Obagi Professional-C Serum 20% (good old Vitamin C Serum)
If you are looking for a product to hydrate, reduce signs of aging, prevent formation of fine lines and wrinkles, Obagi Professional-C Serum 20% is the one to try!
With 20% concentration of Vitamin C, it is the strongest and most powerful serum in the Obagi Professional-C line. Invented to penetrate deep into the skin, this serum works as a shield for the skin against damage from “environmental stressors and neutralizes free radicals and molecules’ that can harm the skin.
It also works simultaneously to protect the skin from UV damage and brighten hyperpigmentation while the hyaluronic acid in the formula secures moisture in the skin to prevent future dryness.
Without the use of these antioxidants, the free radicals are able to damage cellular membranes with ease. It also helps to reduce signs of aging, prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, and encases the skin cells against further damage. Using this powerhouse product daily will result in a more rejuvenated you!

Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Cream (get rid of eye wrinkles)
If you are battling stubborn fine lines and wrinkles that seem to have appeared out of nowhere around your eyes, add Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Cream to your regiment as soon as possible.
The lines and wrinkles that appear around your eyes are from lack of sun block and/or lack of moisturization (dry skin). The lack of moisture and sun protection results in a weakened skin barrier which leads to further water loss and a compromised defense against environmental attacks.
Basically, you are leaving yourself completely exposed! This is where Obagi’s Elastiderm Eye Cream comes in. It is clinically proven to “dramatically reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes, thanks to its proprietary bi-mineral complex technology.”
The powerful formula which includes natural ingredients such as algae extract and blueberry extract help to provide a powerful antioxidant against harmful free radicals that cause fine lines, wrinkles and the dreaded crow’s feet.
With daily use, this revolutionary formula will hydrate dry skin and produce younger, more resilient looking skin around the eyes in just 14 days. You will love using this cream.

Looking for other reasons to use this brand? Their Skinclusion Initiative is one incredibly great reason.
What is the Obagi Skinclusion Initiative?
The Obagi Skinclusion Initiative is a supporter of the International Cultural Diversity Organization and Project Implicit, which highlights the need to appreciate and recognize cultural diversity and unconscious bias.
Supported by Priyanka Chopra Jonas, It is designed to advance the global conversation regarding diversity and making “conscious choices to see the beauty in all of our differences.”
Priyanka stated, “The Obagi® SKINCLUSION initiative is very close to my heart because it aligns with my values and personal experience. The initiative supports the idea that we should be more conscious about everything we do, including how we address the automatic assumptions we make about others based on their skin tone. We all have unconscious bias, and it’s up to all of us to recognize it and be the change we want to see in the world.”
For those who are unaware, unconscious biases are attitudes and/or stereotypes that may be formed about certain groups of people based on skin tone. Although they are largely unintentional, unconscious biases prevent us from seeing beauty in others. Becoming aware of your bias is the first step in overcoming and moving past it.
To do their part, Obagi is, “supporting groups who work to expand diversity and inclusion efforts around the world, including the significant work being done by the International Cultural Diversity Organization (ICDO) and Project Implicit.”
What final tips do we recommend for products offered by other retailers?
If you are concerned about the price of the new products and are considering purchasing Obagi products from a retailer other than physicians, medical spas, or medical professionals, we strongly urge you not to. We cannot always guarantee its authenticity and it really may do more damage to your face than good.
Something important to take note of as you are (hopefully!) adding these products to your regimen is the importance of sunscreen and protecting your skin from harsh levels of sun exposure.
You should think of sunscreen as the final step of your morning skincare routine with the intention of applying and reapplying every single day or else the fantastic Obagi products you are applying to your face will not be beneficial to you throughout the day.
You may even be putting your money maker at even greater risk by not applying sunscreen. Be sure your sunscreen is 30 SPF or higher.
