DAY POTION - Skin Illuminating Antioxidant Concentrate
THE ABSENCE OF RADIANCE CAN DIMINISH BEAUTY AT ANY AGE
Healthy skin has an unmistakable lit-from-within quality that can dim with time. Here's your chance to bring it back while transforming the way skin looks, feels, and fights future visible signs of aging. Introducing DAY POTION - Skin Illuminating Antioxidant Concentrate. Formulated to help create visibly improved skin radiance and a smoother, stronger surface to reflect light long-term by globally addressing multiple factors that can dull down and signal the appearance of aging skin.
Years of research and trials in the making, this result-driven antioxidant + visible tone brightening potion not only gives you a healthier look almost immediately, but it helps to visibly improve skin luminosity long-term with some of the most potent antioxidants available from science and nature today. These work synergistically on multiple levels to comprehensively combat daily assaults from pollution, smoke, climate stress, UV rays, and other environmental aggressors to help keep skin in a more ideal environment to thrive.
The Skin Concerns
The biggest factor known to cause close to 90% of what we see as visible skin aging is environmental damage. Every day, damaging impurities with fine, microscopic particles accumulate on skin, weakening it and increasing its sensitivity. These factors of daily life lead to skin inflammation and oxidative stress which play significant roles in accelerating the aging process of skin.
Research has shown that as early as our twenties, our skin's barrier and defenses against external assaults, oxidative stress, and transepidermal water loss declines. Studies have also shown that those who live in cities tend to show signs of aging faster than those outside as increased pollution damages collagen and the skin barrier while causing inflammation to accelerate skin aging. Although skin may be temporarily youthful-looking on the surface, environmental damage accumulates and eventually reveal itself in the form of dark spots, large pores, dullness, lines, and loss of elasticity.
Traditional topical vitamin C such as L-Ascorbic Acid is often used in antioxidant serums meant to help protect skin. However, it is only truly effective at acidic pH which can make skin more sensitized and make sensitive skin worse. It is also highly unstable and can degrade too quickly to become PRO-oxidants and cause more damage to skin.
To combat against as many as 200+ chemicals from the environment that can damage the health and beauty of your skin, it needs a second line of defense that can "environmentally-proof" it against damage. It's a documented fact that the most effective damage prevention requires multiple synergistic and specific antioxidants that can work together for comprehensive multi-level results. Day Potion offers our most advanced skin-defense complex with a 3-tiered, microbiome-friendly approach to visible skin health and radiance, now and long-term, that include
I. COMPREHENSIVE & MORE STABLE ANTIOXIDANT DEFENSE
II. SYNERGISTIC VISIBLE SKIN BRIGHTENING + TONE-CORRECTING
III. CRUCIAL SKIN BARRIER STRENGTHENING & REPAIR
Skin is better able to combat harmful external substances, reduce crucial water loss through the epidermis, and begin to look and feel like firmer, healthier skin.

FULL LIST OF PURPOSEFUL INGREDIENTS
*FROM ORGANIC / SUSTAINABLY-SOURCED / FAIR-TRADE FARMING
- Meadowfoam Seed Oil - similar to skin's own sebum, it is one of the most effective oils to help prevent moisture loss at the same time, helping to keep skin at a sweet spot of not being too oily or too dry. It helps deliver calming, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant benefits deep into the epidermis, and studies have found its compounds can help inhibit enzymes that break down collagen in the skin. Its high stability also allows it to extend the potency and freshness of other ingredients it works with and allows it great affinity with the skin for enhanced protection without greasiness or associated negative effects.
- Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate - a new generation stable and bioavailable form of vitamin C with greater affinity for skin, improved stability against heat and oxidation, and found to be 50 times more powerful than traditional vitamin C. Beyond its protective antioxidant abilities, it can help to promote collagen production for firmer-looking skin, even the look of skin tone, promote hyaluronic acid production, and enhance the abilities of other antioxidants.
- Safflower Oil - its high level of linoleic acid helps to balance moisture and sebum levels in skin while helping to decrease inflammation and promote healing. It's also abundant in vitamin E and can potentially help decrease the damaging effects of the environment on skin.
- Licorice Extract - well-known to help visibly reduce hyperpigmentation as it works to inhibit tyrosinase (melanin and dark spot catalyst) and free radical production. It can help your skin produce higher levels of antioxidants to improve skin’s defenses against UV and environmental damage both during and after exposure. It’s a potent anti-inflammatory that helps to reduce irritated or inflamed skin conditions that lead to redness, bumps, and skin aging.
- Muskmelon Seed Oil* - super-rich in omega-6 essential fatty acids which your skin barrier relies on to help it function properly. These functions include decreasing trans-epidermal water loss, antimicrobial activity, and decreasing inflammation among others. It's also abundant in protective non-enzymatic and enzymatic antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase (SOD).
- Tocopherol - based on available research so far, skin scientists believe these have numerous benefits and are essential to skin cells due to their ability to delay damage from free radical activities. These antioxidants have the power to reduce inflammation and attack specific free radicals that cause inflammation. Their antioxidant powers may help reverse damage due to free radicals and potentially prevent wrinkles while making the skin appear more youthful.
- Lingonberry Seed Oil* - offers super antioxidant properties with some of the highest levels of Type-A Procyanidins, gamma linoleic acids, B-vitamins and minerals to help improve skin tone, fight inflammation, help maintain moisture balance, and helps form skin-essential enzymatic antioxidant superoxide dismutase. It's a potent source for both omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids that your skin can't produce on its own but needs to maintain its health.
- Pomegranate Seed Oil* - contains high amounts of the rare omega 5 fatty (Punicic) Acid ( a compound unique to pomegranate oil) with smaller molecular structure that allows it to penetrate deeply to offer strong anti-inflammatory effects as well as superior moisture-retaining and softening benefits. Studies have shown that pomegranate seed oil can encourage the production of keratinocytes, which help fibroblasts stimulate cell turnover. What this means for your skin is increased barrier function to defend against the effects of UV damage, water loss, harmful bacteria, and more. It is also rich in antioxidant and polyphenols to offer additional natural protection benefits and promote collagen production for smoother skin.
- Apricot Kernel Oil - contains quickly absorbed, skin-identical antioxidant which is especially soothing to skin.

