What Are Alpha Hydroxy acids?
Alpha-hydroxy acids are commonly found and isolated from fruits of all sorts. That is why they are referred to as fruit acids. For example, malic acid is found in apples, citric acid can be isolated from most citrus fruits and glycolic acid is commonly found in honey and sugar cane. Lactic acid is found in milk that has soured and Tartaric acid can be isolated from fermented grapes (wine).
Lactic acid works as an exfoliating agent because of its high acidity but easy solubility. When placed on the skin as part of an exfoliating cream or gel, lactic acid goes under the damaged upper layers of skin and destroys the ‘glue’, which holds dead skin to the surface. As this dead skin is chemically burned off, the other ingredients carry the individual flakes away and a water rinse neutralizes the remaining acid. The result is a much-smoother skin surface and a more youthful appearance. A secondary benefit is lactic acid’s ability to draw moisturizers into the newly exfoliated skin surface.
One study showed that topical treatment twice a day for 3 months with 5% lactic acid cream at pH 2.8 affected surface and epidermal changes, while the same treatment, but with a 12% cream reached deeper and influenced both the epidermis and the deeper dermis layer, and resulted in increased epidermal and dermal firmness and thickness. Both showed clinical improvement in skin smoothness and in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Another study showed that AHAs might thin the outer stratum corneum but actually end up increasing the overall thickness of the epidermis. This thickening is accompanied by increased synthesis of collagen. It is apparent that alpha-hydroxy acids may do more than just increase exfoliation and skin cell turnover
How does a chemical peel work?
Chemical peels work by loosening and gently sloughing off the damaged, unattractive skin cells. Depending on the strength of the peel, you may feel a slight tingling or the mild sting of sunburn. Flaking may occur several days following the peel as the damaged skin is freed and new, unblemished skin cells rise to the surface. Lactic Peels can also work on the deeper layers of skin to accelerate the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
Lactic Acid is a naturally occurring human metabolite, there is less potential for allergic reaction with this type of acid peel.
Lactic Acid is said to be less harsh and more moisturizing than Glycolic Acid skin peels.
Lactic is one of the Alpha Hydroxy acids (fruit acids). Fruit acids are nontoxic, naturally occurring substances, and are found in a variety of fruits, such as grapes, apples and sugar cane. Other fruit acids are Citric, Malic, Glycolic and Pyruvic Acids.
Effective: Lactic Acid is a thorough exfoliator, removing the outer layers of thickened or damaged skin, leaving a smoother and healthier appearance.
With prolonged use, Lactic Acid has been found to be beneficial in improving dry skin, treating age spots, improving oily and acne prone skin, and decreasing fine lines and wrinkles.
Benefits Of Lactic Acid Peels:
Lactic Acid has been beneficial in improving dry skin, treating age spots, decreasing facial lines, and rejuvenating the skin’s surface. Dermatologists and estheticians have been utilizing lactic acid as an effective and proven tool in the fight against the aging process.

The Lactic Acid 90% skin peel is a wonderful addition to your skin care regimen IF USED CAREFULLY! I admit that I made a few mistakes when I first tried this. I started out by leaving it on for one minute and got a nice rosy complexion for a few days. Two minutes gave me good results as well. It was when I hit four minutes that I started getting some minor burning (easily covered with make-up), which went away in a few days.
Don’t be surprised if this peel aggravates existing lesions on your face the first couple of times you use it, but be patient and each time you use it the results will get better.
Yes, it burns, but a hair dryer on a cool setting goes a long way in cooling your fiery face. Be sure to keep a bottle of water with a little baking soda in it close-by; putting this on your face immediately will neutralize any acid that remains on your face.
I use this about once a week for about three minutes at a time. It has resulted in a definite improvement in skin tone and texture.

Ok, I don’t really take time to write reviews, but oi decided to take some time for this product. I have melasma (severe pigmentation on my face), and this is the stuff that helps to keep it under control. I make this mask once a week, every other week, alternating with the glycolic acid mask. have to say, that it burns pretty bad, I started for a 5 min for like a month and then got to the 10 min masks.
I stand in front of the open freezer with a manual fan in my hands the entire time, it just makes it much more bearable this way. the effect of these masks worth the pain of the 10 min! first, I should mention that I have some breakouts and also an extremely oily skin, especially during the hot summer days. my makeup runs off my face within a couple of hours.not anymore. Using this product keeps my melasma and my oiliness under control, also it dries out any little pimples that come out on the rare occasion. But I think the best effect of this product is that it minimizes my pores and gets rid of fine lines and wrinkles.
I am 29 and the fine lines around my eyes started to appear, this stuff literary erases it all! So happy! The pores on my t-zone go away and the makeup goes on so smooth and looks 100 times better! So I would really recommend to use it if u have similar problems to mine. and it is much cheaper than the salon visits, where they really are doing the same thing! if u r willing to take the little pain for the great results, please do, u wouldn’t regret it. I do it on Friday night since after the mask ur face will have a minimal peel and needs to be protected from the sun, the more the better, and the makeup wouldn’t look very smooth on it, but by Monday it looks fabulous!
