Treating Milia Spots Naturally

What is Milia?

Milia spots are little white spots on your skin usually found around the eyes or lips. These annoying, tiny cysts are produced by an over production of keratin. Some folks call them milk spots.

The Medical Option.

There’s a safe effective way doctors remove milia from your skin by using a scalpel and shaving down the area to expose the cysts. Treatment is fairly painless, but can have a good price tag attached to it.

Natural Remedies for Milia that Work.

Two options we have seen work might not have permanent results, but neither does going under the knife, sometimes. Cysts of any kind are tricky… if the sack isn’t removed completely, a cyst can refill. These natural options don’t remove the sack, but can dry up and reduce the fluid inside.

Tea Tree.

Tea tree oil has plenty of benefits. Using tea tree oil on a cotton ball and placing for several minutes on the infected area can shrink milia. This process is almost immediate in appearance. The results only last a few days, but the process is safe and effective to be repeated every so many days. Be sure to stay away from the eyes. The fumes from tea tree are strong and can burn your eyes. Do not ingest tea tree oil. And if you are sensitive to tea tree, add a few drops of a carrier oil like olive or coconut oil to reduce the potency.

Castor Oil.

Castor oil is a great moisturizer for your skin. The oil is extremely thick and sticky. It’s a great oil to ingest if your constipated. However, the benefits for using it on the outside of your body are pretty amazing as well. Castor oil can give your skin a deep glow when used once. But not only that, recurring use where needed has been known to reduce milia. Not entirely sure why castor oil dries out milia when moisturizing the rest of your skin, but the results are hard to argue with. And, opposed to tea tree, the result seem to last longer than just a few days.

So if you are having issues with milk spots or milia consult with your doctor on your best options. You may find that going with one of these natural remedies just might be your best option!

Easy Enhancements

If there is a certain part of your body that you have been unhappy with for a long period of time, you might want to look into ways to change it. You were born with certain features which make you unique and distinctive, but it is understandable if some of these things are making you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. If you’re serious about making a change then look into a local plastic surgeon, who will be able to advise you. Even if you just book an initial consultation to explore your options, it is worth having a look into how they could help you.

Skincare Smarts

If you’re prone to regular skin breakouts and acne, then it’s likely to be getting you down. Your face is the first thing you will inspect each morning to see how bad your skin situation and it isn’t easy when you have to stare at zits all the time. Try changing up your skin care regime and stop using products which are full of toxic chemicals. Opt for plant based organic products which are made from natural ingredients. Tea tree oil, lavender and rosehip are all amazing products to use for sensitive and spot-prone skin. Use a clay face mask once or twice a week to clear out the impurities in your pores. You will soon have brighter and fresher skin, which will make you feel more confident.

Effective Exercise

You try on a bunch of clothes and you’re never quite happy with how they look on your body. You think your thighs are too thick or your bum is too wobbly; of course these are the things which make you beautiful, but you should consider targeting your problem areas with exercise. You will never be fully happy in your body, so you can’t expect perfection. All you need to do is take part in regular exercise which makes you feel good. If you enjoy the workouts you are taking part in you will soon begin to feel more energetic and positive. Exercise releases endorphins which make you feel happy, so there really is no excuse for skipping out on your next gym class.

Whether you’re looking to straighten out your nose, tighten your wrinkles or tone up your bum, make sure you start being proactive about your imperfections. You don’t need to live with these stresses and strains, just look into your various options and choose what works for you.
