Healthy Winter Skin
When winter approaches, you need to update some of your skincare products so that you can give your skin a bit more intense care during the colder months. The Obagi Nu-Derm Starter Set should be part of your winter skin care plan so make sure you put it on your Christmas wish-list. Here’s how it can be an investment for your skin.
1. Give Sensitive Skin TLC
Skin is often more sensitive during winter, which is why it is prone to issues such as dryness and redness. You don’t want to use harsh cleansers on your skin and should rather choose a product that will clean away dirt, makeup and environmental pollutants in a soothing way. Obagi Nu-Derm Gentle Cleanser helps to refine and smooth skin, while keeping it free of impurities.
2. Make Skin More Receptive
Using a toner is not just about removing bacteria from the skin – it should also give your skin moisture and restore its PH balance. Obagi Nu-Derm Toner achieves this while also helping your skin better absorb other products so that your skin can achieve a healthier, more youthful complexion. It is also alcohol-free. Remember that irritants such as alcohol can be harmful to skin, especially if it is already sensitive.
3. Fight Pigmentation
Some people experience less dramatic skin pigmentation during winter but don’t let that make you put lightening treatments on the backburner because it could get worse again. Sometimes prescription-strength ingredients are required to tackle pigmentation, so it can be a good idea to choose a product such as Obagi Nu-Derm Clearthat fades various types of pigmentation, such as dark spots, age spots and discoloration.

Obagi Nu-Derm Blender is also a product in the set that helps to target darker areas of the skin. When used with the other products, it brightens skin while providing a radiance that makes you look younger.
4. Change Your Moisturizer
You’ve probably heard how you should switch to a thicker, more nourishing moisturizer in the colder months, but it’s not just to get rid of dryness from the elements. Sometimes bad skin habits, such as having hot baths, can actually strip natural oils in our skin, leaving skin even drier!
Along with cutting down shower times and drinking more fluids to replenish the skin, a moisture-boosting product is essential. Obagi Nu-Derm Hydrate Moisturizer locks in moisture with its hydrating ingredients that include avocado oil. The result is supple and soft skin all day long.
It is important to realize that if you want less pigmented skin, exfoliation should form part of your treatment. By getting rid of dead skin cells, such as with Obagi Nu-Derm Exfoderm, you remove damaged skin cells and improve skin cell turnover, bringing new cells to the surface. The result is a brighter complexion.
6. Wear Sunscreen!
If sunscreen is the last thing on your mind during winter, you’re putting your skin at risk of sun damage. The sun’s rays can still strike your skin, even through clouds, so you want to be sure you’re protecting your skin. This is even more crucial if you are using a lightening cream as it can make your skin more vulnerable to UV rays. Also, sunscreen forms a barrier between the sun and your skin so you maintain your skin lightening results.
Obagi Nu-Derm Sun Shield has an SPF of 50 and guards against both UVA and UVB rays. The great thing is that this sunscreen doesn’t get in the way of your makeup since it has a matte finish to prevent any excess oil, smudges or shine.
The Obagi Nu-Derm Starter Set contains the important elements you need to make your skin flourish in winter, transforming your skin at its cellular level so that you can shed your dull complexion for a healthier glow.
