How Do You Get Rid of Bumpy Eye Texture Around Your Eyes?

Last Modified: March 27, 2024

Trying to disguise bumpy skin under your eyes using concealer is often ineffective. The uneven texture makes it virtually impossible to get that flawless, smooth finish you are trying for. In the end, you may be tempted to throw your cover-up in the garbage and completely forget about it.

You aren’t alone in your struggles. There are plenty of people trying to deal with bumpy eye texture.

Dealing with Milia

While there are several causes of bumpy eye texture, one of the most common is Milia. If you notice white bumps in your undereye area, it’s caused by keratin that’s become trapped under the skin. Unlike the typical whitehead, which contains pus, milia is not a sign of clogged pores.

While there are some home treatments that may be effective against these, such as steam, exfoliating the skin, and rose water, sometimes more drastic measures are necessary. Some effective treatments for this condition include:


This process can be a bit intimidating, but when handled by a pro, it doesn’t have to be. A small, sterilised needle is used to remove the milia under your eyes.


With this treatment, liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the milia. This destroys them and is considered the most effective way to get rid of this problem.

Laser Ablation

A small laser is used to focus on the milia, opening the cysts. Once open, the keratin can be removed, eliminating the white bump.

Preventing Future Milia Under Your Eyes

After treatment, if the milia come back, you may need to think about changing up your skincare routine. Some tips to help with this include:

Clean, Exfoliate and Moisturise Your Skin Regularly

If you over-exfoliate, you may cause irritation, but a small amount of exfoliation under your eyes can encourage the growth of new skin cells. When these come to the surface, they can loosen any keratin trapped under them.

For skin that is prone to milia, consider using cleansers and soaps that are oil-free. You may also want to look into a skin peel.

Use a Serum

It’s a good idea to think about buying a night serum that is infused with vitamin E or a topical vitamin A. Make sure it’s approved for use on the sensitive skin under your eyes.

As you get older, your body will lose its ability to naturally exfoliate the skin as it gets dry. With a serum, you can lock in the much-needed moisture and promote the growth of new cells while you are sleeping.

Consider Oral Supplements

Everyone needs to get enough of the vitamins necessary to give skin a healthy glow. If you are worried you aren’t getting enough of these vitamins with what you eat, add some supplements. The best options include B-complex vitamins, niacin, and vitamin E.

Getting Rid of Bumpy Eye Texture for Good

When it comes to bumpy eye texture, there’s no question that most people want to get rid of it as quickly as possible. Use the tips and information here to ensure that the selected treatment is as effective as possible for both short-term and long-term results.
