How to remove what’s been there for ages? How to remove what you have had since you were born? Talking about birthmark; nothing else! Well, sometimes these birthmarks take the form of really cool shapes on really secure regions, whereas sometimes, they appear in drastically hideous shapes and in a totally insecure, open to public, region.
So in these latter cases, individuals try to find ways to remove the birthmarks. While there are ways to remove the birthmark surgically, natural way is much better and gives almost as good a result.
How To Remove Birthmarks Naturally
There are a few things that you should know before jumping on to a natural treatment. Natural treatment for birthmark removal takes time; the marks are very tough to remove and thus the patient has to have patience and persistence for the treatment to work. It is also recommended that you consult a dermatologist and a doctor and get the particular area checked, before starting the treatment. You can also ask them for any advice on natural treatment for the condition.
This is the most common treatment for lightening and fading the birthmarks out. It is also the most readily available natural medicine available at our homes. Prepare half a cup of lemon juice and pour the same in a bowl. Bring out the cotton balls and dip one in the solution. Now, apply the cotton over the birthmark, in a circular motion and let the juice stay over for around 15 minutes.
After the limit’s over, wash the area with warm water and pat dry with a towel. For best results, repeat the process 3 times a day, daily and for four weeks/ a month. Lemon juice is a natural bleaching agent so it works to lighten the darker tone to a normal one.
Olive oil does kind of the opposite of what Lemon juice does. It is a kind of natural moisturizer and thus helps in ‘restoring’ the damaged cells of your birthmark. This helps to soften the texture of the area and thus, in the long run, helps in reducing the colored birthmarks. Take olive oil in a small bowl and dip one or more numbers of cotton balls in the oil. All you have to do now is rub the cotton ball over the surface of the birthmark, in circular motion, for five minutes.
You do not have to keep the lotion over the spot. After you are done applying the oil, rinse the area with warm water. Dry the spot by patting with a towel. For best results, apply four times daily and for about 6 weeks.
Hopefully, these natural ways of birthmark removal will do just fine. It might take more time than mentioned (depending on a lot of things) but be patient, you’re going to be just fine. If though, the marks don’t seem to go and you are quite adamant that you want them gone, you might go for the other un-natural ways like laser therapy, surgery, steroids, etc. But it is not recommended.
