Natural Homemade Remedies For Milia

The yellowish or whitish spots around your eyes are known as milk spots, or more professionally known as milia.

Milia can also appear on your cheeks, your forehead or on your nose, but most of the time, they appear around the eyes.

The increased production of sebum is the most common reasons why milia can appear. Milia can also appear due to trapped dead skin cells. Other reasons why it can occur is the use of thick cosmetics and too much sun exposure.

There are many different treatments for milia, however, they are oftentimes very expensive and can even leave you terrified. That’s because milia is usually removed with lasers or extreme heat. Other treatments include freezing the bumps or by using chemicals to melt them.

Why go through all these treatments, when you can get rid of milia in a completely natural way. These are just a few of the natural remedies that you can choose from (depending on which suits you the best) to help you treat this problem.