It stimulates crucial glutathione and studies show significant improvement in skin complexion of subjects. In addition, Ethyl Linoleate, a smart synergistic ingredient from the purple shamrock, provides skin with multiple benefits. It's a stable form of linoleic acid (a crucial essential fatty acid for proper skin barrier functions and health) that provides all of the linoleic acid benefits for skin with improved skin permeability. It enhances skin brightening effects, helps maintain the stratum corneum acid mantle, and is shown to inhibit the proinflammatory biomarker NF-kB.
- Gamma Oryzanol - derived from rice bran oil, it is a potent source of Ferulic Acid. Originally used by the Japanese for beauty rituals in the 1960s, research shows that it has the ability to intercept UV rays at the surface, protect skin lipids from oxidation and help to prevent age spots and discoloration.
- Argan Oil - its unsaturated fatty acids content helps improve skin moisture through ceramide synthesis and helps to decrease skin inflammation. It also contained antioxidant properties that not only protect but help improve brightening when formulated with other specific skin brighteners.
- Astaxanthin - Many believe this ingredient is many be more potent than Vitamin C for skin protection and repair abilities. Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful carotenoid antioxidants that help protect skin from damaging UV rays. A study showed that it helps improve DNA repair capacity of cells exposed to UV radiation. Besides neutralizing free radical damage, Astaxanthin helps to calm inflammation and helps improve the look of wrinkles.
- HydraSynol DOI/Isosorbide Dicaprylate - ECOCERT ingredient that is one of the best solutions for improving skin hydration and barrier homeostasis today. This smart, multi-targeted skin hydrator and barrier builder helps to move moisture where it is needed and is very effective in providing long-lasting and controlled hydration for up to 48 hours.

- Coenzyme Q10 - gives cells needed energy to help repair, regenerate and remove toxins. It helps to stop production of tyrosinase that triggers melanin production and helps prevent hyperpigmentation. Luminous and healthy-looking skin is known to contain high levels of Q10. It helps support the production of collagen and is also a potent antioxidant that helps defend skin from unstable and damaging free radicals from the environment and sun exposure.
- Hyalurosome - an advanced delivery technology of moisturization and visible skin-plumping effects that far exceed the extent and length of time of traditional Hyaluronic Acid. This patented hyaluronate time-released delivery system of signaling hyaluronate fragments (HAF) that has been thoroughly demonstrated to induce HA filling of the epidermis and upper epidermis. This results in much longer and more sustained skin hydration that outperforms traditional hyaluronic acid and superficial filling of the skin complimentary to hyaluronate filler injections.
- Red Raspberry Seed Oil* - a potent source of vitamins, phytosterols, and linoleic acid/omega-6 that work to enhance proper functioning of skin's crucial barrier. Studies have also shown it may provide UV protection similar to SPF 28. Even so, please continue to wear your sun protection.

I have struggled for years with reactive skin that is also dry. I'm always nervous trying new products because I never know how my skin will respond. It has been almost three months since my first time trying Day Potion and it has been amazing. Absolutely no reactions and my skin glows. It truly feels wonderful! I honestly look forward to putting it on every morning!!
As a skin care connoisseur, I am always looking for the next best thing to add a glow or extra luminosity to my skin. Thankfully I discovered the Day Potion because my search is finally over. The Day Potion gives my skin a boost of luminosity and comfort throughout the day that radiates youthfulness. Given its effective and clean ingredients, I feel confident that I have found something very special.
I’ve been using Day Potion for several months, and it has improved the skin on my face. I’ve found a little goes a long way, half a dropper is sufficient for my face especially if I warm it in my hands first, it spreads so nicely and smoothly. Some of my dark sun spots are fading, and Day Potion makes my skin feel calmer. Day Potion and Clean Potion helped me through a very long and bad psoriasis flare. These products helped to heal my skin, and made me feel more confident to show my face on Zoom. Brendan knows his stuff. The high quality of these products is evident in the results: glowing and happy, calm skin. Love the attention and care that goes into these Lex and Jong products. Thank you, Brendan!
I have been using Day Potion for 2 months, and I love this product. Every day I mist on a hydrating toner, press a dropper of Day Potion onto my face and décolletage, then close with moisturizer and SPF. It is so simple and effective. My skin is sensitive, with occasional acne and signs of aging and prone to hyperpigmentation (age: mid-40s). The Day Potion makes my skin glow but not oily, skin texture is so even and supple and bouncy. I wish the day will come when I can go out without a mask so people can see how great my skin looks. Lex & Jong is a wonderful and ethical company, I’m looking forward to trying more products from Lex & Jong.
