fall.
Tea tree oil is also considered an effective solution for removing them, being most efficient if applied the same way for at least a month.
Human papillomavirus, or HPV, is considered responsible for skin warts. Although some believe it can be cured naturally, it is always advisable to discuss with your doctor if you think you have a wart. They can carry HPV to different areas of your skin and genitals, causing more warts, and are responsible for cervical (uterine) cancer in women. They are highly contagious so they could easily be passed to other members of your family.
Age Spots/Dark Spots Remedies
Sun damage over a lifetime and liver irregularities are the main causes of age spots and dark spots. Lemon juice, Vitamin C serums (probably the most effective one), aloe vera and even onion juice can easily deal with them.
One of the most unlikely natural solutions against dark spots is a mixture of horseradish and vinegar. It can really get the job done!
Those obnoxious blackheads on the nose are caused mainly by dirty or clogged pores, due to the prevalent environmental pollutants that accumulate on our skin throughout the day.
Mixing together raw organic sugar and lemon juice into a manageable paste can be a great scrub to exfoliate and soften your skin. An organic cotton ball can be used to massage your face, but if you want to go off the books, just use your hands!
Another great way to cleanse and open your spores is by steaming your face. You can place a towel over your head and over a pot of boiled water, and for 10-15 minutes you can enjoy your own personal sauna. To shrink your pores back up, just rinse with some colder (not frigid) water.
We should always be careful and wisely choose products or skin treatments. Remember to take into consideration that our bodies are porous and whatever we decide to apply to our outer body finds a way of getting inside. But Mother Nature has lots of tricks up its sleeve so whenever you choose a natural remedy, your skin will certainly thank you for it!
