Ever wondered what that annoying little molish thing that creeps up on random parts of your body at various time is? Yes those little devils are known as skin tags.
Skin tags, which are refered to as acrochordon in medical terminology are small flaps of skin that come up where friction is caused.
Though they are harmless and sometimes fall off on their own but they can be annoying. You can get them removed medically but why waste money when you have all the remedies at home . Nature indeed is priceless.
These pesky little skin tags are sore to the eyes and mar your natural beauty. There are some perfectly safe and natural ways to get rid of them.
Soak a cotton ball into this oil and apply it on your skin, keep it overnight.
Make a paste out of it by mixing it with baking soda, it will sting a little. Repeat it a few times.
Lemons are probably god's gift to skincare, use lemon juice on affected area and leave it overnight. Keep repeating until they fade off.
Apply a small dab of vinegar on the cotton ball on the skin tag. After you apply vinegar, it may sting. But hey, the end results will be worth it!
Cut the banana peel into small pieces. Put it against those tags and secure them overnight, keep repeating it until they eventually fall out.
Use soaked onion-salt mixture on the affected area or skin tag and cover it. Leave it overnight. Rinse if off in the morning with warm water. Continue this process every night for a week.
Apply a mixture of four to six drops of coconut oil and two to three drops of oregano oil directly onto your skin tag three times a day. This should dry out the skin tag so that it falls off on its own.
Apply pineapple juice on to it, it will fall of gradually.
