Lytera or Advanced Pigment Corrector – which is better?

Hi Dr. Irwin, I know that you are a fan of the Skin Ceuticals products, and I'm wondering what your opinion is of their new Advanced Pigment Corrector? And, how would you compare it to Skin Medica's Lytera? (I think that I had a reaction to Lytera, so I'm eager to try a different product.) Thanks so much!

I’m a fan of some SkinCeuticals products – especially their antioxidants! 🙂 On this topic though, I’m reading through all the science I can find on these this week and should have some thoughts to share next week.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
