When exposed to drying factors such as the wind and changes in temperature, skin can crack, peel, become itchy and irritated and generally feel very dry. This can be made worse by genetic factors, prolonged exposure to UV rays and indoor heating and air conditioning.

Dry skin can produce a dull, rough complexion, less elasticity in the skin, red patches and more visible aging lines.

If you have dry skin, changing your cleansing routines and using the right skincare products can completely transform your skin. TheObagi Nu-Derm system can work to remove the dryness and roughness from your skin to transform it from the inside out, while also containing unique ingredients that combat the signs of aging. Changing your skincare routine to accommodate your dry skin will soothe any soreness and repair any damage to your skin.



Oily skin is particularly common when going through puberty, and can also be caused by stress, exposure to heat or exposure to drying factors that cause your skin to produce more oil.

Mature skin needs extra care and attention in order to deal with the changes that are natural with age. Over time, our skin produces less collagen and loses its elasticity, causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear.

The Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Treatment restores skin elasticity and targets the most obvious aging signs easily and effectively.
