A chemical peel works by using a chemical — in this case, lactic acid — on bare skin. It removes the top layer of skin (epidermis). Some stronger formulas may also target the middle layers of skin (dermis).

Despite the name, your skin doesn’t noticeably “peel” off. What is noticeable, though, are the effects underneath the removed epidermis: smoother and brighter skin.

Lactic acid is specifically used to treat hyperpigmentationage spots, and other factors that contribute to a dull and uneven complexion. Other benefits of AHAs like lactic acid include improved skin tone and reduced pore appearance.

However, unlike AHAs such as glycolic acid, lactic acid is a bit milder. This makes a lactic acid peel a better choice for sensitive skin. Lactic acid may also be an option if you’ve tried another AHA in the past and found the product too strong.

Skin peels can also cause irritation, rash, and itchiness. These effects are usually mild and improve as your skin gets used to the product. If your side effects persist after the first few applications, discontinue use and see your doctor.

DRAGON FRUIT SMOOTHIE

Also known as pitaya, these fun-looking fruits contain around 60 calories each and are rich in numerous nutrients, including vitamin C, B vitamins, phosphorus, protein, calcium, fiber, and antioxidants. Dragon fruits are proven to lower blood sugar levels as well as blood pressure, strengthen bones and teeth, promote healthy blood and tissue formation, strengthen the immune system, heal bruises and wounds faster and prevent respiratory problems.

Eating dragon fruit can help the body maintain such normal function as ridding the body of toxic heavy metals and improved eyesight. Like other red fruits, dragon fruit contains lycopene, which helps protect against cancer and heart disease.

The flavor is mildly sweet, like a blend of kiwi and pear, and it has a crunchy texture. It’s so  refreshing.

Dragon fruits may not be readily available at your neighborhood grocery, but you can usually find them in Chinatowns around the country. When choosing a dragon fruit, look for a specimen with bright, evenly colored skin. If it has too many brown blotches, or if it has a dry, shriveled stem, it’s probably overripe. If the fruit is very firm, let it ripen a few days until the flesh gives slightly.

How can all these benefits be taken advantage of in this visually beautiful, exotic fruit? While it may seem a little strange at first, it’s easy to get to the fruit. Simply slice lengthwise and either scoop out the flesh or quarter it and peel back the leathery skin.The flesh inside can be white or red, depending on the variety. It’s best eaten chilled, chopped into cubes and added to fruit salad or blended into a refreshing drink or smoothie.
