Lytera Product Overview

There are a number of ways that skin can become discolored – usually it is due to aging, pregnancy, sun damage or health condition. Whatever the cause, there are products available that can help brighten the skin including the brand Lytera Skin Brightening Complex. Lytera is sold online and the website for the product is very informative and professionally produced. It contains before and after photos, several customer testimonials, background information about the manufacturer, Skin Medica and all instructions on how to use the product.

Lytera Skin Brightening Complex is part of a complete Lytera skin care range but can be bought individually at a cost of $125.00 per bottle. It has a 30-day money back guarantee.

Lytera The Product Details


The Lytera Skin Brightening Complex contains a number of active ingredients that help brighten the skin, some of them through mild exfoliation. The Retinol in the product is actually Vitamin A that is known to help to reverse the aging process, while Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is Vitamin C, a natural skin lightener. Glabridin is a powerful antioxidant and Squalane helps improve the lipid content of the skin, further improving skin tone. There are several other non-active ingredients in the formula that are used for moisturizing the skin and allowing it to be applied smoothly.

When Lytera is used as part of the full skin care regime, as recommended, most users see an improvement in 4 weeks. The product can be used daily and optimal results are seen in 6 months of use. While it should not cause harmful side effects and can be used on all skin types, some people may experience mild tingling and irritation during the first period of usage, although these symptoms should dissipate over time.

Lytera The Bottom Line

Lytera Skin Brightening Complex certainly appears to be a good quality product and judging from the ingredients, continued use should result in positive results. However, it is very expensive, particularly if it is being used as part of the complete Lytera range. The effect of the cream would also largely depend on the severity of the skin damage and darkness of the discoloration and, despite the claim it is suitable for all skin types, it is possible that those with very sensitive skin may experience skin irritation.
