Explore what Milia is…

“What are these little white spots on my skin? Where do they come from? How the heck do I get rid of it? Can you extract them?”

What are these little white spots on my skin? Where do they come from?

Milia are small keratinized cells that become trapped or impacted underneath the uppermost layer of the skin. Milia reside in the epidermis of the skin and primary form due to lack of hydration to the epidermis. Because of this dehydration, small white cysts will form in the epidermis. These pearls of cells are harmless but aggravating because they impede on skin looking clear.

How the heck do I get rid of it? Can you extract them?”

As annoying as they are to look at you cannot extract them! The only proper way to rid yourself of Milia is to start a chemical peel series for deeper exfoliation and invest in a good hydrating serum and in time they will diminish! Good Luck!
