Milk contains lactic acid, which is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). AHAs have been part of an ongoing craze of the skincare industry for several years. They are either sourced from natural ingredients such as milk or they are synthesised in a laboratory. AHAs penetrate the top layers of the skin to slough off dead skin cells. Exfoliation stimulates the skin and healthy cells are regenerated. Using AHAs in your skincare allows the skin to rejuvenate itself more quickly.
