SkinMedica Lytera Skin Brightening Complex

The SkinMedica Lytera Serum boasts an advanced formula which works to improve the condition of the skin, to leave it looking bright and radiant. The serum has been designed to combat skin discoloration and dark spots, while drastically improving the condition and texture of the skin.

The infusion of Niacinamide and Squalane work to moisturize the skin, while Retinol encourages skin exfoliation to eliminate rough, dry skin and leave the complexion looking healthy and radiant.  The combination of TetrahexyldecylAscorbate (Vitamin C), Hexylresorcinol and Tetrapeptide-30 promote a clear, bright complexion over time, to leave you with more even, radiant skin.

Key Ingredients


The addition of Niacinamide (vitamin B3) works to hydrate the skin as well as strengthening the barrier function to promote an even looking skin tone.

Ethyl Linoleate

Ethyl Linoleate is an essentialfattyacid responsible for strengthening the skin’s barrier function, as well as promoting a more even, radiant complexion.


Squalene is responsible for supporting the skin barrier and preventing moisture loss as it mimics the lipid content of the skin to maintain optimal moisture levels.


Retinol is derived from vitamin A and helps to smooth and exfoliate dry, thick and rough skin to promote a more even, bright complexion.

Dunaliella Salina Extract

These natural, colorless carotenoids of phytoene and phytofluene have been extracted from unicellular algae and help to protect against free radicals while brightening and smoothing the skin.


Hexylresorcinol helps to brighten and smooth the skin, to leave you with an incredibly radiant complexion.


Tetrapepdide-30 promotes a bright, radiant complexion.


4-Ethoxybenzaldehyde works to even the complexion, minimize darkspots and brighten the skin.

Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract

Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract is a natural extract from Licorice root. The highly effective antioxidant helps to protect against free radicals, while brightening and smoothing the skin

How Do I Use The SkinMedica Lytera Skin Brightening Complex?

The SkinMedica Lytera Skin Brightening Complex has been designed to be used in the same way as a serum. The Skin Brightening Complex should be applied to cleansed, toned skin each morning and evening, before applying a moisturizer. Simply massage into the face, neck and chest to reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion.
