Don’t know what those WHITE, UGLY BUMPS on your face are? We’ve got a solution to remove them FAST!

You’re doing your regular nighttime routine when you realise that your face is littered with tiny, little, white bumps. You think it’s a pimple and you try all the pimple creams hoping to clear your skin but nothing works. 

Just as you are about to give up, we’re here to tell you that we have a solution!. But first, what exactly are those unsightly lumps and bumps on your face? 

Usually 1 to 2 millimetres (mm) in size, milia seeds are small, white, keratin-filled bumps that appear on the skin. They are usually 1 to 2 millimetres (mm) in size. They are bigger than whiteheads yet aren’t red and sore like pimples. They are painless but persistent and can be very difficult to get rid of. 

Milia usually develop around the nose and eye regions causing rough and uneven skin textures but they may develop in other areas of the body as well. Milia seeds are common in babies but it is a condition that affects both men and women too.

What causes Milia Seeds

Milia seeds develop when skin flakes become trapped under the surface of the skin, or when keratin builds up and gets trapped. But what causes this in the first place?

There are a lot of factors that can cause milia seeds but the common ones are due to poor sun protection, lack of exfoliation, excessive use of soaps and cleansers, environmental pollutants, using creams that are too rich for your skin, hormonal change or damage to skin glands. 

What most people don’t realise is while that rich moisturiser may be best at hydrating the skin, they also tend to be oil-based. When excessive oil accumulates and clogs up the sweat glands, milia seeds will form.

 

How to remove milia seeds

In most cases, milia will disappear on their own within a few months. However, If the milia on your face are irritating you, don’t pick at the affected area. Trying to remove milia can cause you to bleed, scab, and even scar. 

Scraping the skin can also introduce germs to the area and cause an infection. As milia seeds don’t have a pore opening, it is best if they are treated with professional extraction techniques. 

At MEROskin, we can help you remove milia seeds to help you achieve a smooth skin complexion. Our Milia Seed Removal Treatment is a painless and safe process done by our experienced and skilful beauticians through a thorough and deep cleansing of the face to remove impurities that are present.
