Improving My Skin

After I started working full time, I realized that the stress wasn't doing nice things to my skin. Instead of my typical glowing appearance, I was left with splotchy, uncomfortable, pimple-ridden skin. I didn't like how it looked or felt, which is why I decided to see about visiting a dermatologist. It was amazing to see how well he cared for me after I went. He felt my skin, gave me some advice on daily cleaning, and talked with me about which medications might help. I was absolutely blown away with how much of an improvement he helped me to achieve. This blog is all about the wonders of modern day dermatology.

Wart Off! 2 Inexpensive & Natural Options To Remove Nasty Warts

Phillip Lucas

Warts are nothing more than a home for specific types of viruses that have made your skin their habitat, but it is a dwelling that is quite unsightly. There are a few natural options for you to try that your dermatologist can suggest. But, there are also two natural options that you can consider that are also quite inexpensive.

1. The Clay Solution

Warts are the result of a virus infection within an opening in your skin such as a cut that result in a single or cluster-like white formation atop of your skin. The reason that you can turn to bentonite clay--a special type of dirt filled with minerals like calcium--is because of the strong ion exchange reaction that it has when combined with water or apple cider vinegar. This exchange makes bentonite clay attract toxins, positive ions, and those strands of viruses causing the wart.

Follow the steps below to use bentonite clay to remove the wart:

  1. Combine 1 tablespoon of bentonite clay with ¼ a tablespoon of water.
  2. Add more water or bentonite clay until you achieved a mud-like consistency.
  3. Place this mixture on the wart and tape it down.
  4. Do this twice a day until the wart falls off.

Be sure to ask your dermatologist about using this option if you are using any other type of medications, as they may conflict. You can purchase bentonite clay, which is very inexpensive, online or in your local health food store.

2. The Mashed Garlic Option

Garlic has been known to help improve your immune system as well as your circulatory system, but it can also do wonders for your wart-removing goals. The secret is that garlic contains several antiviral and antibacterial properties like allicin or selenium. These same ingredients could be the reason why garlic was able to get rid of warts in just two weeks after topical application twice a day.

You can use garlic extract, which you can purchase in your local health food store or online. Or you can simply use a mortar and pestle or food processor to mash up one clove of garlic to place over the wart. Make sure that you remember to cover the garlic with a piece of tape to secure it over the wart. Remember that using a little clove of garlic is inexpensive, but you will pay a little more for the extract should you choose that option.

As you can see, you can get rid of warts through natural and cheap methods. However, if you need more help, contact a professional, like those at Dermatology Surgery Center.
