For several years, the skincare industry has been driven by the latest fads, trends and celebrity endorsements. Popular culture has dictated that several times a year, a new “miracle ingredient” will burst onto the scene, promising unrealistic results. Just as quickly as the miracle ingredient grows in popularity, it is inevitably replaced by the next big thing.

A trendsetter in the beauty market, innovative skincare brand Lexli International is leading the way with a line of skincare products supported by scientific research and formulated with a base of certified organic, pharmaceutical-grade aloe vera, one of the most clinically effective natural ingredients in the world. Through meticulous research and development, scientific advances, professional expertise and the understanding of a customer’s well-being, Lexli is continuing to change the world of beauty.

Skincare cannot be mentioned without the name Dr. Ahmed Abdullah, board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of Lexli. Dr. Abdullah is among the pioneers who began the practice of utilizing pharmaceutical-grade aloe in their plastic surgery practice for the treatment of skin damage, including burns, scars and lesions. “When it comes to skin care, ‘less is more’ is a mantra repeated by experts, no matter how often new and improved technologies are introduced,” says Dr. Abdullah. “Long known for its healing properties, aloe vera has been proven to produce restorative and medicinal effects. Lexli offers results-driven products with high technology formula and a cocktail of essential ingredients to ensure optimal skin health post-treatment and beyond.”


Why Aloe Vera?

Aloe Vera is a nutritional powerhouse, it contains over 75 nutrients such as minerals, amino acids, and a number of vitamins including B12, enzymes and more. Aloe Vera is currently the only known natural source of vitamin B12. Key health benefits and uses of aloe vera:
  • The common advantages of aloe vera include moisturizing dry skin and maintaining the healthy skin
  • A natural anti-inflammatory, aloe cleanses gently and penetrates deep into the tissue to heal damaged skin
  • Products that contain aloe vera contain high concentration of a curative agent which is useful for the skin
  • It is the best moisturizer that keeps the skin flexible by providing oxygen to the skin cells improving the synthesis and strength of skin’s tissue
  • Lexli product formulations also utilize vitamins and other proven effective ingredients to achieve healthier, younger-looking skin regardless of skin type, tone or age

All skincare products start with a base. Most over-the-counter and physician dispensed moisturizers and exfoliants are water-based. In fact, 99% of the skincare products on the market today start with water as the base then add other ingredients to make the product. There’s just one problem – not only does water dilute the active ingredients, your skin cannot absorb water.

The Lexli System

The Lexli Skincare Collection is based on a simple four-step system designed to rejuvenate and restore the skin back to health. Lexli’s unique formulation uses 100% pure pharmaceutical-grade aloe vera as the base of each product. According to Dr. Abdullah, “skin care doesn’t need to be a complex ritual. There are many companies who claim different methods to solve common skin challenges like acne or wrinkles. We believe good skin care is more about frequent, preventative care. The key is basic cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and protecting.”

Step One: Cleanse

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.
  • Aloe-Based Cleansing Lotion
Lexli’s Aloe-Based Cleansing Lotion is designed to unclog pores and remove impurities. The special ingredients work to cleanse the skin and leave it feeling soft, silky and refreshed. A noticeable improvement in the suppleness of the skin can be achieved soon after the very first use. Lexli’s Aloe Based Cleansing Lotion is pH-balanced, non-greasy, and soothing for sensitive and traumatized skin.

Step Two: Exfoliate

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 skins surface 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.

According to Dr. Abdullah, “a popular skincare myth is that exfoliation should 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, Dr. Abdullah recommends skin stimulation by either a chemical reaction or by vigorous mechanical dermabrasion.
  • Aloe-Based AloeGlyC® Renewing Exfoliant
Lexli’s Aloe-Based AloeGlyC Renewing Exfoliant combines Aloe Vera, Glycolic Acid and L-Ascorbic Acid beads (Vitamin C) to help remove dead skin cells while activating collagen production – the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. The process is virtually as effective as a doctor’s office peel and results in fewer fine lines and wrinkles and enhanced skin texture and clarity. AloeGlyC’s tiny Vitamin C beads also function as biological cofactors and antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental damage. AloeGlyC is gentle to the skin, yet extremely effective. With consistent use, AloeGlyC can minimize pore size, diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs ofpremature aging; diminishes blemishes and reduces the potential for future breakouts; evens the overall skin tone and skin clarity; and helps fight dryness.

Step Three: Moisturize

Lexli’s skincare products help the skin keep its water content at optimal levels 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 smoothes the uppermost layers of the skin and temporarily soothes the discomfort associated with dry, tight skin. 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.
  • Aloe-Based Tone and Balance
This gentle skin toner contains natural, moisturizing humectants that restores the skin’s natural pH, removes any traces of cleanser or skin cell build-up, and adds moisture without causing surface dryness. Lexli’s Aloe-Based Tone and Balance leaves the skin feeling refreshed, hydrated and ready for the application of moisturizer. It is alcohol-free and can be used to also calm the irritation caused by shaving or waxing, as well as irritation caused by sun exposure.

  • Aloe-Based Night Moisturizer
Lexli’s Aloe-Based Night Moisturizer is a nourishing, humectant-enriched cream designed to replenish the loss of moisture within the skin’s tissues. The strong humectants and masking agents, such as collagen, work overnight to preserve and restore the skin’s natural moisture level and revive the skin’s tension and firmness..

Step Four: Protect

The final step in any proper skincare regimen is protection against environmental factors. Exposed skin can be damaged by ultraviolet light, which can contribute to premature aging of the skin.
  • Aloe-Based Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 for Normal to Dry Skin
Lexli’s Aloe-Based Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 is a light, non-greasy formula that moisturizes and conditions to leave the skin feeling extraordinarily soft and comfortable throughout the day. It protects your skin from the environmental factors that cause premature aging with an added SPF 15 which helps to shield the skin from harmful UVB and UVA rays.
