First Light Therapy


This exfoliating serum helps smooth away discolored surface cells, unclog pores, banish breakouts and fade UV-induced pigmentation. Perfect for sensitive skin with redness, inflamed breakouts or sensitivity. Its based on 10% Azelaic Acid.

  • Who should use it:

    This multi-functional serum by Elizabeth Renee addresses anyone who has multiple skin issues. It starts working immediately to smooth away discolored surface cells and brighten pigmentation.  It unclogs oxidized sebum (reducing blackheads). It helps banish breakouts caused by p-acne bacteria.  It rapidly fades UV-induced pigmentation and age spots and calm redness for rosacea prone skin. First light Therapy quickly reveals a clearer, brighter, blemish-free complexion.

  • Why you need it:

    Many exfoliating serums can be too harsh for red or sensitive skin.  Azelaic acid found in this serum is especially effective for reducing redness and calming the inflammation that accompanies problem skin breakouts.

    But... if you're not breaking out but want to focus on reducing sun induced pigmentation, a course of this exfoliating serum is for you.

    Or... maybe your just too sensitive for other exfoliating serums.  First Light Therapy will gently lift off those dull dehydrated cells in a gentler fashion than glycolic, salicylic or even lactic acid.  It is also a perfect fit for skin that is sensitive from dry environmental factors.


  • What's inside:

    • AZELAIC ACID - an amazing ingredient produced by yeast cells that naturally live on healthy skin. It brightens skin tone while visibly improving the evenness of skin texture and reducing blemishes. It's a multi-functional gentle exfoliant that works for all skin types and also acts as an effective antioxidant. This 10% Azelaic Acid Formula is a high grade form in a lightweight cream-gel formula. It is very effective to refine the skin, clear surface congestion, and fade away stubborn dark spots.
    • LILAC STEM CELLS - Provide superb purifying and brightening while regulating oil production. It minimizes dark spots caused by inflammatory blemishes; reduces the intensity, number and surface area of irritated and discolored spots from old blemishes. It visibly reduces oiliness and shine, diminishing breakouts and promoting brighter, clearer-looking skin.
    • RED ALGAE - Works rapidly on UV-induced spots and age spots.
    • Vitamin C - controls free radicals, inhibiting sebum oxidation and improving clarity and elasticity.
    • Clinically tested oligosaccharides - a gentle natural alternatives to Retinols: stimulating collagen synthesis and UV protection.
    • Red algae - targets UV-induced pigmentation, age spots, ashy, dull, gray and glycated complexions.
  • How to use:

    Apply 2 pumps in the morning and evening before other serums. Make sure to let dry for a minute. (Brush your teeth, get dressed or answer an email.) Applying other serums or moisturizers too soon will raise the pH of your skin, effectively deactivating the acidic benefits of First Light Therapy.

    Dry skins will benefit from this serum as well, perfect for fighting pigmentation - although dry skins may need to include a more emollient moisturizer at night over our niacinamide rich First Light Lotion. Oilier skins should consider First Light Lotion as their go to moisturizer.

    After initiating a brightening skin program for a month or so you can switch to using First Light Products as your daytime regime.  At night you may return to Retinols or AHAs to exfoliate at night.  Continue First Light Therapy during the day, followed by C & E Antioxidant Serum.
