How to Get Rid of Milia: 5 Ways
Milia are small, bump-like cysts found under the skin. They are usually 1 to 2 millimeters (mm) in size. They form when skin flakes or keratin, a protein, become trapped under the skin. Milia most often appear on the face, commonly around the eyelids and cheeks, though they can occur anywhere. However, there are a few things you can do to help speed up the healing process and prevent more milia from forming. 1. Don’t pick, poke, or try to remove them 2. Cleanse the area Make sure you’re washing your face with a gentle, paraben-free soap each day. Any soap that isn’t mild will strip your face of the oils it needs to stay balanced and healthy.After washing, pat your skin dry instead of letting it air dry. This will help prevent your skin from chafing or drying out. 3. Steam open your pores After cleansing, you may find it beneficial to steam open your pores to further remove irritants. One way to do this is to: Start by sitting in your bathroom with the shower running on a hot setting. The room will fill slowly with warm steam. Sit in the steam for 5 to 8 minutes. The steam will gently open up your pores, releasing skin flakes or other irritants that may be trapped underneath. After sitting in the steam, turn off the shower and wait a few minutes. Pat your face dry, and rinse with lukewarm water to wash away any irritants before you step out of the steamy room. 4. Opt for a light facial sunscreen You should already be wearing a sunscreen every day to protect the skin on your face from ultraviolet rays. An additional benefit of the right sunscreen can be a decrease in skin irritation that causes milia bumps. 5. Use a retinoid cream Use any product that contains retinol just once per day. Put it on when your face is scrubbed clean and dry. When using a retinoid cream, it’s essential to use a sunscreen daily. Retinoid creams make your skin more susceptible to skin damage caused by sun exposure.
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.

What are those tiny bumps? MILIA!
Our skin is quite complex, having various functions in order to maintain proper health. So many skin conditions can occur along the way, and some are more common than you may think. Milia affects more than 3 million people every year in the US (Mayo Clinic) causing many people to seek help from dermatologists and other resources. So, what is milia and how can we treat or prevent it? ☆What is it? Milia are small cysts that commonly occur on the face, but can also form on the body. The small, white cysts form due to keratin becoming trapped under the skin and clogging the pore. They are harmless, but can become quite the pest as they feel hard and often are seen in multiples throughout the face. It can happen to anyone of any age but is especially common in babies. ☆How to Treat and Prevent- Milia can present itself in adults due to skin damage or abrasion, as well as a build up of dead skin. Without the natural exfoliation process, a milia bump can form. In order to help prevent milia you want to ensure the skin is being exfoliated properly. Using a gentle AHA or BHA can keep the pores from clogging. This is also helpful for existing milia to rid of them faster! Two gentle options for all skin types: THE inkey LIST - Beta Hydroxy Acid CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum Milia can also form due to heavy or comedogenic creams. Coconut oil is an example of a pore clogging ingredient that can definitely cause milia if left sitting on the skin. When seen under the eyes, you may think the culprit is your daily eye cream. The skin around the eyes is very thin and sensitive. Ensure that you are also cleansing the area close to the eyes and keeping it clean. Most eye creams will not cause issues due to their special formulation, but opt for a lighter version if necessary. Treating milia is quite the tricky task. As an esthetician, I am trained in extracting all pimples and bumps on the skin. I can say that milia are quite difficult to get out correctly! Because there is no opening to the cyst, like a regular pimple would have, the extraction process requires creating a small opening to pop out the small cyst. This is best left to professionals! At home care requires daily cleansing and twice weekly exfoliation, and they can often come out on their own. As far as removal goes, put down the extractors and see a licensed esthetician or dermatologist to keep the skin protected. Have you ever experienced milia??🤔

Papaya enzymes be giving me ✨gLaSs sKiN✨🥺✌🏻
SKIN TYPE: Always dry and sensitive due to eczema, highly allergic to dust, pollen and some fragrances😔✌🏻. Around every 2 weeks or so I get eczema flare ups using Novasone (prescribed steroid ointment) to relieve it. GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm Personally, it’s a 3.75 out of 5 due to how pricey it is ($51AUD) and the main concern for people being that it leaves residue/oily film. It has its pros and cons but I think the pros outweigh the cons if you’re willing to spend for glowing, glass skin vibes. Glow Recipe claims to “Gently slough away dead skin... remove makeup, dirt and oil... softens the skin while delivering on hydration”, and sis is delivering. Eczema means a lot of dead skin and sebum build-up giving me a lot of milia bumps, especially the flaking skin from dry patches when you attempt to exfoliate while trying not to piss it off making it angry and inflamed; this for dry skin types was perfect as a gentle oil based cleanser. While I did try using this with light and medium heavy makeup on, I found that using a lot of product to remove heavier makeup left a film residue on the skin, with warm water rinsing not completely removing the feeling of something on my face. For this I use The ORCHID Skin - Cleansing Sponge ($5AUD) as a daily gentle physical exfoliant to remove the remaining residue/makeup. This combination of oil cleanser and facial sponge exfoliation surprisingly doesn’t irritate my eczema skin thus I use this daily cleanse once in the mornings and double cleansing at night. After 1 month of daily use I saw visible effects in which there was a decrease in bumps and pimples but it was a gradual change over continuous/consistent use. I take a small amount (the surface area of pinky nail) on each cheek and massage it in on my dampened face for ~1-2minutes then rinsing off and dried with a facial sponge. My skincare routine consists of: Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gelée Milk Cleanser & GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm Avène - Hydrance AQUA-GEL & Avène - Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream For anti-itching and soothing when the skin gets fucked LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Repairing Balm or Avène - Skin Recovery Cream (only lasts ~2months using daily hence 4stars). THE VERDICT: Defo will be repurchasing due to how effective this Papaya cleansing balm has been for my skin in gently exfoliating, not drying or irritating at all for an eczema-sensitive, acne-prone skin type as well as they say it is made without fragrance but it still smells faintly of papayas🥰. HOWEVER, this is fucking expensive, there’s deffo cheaper alternatives such asheimish - Heimish All Clean Balm orThen I met you - Living Cleansing Balm I’m still repurchasing tho😔✌🏻
