I have always had quite good skin. But in recently years, there are a few ‘problems’ that I feel is bothering me more than ever.. Uneven skin tone, more obvious pores, pigmentations and also lines!!
I was so pleased when Dr Yap of Astique approached me to start on a line of skincare targetted to my current concerns.
How can this programme do?
The Obagi 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.
What can i expect with this treatment?
*reduction in pore size
*silky smooth skin
*even skin color
*glowing, bright skin
I was given a set of 6 products from Obagi to start the 6-weeks regime.
Step 1 : Foaming Gel (for use in am/pm)
Step 2 : Toner (for use in am/pm)
Step 3: Clear (for use in am/pm)
Step 4: Exfoderm (for use in am)
Step 5: Blender (for use in pm)
Step 6: Skin Protection SPF35 (for use in am)
You can read more on the products
I started the whole Obagi regime on 16 Dec 2012. My skin appear to be very normal for the first 4 days.
Obagi skincare has been around since many years ago but this is the first time i am using their products. As i have sensitive skin, I was a little concerned when i noticed that Obagi Nu-Derm products has hydroquinone in some of their items (have heard and read some not so good reviews on hydroquinone) but I am convinced after speaking to Dr Yap. Under proper supervision, hydroquinone is completely safe. As usual, he always make me feel very comfortable and reassured after listening to his explanation.
I was a little worried when my skin flared up about a week after I started the skincare but Dr Yap assured me again that the bad reaction was just part of the skin renewal process. He suggested that I continue. True enough! my skin did clear up after day 10.
