On the popular Seattle television program New Day Northwest, Margaret Larson caught up with celebrity beauty expert Mickey Williams to cover summer skin care essentials to keep your skin looking good and being healthy. The beautifully bright Ms. Williams explained that, “Hyperpigmentation has become the new wrinkle.” (Written story continued below the video.)
“Hyperpigmentation has become the new wrinkle”: What does Mickey mean by that? Simply that when it comes to looking your best, it used to be all about addressing fine lines and wrinkles. That is something you can do with some improved moisturization, a bit of good exfoliation (need we say “SilkPeel” anyone?), and perhaps a dash of Botox. But for a younger look, addressing those lines is where most of the focus started and stopped. No one really tried to address a poor skin tone marked by sun spots, age spots, hormonal discoloration and good old-fashioned sun damage. Perhaps that was because there was not much you could do about it other than cover the problem areas over with makeup. Or, perhaps it was because the era of addressing wrinkles – call it the golden botox era – was still so new and fresh.
However, as Mickey explained, “Everyone is figuring out that if you even out your skin tone, it is going to make you look younger, it is going to make you look brighter.” As one dermatologist commented confidentially, “Sometimes after a patient gets botox, they all of a sudden notice those spots that were there before, but now really show up because they don’t have those forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet to distract them.”
Said another way – nothing really makes you look more aged than blotchy, discolored skin or an uneven skin tone.
“So Envy Medical came out with this product called Lumixyl, way before everyone, you know, signed on with BB and CC creams,” Mickey goes on to explain. “And now there are these incredible brightening pads. I like them
because you apply it twice per day, in the morning and night, and what’s great about it is, it has a little woven pattern to the fiber that will exfoliate while you do it.”
“So you are going to see incredible results because Envy are the people behind the whole hyperpigmentation push.” Mickey continued, “They created this ingredient called Decapeptide-12 which will lighten all of the dark spots and even out the skin.”
Intrigued, Margaret commented, “Well it is true, that while I put sunscreen on my face, my hands look 105 years old and need to be lighted up,” exaggerating the conditions of her hands while at the same time, tapping into a concern shared by millions of women around the world.
This is where the Lumixyl brand of products really shines. It is such a gentle, non-irritating set of formulations, as Mickey encouraged, “You can use it on your hands, and on your face and anywhere you want.”
Lumixyl is at the forefront of treating those spotty, freckly discoloration issues with the Stanford University developed power of Decapeptide-12, the star ingredient that Mickey called out as the power behind the brand. In fact,
no other non-prescription skincare regimen has more clinical studies behind it, supporting its efficacy. That efficacy has earned Lumixyl rave reviews across the blogosphere, and growing ranks of fans.
As noted on the label, you can use the pads twice per day for a brighter complexion. The jar of sixty pads will last thirty days. But they are also great for the face, back of hands, chest – wherever the sun has been unkind to your skin. The serum is also rich with hyaluronic acid and aloe, making it an ideal to use after being in the brutal summer sun to both soothe and rehydrate the skin, while giving a brightening boost to stave off photo-damage. At less than $60 per jar, these jars are fast becoming a summer blockbuster!
