Skinstitut L-Lactic Body Wash - The Secret to Stunning Sensitive Skin.

By Melmeko @melmeko

I never use to give my body the care and attention itdeserves, well not to the same degree that I care for my face.  :-S  Formost of my life, my poor old body was neglected and didn’t get pampered at all,other than being regularly cleansed with soap,EEK!   :-O  Soap,d’oh.... that is almost a dirty wordthese days,  #-o  yet, prior to converting to a body wash, soapwas all I ever used.  :">  [-X   Yearson, after discovering the remarkable benefits of incorporating AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) intomy body care regime, I have never looked back. #:-S   I seriously doubt that Iwould ever manage to get through a tropical Far North Queenslandsummer again without my trusty AHA body wash. 
Skinstitut L-Lactic Body Wash - The Secret to Stunning Sensitive Skin.Initially, when I was introduced to AHA’s, I was using a Glycolic Acid infusedbody wash, however because I am blessed with sensitive skin, at times, my skingets all irritable, (usually aftershaving) so I have to avoid Glycolic Acid coz it just exasperates theproblem.  :-< I was recommended this SkinstitutL-Lactic Body Wash (featuredpreviously  in my Top10 Favourite Products) a couple of years ago, when it was first launched, by the Darren, one of the incredibly knowledgeableand extremely helpful skin care therapist’s from the Facial Company.  He suggested the gentle Lactic Acid based formula would be more friendly and appropriate for my temperamental skin type, so I checked it out and decided it might beexactly what I needed.  B-)
The good thing about Lactic Acid as apposed to Glycolic Acid is that Lactic Acid is naturally foundin our skin anyway, so it’s suggested to be the most gentle of all AHA’s.  It is just as effective as the harsher Glycolic Acid when it comes tosloughing away dead, dulling skin cells and stimulating the natural cellturnover process. It also decongests pores and it helps increase the hydrationlevels of the skin to promote a firmer, smoother texture.  :)
As per its claims, I have found the SkinstitutL-Lactic Body Wash to be completely non-irritating, so even when my skin ISinflamed, I can still confidently cleanse my body, knowing it won’taggravate the condition.  Surprisingly, it’s actually ideal for reducing thesymptoms of angry, red skin and is evidently proposed as being suitable for even the most sensitive types.  It is certainly mybest defense in avoiding the dreaded itchy, red rash, razor bumps and ingrown hairs thatI would frequently experience, thereafter shaving my legs.  Blocked or obstructed hair follicles can wind up getting infected, hence these problems arise,  :-L  however, with regular use of an exfoliating body wash, my pores and hair follicles are kept clear and unrestricted to allow the regrowthto come through easily, avoiding any irritation.  =D>

Another bonus is that the addition of AHA’s to the normal cleansingroutine, will annihilate the rotten summer sweat pimples, (belonging to the acne vulgaris family) often referred to as ‘bacne’, which usually appears on the back,upper arms and buttocks.  :-/   These zits or pimples, (which tend to resemble mini volcanos at times  :(  ) unfortunately, breakout over the bodyduring the hotter, more humid months of the year as our sweat glands becomemore overactive.  ~X(   Washing with the SkinstitutL-Lactic Body Wash helps clean the pores of any dead skin, oil or bacteria thatclog up in the pores when we sweat.  Therefore,as a result, these pimples are no more!   \:D/
I also find the price amazing, at only $36 for awhopping 375ml.  It’s presented in apump-action bottle featuring the typical Skinstitutpackaging, with the white, purple and silver/pewter design and logo.  It is a clear, amber coloured, gel-basedformulation with a runny fluid-like consistency.  I am ultra partial to the lovely fresh, clean, mildlycitrus scent that is ever so delicate and not at all offensive.  :x  Just one pump of the liquid distributed ontomy shower puff is ample to work into a rich, luxurious lather that will wash andexfoliate my entire body with no effort at all. ;)

It rinses off easily without leaving any greasy residue.  Instantly, my skin feels super smooth andsoft like silk to touch.  It’s totally non-drying, delivering extra moisture to my skin, leaving it adequatelyhydrated and perfectly balanced for optimum skin health.  Since I started washing with the SkinstitutL-Lactic Body Wash, my skin has taken on a naturally radiant,healthy-looking glow, which makes a nice change to its previously dull, sallow,often scaly appearance.  :D
This is the first, and only, Lactic Acid body wash Ihave experienced myself and In my opinion I highly doubt if there were similar productsavailable, I would find a better, more affordable treatment body wash thanthis.  I would say it's supreme; absolutely flawless.  (*)  I basically use it every other dayor on a daily basis during the warmer months when I need to shower at least twice a day, sometimes more.  I would highly recommend it, especially foranyone with sensitive skin issues that wants to indulge in the benefits of a using a chemical body exfoliator but generally finds most AHA products are too harsh and end up upsetting your skin.  Well, you needn't miss out on the positives any more, the SkinstitutL-Lactic Body Wash is the answer to all your prayers.  [-O<  Woot, Woot, Sensitive Skinned Beauties Rejoice!!!   <:-P  <:-P
