One of the most impressive ranges of skincare comes from Obagi. The products deliver unparalleled results and address a wide variety of skin concerns, including ageing, uneven pigmentation, acne, dry skin and more. So, which are the best Obagi products for your skin condition? Let’s take a look.
Wrinkles and fine lines are two signs of ageing. They are typically seen around the eyes and often catch us by surprise one day when we look in the mirror. Along with natural ageing, being out in the sun is a culprit, so which products can you use to help deal with wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of ageing?
Obagi Medical Retinol is one of the most popular products, with the company claiming that 90% of those using it see an improvement in wrinkles and fine lines.
There are two strengths available, 0.5 and 1.0 and only a very small amount is required each night for smoothing the appearance of textured skin that is uneven. The Retinol cream is packed with soothing ingredients and is suitable for all skin types, and is best worn at night.
Retinol can dramatically help to reduce irritation thanks to a unique way of encapsulation. It has also been shown to be efficient, yet it doesn’t leave the skin red or flaking.
It is important to take extra care in the sun when using Retinol, as it may cause sensitivity. You can use Obagi Sun Shield SPF 50 to give any type of skin excellent protection when out and about in the sun.
Another popular choice to guard against ageing and help in improving wrinkles and hyperpigmentation is the Nu-Derm FX System. As the name might suggest, this is a complete skin transformation system.
The product penetrates the skin to boost cellular turnover, leaving people looking younger. It is perfect for anyone who wants a smoother appearance, to hydrate the skin and reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
The treatment is available in two different kits based on your skin type: normal/dry and normal/oily.
If you suffer from dull, dry or dehydrated skin, your skin is probably lacking in moisture. General moisturisers only sit on the skin, leaving your skin needing more. So, which are the best Obagi products for dull, dry or dehydrated skin?
As the name suggests, Obagi Hydrate is a great solution for dry skin. The product has a 2-in-1 action. Firstly, the Hydromanil matrix molecules sit on the skin’s surface and act as a barrier to reduce water loss. Secondly, the 3D matrix captures and keeps water while releasing compounds that moisturise the skin.
Obagi Hydrate is excellent for delivering moisture to the skin throughout the day, along with reducing irritation and redness of the skin.
Obagi Daily Hydro-Drops are an excellent choice for around the eye area and help hydrate the skin and soften wrinkles and fine lines, giving healthier-looking skin. The drops do not block pores and are perfect for any skin that is dry, sore or dull looking.
Hyperpigmentation or dark spots can be related to genetics, or they can be brought about due to changes in hormones or excessive exposure to the sun. It shows on the skin as mottled skin, age spots or melasma.
Nu-Derm FX has a product called arbutin, which is a brightening agent.
This makes the Nu-Derm FX skin care system an excellent choice for anyone who wishes to brighten the tone of their skin along with reducing mottled skin when used with Retinol 0.5 or 1.0 for the best effects. The doctor will determine which level of treatment would work best for your skin condition during the consultation.
Nu-Derm FX skin care is also great for age spots, rough skin, wrinkles, fine lines, sallowness and discolouration of the skin. The product is suitable for normal/oily and normal/dry skin.
Acne is typically associated with the younger generation, but it is not unknown for people in their 40s suffer too.
Again, the Nu-Derm FX skin care system is excellent for dealing with acne-prone skin. In addition, it is well-known for restoring skin cells and transforming them into healthy cells, leaving them healthier and younger-looking.
The system comprises a cleanser, toner, Clear FX, Exfoderm, Blend FX, Hydrate, Sun Shield SPF50 and Vitamin A. It is suitable for people with dry or oily skin as there are different options.
The system works by penetrating the skin’s surface and transforming the skin cell functions at a cellular level while correcting any damage within the skin.
