The side effects of lingering in the sun-drenched days of summer, while delightful for the soul, is damaging to the skin. And, yes, that tan may have garnered some compliments during the season, but the sobering fact is: It’s leaving behind age spots, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and a dull complexion that lasts far longer than your vacation glow.
The good news? It’s never too late (or early) for a skin care intervention, and the switching of the seasons makes now the perfect time to reevaluate your daily regimen. Prescription-grade skin care brand Obagi makes it easy to treat existing damage while setting you back on the right track to prevent further effects of photoaging.
The Obagi C-Rx System packages the necessary products together to tackle all the facets of damage: spots, uneven skin tone, lines, and wrinkles. The star of the system—the C-Clarifying Serum—uses key ingredients 4% hydroquinone plus 10% L-ascorbic acid to fade hyperpigmentation and reduce the appearance of dark spots for a complexion that brightens over time. A day lotion (or toner if your skin falls on the oiler side) helps to hydrate and gently exfoliate, encouraging cell turnover, and a night cream continues to heal skin while you sleep with nourishing Vitamins C and E. The system rounds out with a cleansing gel that prepares skin to absorb the ingredients more effectively and a broad spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen (your new daily must!) so you don’t undo any of the work.
Obagi C-Rx system is available for purchase in select dermatology, plastic surgery and other aesthetic physician’s practices.
