Milia are very small, raised, partly-white or yellowish harmless bumps on the skin. These bumps are a type of skin cyst filled with a protein called keratin. They are most commonly found around the cheeks, nose, eyes, eyelids, forehead and chest.
Advice for avoiding milia

Avoid using heavy oil products around the eye area
Avoid sun exposure to the face and always wear an SPF 50 on the face, while checking that the products contain no oil
Assessing diet and lifestyle: more sleep, reduced cholesterol rich foods (for example, eggs and meats)
