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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
