How to Get Rid of Skin Tags Naturally
If your confidence or self-esteem has been affected by those tiny flaps of skin, then you’re probably wondering how to remove them quickly and safely? Unfortunately, many treatments contain chemicals. This may mean that they aren’t suitable for people who are sensitive to certain ingredients, but how to get rid of skin tags naturally?
The good news is that there are home remedies that claim to be able to remove skin tags from your face and body using nothing more than common ingredients found in your local supermarket. Not only that, but these kinds of remedies have no known side effects. This means that you can get on with your life without having to worry as much about the appearance of your skin.
What exactly causes skin tags, you might be wondering? It’s hard to say, as it varies from person to person, although a doctor will tell you that it is due to collagen and blood vessels accumulating in certain parts of your skin, especially around areas where the skin folds, creases, and rubs together. It’s also thought that obesity, pregnancy, and genetics are also factors. In most cases, there isn’t anything you can do to prevent skin tags from appearing.
It’s also worth noting that there are some excellent over-the-counter products for getting rid of skin tags. As an example, it’s possible to freeze skin tags so that the flow of oxygen is inhibited. You might also want to visit your doctor to see if they can remove the skin tag, although this is expensive and is not covered by medical insurance.

How to Get Rid of Skin Tags Naturally
For people who want to avoid spending money and, perhaps, don’t feel confident about using the best over the counter skin tag removal products, the safest way forward is to experiment with using natural ingredients. Obviously, some works a lot better than others.
Below are some of the different home remedies that you can use:
You might not believe it, but one natural solution being used to get rid of skin tags is a banana peel. Some people claim to have enjoyed success simply by placing the inside of the peel on their skin tag and then covering it with a gauze to hold in place and help keep it there overnight. Repeat this for about a week until the skin tag is ready to fall off. It’s not worked for us, but see how you get on.
Tea Tree Oil
Perhaps one of the most well-known and effective home remedies is tea tree oil for skin tags. Make sure that you buy a product that comes from Australia and is 100% pure. This gives you the best possible chance of a successful outcome.
So how do you use tea tree oil? The easiest way is to put a small amount of tea tree oil onto a cotton ball and then dab the skin tag. Repeat this 3 times a day until you start to see results. You may wish to cover the area with a band-aid, but it’s not essential. We’ve found that this method works well. We recommend it to you.
Did you know that lemon juice has strong antiseptic qualities? Fortunately, this is found in your kitchen and is easy to apply to your skin tags to dry them out. Just put some lemon juice on a cotton ball or cotton bud and then lightly dab the affected areas. That’s what we’re told, but it hasn’t worked for us.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Want to know how to get rid of skin tags naturally and with the least amount of hassle? Apple cider vinegar for skin tags has long been used. This is likely because it’s used for other skin-related conditions.
Use organic products, if you can, and make sure there are no additives or artificial ingredients. Once you have your apple cider vinegar, soak two tablespoons into a cotton ball and apply this directly. If this is too harsh, you can dilute slightly with some water.
Again, some people swear by this treatment, but we can’t find any medical proof that it works. It seems to help with warts, however.
A little-known natural remedy for skin tags is pineapple juice, and although it doesn’t work for everybody, it’s well worth giving it a go for yourself. Just buy a carton of pineapple juice and then apply it to your skin tags at various points throughout the day. Don’t rinse off the liquid, let it dry into your skin for maximum results. It didn’t help in any of our tests.
Aloe Vera Juice
You’ve no doubt heard of aloe vera juice in connection with losing weight, but did you hear that it’s meant to be a good remedy for the removal of skin tags?
The best way to use it is by massaging a small amount of juice onto the skin tag daily, typically doing it first thing in the morning and before you go to bed at night. Well, it made my skin nice and soft, but it didn’t remove any of my skin tags.
Many supermarkets now sell ginger, which gives you the perfect opportunity to give it a try for getting rid of skin tags. All you need to do is peel a small amount of ginger and then rub it on the skin tag, repeating the process 2 to 3 times a day for up to 2 weeks. And, as you’ll have probably guessed, this didn’t work for us either.
Hopefully, the above tips have answered your question on how to get rid of skin tags naturally. If you dedicate yourself to trying out at least three of these natural remedies over the next month, then you ‘may’ be pleasantly surprised by the results.
All of the ingredients listed above are affordable and widely available. The only method that worked well was Apothecary tea tree oil, so that’s the only natural remedy that we’re able to recommend to you.
