Choose the best Obagi products for your skin concern
Obagi have many different products that help with many different skin concerns from sun damage, signs of ageing to uneven skin tone and acne.
Let’s take a look at them…
Long term sun exposure without appropriate protection is possibly the largest contributor to the visible signs of ageing. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays can reduce the chance of sunburn, sunspots (brown spots) and ageing skin. Whilst also helping protect against skin cancer. For this reason, SPF is vital and should be applied every morning to finish off your skincare routine. We recommend the Obagi SunShield Matte SPF50
which comes in a tinted or non-tinted version.
Also, using an eye cream will help with ageing concerns as the eye area is where we tend to age first. Obagi ELASTIderm eye treatments
are proven stand-alone eye treatments that deliver real results. By using a unique bi-mineral complex of Copper, Zinc and Malonic Acid, it works to restore the elasticity around the eyes and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
As skin ages and is exposed to more UVA & UVB rays, the rate at which new skin cells develop slows down. It is the result of too much melanin (a type of pigment that gives colour to the hair skin and eyes) being produced by the body and this can lead to the darkening of the skin in patches on the face. Pregnancy hormones or certain medications can also cause this.
Obagi Nu-Derm is the number 1 physician-dispensed skincare system. It works by penetrating the surface of the skin to transform the function of the skin cells at a cellular level, correcting the damage from within, reducing dark spots and revealing younger, healthier skin. It is ideal for:
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Rough skin
Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid
Acne is a common skin condition that causes spots and oily skin. The main symptoms of acne are spots on your face, back and chest. Your skin may be oily, or it may be hot or painful to touch. Acne is often linked to changes in hormone levels during puberty, but can start at any age. It's also known to run in families. Stress can also cause acne as Chronic stress increases levels of stress-related hormones such as cortisol and sends skin’s sebaceous (oil) glands into overdrive, which mixes with dead skin cells and breakout-causing bacteria. Adult skin is more prone to buildup of dead skin cells because natural cell turnover slows over time.
The best Obagi acne treatment is the CLENZIderm M.D system
. A complete 3-step system specially formulated for normal to oily skin to treat acne where it starts. This system includes clinically proven benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid to control acne for a clearer, healthier-looking complexion.
This system is prescription strength so requires a consultation with a GlowBay skin expert
to assess suitability for purchase.
Taking care of your skin from a young age is imperative if you want to keep skin looking youthful for longer. It is always harder to achieve healthy, radiant skin later in life if you haven’t nurtured it from a young age.
Our everyday lives are busier than ever and finding time for a regular, structured skincare routine can be difficult. However, forming good skincare habits can prevent the loss of radiance and elasticity later on. Obagi360
is an ideal system for younger skin. The 3-step system helps to clear clogged pores that can cause dry and uneven skin, purifies complexion with a gentle yet powerful Retinol 0.5% and protects against the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Hydrators and Serums
What is a hydrator? A hydrator (like hyaluronic acid) helps to bring water to the skin using humectants. These humectants help collect moisture in the environment and bind it to the skin, which allows the skin to absorb the water.Obagi Daily Hydro-drops
are great for this. This weightless formula uses Isoplentix microfluidic technology to suspend Vitamin B3, Abyssinian Oil, and Hibiscus Oil in their purest forms. Only once dispensed and massaged into the skin do the oils and hydrating gel infuse hydration to help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for more radiant, healthy-looking skin with continued use.
For serum we recommend Obagi Professional C Serum 10%
as it’s designed to penetrate deep into the skin, this potent serum infuses the skin with 10% L-Ascorbic Acid to brighten dark spots and encourage the production of collagen and elastin while providing an impressive level of protection against free radicals and environmental stressors. The effective antioxidant formula also helps to brighten uneven tone at the surface and creates a more radiant and youthful-looking complexion with regular use.
