Question of the Week - How Can I Get Rid of Milia? 

  • "Dear Lauren, Can you talk about in your next podcast how to get rid of white little bumps under the skin? (Milia) or which products you can use? I really love your show and I always enjoy listen to it! All things about Korean if its culture, the language, beauty or k-drama I would like to hear more of it. Thank you for your hard work! Kind regards Sandy" 
  • Mild cases of milia usually go away on their own.
  • However, there are some procedures you can try at home that won't damage your skin
    • A good home remedy is to steam your face. 
    • You can also try spot exfoliation using acids or retinoids
  • Otherwise, I would recommend seeking professional assistance. An aesethetician or dermatologist can help to pick the contents out using a sterile needle. Other options include chemical peels, cryotherapy, laser etc
