Milia could be defined as tiny whitish or yellowish papules of keratogenous material that usually appear on the nose, on the cheeks or on the forehead. Even if they are not considered as a major health problem, they are really ungraceful and they last several weeks.Here are a few tips on how to get rid of them naturally and prevent them.
1) Water vapour
Use water vapour or a really hot washcloth to open up your pores and facilitates the disappearance of impurities.
2) Castor oil
Daily, apply castor oil on the area that you want to treat and massage your skin gently. Apart from just being really good for the skin, castor oil is also a really good antibacterial and reduces excess sebum.
3) Organic honey
Honey can be applied regularly as a face mask during about 20 minutes to get rid of milia while giving you the softest skin.
4) Cider vinegar and corn flour
Mix 3 tablespoons of corn flour with cider vinegar and apply this on your skin for about 30 minutes. Then rinse off with cold water to tighten pores and remove excess sebum.
5) Rose water and sandalwood powder
Mix both ingredients in order to prepare a nice face mask that you can apply for about 15 minutes before rinsing off.
6) Exfoliate regularly
You could prepare a natural scrub (with a plant oil and powdered acai for example) or just use a rough terry towel. Extracting milia by pulling it off or by piercing it isn’t recommended however exfoliating the skin is the best way to get rid of dead skin and that is exactly what your skin needs.
