What causes milia and how can I treat them?

Milia are the result of very dry skin or when a complexion is not being cared for correctly. They appear as small white lumps on the skin, typically around the nose and eye area, and unfortunately can’t be removed by extraction like a blackhead or spot.

Milia occur when sebum and natural secretions of the skin get trapped deep in the epidermis and can’t escape in the normal way, becoming solid. The condition can occur in people of all ages.  Occasionally, milia will disappear on their own without intervention, but if they do need removing, it’s important that a professional treat them safely with a needle or laser.

A good skincare regime will help prevent the issue, so the sooner you get into a routine the better. The key ingredients you need to be using to help the skin function include red seaweed, blue micro algae extract and hyaluronic acid.
