Let’s Be Real, How You Look Matters A Lot
All of us have been reading about self-accepting quotes, but somewhere down there, we actually know that the first impression depends on how we look. It’s pretty natural for all of us to want to look good and have clear and glowing skin. But the question is, is it so easy to have a clean, radiant face without skin tags and moles? It isn’t, but there are a few essential oils for skin tags. Essential oils can help you get rid of skin tags without going through any kind of chemical treatment or any other harmful method.
What Are Skin Tags?
It’s vital for you to know what skin tags are before you try to get rid of them. Skin tags is a condition in which your skin develops a small soft benign growth. These soft skin growths are usually harmless, and the majority of them non-cancerous. Skin tags are clinically termed acrochordon. They are small soft skin growths that hang on your skin; they can be of different sizes and colours. They usually occur on the neck, armpits and under the breast area. Skin tags typically occur due to a change in hormonal level. They also occur when your skin rubs against itself. Skin tags appear in the folds of your skin. It is a prevalent skin condition amongst both male and female. Pregnant women might develop skin tags as a result of the change in hormonal levels.
Skin tags are made up of losing collagen fibres and blood vessels.
When Can Skin Tags Be A Problem?
Skin tags generally do not cause any kind of pain or discomfort to you and do not require surgical removal in most cases. Still, these can be the reason behind your low self-confidence and issues with your looks. They can also be a problem when you are wearing jewellery. Skin tags removal is considered to be cosmetic surgery, and it is available to patients only if the skin tag is greatly affecting you mentally or physically.
Essential Oils For Skin Tags
Treating skin tags can be done through surgical methods or chemical treatments but this is generally considered cosmetic surgery so your health insurance will probably not cover this. You will obviously pay for the removal surgery yourself. Some oils can help you get rid of skin tags without going through any harmful or surgical method. We have listed down some of them:
Lavender oil is known for soothing and cleaning your skin from within, but it might also help remove all the skin tags present on your face. You need to make a spritz of lavender oil and then spray it on your face; it will help in reducing the inflammation and might also help in drying the skin tag off. As soon as the skin tag is dried, it will fall off on its own. This process might need several weeks to see results although it is not guaranteed.
Rosemary Essential Oil:
Rosemary oil is extracted from rosemary leaves through steam distillation. It contains antibacterial and antifungal properties, which can help your skin to get rid of all the bacterial and fungal infections that you have on your face. Mix rosemary oil with aloe vera gel and apply it on your skin tag as it helps in cooling the hot, irritated skin area on your face. You can also blend rosemary oil with other essential oils for skin tags.
Oregano Essential Oil:
Oregano is the only oil that might actually help you in getting rid of skin tags quickly. However, you should use it with caution as it is very powerful. Take 3 tablespoons of raw shea butter and let it melt. Add a few drops of oregano oil to it and let it set. Use a clean hand to take out the ointment and then apply it to the affected area.
Tea Tree Oil:
Tea tree oil is one of the most effective oils for keeping your skin safe from bacteria, microbes and germs; it can also help keep away the skin tags. It helps in treating by making them dry out quickly. This helps the skin tag drop off. Put some tea tree oil on a cotton ball and tap it on the affected area.
Another beneficial treatment for your skin tags is lemon essential oil. It helps remove excess water and oil present in your skin which might help the skin tags in drying and falling off on their own without having any kind of surgeries. Mix 6-8 drops of lemon oil with coconut oil and apply some of the mix on your skin tag, and leave it overnight. Make sure you do not wear it in sunlight as it is photosensitive.
Frankincense Essential oil:
This oil has anti-inflammatory properties, and it is known to dry out the skin tags and results in them falling out faster. Take one drop of Frankincense essential oil on your fingertip and gently apply it to your skin tag. Make sure you apply Vaseline on the healthy skin to get burned by the essential oil. Apply it twice a day until the skin tags fall off.
Sweet Basil Oil:
Basil oil is known to have medicinal properties, just like rosemary and oregano oil. It is known to have antiseptic properties, and it helps in protecting your skin from skin tags. Mix 1 tablespoon of basil castor oil with 7 drops of basil oil and apply it to the skin tags.
There are many ways you can use essential oils for skin treatments. The oils mentioned above can be very effective in treating skin blemishes. They are better than any surgical method as they generally don’t have any kind of side effects on your skin and they are great for those who prefer natural and/or homemade treatment options.
