Some moles can be a cause for alarm and some can help you look unique. Moles appear on our skin due to skin irritants, abrasions and from being exposed to the sun.
Basically, a mole is a cluster of skin cells which can be found on any part of your body. They are always spread unevenly on the skin. These are known as Melanocytes and these cells give pigment its color.
If you’re someone who feels comfortable with moles on their face or body, then this article is probably not for you. However, for those who have moles that do no justice to their face or body, you’re in the right place.
Here are the five super easy and painless ways to get rid of moles in the comfort of your home!
#1. Why People Remove Moles
Moles are something that’s very common to all of us. It’s part of our skin and in a way it’s also a part of us. For most people, they get recognized by their moles like Cindy Crawford or Marilyn Monroe.
That being said, most moles are nothing to worry about unless they’ve started to bother you. If you don’t like the way it makes you look or if it’s irritating you by constantly getting rubbed against your clothes, you may want to remove moles at home.
However, there are moles that you have to remove because they could indicate a warning sign of skin cancer. Watch out for any differences in the mole’s size, shape or color.
If you have noticed changes, schedule an appointment with a dermatologist and get it checked out ASAP!
#2. Ah… Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera – it’s the best gift nature has given us and some people have no idea how useful it can be. From helping with sunburnt skin, getting rid of dandruff, acne and now to removing moles.
To start off, clean the area around the mole and rub some aloe vera gel on the mole. After it dries, clean the mole and apply bandages that have aloe vera on it on the mole. The key is to do this every day. Reapply the aloe vera on the mole and you’ll start to see some changes within two weeks.
Also remember to never touch the mole you’re getting rid of or interfere with the process in any way. You’ll end up with scars which might be difficult to remove.
Even though this is a slow process, it’s definitely the safest. Just follow the process properly and your mole should be gone.
#3. The Infamous Use of Garlic
Garlic is another great way to remove moles at home. Since it burns the skin, it works perfectly well against acne and unwanted breakouts.
First you need to crush some garlic cloves and form them into a paste. Next, you need to protect your skin from the burning, so put on some petroleum jelly or use a masking tape.
Then, apply the paste on the mole and let it begin to dry. When it does begin to dry, put on an adhesive bandage over your mole with the garlic still on it.
You can choose to leave it overnight or keep it for 4 hours. It’s up to you.
However, you need to do this process daily, but the best part is you’ll start to see the results within a week. So, be patient and don’t interfere with the routine in any way.
#4. Apple Cider Vinegar to The Rescue
Of course, we wouldn’t leave out apple cider vinegar because it’s the most used ingredient that people use to get rid of unwanted moles. The Malic tartaric, which is the acid found in apple cider vinegar, can literally dissolve or remove moles from the skin.
Just clean the mole first and use a cotton pad to put some cider on to the mole. After a while, clean the mole and leave the pad you used to clean it on the mole for an hour.
Repeat this process for 1-2 weeks and you’ll start to see some drastic results and say goodbye to the ugly mole forever!
#5. Castor Oil and Baking Soda
Castor oil is another wonderful item you can use on your skin or hair to fight skin problems and to help hair grow faster. All you have to do is mix one tablespoon of castor oil with baking soda.
Next, apply the paste on the mole and leave it on overnight. You can wash it off the next morning. Seems easy enough to follow and less hassle to maintain.
However, it’s a slow process and it can take up to a month till you see any results at all, but it’s effective.
Finally, Pineapple Juice
You’ll notice that most skin creams use pineapple juice as an ingredient to the formula. This is because it’s known that pineapple juice can help to kill bacteria.
Rest assured, you can use it to get rid of moles and also make your skin look amazing at the same time. Firstly, mix pineapple juice with some sea salt to form a scrub.
After the mixture gets a scrubness to it, you can rub it on your mole and keep scrubbing for 10-15 minutes. This will help to remove the topmost layer of the mole you’re trying to remove.
Wash it off and repeat the process every day for a week to see results. Come to think of it, your own homemade pineapple scrub has a pretty good ring to it.
