Deconstruct came up with a very beginner friendly formulation as most lactic acid serums in market have 10% concentration.
Lactic acid as an ingredient helps in surface level exfoliation that means it can help with skin texture and pigmentation.
The serum’s consistency is neither too thick nor watery thin, just right. If you have used Hydrating Serum from Deconstruct you will know that they have nearly similar texture and consistency.
Who is it for?
• Someone new to chemical exfoliation. • Mild pigmentation (acne marks, sunspots etc). • Mild and small pimples aka roughness of skin.
I am someone who prefers salicylic acid over lactic acid because that’s what my skin reacts best to, but this one really surprised me. Helped a lot with patchy whiteheads on my forehead. One more interesting way to use this is- on underarms, will help a lot with exfoliation, preventing ingrown hair, pigmentation and keeping them odour free.
It’s advisable to use it twice a week on dry clean skin and follow up with your regular moisturiser. Wear your sunscreen as AHA (lactic acid) or any active indeed tends to make your skin photosensitive.
If you are looking for an ideal serum to start your chemical exfoliation journey then this is it!
