MAPLE GROVE, Minn., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- We all have that one thing that fits just right, hugs every curve and never goes out of style—our skin. But unlike a missing blouse button or a fallen hem, when skin gets dry, it's not always an easy fix, especially if it occurs on less noticeable, often neglected areas like the backs of arms or bottoms of feet. With its unique alpha-hydroxy therapy, daily use of AmLactin® products encourages natural skin cell renewal through gentle exfoliation while intensely hydrating, making dry skin a problem that is both out of sight and mind.
"Dryness is a common cause of annoying, unsightly symptoms, like roughness, bumps or calluses, which often occur in areas that are tough to see like the bottoms of feet or backs of arms and legs," said New York Cosmetic Dermatologist, Dr. Doris Day. "That's why it's important to be proactive about keeping skin properly moisturized, stopping dry skin in its tracks. A twice a day application of a moisturizer containing 12% lactic acid, like AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion, gently exfoliates rough, dry skin and helps retain skin's natural moisture while drawing water to the skin, so it looks and feels its best."
