The infamous Queen of the Nile was notorious for her flawless complexion…. and you can be too!
GOT LACTIC ACID?
What was Miss Cleo’s secret to clear, beautiful, smooth skin? The answer in short… milk! The beauty queen knew milk was an excellent source of skin-nourishing lactic acid. Historians testify that the ancient Egyptian Queen regularly bathed in various breeds of milk including goat, horse and even donkey! Lactic acid softens, hydrates and renews like none other. Milk really does do the body (and its skin) some good!
‘SHED’ SOME LIGHT ON BEAUTIFUL SKIN…
Lactic and glycolic acid are both VIP members of the AHA dynasty. Alpha hydroxy acids have been used for centuries to treat a wide variety of skin concerns from the teenage plague known as acne to the old maid’s epidemic…wrinkles! These effective, yet gentle acids rapidly dissolve pore-clogging debris and stimulate the production of ceramides. Natural Skin Shop’s Glycolic Peel 20% is an ideal concentration for those who are new to the a-peeling process of skin rejuvenation!
THE ROYAL TREATMENT
Cleopatra’s modern-day recipe for beautiful, clear skin would consists of equal parts lactic acid, resorcinol and salicylic acid. Known as the Jessner Peel, this comprehensive blend of skin-renewing agents combats acne and rejuvenates a dull, discolored complexion. Lactic acid renews the surface of the skin and sheds dead skin cells as salicylic acid digs deep into congested pores to clear obstructing comedones. All the while, resorcinol provides a bacteria-free peeling zone.
So go ahead… be the queen of beautiful skin!
