Hello, I'm Sandra Oulmas, and this is how to reduce milia. Milia are small cysts that appear as tiny white bumps on the surface of the skin. There are comprise of dead skin cells which have been closed under the pore and therefore often cannot be extracted as easily as a blackhead. The best way to reduce milia is to balance sebum production and exfoliate regularly. To balance sebum or oil production, use a cleanser with a combination of glycolic and salicylic acid morning and evening. These little fun beta hydroxy acid will effectively deep clean your pores and remove any milia inducing debris. For exfoliation, integrate retinoids such as Retin-A into your skincare regimen to rapidly shed dead skin cells, again, to prevent milia from forming. For existing milia, extractions are necessary. Extractions are performed by skincare professional and involve a tiny incision or prick with a needle-like tool to open the affected pore. The milia are then removed as skincare professional exerts gentle pressure on either side of the pore. As a warning, do not try to perform extractions at home. Doing so without the proper training and sterilized equipment can result in an infection and further irritation. Again, I'm Sandra Oulmas and thank you for watching how to reduce milia.
