Beyonce Knowles skin tags

Beyonce Knowles posted photos showing skin tags growing on her face and neck. The images were posted on the 37-year-old singer's personal website,

Skin tags are harmless skin growths, moles or soft warts that are usually found on the face, neck, chest, back and armpits. Skin tags are more common in women than men.

What Are Skin Tags?

A skin tag, or acrochordon, are harmless tumors that usually form in skin creases, such as on the face, neck and armpits. Skin tags in the armpits can be a sign of insulin resistance in menopausal women or women diagnosed with diabetes or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

What Causes Skin Tags?

Skin tags can be caused by friction from clothes rubbing against the skin. Studies show increased blood sugar is linked to an increased incidence in skin tags. Genetics (family link) can cause increased skin tags on the face. Age is also a factor in the growth of skin tags.

Can Skin Tags Cause Cancer?

Skin tags are not cancerous, but you should consult with your doctor if a skin tag is firm, changes shape or size, bleeds, or changes color. Be aware that some skin tags may grow larger as you age.

What is the Treatment for Skin Tags?

Skin tags are benign (harmless) so treatment is not necessary. Skin tags are easily removed if they become too unsightly. Skin tags should only be removed surgically if they are disturbing to the patient. Home remedies include tying off the skin tag stalk with dental floss and waiting for it to fall off.

    Mine are genetic and I love them. All my moles, freckles, and skin tags

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I get them from time to time and I just clip them off. It doesn't hurt me.

  • missmiami305

    I’ve developed more moles with age. My dermatologist said it’s normal. They are small and they still annoy me. Having them removed in 2019.

  • ShWa

    yep clip them off or I use H202 and they fall off after a while.

  • Mister Fantastic

    There are ointments and procedures where you can freeze them. I read also of apple cinder vinegar being used.

  • KcoolMuziq

    She looks like her Mother on this pic.

  • dontgetblocked

    I had mine lasered off. It took five minutes and my insurance paid for it. Not sure why she hasn't had this done.

  • dontgetblocked

    Don't clip. It could start bleeding and not stop. Dermatologist will zap them off and insurance pays for it.

  • Society Has Changed

    Had mine froze and insurance covered it. They came back years later, froze again! For those without insurance, silver duct tape will also work if they are not above surface level. Look it up!


    I embrace mines ?????

  • Sassie

    Don't look like hers are really sticking out like that....they seem more flat....

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    They look cute on her.

  • Coy little wink

    So called flaws make us unique...I embrace mine

  • jwoo250

    I have them all over just like her. I inherited from my mom. They popped up when I hit my 20s. Love my lil chocolate chips.

  • SpillyNillie

    I have a few and they don't bother me...her skin is glowing.

  • oshh16

    I call them my oracle moles
    (on my neck), and they are genetic.
    I knew I would have them when I got older.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I don't mind the few I have. They are on my shoulder. Hers are cute.

  • oshh16

    As do I..... my freckles, beauty marks and oracle moles.....

  • Yui

    My momma’s family gave me mine. Her’s (The Yonce) look fine to me.?

  • starryeyed

    My dermatologist said they are benign so I'm not worrying about mine. I do think they are beautiful on the face of an attractive woman.

  • starryeyed

    but if I wasnt as cute I would want to get rid of them

  • morenYAHdelsur

    My daughter’s dermatologist freaked tf out about her moles. It’s a genetic thing for us.

    A lot of ladies in my family get them as they get older. They’ve always been there, but definitely more pronounced as they’ve gotten older.

  • tia

    I get them on my neck. I've had them burnt/froze off and they grew right back.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Disqusting is getting everybody I see ?

  • Renee26

    Got em all over my face and body... Beauty marks. I'll keep them cause they're cute ?

  • Mz_Opinionated

    These moles are natural occurrences in African Americans as we age. Mine look just like any other black persons on this planet. They don't protrude out of my skin. They are a normal part of it. I just roll with it. Can't stay in your 20's your entire life-Shrugs...

  • Renee26

    Mine did too... When I was young and shallow I used to be ashamed to go out with my mom because hers were so big and plentiful. I know better now... My mom is still a beauty

  • Alextra Ballard

    I wonder dew they fall off or just go away? I had a some,looks like a few are no longer there

  • Renee26

    Clutches pearls thinking about ripping my face with duct tape ?

  • Trace da Ace

    I have small moles on my face and neck...I have 5 that go down the side of my eye....they are very little and I even had 2 of them "froze" off at the Dr office....needless to say..they came grandma had alot of moles on her face removed back 20-30 years ago....some came back but not does not bother me....cause they look like beauty marks.soooo.....

  • Kanyade

    my dermatologist removed a big one from my neck. it's growing back, so I'll have to get it frozen again.

  • Kanyade

    my dermatologist removed mine. it came back; but thankfully not with a vengeance. lol. it's common the women in my family have them.

  • Judge Mental Will

    I usedd to lay on my ex laps and he used to bust my invisible pimples off my face. One day I noticed my skin tags was gone. He said yea i got tired of them and removed them lol they wasn't even big, but they way my mom on was growing im glad he did it early. Some grow huge with age.

  • Renee26

    ? it didn't hurt??

  • Renee26

    Neither... They may grow bigger as time goes on. Maybe you pulled them off without noticing

  • MrsSpice1

    Beyonce skin tags are pretty!! And i love ppl with freckles too!! So jelly i dont have any freckles! But i love my beauty marks i mean moles! I love my imperfections!! Life is toooo short to care about not being flawless!! ?? get over it!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I think those are cute. But i guess trying to fake a happy marriage plus forgiveness with a camel takes its toll on you.

  • Yup, I said it

    Compound W will freeze them off. White people get warts, black people get skin tags. These things are normal but because of photoshop and filters we have forgotten that.

  • SweetTEE people get warts too

  • Judge Mental Will

    No thats what i said like damn. He said he didn't tell me he was doing it cause i would've been scared. they was real small.

  • Goldielocs

    These are called beauty marks!! Embrace them!!! Since when have they been called skin tags!

  • Society Has Changed

    Oh no love! You’re not gonna bound and gag with duct tape... ????. Just small pieces cut out with a hole punch or smaller.

  • Renee26

    Ok... I'm to scary to even try

  • Carrington

  • MythCalledLove

  • P3

  • Miss Thang

    I've shaved mine off. Minimal bleeding.

  • Reina1718

    I hate mine ?

  • Reina1718


  • Miss Thang

    skin tags are NOT beauty marks. Beauty marks do not protrude from the skin. Also, a person has a beauty mark their whole life, not just when they get old. Beauty marks are black. I know because I've had one on my cheek my entire life.

  • Miss Thang

    it's totally worth it. I only had 3 but I couldn't stand them. They're like pimples that you can't pop. So I shaved!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    LMBO! Throwback! I’m from Louisiana though LOL it’s a habit.

  • Malai

    Tie dental floss around it really tight and cut the excess strings off.. give it 3-4 days and it’ll fall off. I got rid of my skin tags that way.. I was amazed that it worked
