Reasons Little White Bumps Are On Your Face and How to Get Rid Of
you making these mistakes each time you spot a little white little
bump on your face? Fixing those little white bumps starts with a
small dose of education and ends with a big dose of prevention.
After understanding the five reasons below, your little bumps should
give way to clearer skin.
#1: You have no clue what those little white bumps are anyway.
white bumps, or milia, are keratin-filled cysts, or simply little
globs of protein under the skin. There are generally two types of
milia. Primary milia may result from oil glands that have not fully
or properly developed. Secondary milia result from trauma to the
#2: You think all little white bumps are acne, and treat them that
because you have little white bumps on your face does not necessarily
mean that you have acne. Milia, are little balls of protein beneath
the skin that do not have a pore, or hole in the skin through which
or whiteheads are excess fats and wastes that are trapped in a hair
follicle and so they clog up the pore. In short, milia are proteins
trapped within the skin, while comedones are fats and skin debris
trapped within the pore.
the skin, or removing the dead skin cells from your skin with an
abrasive product or chemical, is beneficial. But brutally scrubbing
your face with soaps and chemicals too frequently may actually create
milia. To avoid this, remember that gentle exfoliation helps prevent
excess dead skin cell build-up that could clog your pores and cause
whiteheads, not milia.
gentle exfoliation helps make eventual removal of the milia easier
because the skin layer around the milia becomes thinner, with frequent,
yet gentle exfoliation. In short, Exfoliate your skin to prevent
milia, not to cure them.

you were a baby, you were probably covered with milia that disappear
after a few days. Or, you may have inherited milia from your parents.
the other hand, you may develop milia after excessive exposure to
the sun. The reasons for developing milia after sun exposure are
debatable. According to some studies, the active ingredients sunscreens
like Parsol 1789 may cause sun allergies and later lead to a milia
breakout. Other studies blame the sun itself for “damaging” the
skin can thus causing little white bumps.
people experience milia around the mouth. This could be the result
of fluoride irritation from toothpaste.
# 4: No one ever told you how to prevent milia.
best way to prevent milia is to avoid treating your skin with excessively
harsh chemicals and to limit sun exposure.

amount of ingredients possible to avoid irritating the delicately
thin eye area. Also, gently touch the eyes and avoid rubbing the
eyes vigorously so as not to damage the skin.
brushing you teeth, try to keep the pasty foam from staying around
your mouth too long. This limits possible fluoride irritation to
a sunscreen with the least amount of ingredients. Extraneous ingredients
like fragrances may irritate your skin. Additionally, purchase sunscreens
that offer physical sun blockage that contain active ingredients
like titanium oxide or zinc oxide.
#5: You still want to know what you can do right now to get rid
key to getting rid of milia is realizing that they have no escape
route, those little bumps are trapped under the skin. So, to get
them out, you’ll need to have a professional like a dermatologist
or aesthetician extract them. You can extract the milia yourself,
but this involves risks.
You need to ensure that you milia are not symptoms of some underlying
disease or illness. Also, if you extract the milia yourself, you
may have trouble completely pulling out the cysts, as the removable
process may prove too painful.
if you are confident with your health and courage, you can cleanse
your hands and face. Then wet a cloth with warm water and apply
it to your face for a few minutes. Gently apply a sterile needle
to the center of the little white bump to create a tiny opening
in the skin.

gently squeeze the contents of the little white bump out. Finally,
cleanse the area of the extracted little white bump with an astringent.
you have no reason to walk around with little white bumps on your
face. If you still think you do, please consider the possibility
that you’re just telling yourself little white bumpy lies.
