Q&A: How should I use my new Obagi products?

Obagi GWP Title TBD

We were thrilled to have an amazing gift with purchase during our recent sale! Two gifts with purchase were particularly popular: Obagi Gentle Rejuvenation Skin Rejuvenation Serum and Obagi Professional-C Peptide Complex. We want you to get the most out of your products, so we’ve compiled this little guide to help you incorporate these new products into your current skin care routine.

Obagi Professional-C Peptide Complex

What it is: Fortified with peptides and vitamin C, this unique complex creates a more even skin tone and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in as little as 28 days.

Why it works: The key anti-aging ingredients in this treatment are backed by clinical studies. Vitamin C brightens skin and provides antioxidant protection while peptides stimulate collagen production to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Plant growth factors Kinetin and Zeatin also help repair and revitalize mature skin. With regular use, this treatment is proven to reduce wrinkle depth by 35 percent in just four weeks.

How to use it: After cleansing, apply to your entire face, neck and décolletage each morning and evening. This treatment would be applied after your regular serum but before moisturizer and sunscreen.

Pairs well with: The great thing about this treatment is that it can easily be added to any skin care routine. For optimal results, use this peptide treatment in conjunction with the other Obagi Professional-C products. This line of vitamin C-infused treatments includes three step-up vitamin C serums for antioxidant protection, a brightening eye cream to address dark circles and broad spectrum sunscreen. We also recommend pairing this vitamin C treatment with NeoStrata Skin Active Triple Firming Neck Cream. Like Professional-C Peptide Complex, this neck cream includes a handful of clinically proven ingredients, including Pro-Amino Acid, NeoCitriate, NeoGlucosamine and apple stem cell extract to build volume, firm sagging skin and minimize the appearance of dark spots.

Obagi Gentle Rejuvenation Skin Rejuvenation Serum

What it is: Powered by growth factors, this gentle serum supports the skin’s natural healing process to repair the complexion and minimize signs of aging.

Why it works: Finally an anti-aging serum that is gentle enough for sensitive skin! The key ingredients in this rejuvenating serum work to repair cells and improve the appearance of mature skin. Kinetin and Zeatin address fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. Swiss apple extract encourages cell renewal to smooth wrinkles and uneven skin texture. As an added benefit, this serum has a unique delivery system that distributes ingredients to your complexion over a 12-hour period, so you’re constantly reaping the benefits.

How to use it: After cleansing, apply a thin layer of product to your entire face, neck and décolletage each morning and evening. This product would take the place of your usual serum, followed by moisturizer and sunscreen.

Pairs well with: This serum can easily be added to any skin care routine, by either taking the place of your regular serum or alternating each one morning and night. For best results, use this serum alongside the rest of the Obagi Gentle Rejuvenation line. Perfect for sensitive skin, this skin care line addresses signs of aging without causing irritation or inflammation. You can pick a few products that best suit your skin care needs or start with Obagi Gentle Rejuvenation System Kit, which includes a cleanser, day cream, sunscreen and night cream that work together to help you achieve a more youthful appearance. We also recommend using this serum in conjunction with NeoStrata Skin Active Triple Firming Neck Cream to carry anti-aging benefits down the neck and chest area. This firming neck cream’s moisturizing formula promotes new collagen production to firm sagging skin while smoothing a rough, uneven skin texture.
