Rejuvenating Dry Skin
Our skin begins to lose moisture from the moment we are born, so just growing older can cause dry skin. Exposure to the sun and wind causes dry skin, as does exposure to air conditioning, heating, harsh soaps and strong detergents. Hot baths and showers can also strip moisture from our skin. Water is essential in maintaining soft flexible skin. When skin dries out, it becomes rough and less flexible. It may also become scaly and cracked. Lanate is specially formulated, containing 17.5% ammonium lactate, to revitalize dry skin to give a smoother, more natural appearance.
How To Use Lanate
Lanate is a high strength alpha hydroxy acid cream which should be used sparingly once or twice daily to ensure the best results. Please note the following points:
By removing the surface layer of dead skin cells, LANATE may make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and especially to the ultraviolet (UV) radiation component of sunlight. As UV exposure can damage the skin, sun exposure should be limited by routinely using an effective sunscreen and by wearing protective clothing.
LANATE is for external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, lips and mucous membranes. If you get some cream in your eye, wash it out immediately with cool water.
Sensitive skin may be more responsive to the exfoliating effects of LANATE, which may result in irritation. If you have sensitive skin, test LANATE on a small area of skin before applying the cream to a larger area.
Transient stinging or irritation may occur when using LANATE. If severe stinging or excessive irritation occurs after application, wash the affected area and discontinue use.
Lanate should not be used on children or infants.
Lanate cream contains a novel form of lactic acid and is suitable for all skin types. Lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), has been reported to be an effective, naturally occurring humectant in the skin and has beneficial effects when applied to dry skin, especially dry scaly skin.
Alpha hydroxy acids moisturize skin by reducing water loss and drawing additional moisture deep into the skin. Alpha hydroxy acids also have the ability to exfoliate the skin. This allows faster shedding of the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing new, healthier-looking skin to emerge. This results in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in the general appearance of the skin.
