Hello, my name is Mary Thinnes and I'm a skincare expert. The fourth alpha hydroxy acid we're going to discuss is lactic acid. Lactic acid is actually a derivative of milk. That being said, if you are lactose intolerant or allergic to milk, you can still actually use lactic acid on your skin. Actually, depending on the severity of your allergies to milk though, I would be careful and tend to gear more towards a different acid, if you are allergic to the milk. As far as lactose intolerance goes though, that has nothing to do with putting lactic acid on your face. Again, lactic is good for sensitive skin. It's also good for pumping up the skin and helping to fill in those fine lines and wrinkles, as far as home care regimens go. With lactic acid, you're going to apply it the same way and once you put it on the skin, you're going to want to leave it for a good minute and let it dry, then proceed with putting on your moisturizers, or other products over the top. Again, this is a home care product so you're not going to rinse it off the skin--there's no need to rinse it with water. That being said, that is the fourth alpha hydroxy acid and that is lactic acid.
