Many times, moles on the face can be removed using home remedies instead of using conventional methods. Home remedies to remove moles on the face range from using apple cider vinegar to garlic. With a little bit of diligence and patience, small moles can easily be removed using safe, proven home remedy methods.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a popular home remedy to treat moles on the face. Apply apple cider vinegar to the mole right before retiring for the night, by saturating a cotton pad with apple cider vinegar, put over the mole and cover with a bandage. Protect the skin directly around the mole with petroleum jelly, so the apple cider vinegar will only affect the mole itself.
Leave the apple cider vinegar soaked cotton pad on over night. Remove the cotton pad and bandage in the morning and continue to dab some apple cider vinegar on the mole about 4-5 times during the day. Repeat this procedure for between 5-7 to see results. The mole should begin to darken and start to flake off for easy removal.
Garlic can be used in a similar way like apple cider vinegar to treat and remove moles on the face. Use caution as excessive use of garlic can cause burning of the skin surrounding the mole.
Chop up a couple of peeled garlic cloves and place in a small bowl. With a spoon or pestle, mash up the cloves until they start to release juices into the bowl. Put this garlic juice onto a cotton pad and apply directly to the mole. Place a bandage over the cotton pad and leave on for ten minutes. Repeat this procedure daily for 3-4 days to see results. Again, the facial mole should begin to darken, and start to flake off completely, revealing smooth pink skin underneath.
Iodine is another home remedy that is useful in eliminating moles from the face. Apply the iodine to the facial mole with a cotton ball 2 to 3 times a day. Make sure the area surrounding the mole is protected with petroleum jelly. Eventually after repeating this treatment for about one week, the skin on the mole will begin to darken, flake and gently fall away.
As with any home remedy that is used to treat facial moles, take care to prevent burning or irritation of the skin. Apply petroleum jelly to the skin area surrounding the mole for extra protection. If you experience burning of the skin, discontinue your home remedy program and seek medical attention.
