12 Common Causes of Milia

Sun Damage

Milia can be a result of sun damage on the skin. Harmful UV rays can affect the outer layer of the skin. Thus, they affect the ability of this organ to get rid of dead cells. Over time, you can be at a higher risk of developing milia. A simple way to prevent this problem is to apply sunscreen whenever you go out. Make sure to choose products with an SPF of at least 30. Also, you should wear full-length pants, shirts, hats, and sunglasses to cover the whole body, especially when you have to work outside for an extended period of time. [2]
