“Mole”, as well as being the name for a small burrowing mammal, is the common name for a collection of dark pigment on the skin. This different pigment, even though it is not necessarily harmful or cancerous, can cause problems for the individual as it can be unsightly and can lead to low self esteem and self consciousness-particularly if the moles are on the face or other prominent positions.
If you are looking to banish any unwanted moles such as this, there are many ways you can do so without resorting to surgery which can have dangerous or uncomfortable side effects. Did you know that you can even take matters into your own hands, and use some surprising home remedies to rid yourself of these skin blemishes?
Here are three effective, proven and harmless ways of natural mole removal:

A well known household liquid, iodine is used as a disinfectant and also contains acetic acid. This strong smelling liquid is good at removing unsightly moles.

Because of the mild acetic acid content, this common kitchen ingredient is very effective at mole removal.
