How to use The Ordinary Lactic Acid
We know you’re searching for ‘The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10 how to use’ and ‘The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5 how to use’, so we’re here to educate you.
The Ordinary Lactic Acid is technically a serum that can be added to your skincare regimen. The brand recommends using this product at night, as exfoliating acids may cause sun sensitivity if applied in the morning.
As for how often to use The Ordinary Lactic Acid, you can use it every day. With all chemical exfoliating products, it’s a good idea to introduce them to your skin slowly. Try using Lactic Acid every second day before building up to daily use.
What are The Ordinary Lactic Acid ingredients?
Both The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% and The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% contain mostly Water, Lactic Acid, Glycerine, and Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer. Tasmania Pepperberry, which is known to reduce skin irritation, is also featured in both formulas.
How to dilute Lactic Acid The Ordinary
While we recommend starting with The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% rather than the 10% formula, you can also dilute either product to lower its potency.
A good way to dilute Lactic Acid is to mix it with another serum or moisturiser—one containing hyaluronic acid works well.
But don’t try to ‘dilute’ Lactic Acid with something that contains retinol or another acid. You’ll end up with irritation, not exfoliation.
