Plenty of people accept their moles and even embrace them, but others feel that moles undermine their self-esteem. If you have a raised mole that grows hair, you may be particularly keen to get rid of it! While risk of skin cancer means that you should always get your doctor’s opinion about a mole that looks unusual or seems to be changing, the majority of moles are a mere annoyance. If you want to send them packing, try these ten smart home remedies.
1. Apple cider vinegar
Let’s start with apple cider vinegar, which seems to be useful for treating almost all problems! It contains potent acids (e.g. tartaric acid) that can purportedly dissolve your troublesome mole. Apply the apple cider vinegar sparingly—just a little dab with a cotton ball is enough—and do this on a daily basis until the mole disappears. To protect the surrounding skin from irritation, apply some petroleum jelly around the mole.
