Lactic Cream Cleanser: Your Skin’s AHA Moment

As you get older, you may start to notice your skin losing its elasticity, hydration, and fullness. While there are many products on the market that claim to “reverse the hands of time,” a lot of them are just that – claims. If you are looking for firmer skin, AHAs might be just the thing you need for real results. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are tried and true ingredients that have been studied for years; they aren’t just a gimmick that sells the possibility of reversing time. AHAs are a group of plant-derived acids used in a variety of anti-aging skincare products.

These acids are typically used in products such as serums, toners, creams, and concentrated treatments, such as chemical peels. AHAs are primarily used to gently exfoliate and promote cell turnover. They can also improve skin texture by eliminating dead skin cells, promoting collagen, correcting discoloration from age spots, improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and brightening your complexion.

Of all the AHAs available, lactic acid is a superstar. It is one of the mildest forms of AHAs, so it’s safe to use on sensitive skin. Your skin’s overall texture will improve with the use of lactic acid because it is firming, yet gentle; this balance makes it the perfect skincare ingredient for mature, sensitive, or dry skin. Lactic acid also assists in fading acne scars and reduces the appearance of highly visible pores. While lactic acid is gentle enough to use on most skin, when combined with a cream cleanser it is a skincare powerhouse for mature skin. 

Cream cleaners are just what the doctor ordered for an extra hydrating boost while also removing stubborn dirt and oil. Unlike traditional soaps, cream cleansers are non-soap-based, so they won’t irritate skin that is sensitive to foaming ingredients, like sulfates. Cream cleansers have ingredients that leave your face feeling soft because they skip the super drying ingredients and replace them with hydrating ones. This can include soothing botanicals like oat seed oil, chamomile, sunflower oil, and cucumber extracts. 

With a milky, smooth, luxurious texture, the Azul Lactic Cream Cleanser is a perfect anti-aging cleanser for mature skin because it’s hydrating, while also gently exfoliating dead skin that’s weighing you down. This is a unique product on the market because it is both a hydrator and a natural exfoliator. Suitable for dry, sensitive, or mature skin types, this product helps you retain moisture and peel away layers of dead skin cells.

The Azul Lactic Cream Cleanser is recommended for daily use to keep your skin glowing and healthy. One can apply a small amount of cleanser to their face with water to gently lather. Apply in circular motions and rinse well. The cream cleanser will not lather in a traditional sense, but it is still getting down into every pore.
