How to Get Rid of Millet Seed Acne
According to "Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice," millet seed acne is acne in its earliest stages. Millet seed acne is characterized by small, hard bumps that can be felt under the surface of the skin. Without treatment, millet seed acne will grow into pimples or be absorbed by the body. By promptly treating millet seed acne you can increase the odds of it being absorbed by your body as opposed to forming an uncomfortable pimple.
Mix 1/4 cup dry oatmeal with 3 tbsp. warm water in a small bowl to form a paste. According to "Braun-Falco's Dermatology," oatmeal is hydrating and purifying without drying out skin or causing irritation.
Wash your hands thoroughly with antibacterial hand soap. According to "Handbook of Dermatology: A Practical Manual," when dirty hands touch your face, bacteria can be introduced which can lead to additional acne.
Splash your face with warm water. This will dilate your pores, allowing the oatmeal paste to neutralize your skin's pH and heal your millet seed acne.
Apply the oatmeal paste to your millet seed acne and allow it to dry, which will take about 10 minutes.
Rinse off the oatmeal paste with warm water and then splash your face with cool water to constrict your pores. Constricted pores are less likely to become clogged with sebum and bacteria, therefore improving your body's ability to avoid new blemishes.
