Beginners Exfoliating Serum - 5% Lactic Acid + 1.5% Probiotic

Lactic acid (AHA) is a mild and gentle exfoliant that works to exfoliate dead skin cells from the face gently to make the skin smooth and even the skin’s texture. There is 1% Hyaluronic Acid as added humectant that will hydrate and brighten the skin, whereas 1.5% probiotic will retain the natural microbes of the skin and strengthen the skin barrier. This unique combination of lactic acid, probiotics and hyaluronic acid, will help to boost cell turnover and remove dead skin cells without causing any irritation.

    Lactic acid & Probiotic beginner serum - Deconstruct


    Why is this different?

    A rare combination of Lactic acid and Probiotic  in lactic acid exfoliating serum works effectively on skin texture, skin tone and brightens the skin, along with improving the skin barrier. There is added Hyaluronic Acid to provide hydration to the skin. This exfoliating and hydrating combo works well to gently exfoliate the upper layer of skin, while hydrating the skin. The less concentration of AHA and probiotic is perfect for people with sensitive or dry skin.

    How Does it Work on the Skin?

    • 5% Lactic Acid (AHA) is a humectant that lightly exfoliates the upper skin layer to provide an even skin tone and smooth skin texture
    • 1.5% Probiotics (Lactococcus Ferment Lysate) fights microbes and foreign particles and also balances skin pH and hydration.
    • 1% Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the skin and gives a subtle glow to the skin

    How to use?

    1. Apply 2-3 drops on to the skin after cleansing.
    2. Dab until the entire product is absorbed into the skin.
    3. Use of moisturiser and sunscreen is compulsory after using this product.
    4. Preferably to be used during the evening.
    5. Use upto 3-4 days a week.

    Perfect and excellent for a great radiance

    Very apt and perfect serum for beginners and skin of colours family. Absolutely zero side effects and exfoliates skin very gently but yes we need a lot of patience and consistency to get the glow . I am in love with this serum and thank you Deconstruct for making such a wonderful formula. I gathered the courage to try this serum after a long long research and finally found the best formulation prepared by Deconstruct. It is a good buy and worth the price you pay but make sure you follow all the instructions of usage before and after applying the serum .
