Why We Get Tiny White Spots On Our Face & Body

If you've ever gotten tiny white pimple-like spots pop up your face, you're not alone. In fact, it's very common. But can we avoid them? and should we be treating them?

On today's episode of Ask An Expert, Shazzy is joined by dermatologist Dr Adam Sheridan. He joins us to chat about what they are, why we get them, the difference between the spots (milia and Fordyce) and when to worry. 

Plus we did some myth-busting, can your eye cream give you milia?
