- LUMIVIVE™ DAY in the morning, LUMIVIVE™ NIGHT before bed.
- Facial area.
- Skin tone, redness, discolouration.
- Overall glow and radiance.
- Blue light and pollution protection.
This is a two-step, two-bottle purchase, meant to fight against the newest attackers on our skin: blue light and air pollution. It has undergone 12 clinical studies with 300 patients. As a result, it was proven to reduce redness and discolouration in as little as 12 weeks.
Blue light is being recognized as an aging factor now that many of us spend hours in front of computer screens and devices (they emit the blue wavelength of light). You may have heard of blue light in the news lately, since it also affects sleep cycles.
In essence, blue light causes photoaging, similar to how the sun’s rays damage skin cells. We wear SPF to protect from the sun. In our modern times, we also need specialized skincare to protect us from blue light during the day.
To aid healing from blue light and air pollution on our skin, the nighttime formula in the LUMIVIVE™ combo is specifically made to repair the skin’s daytime damage, overnight.
A few helpful things to know about this product:
This combo-product is meant to provide additional support to your morning and evening skincare routine. It won’t replace the need for good hydrators, moisturizers, sunscreen or other specific treatments you’re using to treat signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, acne and so on.

Notable skin care ingredients:
LUMIVIVE™ DAY Defense Serum
Using SkinMedica’s unique formula, called ENVAILLE™ technology, the first portion of this anti-aging system is designed to help skin resist damage from pollutants and UV light, which it faces throughout the day. Its ingredients include:
Theobroma cacao seed extract – basically chocolate beans, this plant is believed to support the mitochondria in skin cells, which gives them energy. It is also an antioxidant to protect against pollution and UV damage, by way of flavanols. In this context, it is used for blue light protection.
Alteromonas ferment extract – a plant-based skin hydrator and skin soother, taken from deep sea microorganisms.
Bioflavonoids – found in fruits and vegetables, these are antioxidants with anti-aging benefits.
It also uses hydrators like squalane, glycerin and panthenol. It contains shea butter as a moisturizing ingredient. Further antioxidants in its formula include vitamin E, with plant based extracts like green tea (camellia sinensis leaf extract), Indian gooseberry (physalis angulata extract), ‘survivor’ micro-algae containing beta-carotene and vitamin B12 (dunaliella salina extract), plus more.
LUMIVIVE™ NIGHT Revitalize Complex
Together, the ingredients below comprise SkinMedica’s ENVIGORATE™ technology, made specifically to reinvigorate skin that has been disturbed by environmental pollutants and photo damage. It aims to deliver a glowing complexion by helping the skin repair itself while you sleep. It includes:
Mitoquinol mesylate – an antioxidant that is believed to help skin by supporting the mitochondria within cells, to reduce free radical damage.
Mirabilis jalapa callus extract – a flower extract that helps to build the skin’s resiliency, especially if it is sensitive.
Pentapeptide-34 trifluoroacetate – a bioengineered collagen precursor (peptide) that specifically aids in the skin’s production of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 is an antioxidant used as an anti-aging ingredient in many skin care products.
It also contains other antioxidants and skin-boosting conditioners such as vitamin E, acetyl tetrapeptide-2, glycerin and lysolecithin.
