Since the skin is in layers and damage can exist in layers, it is important to use a good method of exfoliation along with copper peptides for improved results.
AM: After cleansing the skin, apply a light amount of your favorite copper-peptide product. The application should be so light that it just barely covers the area
without leaving it excessively wet or damp.
PM: After cleansing the skin, follow up with a light application of LacSal Cream (a 10% hydroxy acid).
HOW IT'S DIFFERENT:
This soft, milky-white, easily absorbed cream is a mild system (8.5% lactic acid and 1.5% salicylic acid) at pH 3.6. [At pH 3.6, the actual concentration of exfoliating salicylic acid = 0.29% and the inert salicylate = 1.21%] For soothing skin during exfoliation, LacSal Cream also contains natural lipids and anti-oxidants that normally exist in the skin, mixed (alpha, beta, gamma, delta) tocopherols, mixed (alpha, beta, gamma, delta) tocotrienols, CoQ10, and lutein.
LacSal Cream is designed to encourage removal of old skin and add skin lipids and natural antioxidants to the exfoliated area. LacSal is a mild "leave-on" product. Do not wash off.
If other products such as copper-peptides or moisturizers are used, wait at least 20-30 minutes before applying them on top of LacSal.
