What are milia and how do you get rid of them?

Milia are little “sebaceous cysts” that sometimes occur as a response to skin trauma. They can show up around the eyes, sometimes from makeup application, and on the forehead. They can also be caused by overmoisturizing or using rich, creamy products on the skin. Check your skin care regimen first – that may solve the problem. Milia sometimes occur after laser resurfacing, and can also be an expression of sun damage. Many older people – especially men – get them on their cheekbones and around their eyes. They can be treated by extraction, microdermabrasion and superficial peels.
