Do You Ever Get Little White Spots On Your Face Like This? Heres What It Could Mean

By Kelly Wilson

This unknown skin condition is called milia. While unknown in name, it is indeed known by the over 3 million people a year in the U.S. who have it.

You may know it by milk spots. They are difficult to get rid of and they can affect all ages. Basically they come about when keratin ends up getting stuck under the skin. The condition most commonly is found in babies.

They do very much affect adults as well. The reasons they occur are often because of sun exposure, burns, blistering and sometimes the use of steroid creams.

While hard to get rid of, milia can indeed be treated by many unknown natural remedies.

 

Here’s a guide showing you what to use and how to use it to rid yourself of these little bumps:

Lemon Juice and Sugar

The amazing antioxidant and healing properties which lemons have make them a great treatment. Mix 2 Tbsp. of sugar with half a lemons worth of juice, plus 1 tsp. of oil.

Apply it to your face and let sit for 20-30 minutes.

Natural Honey

Honey also has strong healing properties and it has been used for thousands of years for healing purposes. The moisture attracting ability of honey will help the skin exfoliate the outer layer. This in turns causes new skin growth to occur.

Mix with sugar for additional benefit.

Castor Oil

This has been a go-to remedy for a long time, but usually it is constipation, asthma and bladder infections which it is used for.
Turns out, its great for the skin as well. Equal parts of olive oil can be mixed with castor oil and then you apply it to your face.
Allow it to soak in, then dry off your face.

Steaming Your Face You’ve probably heard of how good steam is to get rid of toxins. It opens up the pores and releases all the impurities
lying within the layers of skin.

Tea Tree Oil

Antibacterial and anti-fungal properties are the highlights of tea tree oil. It works great for you skin.
Take a small amount and apply it to the area. Allow it to sit overnight, then wash your face in the morning.

Pomegranate Peel Powder

This is the most well known for milk spot treatments. It has excellent antioxidant and exfoliating properties
to it. First roast a pomegranate peel until brown. Next, crush it to a powder. Finally, if you like, you can mix
it with lemon juice.

Now apply this to your face and let set for 15 minutes. Then wash off. Do this for a few weeks and you should have
clear skin

Cornstarch and Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix these two together in order to create an astringent paste. Then place on face and leave on for about 25 minutes. Then rinse it off.

Fenugreek Leaves

Antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties are the highlights here. Healing acne breakouts, blackheads, boils, milk spots, and other common blemishes are standard fare for many cultures using these leaves.

Take a handful of them, grind them with a little water, then apply this paste to your face for a 15 full minutes. Then wash it off.

Remove Makeup Before Bed

This should be standard practice as leaving makeup on irritates skin and can cause impurities. Its always important to free up your skin from chemicals as often as possible.

Stay In The Shade

When in the sun, stay in the shade! The rays from the sun can be harmful to the skin and can cause damage.

Share these remedies with friends and family so they can rid themselves from milk spots or take preventive measures so they wont get them!

18 Simple Hacks You Can Use To Improve Your Overall Health TODAY

By Kelly Wilson

Every day we hear more and more about things we should be doing to improve our health. But with the sheer volume of studies, it’s impossible to follow it all! How’s a person to make sure they’re living a healthy life 24/7?

Here’s how. Follow these 18 simple health hacks and instantly improve your life in a very measurable way. From making sure you have an orange ready at your desk, to using a specific body scrub, each seems simple enough. But in combination, all of them will make your life soooo much better!

1. Make all your meals and snacks for the week on Sunday evening. You won’t be rushed during the week and can ensure you’re keeping a healthy diet.

 

2. For a natural mood-booster, sniff an orange.

The oil on the skin helps enhance your mood and alertness — it can also reduce anxiety.

3. Put a couple of drops of lavender oil on your pillowcase at night.

This will help you sleep straight through the night.

4. Floss your teeth.

Besides making your gums healthier, studies show it could prevent heart disease.

5. Use the 20/20/20 rule for your eyes.

Backlights on all our screens aren’t great for the eyes. Every 20 minutes, take a 20 second break and let your eyes wander over something 20 feet away.

