Jeunesse Global continues seeing strong worldwide sales of Luminesce

Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis had long been known as two of the most accomplished entrepreneurs in the North American direct-marketing industry. In 2009, the couple decided that they were ready to hang up their entrepreneurial hats and enjoy a life of leisurely retirement, hoping to spend more time with their grandkids and each other.

But the highly industrious couple soon ran headlong into the stifling reality of retired life. For people like Ray and Lewis, who thrived on the challenges and the constant stimulation of the fast-paced business-owner lifestyle, the idle hours of retirement quickly proved to be more of a curse than a blessing. To alleviate the boredom and rediscover the meaning that they had lost by abandoning their passion, the couple began selling a few health and beauty products out of their sprawling Florida mansion. Before long, their carnivoran business instincts took hold, and the septuagenarian couple quickly found themselves stepping back into the ring of international business, working up to 60 hours per week on their fledgling enterprise.

They found almost instantaneous success. But most of this is attributable to the formidable skillsets that Ray and Lewis were able to instantly deploy on behalf of their new firm. In particular, Lewis was able to quickly begin developing a portfolio of innovative and in-demand products that met market needs theretofore unanswered.

One of the products that the company was able to quickly bring to market is the now top-selling Luminesce skincare lotion. Luminesce is a solid moisturizer lotion, made with skin-healing ingredients like aloe vera. But Luminesce takes things to the next level in restoring beauty and youth. Developed by some of the top clinical dermatologists in the country, Luminesce contains a special scientifically developed molecule known as APT-200, which is able to sharply reduce wrinkles, prevent new ones from forming and restore youthful skin elasticity that has been naturally lost to the aging process.

Luminesce is designed for busy professionals that need top-quality skincare but who may not have the time or the money to receive it. Requiring just one short application each day, Luminesce keeps skin moist and young-looking all day long.
