As I was talking to my son the other day about the importance of a good skincare regimen, I made a startling discovery. I was discussing the different steps in a skincare line, and what each product would do for his skin, when he interrupted me.
"Not going to happen, Mom. I'm not using it. Too many steps."
He was saying no to fantastic skincare, just because he thought it was too confusing. It occurred to me that regardless of age or gender, many of us have simply accepted that skincare regimens are often confusing, and bursting with products that all claim to do essentially the same thing: make us look young, make us look beautiful. Wild claims, and often falling far from the mark. Obagi skincare products are different, which is one of the reasons we love them so much at Meadows Surgical Arts! Each line in the Obagi stable of hardworking products is designed for unique skincare needs, but they are simplified as much as possible to make it easy for you to follow your skincare regimen consistently. Not only are they easy to use, they work. Which is why, after trying out many skincare lines over the years (and trying to sort through an impressive collection of products that didn't work), I'm absolutely hooked on Obagi. I started using the Obagi Nu-Derm transformational system, and it did exactly that: transform my skin beyond my wildest expectations: smooth, unblemished, even-toned, and more youthful-looking than I though possible without surgery!
There is a new line of Obagi products that's effective, yet gentle and nourishing: the SUZANOBAGIMD Skincare System, which is rich in high-quality antioxidants that fight free radicals, thus reducing signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Developed by Dr. Suzan Obagi based on her philosophy to simply cleanse, protect, and renew, consistent use of these products will leave your skin looking rejuvenated and glowing!
STEP 1: CLEANSE
The first and most important step in any skincare regimen is to cleanse! You want to get rid of any dirt, dust, and impurities on your skin, in order to start with a "clean slate," and prevent those impurities from being pushed deeper into your pores, thus preventing your products from being absorbed by your skin.
SUZANOBAGIMD Foaming Cleanser is a thick microfoam that deeply cleanses dirt, makeup, and impurities from your skin. This should be followed by the SUZANOBAGIMD Balancing Toner, which removes every last trace of impurities from your skin and balances your skin's pH.
