Who Should Consider the Obagi-C Rx System and Why

Who Should Consider the Obagi-C Rx System and Why

All of us wish we could have the skin we had when we were younger.  Unfortunately, due to nature, sun exposure, and environmental factors, our youthful skin will show signs of aging.  Depending on genetics, how much you love the sun (and/or outdoor winter sports), and the amount of pollutants in the air, skin changes will eventually become evident.

The Obagi-C Rx System is formulated for men and women in the range of 18-40 years old.  More importantly, it has been shown to correct what has already occurred as well as prevent future damage.

Should you use Toner?
Posted by Dr. Weiner on 8/22/2013 to Skincare


In over 33 years of practice, I’ve frequently been asked, “Why do I need a toner?”  After acknowledging this as an excellent question, I reply, “You don’t, but if you want to achieve the best results from your Obagi products, you should absolutely use one.”

Obagi’s toners are formulated to accomplish several things to maximize your skin care.

  • Balance skin pH
  • Improve absorption of products placed on the skin after the toner

  • Tighten skin and decrease pore size, while still moisturizing

Using any cleanser will alter the normal acid/base balance of the skin surface.  Bar soaps for body use can be particularly harsh.  Washing will strip away the usual acidic state which helps protect against bacterial build-up.  Oil and sweat will naturally reestablish skin acidity within a few hours,  However a toner will rebalance the pH as it is being applied.  This results in overall skin health (less bacteria) and allows skin care products placed afterwards (Clear, the appropriate exfoliant, and Blender) to absorb much better.

Both NuDerm and C-Balancing Toner (this is for oily skin only) contain an organic astringent, witch hazel, which helps tighten skin and decrease pore size.  It is found in greater concentration in the C-Toner.  More importantly, you have to realize that an astringent can be too drying.  And that’s why it is important that it be combined with the correct amount of moisturizer to prevent this.  Obagi has made the C-Toner to provide more of the astringent effect, whereas the NuDerm Toner has the perfect combination for dry, normal or oily skin.

So in order to maintain that healthy skin glow while not looking to “greasy” or “shiny”, I highly recommend using the Obagi toner that best suits your needs.

Why Hydrate?
Posted by Dr. Mike on 6/6/2013 to Skincare

Why “Hydrate”?


Water, good old H2o, is an essential requirement for every animal’s, humans included, survival.  And skin, being the largest organ of the body, needs water to carry out its many functions.  Those include protection, insulation, sensation, and regulation of temperature.


I want to focus on why it’s so important that your skin obtains and maintains adequate hydration.  And more specifically why Obagi Medical’s Hydrate is the best means to accomplish this.


Think of a skin cell (or any cell for that matter) as a sack containing lots of tiny particles.  These particles run the cells which run our body.  Without the important nutrients, hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O), the particles cannot do their job.  Therefore it is important that water is always available in sufficient quantity for our skin to do the job(s) it was meant for.


Although our skin is our largest organ, it is not our most important in terms of immediate survival (consider heart, lungs, brain, etc.).  So, when H2O is at a premium, other organs will have higher priority.  Unless you are stranded in the desert or on a raft in the ocean, water is readily available.  But how can we make quick “skin adjustments” when dry air, sunshine, air conditioning or other environmental factors decrease the amount of water in our skin?  Simple – devise a formula which attracts and holds water in the skin.  Better yet, have that formula also have the ability to gradually disperse the water over time.  Well, it’s not that simple, but Obagi Medical has done the trick.  Their new moisturizer, Hydrate, contains an ingredient called Hydromanil which attracts, holds and disperses water over an 8 hours period.  This, along with the natural non-pore clogging ingredients shea & mango butter make Hydrate the ideal moisturizer.  That’s why Obagi now includes Hydrate in both their dry and oily Nu-Derm starter kits.  There are hundreds of moisturizers on the market – Hydrate is the first and only one that delivers water on an ongoing basis.

Obagi Nu-Derm Hydrate

Hydrate isn’t just an ordinary lotion. It is formulated to provide long-lasting hydration for all-day moisture protection. It contains Hydromanil, a technologically advanced ingredient, which retains water and gradually delivers moisture to the skin. So not only does it provide immediate moisturization, it also continues to hold water in the layers of your skin over time. In fact, as demonstrated in a moisturization study, Hydrate provides 8-hour moisture protection!

This gentle, hypoallergenic formula also contains other natural ingredients such as shea butter, mango butter, and avocado to help combat skin dryness without clogging your pores. Designed for all skin types, Hydrate is dermatologist-tested to be non-irritating and non-sensitizing, so you can ensure that it’s been clinically proven to be safe.

As part of your regular skin care regimen, apply Hydrate in the morning and evening to help protect your skin. Hydrate is also designed to work optimally with the Obagi Nu-Derm® System—especially if you are experiencing dry, flaky skin as your skin undergoes transformation, Hydrate will help provide relief and comfort.

Anti-aging Transformation

Skin aging is a natural process, but daily sun exposure can contribute to premature aging, slowing down the turnover of skin cells between healthy new cells and old damaged cells.

Signs of aging and photodamage:
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rough skin
  • Skin laxity (loss of elasticity)
  • Erythema (redness)
  • Sallowness (complexion)
  • Hyperpigmentation (discoloration)
The Nu-Derm System is an anti-aging therapy that penetrates below the skin’s surface to transform skin cell functions at the cellular level and correct the damage within... revealing healthy, younger-looking skin.
