Mind trying?


Moles are harmless and they can affect anyone on any part of their body. While they may not even be painful, some people are concerned about them especially if they are on the face.

They can be genetic and can also result from spending too much time in the sun. Since getting medical treatment for moles can be expensive, some people opt for home remedies. Below are a few home remedies that people use to get rid of moles:

1. Garlic


Crush the garlic and apply the juice on the affected area using cotton wool. Leave it for four hours then wash if off. Repeat this procedure daily for results. The antimicrobial properties of garlic is what is said to make it work. If the garlic stings, wash off immediately.

2. Potatoes

They are said to have bleaching effects. Cut a peeled potato into two and rub it on the mole. Although this method may not work immediately, it may help fade the mole with time.

3. Honey


Honey has so many benefits to your body and skin as well. The fact that it has anti-inflammatory features and antioxidants makes it good for clearing the moles. Just apply it directly and once it’s dry, wash off.

4. Banana peels

Banana peels are said to contain enzymes that help in mole removal. They are also a natural moisturizer which protects the skin from losing important oils.

5. Apple cider vinegar


Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar then rub it on the mole. Leave it on the skin for up to eight hours. It’s said to work wonders.
