Reverse Sun Damage with Obagi Nu Derm Skin Care Products
As much as you love the sun, it can be your biggest beauty enemy. After being exposed to the harmful UVA and UVB rays, your skin can start to display signs of ageing, such as in the form of pigmentation and wrinkles. The great news is that you can protect against and reverse sun damage with Obagi Nu Derm Skin Care Products so that you look healthier and years younger.
Those spots and patches that crop up on your complexion are frustrating! They’re basically pigment caused by melanin production in the skin, which is frighteningly accelerated by sun exposure. If you are experiencing sun damage in the form of dark spots or discoloration, you can treat it with prescription-strength products, such as those found in the Obagi Nu Derm Transformation Kit. The kit contains ingredients such as hydroquinone that targets pigmentation and clears up your skin. With it you can also successfully treat sallowness, which gives your skin a yellowish tone, and erythema, which produces skin redness.
Shine Like the Sun
Forget about the sun making you look sun-kissed – you can achieve a radiant glow without having to step outside. This is better for you because the sun dries out your skin’s natural oils which can cause dullness. If your skin is dry and dull, you can recharge its brightness by exfoliating your skin. This is a fast way to look younger because dead skin cells will be removed from the surface of your skin to reveal fresher and healthier skin cells. By removing that surface layer of dead skin, exfoliation can therefore also slough away any discoloration.
A good tip when exfoliating is to look for ingredients such as glycolic acid. This is a natural ingredient derived from sugar cane found in Obagi Nu Derm Skin Care Products such as Exfoderm and Exfoderm Forte. These are both lightweight lotions that gently help you scrub your way to clearer, luminous skin.
Slather on Vitamin C!
You know you need to eat Vitamin C in foods, but you also need to apply it to your skin as this antioxidant helps to fight discoloration and wrinkles from sun damage. Vitamin C protects collagen in the skin so that it remains firm and strong, while it’s also a natural brightening agent.
You can find Vitamin C in Obagi Nu Derm Clear Skin Care Products such as the Obagi-C Rx System that fights signs of ageing and skin damage with Vitamin C and hydroquinone. It does this by targeting discoloration as well as lines and wrinkles. The night cream in the system kit contains a rejuvenating blend of Vitamins C and E, two antioxidants that brighten and soothe skin, lavishly correcting skin damage.
The combination of these vitamins is further important because they decrease redness, DNA damage, skin pigmentation and the amount of sunburned cells after UV exposure.
Bin the Burn
When you have followed the above tips and your skin is looking much healthier, you don’t want to sabotage your skin by allowing the sun to cause damage again. You have to use sunscreen religiously every time you’re outside so that you can maintain your gorgeous results. Of course, if you’re using sunscreen daily, you want to be sure that its ingredients are safe for your skin.
Obagi Nu Derm Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50 contains no PABAs, otherwise known as para-amino-benzoic acid. While PABAs prevent skin damage from the harmful rays by reflecting them away from the skin, they can also cause skin irritation and have been linked to cancer. Besides for avoiding any PABAs in its formulation, Obagi Nu Derm Sun Shield contains no fragrance and it isn’t oily on your skin. Rather, it provides a lovely matte finish.
Exposure to the sun can lead to skin damage in the form of wrinkles and discoloration, but you have the power to repair your skin. Obagi Nu Derm Skin Care Products help you shine youthfully while proving that age really is just a number.
