MAPLE GROVE, Minn., July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rough, dry patches of skin would make Lady Liberty herself want to lower her torch-bearing arm and seek relief. Between splashing in the pool and hanging out in the AC, summertime is prime time for drying skin saboteurs. If independence from dry skin is what you seek, look no further than AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion. With clinically proven 12% lactic acid, it gently exfoliates and intensely hydrates, leaving behind soft skin that would make even America's Founding Fathers proud.
"Many people think dry skin is a 'winter thing' and come to me with concerns when it appears in the summer," says board certified New York cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Doris Day. "Dry skin can occur at any time and is associated with many conditions, Keratosis Pilaris (KP) being one of them. KP is an incurable skin condition and can be worsened by extreme environmental conditions in any season. For these reasons, I recommend incorporating exfoliation into your skincare routine regardless of the weather. A moisturizer rich in alpha-hydroxys, like AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion, makes this important step simple. Its dual action formula contains lactic acid, which works to exfoliate away dry, dead skin while providing essential moisture to new cells underneath."
About AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care
AmLactin® moisturizers contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are effective at exfoliating and hydrating the skin. AmLactin® formulas also contain emollients and humectants that help retain the skin's natural moisture and draw water to the skin so it looks and feels soft and smooth. The AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care line includes AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion, AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream for severe dry skin (formerly AmLactin XL ®) and AmLactin® Foot Cream.
AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream is specially formulated for severe, persistently dry skin areas that need extra attention. It contains the advanced, patented ULTRAPLEX® formula that gently exfoliates and is clinically proven to intensely hydrate for long-lasting moisture. With rich humectants and creamy emollients, AmLactin® Ultra provides serious relief.
When using products with AHA, be sun smart: use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using these products and for a week afterward.
