AmLactin Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion ($12)
Dr. Palep explains that there’s really nothing this moisturizing body lotion can’t do, as it’s easy on your wallet and can be effective for those dealing with skin conditions such as keratosis pilaris. “I like to recommend this body lotion to my patients with keratosis pilaris, which are spiky, dry, rough patches of skin that form on the back of the arms and thighs.”
Amazing hydration content aside, Dr. Palep adds that this AmLactin product also contains lactic acid, a skin-care ingredient she says can help exfoliate dry and rough skin.
According to a 1996 study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, lactic acid is also an ingredient known for its impressive anti-aging properties. Study participants who used products containing 12-percent lactic acid, for example, were noted to have an improved appearance of lines and wrinkles.
