There is No Fountain of Youth.
It’s not the years, it’s the mileage. While that’s true for our bodies, it’s especially true for our skin. First there’s the natural aging process that starts to appear around our mid-20s and is driven, in part, by genes. Though not visible for decades, there are plenty of signs that reflect the result of slowed collagen production and less elastin (the substance that gives our skin its springiness). Plus, dead skin cells don’t shed as quickly and the turnover of new skin cells decreases. Yes, all that begins as early as our 20s.
Add to that all the external factors like decades of sun exposure, gravity, and even sleeping positions, and it’s pretty easy to understand why Ponce de Léon spent his whole life wandering around Florida.
Dry aging skin is a reality we all face. And while you can’t turn back the hands of skin time, AmLactin® alpha-hydroxy moisturizers can improve the appearance of your skin. Though not a specific aging skin treatment, AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion gently exfoliates and intensely hydrates to help your skin take back some of what it has lost by encouraging natural skin cell renewal. With a clinically proven 12% lactic acid formula that works deep within the skin, AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion offers long-lasting moisture retention for real comfort. Whatever your age.
AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care
AmLactin® moisturizers contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are effective at exfoliating and hydrating the skin. Our unique lactic acid formulas also contain creamy emollients and rich humectants that help retain the skin’s natural moisture and draw water to the skin so it looks and feels soft and smooth. In other words, it’s amazing how you’ll feel inside when you use AmLactin® outside.
