Have you heard of the latest ingredient to help fight signs of aging?  While people typically use antioxidants, vitamin C, or other creams to combat the signs of aging, new evidence suggests that lactic acid is another great ingredient that will help prevent wrinkles in your skin. Even if you are only in your 20’s, it is never to early to think about ways to prevent premature aging.

Which skin type will benefit most from lactic acid?

Lactic acid is classified as an AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid) which is known to provide benefits to the skin through exfoliation and slow down the aging process. By removing dead skin cells, the lactic acid helps new, healthy cells emerge.

There are a variety of lactic acid based products that can be found. Something to remember is that you must always use a high SPF sunblock since the removal of the dead skin cells will make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.

Although lactic-acid-filled lotion is not going to ensure that your skin will never ever wrinkle, it will definitely help make it better.  And because it is gentler than other acid-based creams, it could be the very best option for people who have sensitive skin.
