Skin problems like warts, dark spots, blackheads and skin tags are changes in color or texture of the skin. These changes can happen due to inflammation, infection or allergic reactions anywhere on the body.
Here are some remedies for these skin problems:
These little knocks on the skin are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Usually they are treated with acid or freezing. If mainstream methods or treatments involving strange chemicals have not worked for you, try some of these easy and effective home remedies instead. These natural remedies have a proven track record, however, none of them are overnight cures. They work far faster than the months or years it takes a wart to disappear on its own, if it ever disappears. Nearly a quarter of warts go away on their own within six months, but about a third still linger around two years after they first appear. Warts can be especially stubborn in children, whose immune systems are still developing.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Another natural wart remover is the Apple Cider Vinegar. Same as other natural treatments, you can apply Apple Cider Vinegar in the evening. Just soak a cotton ball in Apple Cider Vinegar, put in on the wart and wrap with a bandage. You can leave overnight or for 24 hours, but you should replace it every day. You will see how wart will slowly shrivel up and disappear.
To remove warts you should mash some garlic juice and then apply on wart and cover with a band aid. Do this twice a day, until wart disappears.
This treatment is actually backed by science. Place a small piece of duct tape completely over the wart continually for 6 days, replacing the tape as needed. After 6 days, soak the wart in water and then rub it with an emery board or pumice stone. The next morning, apply fresh duct tape for another 6 days, and continue for two months or until the wart disappears.
Another method that has also been published in medical journals is applying the inside of a banana peel to the wart. Many have had success with simply rubbing the inner surface of the banana peel over the wart a few times a day. An even more effective technique is to press the inside of the peel over the wart and tape it in place at night before bed. Remove it in the morning, and wash the area. Repeat this procedure nightly until the wart begins to soften, about a week, but the wart should be gone within a few weeks to a month.
Pure Raw Honey
Organic honey is the healthiest way to treat the warts. Just put some honey on the wart and wrap a piece of cloth around it. Leave it for 24 hours.
Skin tags usually appear around the neck, upper chest, underarms and eyelids. Here are some natural remedies that you can use at home.

This is a slow process but is one of the safest ways to remove the skin tags around eyes. You need to soak cotton ball with water and add some tea tree oil drops. Put the cotton ball on the skin tag and cover it with a bandage. Repeat this process 2-3 times a day.
2. Baking soda and castor oil
This combination is an amazing and effective method to remove the skin tags. All you need to do is to mix castor oil and baking soda to get a paste and apply it on the skin tag. Cover with bandage. If make extra paste just store it in the fridge.
3. Apple cider vinegar
Simply soak the cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and put it on the skin tag. After few day, your skin tag will change color to dark and it will fell off.
Moles are harmless, posing no health concerns, but could be problematic from an aesthetic point of view as many people find them unattractive. Medically known as melanocytic nevi, moles are black, brown, or flesh-colored spots or patches on the skin that form due to the collection of melanocytes. Melanocytes are cells that produce pigment, the coloring substance also called melanin.
Most moles appear by the age of 20 or 30. They can be flat or raised, rough or smooth, with or without hair. Factors like genetics, hormonal fluctuations and sun exposure may affect the number and appearance. Some moles will fade and disappear as a person ages, but not all and often not when people are most concerned with how they look. Some simple home remedies can help you get rid of unsightly moles.
Before trying the home remedies though, it is important to inspect your mole for abnormal characteristics such as asymmetry of the border, color, or diameter. If you notice any of these issues or the mole is changing in shape or color without any treatment, get it checked by a dermatologist to rule out the possibility of it being cancerous. Do not attempt to treat cancerous moles on your own.
Crush a fresh garlic glove and place it on the mole.
Secure it with a bandage and leave it on overnight, or at least for four hours.
Do this daily for a few days. The mole will then fall off naturally. This method is said to give positive results with merely five days of daily application.
Castor oil helps remove warts, moles, and skin tags, because it helps dissolve and eliminate unusual growths. This method is also not likely to leave scars. However, it tends to take a lot of time as it gets rid of moles one layer at a time. Mix a pinch of baking soda and a few drops of castor oil. You can also mix in ground aspirin. Gently rub the mixture on your mole. Leave it on for a few hours until it dries naturally.
Do this twice daily for about one month.
If you do not have baking soda, you can use castor oil alone.
