Using Vegetables To Naturally Remove Skin Tags?
We’ve mentioned previously that, depending on the size and length of time you have had a skin tag, will determine how well/fast a natural remedy will work. Many of these require that you leave them on overnight and keep at it for a couple of weeks.
This is where many give up before seeing the results. If you are looking for a quick way to naturally remove skin tags, these may not fit the bill for you.
Onions are known to have phytonutrients and antioxidants that help in detoxifying the skin and body. They have been used to prevent skin tags, as well as remove them. Take one onion and mince it, then add a dash of salt. Leave this mixture to sit overnight and then, using cheesecloth, strain the mixture to get to the juice.
It is recommended that you apply the juice at night and cover the skin tag with a bandage, then leave it sit overnight. Wash the area in the morning with warm water and repeat this every evening. Results should be seen in 10 to 12 days. The important part to remember is to prepare another salt and onion mixture at night, so that you have more for the next morning to strain.
Dandelion Stem Juice
We see dandelions everywhere, so this remedy is pretty much free. Dandelions are known for their ability to re-balance hormones, detoxify our skin and body, and promote the production of collagen. Take the stem of a dandelion and squeeze it until a white liquid comes out. You can use the stem as an applicator and apply this to the skin tag.
Allow it to completely dry on the tag. Use this remedy three times per day (a word of caution: if you have allergies to daisies, ragweed, marigolds or chrysanthemums you may also be allergic to dandelions)
Cauliflower Juice Mix
Cauliflower has magnesium, minerals, Vitamins A, B and C, calcium and antioxidants, all of which help to prevent infections and keeps the skin looking healthy. We’ll be using some additional ingredients to make this juice. Cut one peeled potato into several chunks and the put it in a blender with 1 cup of cauliflower pieces and 2 cloves of garlic.
Add a bit of water and blend until you get a smooth consistency. Apply this mixture to the skin tag, use a bandage to cover and then leave it overnight. Wash the skin tag with warm water in the morning and repeat this each night. Results should be seen within a few days.
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E is known for its antioxidants. It helps protect the skin and reduced the appearance of scars, blemishes and stretch marks. It works to moisturize, smooth and heal the skin while also clearing toxins and impurities that are the cause of skin tags from our skin.
You can apply a thin layer of Vitamin E oil to the skin tag, cover it with a bandage and let it sit. This can be repeated 2 times a day, with results being seen in a few days time.
Ginger has been long known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, both of which assist in clearing away skin tags. Ginger has been used to prevent and heal all types of blemishes. You can a piece of fresh ginger root onto the skin tag 3 times per day, for about 5 minutes.
Another option is to grate the ginger and apply that to the skin tag. Cover it and leave it overnight, then wash the area with warm water upon rising. A ginger paste can be used as well, and is probably easier to apply. Lastly, the juice of ginger root can be applied to skin tags.
The Vitamin C found in potatoes are said to help get rid of skin tags without leaving any scars behind in the process. You can take a thin slice of potato and place it over the skin tag, cover it with a bandage and let it sit for about 2 hours.
Rinse when done and repeat this every day. In 2 weeks time you should see some results.
Bloodroot works on skin tags by preventing circulation and starving the tag. Mix some powder of blood root with enough water until you get a firm paste. Apply this to the skin tag and cover it, leaving it for two hours before taking off the bandage and rinsing. This can be repeated twice a day for 3 days.
Overusing this remedy can harm the skin and should only be used externally. This remedy should not be used in conjunction with any other remedies. Bloodroot should never be applied to skin tags on the eyelids, nose, genitals or lips.
Lastly, do not use bloodroot on children or if you are pregnant or nursing.
In summary, there are many options to naturally remove skin tags. The thing to remember is that these tend to take more time than conventional remedies, so you will need to have a bit of patience.
