Steps to Beautiful Skin
The Obagi Nu Derm Kit is the perfect way to start using the Obagi Nu Derm system to reduce the signs of aging, clear your skin and help reverse sun damage. The great thing about it is that it contains products that are of prescription strength, full of medicinal properties to renew your skin.
These are the steps to follow when using the products in your starter kit:
Prep Your Skin
Before correcting your skin, you want to prepare it so that it is open to the healing effects of other products. You do this by washing your face with the foaming gel cleanser and then using the toner. When applying the toner, do so with a cotton ball and don’t rinse it off.
Correct Your Skin
Now that your skin is properly cleansed, the Obagi Clear product should be applied all over your face – don’t forget your hairline and ears! Obagi Clear helps to smooth out your skin so that it’s even and beautiful. It also contains hydroquinone to clear away pigmentation that can stem from various factors, such as exposure to the sun or hormonal imbalances, and which makes you look older. After application, wait a few minutes and then reapply a second coating over areas of your face where your skin is uneven or blotchy.
After using Clear, apply the Exfoderm Forte. This is a lotion that contains exfoliating ingredients such as lactic and glycolic acids. These get rid of any rough or dry areas of skin. The reason why it should be applied after Clear is because it actually enhances the activity of hydroquinone. You want to apply a thin layer of Exfoderm Forte all over your face (avoiding skin in the eye area).
Clear it up
Apply the Blender product which also contains hydroquinone. Just like the Clear, it helps to tackle discoloration but it also assists the other products in the kit get better absorbed. This is important so that every product can work optimally. Blender also clears your complexion and evens out your skin tone.
If you want to go one step further, combine it with tretinoin, a prescription product often recommended for use with Blender. They work together to boost your skin’s collagen production so that you have tighter, more elastic and youthful skin. Anti-aging treatments are always on the rise, and what can be better than clearer skin that is also wrinkle-free?
Hydrate and Nourish
Use the Hydrate product, which is a moisturizing cream that soothes skin while getting rid of any dryness. This is a must after you have exfoliated and corrected your skin to seal in silky softness so that your skin looks radiant.
You know you should never leave the house without a sun protection product, even in winter. The addition of the Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF in the kit means you’ll never forget your sunscreen again! It’s SPF 50 and broad spectrum, so it offers high levels of protection against both UVA and UVB rays. This also protects against any future sun damage. Sunscreen is extra important when using hydroquinone as it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so finish off your routine with the Sun Shield every time.
The Obagi Nu Derm Transformation Kit should be used daily to renew your skin so that it’s clearer and healthier. It’s the only skincare you’ll need to boost your skin’s appearance this summer.
