Skin Care Tip
Lactic Acid and Skin Care
Lactic acid is a colorless natural substance discovered over 200 years ago in fermented milk and is a common alpha hydroxy acid used in skin care products. It is a gentle yet very effective anti-aging treatment, and is known for its ability to exfoliate dead skin cells without provoking skin irritations. For these reasons and countless others, lactic acid has become a standard ingredient in many skin care formulations.
Sharing the similar skin rejuvenation traits of glycolic acid, lactic acid in skin care is known for diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the appearance of age spots, reducing hyperpigmentation, improving skin texture, stimulation of collagen production. It also provides the added benefit of skin softening. Skin care products with lactic acid can be very beneficial in the winter months because this ingredient also is great humectant and helps the skin to retain water.
As long as used properly, lactic acid is appropriate for all skin types. However, those with extremely sensitive skin should be cautious of higher strength lactic acid products. You will also want to avoid higher strength lactic acid products if you are using retinol or Retin-A.

Is Tilapia Unhealthy?

Farm-raised tilapia is one of the most highly consumed fish in America; however, it has very low levels of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids compared to its high content of potentially detrimental omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-3 acids help to protect mental and physical health while Omega-6's are pro-inflammatory, and inflammation is a key contributor to many health concerns and the development of chronic conditions.
Tilapia is not necessarily as unhealthy as a doughnut. However, wild-caught Alaskan salmon has more omega-3 fatty acid content and is a species with fewer concerns about environmental toxins. While it is more expensive than tilapia, it is a worthy investment in your health that will reap positive dividends in the future.
