Milia

What is Milia?

Milia are tiny cysts that form most commonly on the face, although other areas of the body can be involved. Milia form when skin cells that are normally shed during skin cell turnover become trapped. When this happens, the trapped cells are walled off and tiny cysts form.

Treatments

Heavy cosmetics and improper skin products play a big role in the formation of millias. It is important to use products that are labeled non-comedogenic and oil-free. Switch from a liquid foundation to a light, mineral-based make-up. Exfoliation is also helpful. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Milia

Milia are tiny cysts that form most commonly on the face, although other areas of the body can be involved, especially the neck and chest. These small, white bumps have the look and feel of tiny pearls. If you try to pop or puncture one of these bumps, which you shouldn’t do, a thick, white material comes out that’s made up of dead skin cells. Needless to say, they can be a source of frustration from a cosmetic standpoint.

What Causes Them?

Milia form when skin cells that are normally shed during skin cell turnover become trapped. When this happens, the trapped cells are walled off and tiny cysts form. Some people have a number of these small bumps on their skin.
