Dark spots can be real annoying. Whilst you may have healthy skin, an even texture, no visible signs of fine lines, wrinkles and be completely acne-free, dark spots are one of those pesky skin concerns that seem to come out of nowhere but then stick around forever. Certain factors contribute to the discolouration of skin, of which sun exposure tops the list. Now that we are drawing closer to summer, the likelihood of getting dark spots increases. Of course, the frustration of having dark spots and wearing foundation to conceal those signs of hyperpigmentation adds up. Luckily, Obagi Blend Fx offers a revolutionary skin brightening formula that can visibly lighten pigmentation, giving you a smooth, supple, and naturally glowing skin tone. Ideal if your skin concern for summer 2020 is dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
How are dark spots formed?
Melanin gives colour to the skin. This means that too much sun exposure can result in the acceleration of melanin production. If this continues for long periods, a cluster of melanin might surface on your skin to welcome you to the world of dark spots. This might further result in signs of premature ageing on your skin and even cause skin cancer in the long run. Yes, the damage is not just cosmetic, but can cause real harm to your health.
Genetics can contribute to dark spots too. For instance, paler skin tones are more likely to develop dark patches from exposure to the sun or as part of the ageing process.
Hyperpigmentation also results in dark patches, age spots, freckling, and melasma, all caused by exposure to the sun.
Tackling dark spots with the Obagi Nu Derm Blend Fx
While limiting your exposure to the sun is critical to keeping yourself free from those pesky spots, you can get rid of the more stubborn marks with an effective skin brightening formula from Obagi. If you've already been exposed to sunlight and want to prevent your dark spots from getting worse in the 2020, you need Obagi Nu Derm Blend FX.
The Obagi Nu Derm Blend Fx is carefully formulated to improve the signs of sun damage and can address your skin concerns. The powerful night cream targets dark spots and hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure, acne, and melasma.
The hydroquinone-free formulation works on your dark spots and pigmentation to give you a smoother and more even skin tone. You can effectively minimise imperfections caused by sun damage and melasma simply through the use of this powerful product.
Given its potency you may be asking, is it harsh?
Well, the non-prescription formula from Obagi is gentle and effectively works on dark spots as a powerful skin brightening solution. Here’s how:
• The unique formulation uses arbutin that inhibits tyrosinase – responsible for melanin production. Arbutin can gradually fade the appearance of brown spots by controlling the production of melanin.
• Antioxidants are a proven skin protection formula that effectively works in preventing future damage to the skin.
• A boost to collagen production, Blend Fx promotes skin health and makes it elastic. When blended with retinol, it accelerates the repairing process of skin cells.
• The gentle skin brightening formulation is your skin’s best friend and works to provide anti-ageing effects without causing irritation. Regular use promotes skin healing and lightens the appearance of discoloured skin.
• What’s more, the skin brightener works equally well as an exfoliating agent, promoting healthy cell turnover for a more radiant appearance.
If you’re looking to get rid of dark spots and hyperpigmentation and have explored one product after another without success, Obagi Blend Fx might prove to be the best skin brightener for you, preventing another year of dark spots during the summer months.
Suitable For Most Skin Types
As the less aggressive version of the Obagi Nu Derm Blender Rx (prescription only) facial cream, the ingredients of Obagi Blend fx are designed to work gently on the skin yet remain effective at lightening and reducing hyperpigmentation. It does just that, with a cleverly formulated combination of natural compounds and ingredients:
Obagi Blend Fx contains 7% arbutin, a natural plant extract, which inhibits the action of an enzyme called tyrosinase that is involved in the production of melanin. This mechanism of action therefore reduces the production of melanin in the skin, keeping the skin lighter and looking fresher.
Also called ascorbic acid, vitamin C has strong antioxidant properties that help combat the visible signs of UV skin damage. In addition, the presence of vitamin C plays a vital role in the cream’s promotion of collagen production in the skin, which is responsible for the skin's firmness and elasticity.
Acting in a similar way to vitamin C, vitamin E is an extremely powerful antioxidant that works to keep your skin looking young, bright and healthy with its free-radical inhibiting properties. The presence of antioxidants in this facial cream protects your skin and reduces the visible signs of ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles.
