How to remove skin tags this summer

7th May 2014

Skin tags can become a nightmare, especially during the summer period. They’re small sized brown flaps of tissue, which are most likely to appear on the neck, underarms, eyelids, groin folds or under breasts. They’re quite unsightly and most people prefer to permanently remove them.

Below are a few tips on how you can remove your skin tags this summer.

Tip 1: Use apple cider vinegar for skin tag removal

This method of skin tag removal is very simple to follow. Add a drop of apple cider vinegar onto a cotton ball and then place this on the skin tag three times a day. Repeat this procedure a few times until skin tag has completely fallen off.

Tip 2: Apply tea tree oil on your skin tag

Try applying 1-3 drops of tea tree oil on the skin tag using a cotton bud. Try to repeat this procedure three times a day until the skin tag darkens and falls off.

If there are any signs of redness or irritation, then mix the tea tree oil with some water to cool the skin down. Applying a plaster over the skin tag after treating it with oil can also help you achieve faster results.
