How to reduce milia effectively? My HG cleanser!
How to reduce milia effectively? My HG cleanser!
Months ago, I found some tiny but annoying white bumps under my eyes. My friends told me they are milia. I was confused and I hoped to get rid of it immediately. So I did some research on the internet. I read some articles  Quick overview of milia🔍 MILIA are small white to yellow colored cysts formed when skin flakes or keratin get trapped under the skin. Some people may call them “milk spots.“ They occur commonly around the eyes and on cheeks but can appear anywhere. They tend to occur as a result of skin damage (like sun damage) or excessive use of harsh products on the skin. Milia VS Pimples At first, I regarded these milia as pimples. But my friend told me they were different! Attempting to pop them may cause further inflammation and scarring. The pores need to clear out the built-up keratin for the milia to go away. So, AVOID picking or poking them! How Do I Get Rid Of Milia? They usually go on their own. So like I have said before, NEVER picking or poking them to avoid scarring and infection. If you want to get rid of it quickly, you can try some chemical peels. Use a retinoid cream or AHAs and BHAs at night to reduce their occurrence. I have sensitive and acne-prone skin so I need a gentle cleanser to exfoliate my skin. I have seen many reviews saying good things about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser. I included it in my PM routine and magically my milia got better. I also used Elemis PAPAYA ENZYME PEEL. I heard that it's a great option for beginners who are nervous of aggressive formulas. I have been using these products for about 5 weeks.No redness, no stinging, just smooth skin!  A few more TIPs👇 Avoid using oil-based creams Avoid scrubbing the face too often CCW! If you have experienced the same things like me, you can comment and I will see what I can do.
