Clinically-proven cellular renewal + regeneration, microdermabrasion, antioxidant + intensive moisturizing, anti-aging therapy.
Notably smoother, firmer, rejuvenated skin with the radiance of some post-clinical-procedure glows. Advanced treatment (higher dosage of actives).
First-time users should begin with Illuminants+ Cream: Primary Brilliance Treatment.
This a unique combination of 2 tyrosinase inhibitors, 3 reparative antioxidants and therapy-enhancing + skin-renewing microdermabrasion provides sustained protection against repigmentation.
This multi-phase approach to pigment management delivers:
Clarifies dark spots/patches from aging, sun/light damage, melasma, photoallergies, inflammations (rashes, acne, insect bites) + other hyperpigmentations.
Brightens skin beautifully. Results in clearer, tone-balanced skin that looks younger, notably more vibrant + radiant due to lighter, healthier cells.
Lightening/Brightening: kojic acid plus bearberry leaf-&- vitamin C complex.
Lit Skin: 3 antioxidants - vitamin C, green tea, rice phytic acid = a triad of free radical fighters. Repairs damage from sun + other environmental, oxidizing agents that produce a duller epidermis + dermis - leading to "lit" skin.
Penetration: A common problem of lightening therapy is getting the active ingredients deep enough in the skin to be effective. Unbuffered (undiluted) glycolic acid deposits the tyrosinase inhibitors deeper in the skin while also forcing newer, brighter, healthier cells to the skin's surface.
Sustained Effects: Hyperpigmentations are very stubborn. Armada Post-Procedure Indoor-Outdoor Sun + Light Screen (included with every Cream) prevents repigmentation.
Active pigmentation + primary brightening treatment moisturizer.

Directions for Use:
PGently massage a pea-sized dollop (just enough so it is quickly absorbed) onto face, neck, chest + hands, carefully avoiding mucosal (wet) areas of eyes, nostrils + mouth.
Follow with enclosed Armada Post-Procedure Barrier Cream 50+ (or your choice of an indoor-outdoor Armada Sun + Light Screen) every day, whether indoors or outdoors, and whether or not this Cream has been applied on a given day (starter size included in Illuminants Cream box). Apply liberally before sun exposure, as well as every day, both indoors and outdoors, carefully avoiding membranous areas of eyes and nostrils. Blend well. When outdoors, reapply at least every 1 to 2 hours, after swimming, sweating, and towel drying.
IMPORTANT: Start the Armada Post-Procedure Barrier Cream 50+ daily, immediately. Start using Illuminants+ Cream only 1x-a-week in the beginning. Very slowly increase to 3x-a-week, then 1x-every-other-day, etc. until you achieve 2x-a-day usage (no earlier than week 8 of therapy). DO NOT RUSH.
1ST-TIMERS: Start with Illuminants+ Cream: Primary Brilliance Treatment. After 2x-a-day usage is comfortably achieved, you may progress to Illuminants+ Cream: Advanced Brilliance Treatment (re-start at the beginning: 1x-a-week applications). In the interim, you can use Illuminants+ Face-Hand-Body Lotion for daily facial hydration.
Therapy Notice: Some first-time users of Illuminants+ may experience an initial reaction of a slight redness or mild stinging. With correct use-slowly increasing application frequency, using hypoallergenic support products, and following all instructions carefully-this initial reaction quickly disappears. If the stinging and redness persists, stop use for one week, and restart therapy at the beginning, with 1x-a-week applications.
Sunburn Warning: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
