How Obagi Will Transform Your Aging Skin... POSITIVELY

Updated: Feb 4, 2019


Skin transformation - read to learn how!


We all wish to have a youthful looking skin. Unfortunately, time leaves it’s marks and more so if lots of time has been spend in the sun!

If only I knew then, what I know now!


In my teens and twenties it was all about being tanned. Hence, NO sunscreen was used! Maybe growing up in Denmark didn’t help either since you kind of get “desperate“ for the sun after long dark winters. The reason for the tanning beds popularity! #sundamagedskin

When I rounded age 40, I noticed the first signs of skin aging - pigment changes (brown spots) and fine lines around the eyes (crows feet). #wrinkles #hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation and fine lines!


At this time I became much better at using sunscreen! My favorite being Obagi Sunshield. #obagisunscreen #sunprotection


Unfortunately, when your skin has already been damaged just adding sunscreen is not going to be enough!

You need to add products that can transform your skin! You have to work on both hyperpigmentation and your skin texture.

To transform your skin your skincare regimen most include hydroquinone and tretinoids (vitamin E) and L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C)

The Power Trio at a Glance:

Hydroquinone 4% - The #1 choice for hyperpigmentation-erasing and skin lightening.

Tretinoin (Retin-A) - The most used and research-proven anti-aging product for collagen-boosting, skin firming, skin renewal.

Now be careful to pick the right kind of vitamin A, because there is a big difference in effectivenes! Read more on this link!

Vitamin C - Also among the elite in skin care ingredients, Vitamin C brightens and erases discoloration by stimulating skin cell renewal and blocking the creation of the skin pigment melanin.


So which skin care products to pick?

Well, this Doctor ONLY uses Obagi! This product line has transformed my sun damaged skin. My skin looks so much better now, than it did before I started Nu-Derm. This kit will last about 3-4 months, which account for about 3 skin cell turnovers. You can therefore expect to see improvements within this time. #obaginuderm

10 years older on the paper, but 10 years younger on the skin


Obagi Nu-Derm is a system that consist of:

  • Cleanser

  • Toner

  • Clear

  • Exfoderm®

  • Blender®

  • Obagi Hydrate®

  • Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum

Nu-Derm transforms your skin from the inside out!

Skin aging is a natural process, but daily sun exposure can contribute to premature aging. Sun-damaged skin appears dull, with older, damaged cells accumulating due to slower skin cell turnover.

The Nu-Derm System helps transform the skin’s appearance by reducing darks spots, revealing younger, healthier-looking skin.

Nu-Derm is ideal if you have:

  • Age spots

  • Rough skin

  • Erythema (redness)

  • Sallowness (yellowish complexion)

  • Hyperpigmentation (discoloration)


To this regime, I add Vitamin C Serum, which I absolutely love. It gives yours skin a nice glove in addition to all the benefits described above.

And off course the Tretinoid creme! Always, recommend to start with 0.05% and then increase to 0.1%, when tube is empty.
