We all need help after the holidays with getting back on track- whether diet, exercise or skin care! Seems we all tend to run to check our health at the Doctors, or get our eyes examined, but do we check in with our Esthetician after eating everything chocolate in site? Hmm- that is the question.
I find a few of us need a bit of a push when it comes to skin care needs, and now is the time to get your skin care health up to par. Whether starting new products or just getting a facial treatment to skim off the holiday debris. I am a firm believer of exfoliants, and I have started carrying The Ordinary Brand of Lactic Acid, which is a mild exfoliant designed to not be aggressive in the peel. Slow slight peeling works just great when it comes to being out in public, or working all day in front of a camera (selfie). Come in and lets get you started off right for the New Year, Great exfoliant facial, and home care with The Ordinary Lactic Acid Serum.

Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. This 10% formulation offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation. This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. Contraindications: Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions. This pH of this formula is approximately 3.8. Lactic Acid has a pKa of 3.8 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing effectiveness of the acid.
