Lytera Skin Brightening Complex: Dermatocare Reviews




Lytera® skin brightening complex is innovative skin lightening product by Allergan (the manufacturer of Botox and Juvederm). While it is pretty high on the pocket, is worth a try for those who like to spend on the premium range of skincare products.

Will it work?

 Lytera is worth trying for oily to combination skin types with uneven skin tone, dark patches, and photo-aging. it can help in reducing dark patches and spots(mild cases only) tanning and uneven skin tone of aging skin with help of:

  • Potent skin lighteners like Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Licorice, Hexylresorcinol, Tetra-peptide 30
  • Anti-oxidants-  Vitamin C, Dunaliella Salina extract 
  • Anti-aging ingredients- Retinol
  • Skin identical moisturising agents like squalene and ethyl linoleate

For which skin type?

 Lytera® skin brightening complex can be used by oily to combination skin. It might not suit dry skin because it is primarily water based formula and it has retinol that might further dry your skin.

Is it safe?

 Yes, it might. You should do a patch test before the first use, because it has irritating ingredients.
