Out, damn spot!

Sun spots and discoloration mar your complexion and make you look older. Exuviance OptiLight Tone Corrector uses “active science” and proven botanical ingredients to treat and prevent an uneven tone.
According to Neostrata scientists, “Patented NeoGlucosamine gently exfoliates to break up pigment clusters, while Retinol and a stable form of Vitamin C help reduce the intensity of existing spots. The active ingredient in Turmeric and a special blend of Alpine Plants help prevent new spots from forming. Optical diffusers create an instant, all-over brightness.”
Excess sun exposure of the years can cause dark spots and discoloration on your face hands and décolleté. Exuviance OptiLight Tone Corrector is a fabulous alternative for to use hydroquinone or is sensitive to it. Hydroquinone has been banned in Europe.
We really like Neostrata products because they work. They give us great results and beautiful skin at fraction of the cost of similar products.

Out damn spot!

Dark spots, sunspots, hyperpigmentation – call them what you will, but women hate them. They muddy otherwise clear skin and make women look older and more fatigued. 

Sun exposure, acne, and hormones are the worst offenders when it comes to causing annoying and hard-to-remove spots.  Costly laser sessions are not always the best treatment.  We prefer special creams with peptides or new enzyme creams designed to naturally lighten dark spots.

The enzyme in Luminaze is harvested from a mushroom that grows on trees high in the Swiss Alps.  According to the company, “it was noticed that the bark surrounding these mushrooms was decolourized. The same properties that were found by researchers to lighten the color of the bark resulted in the breakdown of melanin in the skin for a dramatic improvement in the appearance of dark spots from sun and aging.”
The enzyme in Luminaze targets melanin and breaks it down, but it doesn’t affect skin in any other way.  According to company, Luminaze is targeted and effective, but also gentle and safe. We agree; it feels great and it works quickly to fade stubborn spots. And unlike hydroquinone, it has no known harmful side effects.
This is one of the most effective treatments for hyperpigmentation at any price we have seen.

Banish stubborn age or sun spots safely!

 We have tried lightening products galore and we have a found a few good ones. But our testers who have stubborn age and sun spots told us that elure works better and faster than any other line we have seen – and we have seen them all.

Too many skin brightening and lightening cream regimes promise too much and deliver too little. Some may fade spots just a little. Some creams containing hydroquinone can even make hyperpigmentation worse, or in rare cases, even turn skin blue!
The new elure Advanced Skin Lightening program is a three-part system designed to safely erase hyperpigmentation, also called sun spots or age spots. And serious clinical trials show it works on all types of skin in 28 days!
The night cream and lotion are price to sell for $150 each, and the cleanser sells for $35. Costly laser treatments may or may not work, depending on the cause of the pigmentation and the operator’s skill. And prescription creams that contain high doses of hydroquinone can have serious side effects.
There are three products in the régime: Advanced Lightening Lotion, Advanced Lightening Night Cream, and Advanced Facial Wash.
elure contains lignin peroxidase, a naturally-occurring enzyme derived from a tree fungus that actually breaks down melanin, the substance in skin that causes spots and discoloration. It has been proven safe in clinical testing and does not appear to cause irritation, skin thinning, or other undesirable side-effects. I tried the line on my very sensitive and dry skin, and found it pleasant to use. I experienced no burning or dying.
