There is no better time to practice your skincare routine than now! With self isolation affecting most of us, many of our usual daily routines have been put on hold. With routines being disrupted, skincare can often be the first ritual to go. After all, there’s nowhere to go out and not many people to see anyway? However, here at Skinstation we believe that now is the perfect opportunity to indulge in a bit of self care with all the time to practice. Now is the time to spend a little bit of time on you, and feel good for yourself!
The Obagi Nu Derm System is a complete skincare system that is specifically designed to give you that glowy clear skin you’ve always wanted, giving you an added boost now, when you need it most. The bonus? There is an Obagi system for normal to dry skin, and normal to oily skin as well with a few product changes!
Obagi System for Clear Skin
This Obagi Nu Derm System is designed to help correct dark spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation and transform the appearance of ageing. So where to start, and what clear skin products are your new go-tos?
Next time you are feeling a bit sluggish in self isolation and need some indulgence, start by gently removing your makeup and the impurities from the day with Obagi’s Gentle Cleanser. But don’t worry, for those of you suffering from dry skin, this cleanser will also hydrate and help balance dry and itchy skin. Alternatively, the Obagi Foaming Gel is a cleanser specifically designed to remove makeup and impurities for normal to oily skin. This will not only cleanse your skin, but will also remove excess oil and prevent future breakouts, as well as soothing redness with its aloe vera content. Start by massaging your chosen cleanser into your damp skin, using upward circular motions. Follow up by rinsing with lukewarm water and patting dry gently with a towel.
Next in the Obagi System is the Toner, one of the best selling Obagi products. Whilst traditionally, toners were extremely drying and stripping, this specially formulated toner is alcohol-free, non-drying and helps to balance the pH of your skin, suitable for both dry to oily skin… win win. Oh, and it improves the appearance of dark spots and visible signs of ageing! Using a cotton pad or cotton ball, gently apply your Obagi Toner across your whole face avoiding the eye area.
Next step in your skincare routine is Obagi Clear FX. This is a unique product that is designed to correct hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne and melasma. This will create a natural and more even skin tone, the perfect aid for those self isolation no-make up days.
Next comes Obagi Exfoderm, the perfect chemical exfoliant for normal to dry skin, or the Obagi Exfoderm Forte for normal to oily skin. This will remove old skin cells and reveal new skin cells, transforming your skin from dull to glowy. The Obagi Exfoderm Forte is slightly stronger which reduces excess oils and pore size, smoothing out rough and damaged skin. Apply your product across the whole of the face and neck area, avoiding the eyes. Leave this to soak in whilst you potter about the house.
The penultimate step in your new skincare routine is one of the most well known Obagi products, the Obagi Hydrate moisturiser. This will lock in all of your skincare products and soothe areas of flaky, dry skin. Gently massage across your face and neck area, leaving you with a gorgeous glow for you to admire.
Lastly, finish off your skincare routine with Obagi’s Sun Shield SPF to protect your skin from sun damage for those sunny spring days in your garden!
