Skin tags are skin growths that are tiny and benign and they usually appear on the eyelids, neck, armpits, and under the breasts. Though they are not dangerous, they make the skin look less attractive. But, do not worry, these 5 powerful home remedies can be of help.
How to Prepare the Remedies
Apple cider vinegar
First, cleanse the skin and then dip one cotton ball into the vinegar and squeeze out the surplus. Then, start massaging the affected areas with the ball and leave it to dry naturally. Repeat the procedure 3 times per day. In few days, the tag will become brown, dry off, and eventually fall out.
Baking soda and castor oil
Mix ½ tsp of castor oil and a tsp of baking soda to get a fine paste. Apply it onto the tags and leave it on for half an hour and then rinse the area with lukewarm water. Do this 3 times per day and in 10 days or so, the skin tags will be gone.
Tea tree oil and cold water
Mix 4 tsp of cold water and 3 drops of tea tree oil and then use a cotton ball to apply it onto the skin tag by gently massaging it, as well as the area around it, and leave it to dry naturally. Repeat the same method for 3 times per day, for a period of 30 days or so.
Using nail polish to remove skin tags is very easy, all you need is to cover the skin tag with it, leave it to dry and then repeat it for at least a few days so you can completely remove the skin tags.
Squeeze some fresh lemon juice onto a cotton ball and apply it gently onto the skin tags and do not wash it off; just leave it to dry naturally.
