13 natural methods for removing skin tags, warts, blackheads, age spots, and moles

The majority of the human population has some sort of skin issue. The idea that we’re all born with smooth, clear skin that stays that way until we die is fairly ludicrous.

It’s incredibly normal to have the likes of moles, skin tags, warts and blackheads on your face and body. But that doesn’t mean you necessarily want them there.

If you’re looking to achieve healthier, nicer-looking skin, there’s usually no need to visit the doctor or pay for an expensive treatment. Instead, try out these simple, skin-friendly remedies for removing skin tags, warts, blackheads, age spots, and moles.

For skin tags:

1. Lemon juice

Lemon juice is acidic, which will cause the skin tag to slowly decompose. It is also antiseptic, which means it can help to stop unnatural growths on the skin.

2. Castor oil and baking soda

Mix the two ingredients to make a thick paste. Dip a cotton swab in the paste and dab it on the skin tag. This is among the best home remedies for skin tags.

3. Oregano oil

Try oregano oil, a powerful antiseptic and antispasmodic, to help the skin tag dry up. For best results, apply five or six drops of oregano oil to the tag three times a day for about a month.

For age spots

4. Onion and apple cider vinegar

Apply a mixture of equal parts onion juice and apple cider vinegar directly to the age spot. To make the onion juice, blend an onion, and then drain using a strainer.

5. Buttermilk and tomato

The potent acids in this odd combination can help fade age spots.

For moles:

6. Cumin

Natural Remedies says that ground cumin and water, mixed to form a paste, can help reduce your moles when applied regularly over a period of three weeks.

7. Essential-oil bath

For moles on multiple body areas, try soaking in a hot bath treated with 1 cup baking soda, 1 cup sea salt, 6 drops lavender essential oil and 3 drops frankincense oil.

For Warts

8. Apple cider vinegar

Try applying apple cider vinegar directly to the wart once a day. Another method is to affix a vinegar-soaked cotton ball to the wart using an adhesive bandage. The acid in the vinegar eats away at the flesh of the wart, eventually causing it to change color and peel away. Avoid the urge to pick at it! You want the whole core of the wart to fall away so that it doesn’t grow back. (Note: Apple cider vinegar has a ton of uses.)

9. Pineapple juice

This works on the same theory as the above two tips but with a tropical twist. Soaking a wart in pineapple juice exposes it to acids that work to break it down.

10. Apple cider vinegar

Try applying apple cider vinegar directly to the wart once a day. Another method is to affix a vinegar-soaked cotton ball to the wart using an adhesive bandage. The acid in the vinegar eats away at the flesh of the wart, eventually causing it to change color and peel away. Avoid the urge to pick at it! You want the whole core of the wart to fall away so that it doesn’t grow back. (Note: Apple cider vinegar has a ton of uses.)

For Blackheads

11. Baking soda

As an antiseptic, baking soda cleans your skin, helps neutralize pH levels, and encourages skin to produce less oil, thereby helping the fight against blackheads. It also exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving your skin soft and smooth. Add a little water to form a paste and apply it to your blackheads. Leave it for about 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

12. Oatmeal

This delicious breakfast food also makes a great cleanser, working to loosen debris stuck in your pores and help eliminate blackheads. Cook the oatmeal as usual, allow it to cool, and then apply it to your face. Leave it on for 10 to 20 minutes.

13. Lemon juice

Is there anything lemon juice can’t do? It contains alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) citric acid, which helps remove dead skin and unclog pores. Rich in vitamin C, lemon juice also stimulates collagen production to improve overall skin health. After cleansing as per your normal routine, use a cotton ball to dab lemon juice onto blackheads. Leave it on overnight, or rinse after 10 minutes. The juice will sting if you have broken skin.

Always exercise caution when using home remedies, and don’t apply any substances high in natural acids to broken skin. Use only when the skin around the blemish is clean and healthy. As with most skin treatments, your results can vary. Likewise, they’re not instant fixes, but with daily use, you could see results within a few weeks. Let us know which treatments work for you!
