The Lexli 4-Step System
So, you're interested in learning the simple way to get great looking skin. You’ve come to the right place. It’s as easy as 1-2-3-4.
The first step of any skincare regimen is cleansing, which can be done with any mild cleanser.
In order to keep the skin healthy and looking good, use enough product to eliminate any grime, sebum, dead cells,
make-up and other particulate matter that may build up on your skin after a day’s exposure to the environment, thereby encouraging
bacterial growth and skin cell decay.
This doesn’t need to be a complex ritual. Unfortunately, there are a lot of companies ready and willing to sell
you numerous different cleansing products, each of which claims a different method to achieve the same purpose. Depending upon the
quality of the cleansing agent and your skin type, one product is usually sufficient to do the job.

The second and most important step in the skincare process is exfoliation. Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells and debris (keratin) from the skin’s surfaces that otherwise
covers up the new, living, vibrant skin cells underneath. When keratin builds up, it can clog your pores.
Removing the keratin promotes new collagen production, resulting in healthier-looking skin.
A popular skincare myth is that exfoliation can occur with products that contain "gentle exfoliants" such as microbeads or microspheres.
The truth is that there is no gentle way of removing the thickened layers of keratin. For effective exfoliation, skin stimulation and rejuvenation to occur,
exfoliation must be done by a chemical reaction or by vigorous mechanical dermabrasion. Lexli's AloeGlyC® Renewing Exfoliant is a patented maximum strength,
over-the-counter, exfoliating product that provides the best at-home exfoliation possible while still being gentle on the skin.

Every cell in the body needs water to remain healthy. Unfortunately, skin constantly loses water through dehydration and evaporation.
One of the myths in the beauty industry is that when water is applied to the surface of the skin via a particular product, the water will be absorbed, thus increasing its moisture. The truth is that when water is applied to the external surface of your skin, it isn’t absorbed. The only way skin moisture content can be kept optimal is to prevent evaporation and loss of its own internal water. Lexli moisturizers keep the water content of your skin at optimal levels.
Our skincare products do this through the use of humectants—molecules that hold more than their own weight of water within their molecular and chemical structure. When applied to the skin, humectants concentrate water, minimizing evaporation. The presence of water on the skin surface plasticizes and smooths the uppermost layers of the skin and temporarily soothes the discomfort associated with dry, tight skin.
However, moisturizers that simply bind water at the surface do not completely solve the problem of dry skin. Rather, dry skin is more dramatically improved by increasing internal water-binding capacity. Lexli's moisturizers can increase water retention in both the upper and lower layers of the skin, not only by preventing evaporation, but also by stimulating the synthesis of essential skin proteins and oils.

The final step in any proper skincare regimen is protection. Environmental factors are major contributors to skin damage and it is important to protect exposed skin.
The major culprit is ultraviolet light. When exposed to the elements, we recommend protective clothing and a sunscreen or sun block with an SPF of at least 15. Numerous studies have shown that sunscreens with an SPF factor of greater than 15 don't provide much additional protection. Sun blocks listing a higher SPF usually contain a white zinc or titanium oxide, which offers minimal protection against ultraviolet light damage.
