People are so vain these days! In an effort to look flawless, people go to major extremes to get rid of all of their skim blemishes and deficiencies. Today I’m going to talk about something many people want to hear about – how to safely get rid of skin tags.
What are Skin Tags?
Skin tags and the little flaps of growth can add unwanted texture to the skin, and can be found on various parts of the body. They are painless, yet a nuisance.
There are a number of ways that these pesky intruders can be wiped out, leaving a clean slate. Luckily, if you cannot afford a dermatologist, there are a natural ways to get rid of them, using things found in your kitchen! Firstly, be well versed in your oils.
There is a difference between essential oils, and oils used daily. Essential oils can help stimulate the skin cells, to quickly repair the body and skin. Skin tags can also be removed this way. Applying oregano oil can aid you in wiping out the tags. Apply around four to five drops of oregano oil directly onto the tag, three times a day. The direct contact will enable the skin to soak up all the benefits that oregano oil has to offer, which includes it being an antiseptic agent and has antispasmodic properties.
Another option is tea tree oil. Due to its harsh anti fungal properties, it works to rid of the inflammation within the skin. Use this method, twice a day. Always dilute tea tree oil with water before applying it or else it could result in some serious irritation, and make your skin worse. Natural oils can be irritable in nature and should be used carefully, diluted and with a cotton ball for application. The skin tags should then be covered with a band-aid to let the tag dry out and fall off as quickly as possible.
Time to go into the kitchen and grab some ingredients! Making a simple paste can really speed the process. Castor oil and baking soda can be mixed in a bowl, till the consistency is thick enough to be applied as a paste, and is not runny. Using a cotton swab, dip it into the concoction and apply to the tag, it might irritate but it will definitely be highly effective. Garlic has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and cleansing properties. Grind up a fresh clove into a small bowl, dip your cotton swab and apply to the tag. Covering with the bandage can close off the tag to bacteria and air, cutting off its oxygen supply can make it fall faster. Treating with apple cider vinegar has been proven to be effective in the removal of skin tags. As per before, use a cotton swab to apply the vinegar to the tag and rub in circular motions to increase the absorption intake. Repeating this process three times a day, can make the tag fall off within two weeks. You can also use honey for skincare as well! If you experience any irritation, remember to dilute with water.
Lastly, always see a dermatologist before doing anything. Doctors are highly skilled and can remove the tag by burning it off in an antiseptic environment. They can provide antibiotics that prevent an infection taking place.
Those tips are all things you can do at home, with your own supplies, on your own time. I’m currently testing a product that made some lofty promises about removing skin tags. When I have some feedback for you all, I’ll post a review.
