Have you ever noticed white bumps under your eyes or somewhere else on your face? Those ugly hard lumps are the result of pore clogging and they develop around eyes, nose, cheeks and neck. Generally, small kids are vulnerable to this skin issue but adults also get milia due to the lack of essential skin care regime. Skin experts describe that milia is a set of cysts filled with keratin and occurs due to hormonal changes, sun exposure or excess oil production. It is not a very serious skin problem and can be cured with the help of some natural methods. Some of those methods are elaborated below.
1. Honey and Jojoba Oil
We all know that honey is a blessing for skin care and jojoba oil is known for its moisturizing properties. All you need is 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil and 2 tablespoons of honey. You can change the quantity of these ingredients but you need to ensure that the ratio of the quantities of jojoba oil and honey should be 1:2. Apply and keep this mixture on face for at least 15 minutes and then, wash it off with lukewarm water.
2. Cinnamon and Baking Soda Pack
I must say that cinnamon is one of the most underrated herbs. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it helpful in treating skin problems naturally. You need 1 tablespoon of baking soda and half tablespoon of cinnamon powder. Now, add some lemon drops in this mixture to make the paste. Apply this paste properly on the affected area and let it dry. After this, wash this pack with lukewarm water to see better results.
3. Egg Mask
Interestingly, egg white is not only beneficial for hair but also for the skin. This remedy requires four ingredients which are honey, yogurt, half teaspoon of almond oil and an egg. Combine all these ingredients together and ensure that the quantity of yogurt and honey should be equal. When you apply this mixture on white facial bumps, let it stay on them for at least 30 minutes, so that all the ingredients can show their impact. Use warm water to wash it off and apply the mask at least thrice a week.
4. Garlic and Lemon with Orange Peel
Lemons and oranges are rich in vitamin C, whereas garlic has its own herbal properties. Dry out the orange peel and grind it to get a fine powder. Now, peel and crush two garlic cloves, add few drops of lemon along with orange peel powder and mix them well. Apply this paste on milia spots and don’t wash your face before 10-15 minutes. Make sure that you wash it off with lukewarm water.
5. Green Tea and Aloe Vera
Although, aloe vera itself is a powerful plant and can do wonders for skin, but adding green tea to it can make it way more effective. Brew a fresh cup of green tea and leave it for few minutes so it cools down. Once the tea cools down, you can mix aloe vera gel in the equal amount and make a paste. Apply this natural paste on white bumpy spots, let it stay for 15-20 minutes and then rinse it off with water.
6. Potato Juice
We all know that potato is a rich source of starch which is quite effective in reducing milia. If you are seeking for the simplest remedy to cure milia, then you can try this one. Blend a potato to get some juice and apply it on those white blemishes with the help of a cotton ball. Do not wash the face until it completely dries.
With the help of these natural remedies, you can say goodbye to milia easily. I will be back with another post soon. Till then, take care.
