Did you know Cleopatra’s beauty secret was chemical peels?
It is rumored that she kept her skin smooth and radiant by bathing in sour goats milk and honey. The key ingredient to her youthful glow may have been the lactic acid found in milk. Chemical peels that contain lactic acid work by exfoliating the top layer of the skin to reveal the newer layer underneath. They can be used to improve acne, brown spots and overall skin texture. Best results are achieved with a series of peels. Chemical peels are so popular today, it's hard to believe that this trendy cosmetic procedure may be over 2000 years old.