6. Meditate every day for at least 10 minutes.

Taking some time to achieve a calmness of mind and clarity of thought comes highly recommended from Silicon Valley’s elite. Use Calm if you want some instruction.

7. Stretch a little every day. Your muscles will thank you.

8. Get off the bus or subway a stop early and walk.

Walking 30 minutes a day is shown to decrease your chance of getting cancer by 90%.

9. Drink herbal tea.

Green tea is a great energy-boosting alternative to coffee. Chamomile helps you fall asleep and fennel and peppermint teas aid digestion.

10. Put the phone down outside of work hours.

Especially within two hours of bed — the backlight can negatively affect your sleep.

 

11. Go to bed an hour early.

If you're having trouble doing this, set an alarm to remind you to get in bed.

12. Skip the expensive stuff and exfoliate your skin with a simple mixture of sea salt and olive oil.

Get the directions here.

13. Never skip the stairs.

Sneak in a little physical activity and always say no to the elevator.

14. Take your food to go and eat outside.

With even 20 minutes outdoors at lunchtime, your afternoon workday will go far better.

15. Pick days throughout the week to be alcohol free.

Especially if you're going to be drinking Thursday through Sunday, it's best to skip the wine on Monday.

16. Try to cut out sweeteners in your coffee.

Reduce your overall sugar intake with this simple trick.

17. Eat and cook at home.

Save money, not to mention the hidden salt, sugar, and fats found in to-go food.

18. Bring a bottle of water with you everywhere you go.

To help save the environment, make it a reusable steel or aluminum one, too!

Why Your Late 20s Feel Like Adolescence All Over Again

By Kelly Wilson

When I was a young teenage kitten, I fantasized about entering the seemingly illustrious decade of my 20s — the decade that would be the great escape from the endless pangs of teenage angst that consumed my teen-girl soul.

Like most naive teenage girls who grew up drugged by an excess of “Sex And The City,” I believed that by the time I reached my late 20s, I would have my sh*t gorgeously together.

I was going to be a thriving Carrie Bradshaw, only younger and even fiercer.

I visualized myself living in the West Village of Manhattan in a fabulous apartment with exposed brick and white walls smattered with impossibly cool modern art.

My future would have an endless stream of adoring, doting lovers, all of whom were obsessed with me. Id consume petal pink cocktails in sophisticated martini glasses in the chic company of fashion editors and artists. Id sign a book deal, in Manolo Blahnik shoes, with perfectly blow-dried hair.

I was confident that by 27, I would have found the person I was going to spend the rest of my life with, have an exciting career in the arts and feel secure and confident in my physical appearance.

But here I am, kittens — 29-years-old, and I couldn’t feel further away from my 16-year-old girl fantasy. I feel more lost than I ever have. Most days, I feel like a shy, confused 13-year-old girl dressed up in adult clothes.

I’m self-aware enough to know I have a lot to be grateful for: I’m healthy (unless I’ve fallen ill with a cheap champagne hangover). I have a vast array of fascinating, crazy, magnificent friends that I adore with every fiber of my 29-year-old being. I might not be making a Manolo Blahnik worthy paycheck, but I do get to wake up every morning and march into a job that I love.

But this article isn’t about the material possessions. Because let’s face it, some people in their late 20s are making bank, and some of us are still praying our credit cards don’t decline every time we swipe them at the corner deli.

I’m talking about something that cuts deeper than money, a feeling that no living, breathing entity in their late 20s is immune from: restlessness.

If you were to scratch beneath the surface of career success and money, you’d discover that every 26- to- 29-year-old youknow feels restless. This was supposed to be the time we had life figured out, yet we feel more lost and confused than we did in our teens and early 20s.

The best way I can describe it is, well, exactly like adolescence (only more intense, because you have bills to pay).

It’s the awkward in-between phase.

In your early 20s, you’re a no-holds-barred wild child.

It’s cute to be the party girl. There is no shame in vomiting out the window of a taxi at 4 am. It’s funny, not embarrassing, to be holding your stilettos in your hand as you stumble home from the club, barefoot at an ungodly hour. Sleeping in your makeup has little consequence.

