Lactic Acid Skin Care
An AHA Anti-Aging Skin Care Treatment

Lactic Acid Skin CareLactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid used in rejuvenation products and is considered to be a gentle yet very effective anti-aging treatment.

It's a standard ingredient in natural skin care recipes.

Lactic acid also has one of the oldest histories as a skin care treatment that literally spans centuries!

Derived from milk, lactic acid is well known for not only its skin hydrating properties but as one of the gentler AHA exfoliants.

Dating back to the ancient beauties such as Cleopatra, who legend has it, luxuriated in milk baths filled with rose petals.

That's right, milk (goat's milk in fact) was in actuality an ancient lactic acid spa treatment.

Typically found as an active anti-aging ingredient in moisturizing treatments, lactic acid is noted for its rich moisturizing attributes and its ability to exfoliate dead skin cells without provoking skin irritation.

Lactic acid skin care is well documented as an effective anti-aging treatment. Now lactic acid is considered a staple as a specialty spa treatment for skin rejuvenation as well as used in the stronger anti-aging skin peels performed in skin care clinics.

Sharing the similar skin rejuvenation traits of glycolic acid, lactic acid skin care is known for:
  • diminishing fine lines and wrinkles
  • reducing the appearance of age spots
  • reducing hyperpigmentation
  • improving skin texture
  • stimulating collagen production

Lactic acid also presents the added benefit as a skin softening agent which makes it an excellent option for sensitive skin types.

Lactic acid treatments tend not to irritate the skin as much as other AHA treatments; namely glycolic acid. It is a favored ingredient in natural organic skin care recipes.

Did you know that milk can be used, straight from the bottle as a gentle yet moisturizing skin cleanser and toner?

As with any alpha hydroxyl acid, remember to use sunscreen liberally because your skin's
sensitivity to the sun increases!

It isn't surprising that lactic acid has become a very popular ingredient in both OTC anti-aging skin care products as well as in homemade natural skin care recipes.
