Noticing white little bumps on your skin lately? We’ve got you!
Having a close look at those concave mirrors magnifying every teeny-tiny impurity on our skin always creates a haphazard and leaves us frantically looking for skincare solutions. Be it blackheads, whiteheads, indentations, bumps or open pores, noticing them demands a corrective action. Upon scavenging those impurities, have you ever come across those raised white bumps clustered in specific parts of your face? Those tiny white lumps that appear just under our skin are called milium or milia. Milium can occur as small lumps under our eyes, on our chin, on our nose and on our cheeks. It is a highly common issue among people from all age groups - children, teenagers, young adults, adults and old-aged people and can be caused by different reasons, especially ageing and genetic predisposition.
Our skin dwells multitudinous bacteria and dead skin cells. With neglected scrubbing and exfoliation, these dead skin cells accumulate in the pores right under the skin, forming cysts. These cysts appear in the form of white-ish bumps on the skin forming Milia. When our body does not scrub off the dead skin cells naturally, it prompts a weekly exfoliation routine - to slough away the dead skin cells from inhabiting the skin’s surface and clogging the pores. Hence, the necessity of using a Face Scrub.
Wonder how to get rid of Milia?
Now that we recognise those white bumps and what causes them, let us tell you the right way to drive milia away! In order to effectively get rid of milia, it becomes necessary to first dry it out and then get rid of the bacteria residing on the skin. Super ingredients like Azelaic Acid, Niacinamide and Salicylic Acid aim at drying out the milia effectively without affecting the skin’s texture. It further aids any marks or skin discolouration while increasing the skin cells turnover. These potent ingredients also enhance the skin’s texture, leaving you with a firm and hydrated skin.
