Lac-Hydrin 5 Gets The Job Done.

It's dry skin time, which means I'm on the hunt for something that seriously works. Not something that hydrates the top layer of your skin, but honestly, I'm looking for something that won't allow my skin to crack. Yeah, my skin is that dry. Gross, I know. But it probably happens to you or "your friend" from time to time, so I know we are all in this together.

A million years ago, when I was a wee lass, I'll never forget a dermatologist saying to me, "Do you have insurance?" Then she wrote me a slew of prescriptions for my weirdly dry skin, one of which was Lac-Hydrin. It made an instant difference in my skin, with good reason. It was 12% lactic acid, so it got the job done. And it burned if you had any cuticles that weren't perfect or if you applied it right after you had just shaved.

Flash forward and I'm all grown up and can get Lac-Hydrin 5 from the drugstore, without a prescription. The AHA level isn't as high, but it doesn't sting. In fact, it's non-comedogenic and fragrance-free, too. It's like the best of both worlds, super-effective like the prescription, but without the sting of the doctor visit co-pay and the 12% lactic acid. If you have really dry skin, this doesn't smell or look fancy, but it will get the job done.
