Why are we focusing in on Obagi Skin Care today?
Well, have you ever felt overwhelmed with skincare options when you walk into a pharmacy, big-box store, or department store? Even the boutiques and many spas carry so many products it’s almost impossible to sort through them and figure out which ones to buy.
And it’s not just the products that are overwhelming. It’s the protocols.
- Do you use a cream cleanser or a liquid cleanser?
- Do you follow that with a toner?
- And how about a skin tonic: Is that the same thing as a toner or an elixir, or are those three different things? Do you need all three?
- Is face oil the same as moisturizing lotion?
- Wait! You forgot about the masks and the exfoliants! How do those fit in?
Once you finally carry your big bag of beauty products home, then what happens? If you’re like most people, you use them for a little while, and then you can’t be bothered.
Or, even worse, your skin starts breaking out or gets stripped of its natural moisture, and now you have to start all over again.
We know your pain. That’s why we’re very selective about what products we use and sell. One of our favorite product lines is Obagi Skin Care.
Some of Obagi’s product lines are available to the general public, but their specialty is making products that you can only buy through clinics and doctors. That’s so they can train those skincare specialists in how best to use their products.
Obagi Skin Care and Your Skin
According to Obagi, your skin is a living organ, not a barrier to the outside world, and it should be treated as such. Because they approach skin in this way, they’re very specific about what their products contain, how their products work, and how you apply treatments to the skin.
Obagi begins their process at the cellular level. Since 1988 they’ve gained an increasingly deep understanding of skin biology. Knowing how the skin works at the cellular level enables them to approach skincare systematically. They therefore take every opportunity to make a positive impact on the skin and support healthy, optimal performance.
Their relentless focus is on the essential skin proteins that diminish as you age. They pay attention to the proteins that accumulate and prevent otherwise healthy skin from looking youthful. This then assists them in developing dynamic and transformational products that provide unparalleled results.
This isn’t just some soap and lotion protocol. Obagi Skin Care protocols:
- Improve barrier function
- Suppress skin inflammation
- Protect and repair DNA
- Help address pigmentation problems
- Hydrate dehydrated skin
- Calm irritated skin
- Provide anti-redness benefits to inflamed skin
- Defend skin with sun protection
It’s More Than Skincare. It’s Skin Health
Decades ago, Dr. Obagi set out on a mission to explain skin health. After years of research, he eventually defined skin health as “skin that is naturally smooth, strong, firm, even-toned, hydrated, and free of disease.”
This may not sound revolutionary to you now, but that’s because his definition spread quickly amongst respected dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
Moreover, prior to this definition of skin health, physicians had been focused on diagnosis. The new definition allowed them to find more appropriate solutions to a patient’s skin concerns. This definition also included a Skin Classification System that enabled physicians to determine the best treatments and anticipate responses based on a person’s ethnicity and skin type.
Step into the Future with Obagi Skin Care
Obagi Skincare was founded on the idea that your skin is more than a product of your past. Your skin is a window into your future. Their products unleash your skin’s full potential and protect your greatest asset.
Most skincare lines are about correcting the problem, but Obagi is all about prevention.
For that reason, all Obagi products are scientifically-backed, clinical-quality formulations to promote healthy, future-facing skin. The products help minimize…
- the appearance of premature skin aging,
- skin damage,
- sun damage, and
…so that you can greet the future with confidence.
Featured Skincare System: NuDerm
Nu-Derm is part of Obagi’s Medical Line. The Nu-Derm System is all about transformational skincare products formulated for aging skin. Although skin aging is a natural process, daily sun exposure can contribute to premature aging.
In addition, aging skin can appear dull because older damaged cells accumulate due to slower skin cell turnover.
The Nu-Derm System helps transform your skin’s appearance by reducing dark spots and fine lines, revealing younger, healthier-looking skin. Nu-Derm products are used at home with easy night and morning routines. If you have rough skin, age spots, erythema, sallow skin, or hyperpigmentation, then you should definitely check out the Nu-Derm skincare line from Obagi.
Having the products in your cabinet isn’t enough. You need to know how to use them.
Do you struggle with oily skin or acne? Is your skin spotted with hyperpigmentation or cloudy with rosacea? Do you wish your skin wasn’t so dehydrated? Each person has their own skincare struggle.
Skin is affected by nutrition, exercise, hormones, and external environmental factors like air pollution. Different skin concerns require different protocols. Dr. Obagi created a step-by-step guide to help you understand exactly what your skin needs to create your perfect skincare routine.
The first thing you need to do is get your skin ready. This is the essential foundation block to building your perfect skincare routine.
Have Normal to Oily Skin?

After your skin is ready, Dr. Obagi has other protocols to use as directed by your esthetician.
