Did you know that as you get older your skin gets drier? It’s true, along with wrinkles and random hairs growing in places they never did before, you have dry skin to look forward to. “Hooray!” She says sarcastically…
It’s because your skin’s renewal process slows down, as does your oil gland production. The dead skin cells that are shed so quickly when you’re younger? They tend to hang around a lot longer as you age.
But dry skin gals, you’re not alone. According to data from a 2015 national online survey of over 1,000 U.S. women over the age of 18: Nearly two-thirds of U.S. women report that the older they get, the more difficult it is to keep their skin moisturized.
So, you need to look for body products that exfoliate as well as moisturize. And it’s not just older skin that benefits from exfoliation. If your skin is dry, regardless of age, exfoliation is going to make a big difference. On that note, meet your new BFF: AmLactin.
Unlike traditional lotions that only moisturize, AmLactin uses Alpha-Hydroxy Acids to exfoliate your skin too. You might already be using AHAs in facial products. And that same powerhouse ingredient can do wonders for your body as well. AmLactin gently exfoliates the surface of the skin to encourage skin renewal. And once the dead skin cells are cleared, the products are absorbed better and more thoroughly. It’s simple, but genius.
There are four products in the line; all are fragrance free, absorb quickly and don’t leave behind a greasy feeling even in the slightest. There’s a Foot Cream and three body products that range in strength depending on the severity of your dry skin:
• Moisturizing Body Lotion for daily use
• Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion for extremely rough, flaky, dry skin
• Ultra Hydrating Body Cream is the big guns for severely dry skin or rough, bumpy areas.
Let me tell you, I am seriously blown away by this brand. AmLactin has literally changed my skin. The Foot Cream has transformed my heels. The Ultra Hydrating Body Cream has helped manage the Keratosis Pilaris (KP) from my upper arms and is a go-to for my dry hands. The Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion has become a savior for my legs. And the Moisturizing Body Lotion keeps my skin looking healthy…and for a gal living in the desert, that’s a near miracle!
I can’t recommend AmLactin enough. And the fact that you can find these at drugstores? Well, that’s just the icing on the well moisturized cake!