Sometime around the age of 26 to 27, though, being a hot mess is no longer hot. Sh*t just isn’t cute anymore.

But most of us in our late 20s are hardly ready for full blast adulthood, either. We aren’t quite ready for children, marriage or all of that “real grown-up” stuff.

Being in your late 20s is like being in a bizarre purgatory; you’re no longer comfortable being the 21-year-old blacking out at the party, but you’re also not totally comfortable in a power suit and sensible shoes.

It’s just like being 12 all over again, when you feel too old to be deemed a kid but not yet ready to do teenage things.


Sh*t gets real.

The great expanse of your future lies beautifully ahead of you, so in your early 20s, you have nothing to lose.

Marriage is a million miles away, so it’s totally okay to have a wildly liberating one-night stand or date the toxic musician you would never dream of building a life with.

The moment I hit 27, though, sh*t just started to feel frighteningly REAL. Because the closer you creep to 30, the more you begin to realize real life is actually starting to happen.

You watch your friends get engaged, one-by-one. And then another one gets pregnant. And then another one becomes CEO of a major company.

All of a sudden, you realize the person you’ve been hooking up is nothing more than a warm body, and you start to crave depth. You start to realize the choices you’re making are going to directly affect your future.

Its scary.


You worry you’re not where you should be.

I remember being 11-years-old and terrified to go to summer camp because I was convinced I was the only girl who had gotten her period. I felt like I was an overdeveloped freak of nature and spent the summer hiding tampons in my pillowcase, praying for a miracle. Maybe it just wouldn’t come ever again.

On the other hand, my best friend, Pippa, had daily panic attacks about getting changed in the locker room for the gym class. She was as flat as a board and was terrified to change in front of the full-chested popular girls. She stuffed her bra with tissue and dreamt of having boobs every single night (now she’s a 34 DDD).

The aforementioned scenarios are the perfect metaphor for the end of your 20s.

If you’re single, you fear you’re going to be a crumbling spinster with 30 adult cats for the rest of your life. If you’re engaged, you fear that youre missing out on the party, that maybe you’re tying the knot too soon.

You constantly compare yourself to peers and freak the f*ck out over living too young or too old of a life.

Its a specific kind of hell, reminiscent of seventh grade.


You question your identity.

When I was a kid, I was a free bird who ran around the backyard climbing trees and collecting bugs. I was a wild-haired, free spirit who never questioned myself.

Until I turned 13 — and suddenly, being scrappy and muddy wasn’t cool anymore. Being a tomboy put me in an unattractive category.

So I changed myself to fit in. I started wearing tight jeans and Steve Madden platforms. But I wasnt comfortable in my skin. I didn’t recognize myself in the mirror, and I questioned every move I made.

When I was in my early 20s, just like when I was a kid, I knew exactly who I was. I was an aspiring actress by day and a shot girl by night who lived with her older brother in West Hollywood. I was fully confident and secure in what I was doing.

And then, I turned 26. The endless rejection from the industry and pressures to look a certain way began to take a toll on my soul. I began to question if I even wanted to be an actress anymore.

Suddenly, I was that lost 13-year-old again, uncertain of who I wanted to be and what I was going to do with my life.


Nothing is what you expected.

Often, the things you poured your soul into during your early 20s don’t pan out the way you expected.

You suddenly realize you don’t want to spend the rest of your life pursuing what you studied in college. You’re not sure if you want to get married to the guy you’ve been dating for two years — or you’re not sure if you want to get married at all.

The late 20s is a time of great questioning. The fantasy of what your life should be like starts to wear off, and the sting of reality begins to set in.

And while it’s nothing short of terrifying, don’t fret, because you’re actually in a really powerful place.

The fantasy of your early 20s might be quickly fading, but you’re on the brink of entering something even better than a fantasy — you’re about to enter REALITY. And reality will always kick the sh*t out of a delusional dream.

And never forget that we need confusing times of epic questioning in order to discover who we really are.
