People at any age deal with some sort of skin issues, and some treatments may cause further complications.
Dermatologists have recognized over 3,000 different skin issues, including warts, age spots, blackheads, moles, skin tags, etc.
Take more care about your skin. Check for any abnormal changes in color, texture, and smell. Keep in mind that although conventional products may provide good results, they are rather aggressive and may damage skin.
Go natural, and treat your skin issues naturally. Natural remedies are always a better alternative than pharmaceutical solutions.
We give you the most effective home remedies. The good thing is that these are easily available and cheap.
Warts are caused by HPV, or human papilloma virus. The most common treatments use salicylic acid, freezing, and duct tape. But, we offer you something completely different.
Bananas: Rub your warts with the inner side of a banana peel. Do this every night before you go to bed. Repeat the treatment until your warts are gone. This should take about 2 weeks.
Pure raw honey: Apply a thin layer of raw honey on your warts, and secure that area with a bandage. Let the honey work overnight, and rinse well in the morning. Repeat the treatment until the warts disappear.
Garlic: Both raw garlic and garlic juice work well. Rub the garlic directly onto the wart, and wrap it with a bandage. Repeat the treatment twice a day for two weeks.
- Dark spots
Dark spots are part of the aging process, and usually appear on the face or the limbs. Dermatologists have not determined the real cause of their occurrence yet, but they believe that sun exposure and liver issues are responsible for the occurrence of dark spots.
Lemon: Soak a cotton ball in fresh lemon juice, and rub it onto the spots, preferably twice a day. The skin-lightening properties of lemon juice will fade the spots.
Aloe vera: Apply fresh aloe vera gel on the spots. Let it work for half an hour. Do not go for the commercial product. Grow your own aloe vera plant, and squeeze the gel directly from the leaves.
Onion: Onions can be used for many purposes. These veggies do wonders when it comes to removing dark spots. Juice an onion, and apply the juice onto the affected area. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then rinse off.
- Clogged pores

Sugar scrub: Combine sugar and lemon juice into a paste. Rub the paste onto the affected area. Use cotton pads for better application, and consider applying the paste with circular movements. Rinse with warm water.
Steam treatment: This is one of the greatest methods when it comes to skin cleansing. Hold your face over steaming water, and cover the head with a towel. Hold in this position for 15 minutes. Rinse your face with lukewarm water, and cleanse your face using apple cider vinegar. This will remove any dirt.
Moles do not cause serious skin damage, but if you notice any changes in their color and shape, consult a dermatologist because it may be cancer. However, you can easily treat them with crushed garlic. Apply it on the moles, and let it do the magic for couple of hours. Apple cider vinegar is also an excellent remedy.
Garlic: Disinfect the skin around the mole using petroleum jelly or beeswax. You can also apply crushed garlic onto the mole, and secure it with a bandage. Repeat the treatment until the mole disappears.
Apple cider vinegar: Soak a cotton ball in raw apple cider vinegar, and apply it directly onto the affected area. Secure it with a bandage. Leave the cotton ball on for 8 hours.
Castor oil and baking soda: Combine castor oil and baking soda into a thick paste. Apply it directly onto the mole, and secure with a bandage. Hold it overnight, and rinse in the morning. Do this every night, and the mole will soon disappear.
- Skin tags
These are more common on the eyelids, neck area, upper chest and underarms. In other words, skin tags usually appear in areas where skin folds. Freezing, tying off and surgeries are the most common solutions. Here are some less aggressive and all-natural alternatives:
Apple cider vinegar: Soak a cotton ball in raw apple cider vinegar. Squeeze out the excess, and apply it onto the tag. Leave it on for a while.
Castor oil and baking soda: Combine the ingredients into a paste, and apply it onto the skin tag. Secure with a bandage, and repeat the process twice a day.
Tea tree oil: Soak a cotton ball in water. Add a few drops of high-quality tea tree oil on the cotton ball, and apply it onto the skin tag. Secure with a bandage. Repeat the treatment twice a day for a month.
