For best results, use as directed below. 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.
1. 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 heavy with product.
2. PM: After cleansing the skin, follow up with a light application of Lactic Power 10 (a 10% hydroxy acid).
HOW IT'S DIFFERENT:
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.
What is Lactic Acid? Lactic acid is found in the skin. It is the most natural hydroxy acid. Lactic acid is generated in energy production within the body. These acids work to loosen the chemical links between older skin cells, allowing for easier breakdown of damage. The concept of using hydroxy acids or fruit acids is ancient. Cleopatra wrote the book "Beautification" in which she described the use of fruit acids, sour wine or sour milk (all of which contain hydroxy acids) to renew and beautify the skin.
Today, we use pure forms (low in cosmetics and higher in dermatologist administered products) of such acids, AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) to speed skin turnover, lessen the appearance of skin lesions, help restore skin firmness, even out skin tone, and improve skin elasticity.
Why Lactic Power 10? Lactic acid works well on the skin's surface. The formula of Lactic Power 10 works as an effective cream with 10% pure lactic acid as its active ingredient. For the protection of the skin during exfoliation, it also contains natural skin lipids and anti-oxidants such as mixed tocopherols, tocotrienols, Coenzyme Q-10 (ubiquinone, CoQ10), leutin.
This leave-on exfoliator is designed to encourage old skin removal but also add skin lipids and natural antioxidants to the exfoliated area - leaving your skin smooth, beautiful, and clear.
For those with sensitivity to using to salicylates such as beta-hydroxy acid: salicylic acid, Dr. Pickart's formulation of Lactic Power 10 will be a welcome option in their search for a gentle yet effective exfoliator that really works!
Lactic Power 10 does not contain any exfoliating beads. This product is to be left on. Do not wash off. Use cautiously around the eye area. Avoid upper eyelid.
