I have only mild acne, but I have quit a bit of milia around my eyes. Are there any good ways to get rid of milia?

To get rid of true milia, the "seeds" need to be surgically extracted. Talk to a dermatologist. The cysts are very tiny, so they just make a little nick in the skin and express the seed. It's very important that the entire seed is removed whole or they will just come right back. Don't try to do it yourself. Since you are talking about them near the eye, you probably do have true milia.

But many people on this forum refer to closed comedones as "milia", and those respond to topical treatments like the various acids used for skin like glycolic, salicylic, and mandelic.
