Skin moles are a very natural occurrence that, in reality, have little reason to hide underneath aesthetic masks. Unfortunately, society, in its superficial tendencies, has come to view skin moles as a negative aspect of physical appearance. Although some are more insecure in having moles than others, for those trying to hide their appearance, there are many ways to do so. Among the most common are makeup, clothing, or removal of moles.
Moles are basically a collection of semi-irregular skin cells differing in color from others on the body. Other than their aesthetically compromising look, moles can also have serious health implications. Sometimes, they can be a sign of malignant cancer, and if allowed to metastasize or spread, can potentially be deadly. Most doctors and dermatologists recommend regular checkups to help keep potential health problems from developing.
Depending on location, clothing may be the best way to cover up moles. Not only is this cheap, but clothes can also appear natural and unintentional. A few moles on an arm, for example, may be hidden with a strategic sleeve here or a bracelet there. Garnering a wardrobe that can hide skin moles can be an effective tool for an insecure person.
If clothes don't seem like a viable option, or if a mole is in an unclothed area, makeup can do the trick. Applying makeup can be cumbersome, time-consuming, and expensive; therefore, most people do not opt to go this route. Changing your complexion to help moles blend in is very effective but comes at the cost of potential skin damage. If you have moles, you are probably fair skinned and susceptible to skin cancer, so try to avoid this otherwise appealing method of covering up skin moles.
One of the best options for hiding skin moles is to have them removed altogether. Mole removal is permanent, and not only does this process remove the unwanted growth from sight, but it also decreases the chance of any type of cancer existing on that particular mole. The only side effects of this process are medical costs and potential scarring. Scars can often be more disfiguring than the original mark, so examine all options before agreeing to removal.
Moles can be dangerous and, in some opinions, unattractive. If you are the type of person sensitive to the looks of your moles, try one of these options for covering them up. The best cover up of all, however, may be to become comfortable in your own skin and stop the mental labor of worrying about looks.
