Have you ever heard of milia?  Most people have not, as it is a rare skin condition that affects over 3 million people a year in the U.S.

Milia is more commonly known as milk spots, and they can affect all ages, and are hard to get rid of.  Milk spots appear when keratin gets stuck under the skin, and is most commonly found in babies. Milk spots also affect adults though as well.  Key causes of milk spots have been linked to sun exposure, burns, blistering, and use of steroid creams.

If you have milia, take a care not because there are many unknown natural remedies that can help!Check out this comprehensive guide for helping with these annoying little bumps:

Lemon Juice and Sugar

Mix together 2 Tbsp. of sugar along with half a lemon’s worth of juice, and 1 tsp. of oil.  Lemons have amazing antioxidants and healing properties, making them a go-to solution.

Just put the mixture on your face, and leave it to sit for 20-30 minutes.

Natural Honey

Like lemons, honey has great healing properties that have been used for thousands of years.  Honey attracts moisture to the skin, which helps exfoliate the outer layer which causes new skin growth.

Try blending it with sugar for added effect.

Castor Oil

Although castor oil has been used to treat conditions such as constipation, asthma, and bladder infections, it is also great for skin.

Combine it with equal parts of olive oil and apply to your face.  Wait for it to soak in, then dry off.

Steaming Your Face

Steam is the greatest way to rid yourself of skin impurities.  The steam helps open pores in the skin, and get rid of any gunk that might be hiding underneath those layers.

Tea Tree Oil

This oil hasgreat antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, that make it a great product to put on your skin.

To use, put a small amount to the affected area, and let sit overnight.

In the morning, clean your face with water.

Pomegranate Peel Powder

This fruit is one of the best cures for milk spots due to its antioxidant and exfoliating properties.

To make use of this technique, roast a pomegranate peel until it is brown, then crush it to a powder.  Mix with lemon juice if you like as well.

Put it on your face and leave it for 15 minutes before washing it off.  Repeat this for a few weeks and your skin will be clear!

Cornstarch and Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix the cornstarch and vinegar to make an astringent paste, and apply it on your face. Leave it on for about 25 minutes, then rinse off.
