Do you know what milia are? Milia is a skin condition which causes the appearance of small white hard bumps on the skin which usually appear on the face, neck or chest.
They are commonly known as milk spots, and are actually an accumulation of keratin under the surface of the skin.
They are common in babies, but they do appear in teenagers and adults as well.
In general, milia are not harmful at all, but they are aesthetically unpleasant.
They are not a sign of a bigger problem so you shouldn’t fear them.
However, if they appear in large clusters they can make you look bad and ruin your self-esteem, which is why everyone is looking for a way to get rid of them.
Sadly, milia are not easy to remove except for some natural treatments.
Here are the best remedies against milk spots:
Boil some water and pour it in a big bowl, then lean over it and let the steam hit your face for as long as you can stand it.
This will open up your pores and clean them well, effectively chipping away at the milia bit by bit every day.
Oatmeal scrubGrind a cup of oatmeal, then add a bit of water in a tablespoon of the oats and use the paste to rub your face. Pay special attention to the areas around the milia and repeat the process every day for best results.
Thanks to the acids it contains, tomato juice can be of great help against milia.
Squeeze a tomato and use the juice on your face, gently massaging it in the area around the milk spots.
Leave the tomato juice to work for 20-30 minutes, then wash it off with warm water.
Honey is a great remedy for numerous skin conditions including milia.
Just rub a bit on your face every day for 20 minutes, then rinse with plenty of water.
