Do you have whiteheads or little white bumps on your skin that just won’t let up, no matter how hard you squeeze? That’s because although they may look it, these aren’t whiteheads!
Often tiny (but very, very annoying), these pesky little bumps are known as Milia. They appear on the surface of the skin, and occur when dead skin cells and keratin become trapped beneath the skin.
The good news is they are not related to any kind of infection, and are simply a pocket of normal skin. The bad news is you cannot treat them like you would acne or whiteheads, as you could cause further irritation!
HOW TO GET RID OF MILIA
1 – Exfoliation: Exfoliation allows the trapped skin and keratin to be removed, and clear up most of your milia over time.
2- Steam: A hot steam treatment for your face can do wonders, as it also releases anything trapped beneath the surface. If you don’t have a facial steamer, you can always spend some time in your bathroom with the door closed and a hot steamy shower running.
3 – Rose water and Manuka Honey: These two combinations can do WONDERS for your face.Rose water and Manuka Honey both have anti-inflammatory properties that can clear up more than just pesky little milia on the surface of your skin.
