Sykes’ Plumping Molecules works not only to exfoliate the skin but helps to unclog pores, soften the skin and encourage healthy collagen growth. Lactic Acid is an effective alpha-hydroxy acid and very good at exfoliating and softening the epidermis. It produces an excellent balance in exfoliating the skin without any tissue damage or irritation – producing a hydrated, plumping effect!
Lactic Acid, also known as milk acid, is a powerful alpha-hydroxy acid. It is often used as an exfoliating agent; isolated and obtained via glucose, fructose and sucrose from various fruit and botanical sources.
Lactic Acid deeply penetrates pores, removing any existing dirt, while simultaneously washing away dead skin cells. It also has the ability to increase the rate of cell shedding, new skin cell production, and collagen formation. Lactic Acid’s natural affinity to the skin makes it very effective at softening the surface.
Courtney’s Application Recommendations: Dispense a small amount of Plumping Molecules to your fingertips and smooth over entire face and neck. Leave on for 1 to 3 minutes, depending on tolerance. Rinse with cool water to neutralize. Plumping Molecules may be left on, if the skin is able to tolerate the “tingle”, followed by a Nourishing Serum or Nourishing Cream to replenish moisture.
INGREDIENTS: Purified Water (Aqua), Lactic Acid, Xanthan Gum.
