The skin is our major covering as it serves as cover for our different organs and tissues, without it we would probably look so weird. Despite this fact a great number of us handle this part of our lives with a huge degree of levity, more like we expect the skin to take care of itself. The skin is made up of three layers and when we have a cut, we most likely will cut through the three.

Warts and moles appear on the outer part of the skin and so they are easily noticeable, we should be thankful for that. They really do not have any health significance as they do not cause any harm to us other than make our skin lose attractiveness and make us feel like covering the affected areas. Let us quickly take a look at the three major functions of the skin before going ahead with wart and mole removal.

  1. The skin acts a protection from microorganisms, radiation, chemicals, elements, pressure and external impact.
  2. The skin helps to regulate body temperature, fluid balance and circulation, metabolism and vitamin D synthesis.
  3. It is a major sense organ which helps us to know alteration in temperature, pressure and helps us know when we are in pain.

Natural remedies

It is usually recommended to use natural remedies instead of the artificial ones, they are safer and have less side effects (if any at all).

For warts:

  1. You can make use of fresh garlic. Crush a clove of garlic, rub it over the wart and leave on 30 minutes. Wash off thoroughly, repeat twice each day till the wart falls off.
  2. Using vitamin C, crush it and mix with a little water. Rub over the wart and protect with a bandage.

For moles:

  1. Mix castor oil with a little baking soda and rub over the mole. Allow to dry and leave for a few hours. Do this twice daily for a month for best results.
  2. Pineapple juice, this will lighten the skin of the mole instead of removing it. Simply soak a cotton ball in some apple juice and dab over the mole.
