What Is Milia?

Milia skin condition is a rare disorder that causes small, white spots & bumps to form on the skin. The bumps are often mistaken for whiteheads or acne, but they are not related to either of those conditions. Millia can occur on any part of the body, but is most commonly found on the face, neck, & chest. There is no cure for milia, but the condition is not harmful & usually goes away on its own within a few weeks or months.

What Causes Milia?

Milia is caused by dead skin cells that get trapped in a hair follicle. This clogs up the pore & begins to harden, causing a build up of keratin (a protein) & sebum (an oily substance produced by the skin). This build up creates an environment for bacteria to grow inside the pore, which irritates it & leads to inflammation.

The bumps can occur alone or in clusters by certain skin conditions such as acne or eczema. Milia can also be caused by sun damage, certain medications, & trauma to the skin.


Milia most commonly appear on the skin around the eyes & nose, but they can also occur anywhere else on the face where there are oil gl&s. Milia typically occurs in adults between the ages of 20 & 50 years old.

It can also occur in baby, newborns however last no longer than 4 weeks.

How to Prevent Milia In 9 Steps

Milia are small, white bumps that can form on your skin. They’re usually found on your face, but they can occur anywhere on your body. Milia are harmless & don’t require treatment. However, if you don’t like the way they look, there are a few things you can do to prevent them from forming including milia removal at home.
Cleanse Your Face

To prevent milia, start by cleansing your face twice a day with a mild cleanser. You can also use a facial scrub or exfoliating brush once a week to help prevent milia. Be sure to avoid picking at or squeezing your skin, which can cause milia to form.
Salicylic Acid for Milia

Salicylic acid is a common active ingredient in over-the-counter acne medications. It works by dissolving the outer layer of skin, which helps to unclog pores & prevent future breakouts. Salicylic acid can also be used to treat milia, which are small white bumps that often appear on the face.

To treat milia with salicylic acid, simply apply a small amount of the product to the affected area & wait for it to dry.
Topical Eye Cream

If you’re looking for a topical eye cream to help with milia, you might want to try one that contains retinoids. Retinoids are compounds that are related to vitamin A & can help to speed up the turnover of skin cells. This can help to reduce the appearance of milia by helping to expel the build-up of dead skin cells that can accumulate around themiliums.

Exfoliate your skin once a week to remove dead skin cells that can clog your pores & lead to milia formation. Exfoliation also helps stimulate cell regeneration & improve skin tone.

Use a gentle, non-abrasive exfoliant that contains salicylic acid, glycolic acid or enzymes. Look for products specifically labeled for facial use & avoid physical scrubs that can irritate the skin. Rinse the exfoliator off with lukewarm water & pat your face dry with a clean towel.

Follow up your exfoliation with a hydrating moisturizer to keep your skin healthy & prevent milia from forming in the first place.
Retinoid Cream

Retinoid cream is an effective treatment for milia, as it can help to speed up the turnover of skin cells. This can help to prevent the formation of new milia, as well as helping to clear existing ones. Retinoid cream is available over the counter or by prescription from a dermatologist.
Use High Sunscreen Protector Daily

Be sure to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. If you have fair skin, be sure to use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 60 to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
Don’t Pick It! But if You Must…

However, if you want to remove them for cosmetic reasons, you can try using a sterile needle to gently puncture the spot & release the built-up oil. Finally, avoid picking at or popping existing milia, as this can cause them to spread or become infected.

I have been a returning customer to Artistry Clinic for a number of years. My first treatment was for nose reshaping, I was so happy with the results, I have since returned multiple times and have expanded to receive other filler based treatment. I am always made to feel comfortable and have absolute confidence in the results every time.
