Every skin change, in color, texture or smell could be a potential health problem, and you need to act quickly to treat it. Pharmaceutical meds are available for use and treatment, but can sometimes act harshly and aggressively on the skin.
To protect yourself from skin irregularities and from chemical medications, there are a few homemade recipes that can get you a healthy and glowing skin in no time.
Below you will find some of the most effective home remedies for the most frequent skin diseases, which are both cheap and effective.
Moles occur on the skin but do not represent a serious health threat. When a mole begins to change in color or size, it may be a clear symptom of cancer.

Use a cotton ball soaked in apple cider vinegar and apply directly on the mole. Bandage the area and leave the ACV to act for eight hours. Repeat until mole begins to darken and falls off.
