Have you ever noticed small, white bumps on your skin, particularly around your eyes, nose, or cheeks? These could be milia, which are caused by trapped keratin, a protein found in the outermost layer of skin. Although milia is a harmless skin condition that doesn't require treatment, if they bother you, there are a few treatment options to consider. For starters, gentle exfoliation with a facial scrub or chemical exfoliant can help clear up mild cases of milia. Another option is retinol, a type of vitamin A that can help skin cell turnover. For more stubborn cases of milia, extraction by a dermatologist or esthetician may be necessary. This involves using a small needle or lancing tool to puncture the cyst and remove the trapped keratin.
