Our skin is composed of three layers, epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. The skin actually is the largest organ in both weight and size and it is responsible for:
- a) Skin protection from
– External pressure and impacts
– Elements like snow, rain, and even the sun
– Chemicals, micro-organisms, and radiation
- b) Regulating some functions such as:
– Synthesis of Vitamin D and metabolism
– Body temperature, fluid balance, and peripheral circulation
- c) Skin senses
– Cold and Hot temperatures
– Pain and Pressure
Even the skin is protecting from external influences it can suffer from cuts and wounds that can affect all three layers of skin.
The other common skin problems that occur are spot warts, blackheads, moles, skin tags, and age spots and they can grow on the layer of skin we can see.
The removal of all those skin problems is possible in two ways – by using conventional or natural methods.
- A) Conventional Removal Methods
In case of too much pain or just the lack of the time, your doctor can take care of those warts, blackheads, skin tags or any other problems.
Here are a few options that can be chosen:
– Cryotherapy – using of extreme cold to freeze temperature, before removing e.g. warts Laser surgery – using lasers to “burn” (e.g., skin tags).
– Topically – retinoid cream provide a less extreme but longer solution
- B) All-Natural Remedies
Warts: Top 2 Natural Remedies
Warts are small growths found most commonly in hands and feet. They are noncancerous and can develop and spread among people from indirect or direct contact.
1) Fresh Garlic
Apply on the wart crushed clove of garlic and cover it up with a bandage. Leave it to act up to thirty minutes, then thoroughly wash the wart. This treatment should be repeated twice daily for at least one week. The wart blisters and falls off very soon.
2) Vitamin C
Create a paste mixing the powder of a few crushed vitamin C tablets in a dish with less than a teaspoon of water. Rub it over your wart and protect it with a bandage. It may cause a burning sensation and quickly go away, due to the vitamin’s high acidity. Repeat it daily.
