Wondering how to get rid of milia that started around a month ago?
Fret not! A lot of Americans also developed cases of milia owing to excessive sun exposure during the summer. With holidays such as Halloween and Thanksgiving around the corner, as well as back-to-school blues for the young ones out there, having those tiny bumps on your face is inexcusable.
Let us guide you on how to eliminate milia just in time for autumn, and regain that fresh face immediately.
Things You May Not Know About Milia
You may be surprised at how much more there is to milia than just mere disfigurations on the skin. Here are less known facts about the condition:
- Milia are not bumps but cysts under the skin. They range from 1-2 millimeters in size.
- Milia, while common on the face, can appear almost anywhere. They often appear around the eyelids and cheeks.
- Milia are formed when a type of protein is trapped under the skin. That protein is known as keratin.
- Milia have several classifications: neonatal milia for kids, primary milia for children and adults, milia associated with drugs and products, among others.
How to Prevent Millia
If you’re one of a lucky bunch that has managed to dodge milia last summer, good for you. Here are steps to help you prevent the rise of milia for good.
- Lessen your exposure to the sun
Just as too much exposure to the sun can damage your skin and cause acne, it can also cause milia on the face. While the weather begins to get cold with autumn around the corner, the sun's rays can still be harmful especially around noon time. Try to avoid going out during noon unless necessary, and wear sunblock to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays.
- Exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week
Skin exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin cells and keeps the face smooth. It is recommended that you exfoliate your skin two to three times a week to maintain its smoothness.
Address Milia with a Miracle Solution
To end milia on your face, try using the lactic acid peel. As an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), lactic acid gently exfoliates dead skin cells off of your face. It also unclogs pores on your face over time, getting rid of dirt and bacteria. The results will take a certain period, with possibly a minimum of six weeks of continuous lactic acid application.
