Getting Rid Of Moles Is Easier Than You Think

Moles are spots made ​​of an abnormally large collection of pigment cells, called melanocytes, in the deeper layer of your skin. Scientifically known as melanocytic nevus, moles are generally round shaped and dark colored. Each mole has its own growth pattern and can materialize in different sizes and colors, including red, pink, brown and black. Some moles are present at birth, but most develop spontaneously or as a result of exposure to sunlight.

Everyone has at least a few moles on their skin. Moles are usually not dangerous, but can turn cancerous if not treated properly (eg excessive sun damage). They start appearing when we are toddlers and continue to appear for the first 20 years of life. You can get rid of small moles either surgically or naturally. Surgical methods for getting rid of moles involve laser treatments, removing with a scalpel etc. These methods are expensive and painful. You don’t need to depend on surgical treatments when you have plenty of natural home remedies right in front of you.

      This is so intuitive and interesting. I do have a mole on my back and two on my waist. Small, circular and red. I might give this a try this summer with one of those remedies like onion or garlic.
