What causes Milia on the face?

What causes Milia?
Milia occur when dead skin becomes trapped in tiny pockets near the surface of your skin. When the surface of the bump wears away, the dead skin is sloughed off and the milia bump disappears.

Five main causes of Milia are -
1. Sun Damage
Sun damage is one of the main reason to milia, because sun thickens and toughens the outer layers of skin, making it difficult for skin to shed dead skin cells naturally.
Use a sunblock formulated for your face and wear sunglasses when you're out in the sun to protect the delicate skin around your eyes.

2.Facial Products ( heavy, creamy skin care products )
Using heavy face creams or thick makeup can sometimes clog the sweat glands and hair follicles, leading to the formation of milia. Thoroughly cleaning your face after using these products, or switching to lighter weight eye creams may help combat the formation of milia around the eyes.

3.Use of oily moisturizers or sunscreens specifically meant for the face and not eyelids

4 Diet rich in proteins, fat and cholesterol like egg yolks, margarine.
Lack of essential vitamins like vitamin A
