How to use the Obagi Nu-Derm Starter Kit
Step 1: The Obagi Cleanser
The very first step of the Obagi Nu-Derm System routine is to use the mild facial cleanser to remove all the dirt and impurities that have accumulated on your face throughout the day. Use the Obagi Nu-Derm cleanser twice daily, morning and evening.
Step 2: Obagi Toner
The next step in the Obagi Nu-Derm System is to tone your skin using the Obagi Toner, bonus - it's suitable for all skin types! The Toner works to lock in any hydration, prepare the skin for other products to come and helps to re-balance your skin's natural pH levels. As with the cleanser, you should tone your skin once in the morning and once in the evening as part of your Obagi Nu-Derm skincare routine.
Step 3: Obagi Clear FX
Obagi Clear FX contains 4% hydroquinone and works to improve discolouration and the texture of the skin. Obagi Clear FX should be used once in the morning and once in the evening.
Step 4: Obagi Exfoliator
Exfoliate your skin using the Obagi Nu-Derm Exfoliator, both of which are chemical exfoliants. These are designed to brighten and clear up your skin by removing dead skin cells and revealing the new luscious skin underneath. Make sure to exfoliate your skin once a day, during your skincare routine.
Step 5: Obagi Blend FX
Obagi Blend FX is a unique product to help improve hyperpigmentation of the skin, including melasma, age spots and sunspots that have accumulated over the years. Use once daily, as part of your nighttime routine.
Step 6: Obagi Hydrate
The penultimate step of your skincare routine is to moisturise your skin using the Obagi Hydrate moisturiser, suitable for all skin types. This moisturiser is especially good for any drier patches of skin, helping to lock in moisture. Use this product as you need it, either as part of your morning routine or evening skincare routine.
Step 7: Obagi Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50
As a few of the products in the Nu-Derm System contain hydroquinone, it is important to ensure that you are protecting your new skin from the sun's harsh UV rays. Hydroquinone can cause melanocytic activity on your skin even from the smallest amount of exposure to the sun (which can lead to skin diseases). Use the Obagi Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50 for maximum protection during the day.
When Can I See Results?
It is recommended to use the Obagi Nu-Derm System for 12 weeks for the best results. Patients usually see a difference in their skin from as little as 2-3 weeks of using the products, and at weeks 5-6 hyperpigmentation should have significantly improved too.
