Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is something you have probably used before, just not for removing moles from your own body! A lot of people have had success when they use this properly, so it’s well worth trying out. If you want to learn how to remove your skin mole using ACV, this guide will give you all the information needed.
Before you use this home remedy, make sure your blemishes are non-cancerous. You can determine this by inspecting each mole yourself and looking out for red flags, or you can go to your dermatologist. Do not attempt to remove a mole that is cancerous, you should see a doctor in this case. If everything looks good, you will be ready to get started with the removal process.
Reasons to Consider Blemish Removal
- If you don’t like the way your body looks because there is a mole on it, removal can help out with confidence quite a bit. Once the entire mole is removed you won’t have to worry about people staring at it or seeing it when you take off your clothing. Removal is especially beneficial when it’s done for a large mole on the face. These can be bothersome for anyone, especially when they are in odd spots.
- A lot of people experience pain and irritation from moles that rub against things or get caught on clothing. If you are tired of having to get dressed a certain way or avoid certain piercings, removal can help.
- The feeling of a large mole is just uncomfortable to some people. Large moles can take up a lot of space on the skin and cause it to feel rough or bumpy.
How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar
If you’re ready to use this mole removal method, you will first need to grab your supplies. These include: apple cider vinegar, bandages, cotton balls and Vaseline. Once you have these, clean your skin and wipe it dry.
- Apply Vaseline to the skin that is around your mole so it’s fully covered. This actually prevents the acid in the vinegar from eating away at the skin you want to keep.
- Take your cotton ball and apply some apple cider vinegar on it.
- Place the vinegar soaked side on your mole and place a bandage over it so it stays in place. If you do this three times per day you should see results within a couple of weeks.
After a week most people notice that the mole starts to flake and dry up. This is normal, so don’t be alarmed if you see it for yourself. Let the mole naturally fall off and try not to rub or itch it. After the removal is done, there should be no scar or sign that the mole was there in the first place.
