Lucky Number 13

I love skin potions. Cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate, and cast some spells. Everyone has unique skincare needs, but I can’t speak highly enough about lactic acid. Great for sensitive skin, it is an excellent addition to anyone’s  regimen. Lactic acid  helps stimulate collagen synthesis, improve skin texture, decreases the appearance of wrinkles, and improve skin discoloration.

While my very favorite lactic acid product is Sunday Riley Good Genes, at over $100 an ounce, it is my luxurious splurge product, and not part of my regular routine. What makes it into the weekly lineup is The Ordinary’s Lactic Acid 5%.  This product is both priced affordably and makes you feel like a wizard.  I am looking forward to hearing from Dan in Boston on how he enjoys his bottle!

TIP: Facial skin is usually too sensitive for physical exfoliants, so try a chemical one instead. Physical exfoliants are great for your body though! Sugar scrubs and the Reddit nemesis St Ives Apricot Scrub are awesome for your back, booty, and thighs.
