Whoever says age is just a number, clearly hasn’t started to experience the 7 signs of ageing yet! In this instance, age is certainly not just a number. It’s a biological construct that marks the accumulated years you’ve spent maturing in this world. And with sun exposure, air pollution, and life’s general tendency to wear our bodies down from time to time, the first sign of ageing usually has a direct impact on the youthfulness of our skin. Thankfully, whilst these factors can add years to your complexion, there’s an abundance of products available to turn back time. Enter the Obagi Nu Derm System.

As you age, not only do the effects of the external world start to creep in, but skin cell turnover slows due to the accumulation of older, damaged cells, resulting in an uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and dark spots. Here’s where the Obagi Nu-Derm System can come to your rescue, working to reduce dark spots and reveal younger, healthier-looking, radiant skin. This is the best medically tested product on the market if you have problems with: 

  • Rough skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age spots
  • Yellowish complexion
  • Erythema (redness)

The Obagi Nu Derm System is one of the most sought-after product ranges on Skinstation and sparks a lot of interest and curiosity. So here’s all your top Obagi Nu Derm System questions answered! 

What is the Obagi Nu Derm System?

If you’ve been looking for an effective skincare solution for dull and sun-damaged skin, the Obagi Nu-Derm System can prove to be a life-changing experience. It is an all-encompassing solution for skin conditions, including acne, wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation. Whether you suffer from age spots, discolouration of the skin or rough and patchy skin, you will find a range of products within the Obagi Nu Derm System for all skin types. This includes; 

  • Creams
  • Cleansers
  • Toners
  • Exfoliators 

All in all, the Obagi Nu-Derm System is pretty much just another phrase for total skin transformation. The star ingredient in the seven-piece skincare kit is clinically tested hydroquinone, which is added to the formulation to hinder the production of tyrosine, responsible for keeping melanin in check. 

If you have normal to oily skin, you will find an effective Obagi solution. For normal to dry complexions, Nu-Derm has a range of products to suit your skin type. 

How Does the Obagi Nu Derm System Work and how to use the obagi nu derm system?

The Obagi Nu Derm System is a comprehensive skin care solution that uses a range of professional-grade lightening ingredients. The skin care products are formulated with prescription-strength ingredients. The formula works by inhibiting melanin production that helps control pigmentation in the skin, revealing radiant-looking skin. 

The regular application of the comprehensive skin care system promises to give you a more even and smoother skin tone whilst reducing any signs of ageing, wrinkles, bright spots, and fine lines. 

The Obagi Nu-Derm System has a varied range of products, with each formulated for a specific job aiming to prepare, correct, stimulate and look after your skin. The application of these revolutionary skin care solutions work to stimulate Keratinocytes, Melanocytes, and Fibroblasts in order to improve the functioning of these cells.

Every skin care regimen starts with this can’t-be-missed preparation step. Cleansing skin regularly is the golden ticket to good skin care. 

For dry skin, you will need a gentle cleanser designed to eliminate makeup, dirt, and grime from your skin. Pick the Obagi Nu Derm Foaming Gel if you have oily skin. This gentle cleansing wash is formulated with essential amino acids, aloe vera, apricot kernel oil and Vitamin B3 to remove dirt, impurities, and makeup. This highly effective combination works at revealing fresh and clean skin, without stripping away moisture. The foaming action makes it perfect for oily skin types and leaves your skin feeling ultra-clean, fresh, and moisturised.

The cleanser is the ideal way to kick-start your skin care regimen and clear your skin of dead skin cells.  You may add Retinol 0.5% cream for the controlled gradual release of retinol throughout the day for a smoother and clearer skin tone. 

Use the Obagi Foaming Gel Cleanser at least twice a day for a clean and fresh complexion. It should be part of your morning and evening skin care routine for soft, smooth, and youthful skin. Start with cleansing in the morning and once before bedtime.

obagi Toner

Follow up skin cleansing with the Obagi Nu-Derm Toner to tone your skin and maintain its pH balance. Irrespective of your skin type, a toner should be an essential part of your skin care routine.

A skin toner keeps your skin from drying out by balancing the pH and opening pores. The Obagi Nu Derm Toner is a powerful blend of witch hazel, flower extracts and aloe vera. The formula is strengthened with panthenol, hyaluronic acid, and sage leaf extract to exfoliate and tone your skin.

To ensure healthier skin, the pH is 5.5 and slightly acidic. More alkaline products tend to result in dryness, sensitivity, and irritability.

Use the Nu Derm Clear Fx for all skin types. The product is formulated with arbutin which is a prescription-level skin bleaching solution. It works on all signs of skin discoloration, age spots, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation, leaving you with an even skin tone. 

Regular use holds the key to youthful and smooth looking skin.

obagi Exfoliators

The next step is to correct the skin with exfoliation.  As you age, exfoliation becomes critical to skin care. As a result of the natural ageing process, your dead skin cells are stacked in the stratus corneum or the superficial layer of the skin, making your skin look dull.

The Obagi Exfoderm system comprises a moisturising lotion that acts as an exfoliator and removes dead skin cells.

A key step in this skin care process, Obagi Nu-Derm Exfoderm Forte removes dead surface skin cell buildup and promotes cell regeneration, improving the quantity of healthy cells. Exfoliation holds the key to revealing young, fresh baby-like skin underneath. 

Skin exfoliation also prepares the skin for the following step by clearing the skin of the dead cell buildup. This enables better absorption of skin care products by the skin.


Collagen boost and Hydration

Hydration is essential for skin glow. Dehydrated skin can look dull and lifeless. The Obagi Nu Derm Hydrate Moisturiser is designed as a skin hydration formula that maintains the normal skin barrier. ​

Formulated with clinically tested hydromanil, the Obagi Nu Derm Hydrate Moisturiser prevents moisture from escaping the skin to maintain hydration. 

For collagen stimulation, the Obagi Nu-Derm prescription-only creams work best by increasing blood supply. The revolutionary product reverses sun damage and minimises photodamage and hyperpigmentation. It also addresses the following skin concerns:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Rough skin
  • Skin laxity
  • Redness
  • Protection from Sun

Solar rays can cause immense damage to your skin. A highly effectively broad-spectrum sun block formulation can protect your skin from this damage. Obagi Sun Shield SPF 50 is formulated as a powerful blend against UVA and UVB rays. The Obagi Sun Shield is meant for everyday use for a healthier-looking skin. It will protect your skin from the damaging solar rays and should continue to be part of your maintenance routine.

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Melasma
  • Freckles 
  • Ruddy skin texture 
  • Any skin conditions that cause pigmentation
