For people who hate moles, etc.

I don't usually post much here because my CSP tends to be limited to a few intense areas (unfortunately they're all on my face), but my latest discovery is definitely worth sharing. I've had a few really annoying moles for as long as I can remember, and I think they contributed to the general skin loathing that I've always had too. I found a way to get rid of them, however!

If you have those moles that protrude a bit from your skin (raised or kind of an overgrown skin tag, doesn't matter which), you may be able to get rid of them with apple cider vinegar. Here are the instructions:

1. Rough up as much surface area of the target mole as you can stand. It's good to use an emery board for this. Don't make it bleed, but make it feel a bit raw.

2. Put vaseline or antibiotic cream (like Neosporin) around the mole on the normal skin.

3. Take a small piece of cotton ball just slightly larger than the mole, and dip it in apple cider vinegar.

4. Put the cotton ball piece on the mole and tape it firmly in place with a band-aid.

It's best to do this right before bed so you can leave it in place overnight. Some people like to apply the ACV more frequently, but all my moles needed was overnight for 3-5 nights. The mole will develop a scab at first, and then go blackish or whitish and harden. Eventually, it will wither to a small scab that you can just pull off. When it's at the very hard stage, don't try and rough it up or use any more ACV. At this stage I just applied Neosporin at night, and I kept applying it for a while after the mole came off. It's insane, but my 2 most-hated moles have vanished quite literally without a trace! Another formerly prominent one is barely a tiny bump, and you can't see it at all. The other two are just slightly reddish areas where the moles used to be. I was shocked by how well this worked, since most of those "cures" you read about online are just shams.

Anyway, I feel so much better now! The mole on my neck that was so obvious is gone, and the one in my armpit is too. :) I can go necklace-free if I choose, and now when I'm lifting weights in the gym or high-fiving someone, I'm not self-conscious. :) I hope this helps some of you who have skin issues similar to my own!
