Those tiny bumps on your face getting in the way of your smooth, clear complexion are not so unusual.
They are called milia and are caused by dead skin cells that become trapped and harden under the skin. They can stick around for quite a while. We tend to see those stubborn bumps on all skin types, including dry mature skin.
DON'T CREATE A BUMPY CYCLE
If you find these small, fine bumps that appear white or almost colorless cropping up on your forehead or underneath your eye in particular, you might be tempted to cover over the issue with makeup in order to get that smooth look. But this might be creating a vicious, bumpy cycle.
PEELS CAN HELP
A series of at-home skin peels can help with a number of bump-causing issues. Peels can gently, but effectively, removes the top layer of pore-clogging dead skin cells. Consistent use of peels will remove excess dirt and oils that cause the bumps and pimples under the skin.
If the mila are stubborn and persistent then it might be time to schedule an appointment with an esthetician who can do a steam and extraction. Another option is a visit to the dermatologist who can quickly lance and remove the tiny hardened bit of keratin.
SKIN IS YOUR SHIELD
Clogged pores are a major culprit when it comes to bumpy skin texture. Our skin is our body’s shield and it comes in contact with so many elements daily. Heavy cosmetics, foundations, and grime are somewhat obvious, but even certain moisturizers, soaps, cleansers, detergents, and sunscreen can all be contributing factors.
In addition to the peels, daily use of glycolic pads or lightweight foundations could help with the clogging factor. Although it might take a little bit of time to see results, a healthy lifestyle and good cleaning routine will help get you long lasting results .
