Even Cleopatra would bathe in milk just to keep her skin hydrated and glowing. Considered to be one of the most beautiful women in history and there’s no arguing with the efficacy of lactic acid.

Moisturizing

There are few ingredients in the world, and definitely, in the natural world, that are as moisturizing as lactic acid. This acid penetrates even the deepest layers of skin, carrying with it the moisture that the skin so desperately needs. Unlike other sources of moisture, lactic acid does not just deposit hydration. Instead, it helps to train skin cells to hold on to their moisture.

One of the main causes behind both oily and dry skin is the skin’s inability to hold on to the moisture that it needs. This usually results in one of two conditions, the first being that the skin is always dry, as it has secreted all of its moisture. In the other condition, the skin is always too oily, as it can sense that it is not properly hydrated and compensates by producing far too much oil.

Exfoliation

Lactic Acid is chocked-full of important nutrients. Many times, the reason that scars do not go away is that the face lacks proper exfoliation. Overtime, complexions do not slough off old cells as it once did as a child, this is when dull skin begins to appear. Lactic acid can aid the skin’s exfoliation process by providing natural enzymes that remove dead skin cell build-up. By applying it directly to the skin, the enzymes are delivered right where they are needed. Healthy skin will appear, and your skin will be glowing again.

If you have particularly sensitive skin or a known allergy to lactose, it is probably best to avoid lactic acid.
