Hi guys! We’ve been getting a lot of skincare questions and blog post requests, so we’re going to start sharing more beauty-related posts in 2017! We’re always sharing our routines and favorites on instagram stories, but we’ll make it a point to share more on the blog as well!
Today, we’re talking about the SkinMedica serum we’re both currently using – their 2.0 Lytera Pigment Correcting Serum. This is a pigment correcting serum that restores your skin to an even shade and helps improve hyper-pigmentation. Bonus: it also aids in preventing future discoloration! From spending too much time in the sun during our teenage years, to having kids and the hormones that come along with pregnancy, our skin has suffered some discoloration. We both have some sun spots/damage, and we’re doing everything in our power to prevent any further harm to our skin as we age.
Since this serum is new in our routines, we were excited that so many of you messaged us and commented on instagram telling us how much you love it as well as other SkinMedica products!
Meggan: My chest is a major problem area for me. The color is uneven and looks blotchy – you can tell I’ve sunburned it many times over the years (ugh!). I’ve mentioned this before, but I have been doing IPL treatments on my face and recently had two done on my chest (going back for a third before my wedding). I was happy to hear that this serum helps optimize results of laser treatments, along with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and prescription care products. I called my laser technician before I started using (just to double check it was okay!) and she actually recommended using it. I’m excited to see results and start evening out my complexion – I will keep you guys posted!
Brooke: As I get closer to the big 3-0 (next year!), I’ve noticed some faint sun spots starting to show up on my lower cheeks/jawline. Admittedly they aren’t terrible, but sun spots only get worse over time and that’s not something I’m looking forward to, so I am really excited to have added this serum to my morning + night routine (I apply after cleansing in the morning and after my serum at night – always before applying moisturizer). The before & after photos are what really sold me, and I’m always extremely happy with products created by a dermatologist. The clinical results showed that Lytera 2.0 reduces the appearance of hyper-pigmentation and prevents future discoloration, so this is certainly a product I needed to add to my routine. I also suffer from redness, so this moisturizer is next on my list to try!
Since we’re so happy with the product, we’ve decided to host a giveaway (yaaasss!). We will be gifting one of you a bottle of the 2.0 Lytera Correcting Serum + all you need to do to enter is leave a comment below sharing why you’d like to try the product. XO
