The Most Underrated Skincare Product

Written By: Kelsie Matthews, L.E.


When people go to create their skincare routine, usually the first thing they reach for is retinol and moisturizer. And while those products are staples for anti-aging, something that often gets overlooked is antioxidants. Antioxidants are so important for skin of any age because they help fight off intrinsic and extrinsic aging factors like pollution, blue light damage, and repair cell damage. Check out Mary’s post to learn more about intrinsic vs extrinsic aging.


My favorite antioxidant is the Lumivive System from SkinMedica. Lumivive has a day time and a night time serum included, so it protects you 24/7. The day time serum is what fights off those extrinsic aging factors that come from exposing our skin to the environment, whereas the night time serum helps increase cell renewal and repair while we sleep. 


Here are some of the key ingredients:

  • Theobroma Cacao Seed Extract
  • Bioflavanoids
  • Mitoquinol Mesylate
  • Niacinamide


One of the biggest complaints I get from my patients is that their skin has become dull and lifeless over the years. The best part about using the Lumivive System is that in as little as 2 weeks, your skin can get its lust back. It seems like in today’s times (especially with summer coming up) the “no makeup” look is in, and this is the product to get your skin absolutely radiant so you don’t need to worry about foundation. 


To incorporate this into your skincare routine here’s what I would suggest:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Tone
  3. Apply Growth Factor (TNS is my fav!!)
  4. Apply Lumivive
  5. Apply HA/moisturizer
  6. SPF always 


It’s almost summer but there’s still time to get your glow on before it’s here! Do your skin a favor and bring it back to life with this POWERHOUSE antioxidant serum!
