Erin’s Christmas Must-Have, Number 7!

Give the gift of Brighter, More Beautiful skin!

The wisdom of aging great, the signs of aging not so much. For yourself or someone special in your life give the gift of Lumixyl Skin Topical Brightening. Receiving top notch reviews for fading “age spots” and improving skins texture, Lumixyl is gentle on your skin while turn back the hands of time.

My dad recently started a new job and has been asking for a good treatment for age spots and helping give his skin a little boost. I can’t wait to give him Lumixyl’s new kit to jump start his New Year with a “bright” new look.

Lumixyl Topical Brightening Sytem

Lumixyl™ is a revolutionary peptide technology developed by researchers at Stanford University to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, including age and sun spots, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and photodamage. The LUMIXYL Brightening System is a revolutionary multi-faceted system that dramatically improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation tolerably and without the side effects associated with prescription Hydroquinone or retinoids.

An innovation in skin brightening technology, the four products in the Lumixyl Brightening System work synergistically to target existing hyperpigmentation and to prevent its recurrence. For most patients these formulations can eliminate the need to use hydroquinone or its bi-products, which are controversial due to their potential side effects. Lumixyl products are proven to be powerful but gentle on skin.

The 4 step system offers a complete approach to brightening that is sustainable, effective and more tolerable than competitive brightening systems that contain hydroquinone. The Lumixyl Topical Brightening System builds on the four products including Active-Prep Cleanser, the Topical Brightening Creme, GlycoPeel 20 Rapid Exfoliating Lotion, and Moisture-Lock Sunscreen SPF 30. The products are ideal for all skin types.

$60-$270
