After having milia seeds I have been looking for its solution from a long time...
as I said in my post the best way is shredding off dead skin...
but you know I have milia seeds on my eye lids & under eyes ..
These skin areas are very delicate & sensitive.
I have tried one gentle scrub but that irritated my eyes badly...
then I have tried few home remedies... that I used to exfoliate my face...
but never paid heed on my eye... now I got to know that eyes too need exfoliation.

So I tried some home remedy for cleansing my skin deeply & it will also help in removing dead skin...
It can be applied on & under eyes.
Remember my How to get rid of holi colors post in that post I have mentioned yogurt & lemon for
removing colors & from there only I discovered this can be used as a mask to remove tanning
and it will also work as an exfoliant and reducing spots and acne.

I have used yogurt & lemon juice in 1:2 ratios & left it for 20 mins .
After rinsing it I can see beautiful smooth glowing skin & then I have started applying it frequently.
Why Lemon and yogurt:
Lemon has AHA that helps in shredding off dead skin & reduces pigmentation & scars.
Yogurt that has lactic acid in it also helps in shredding of dead skin & moisturize skin deeply .
It also tightens skin & shrink pore.
I am using this mask every alternate day as lemon can be too acidic & drying for skin so I better
avoid it every day.
Next remedy is of easy peasy scrub...
Mix jaggery with some honey and use this mixture to exfoliate, be gentle to your skin esp. eyes &
use it twice a week...This can be a good gentle scrub for delicate skin areas.
Why jaggery and honey: Both honey and jaggery have glycolic acid that helps in reducing
blackhead and exfoliate skin. It also helps in reducing oil and honey being a humectant moisturizes
My milia seeds are still there but with the frequent use of these remedies they are getting softer and
I am hoping they should shred off.
These remedies are good for exfoliating skin and can be taken as a precautionary measure for milia.
