It’s skin rejuvenation season –you’ve had your fun in the sun and now it’s time to repair the damage. If you’ve spent time outside this past summer, you’ve probably got some freckles, increased pigmentation and possibly an overall weatherworn complexion.
The dark spots that accumulate from years of sun exposure can add years to your complexion. The overall appearance of these spots adds shadows to your face, making you look older. Youthful skin is typically lighter and, because it hasn’t been exposed to the sun and other elements for the same amount of time, has smooth and uniform colour.
How can you repair uneven pigmentation?
One of the simplest methods to even out a complexion is with a good medical grade skin care regime.
Why medical grade skin care? Because it penetrates below the surface of the skin to repair complexion problems, something an over the counter skin care product isn’t formulated to do.
The skin care line, Obagi Nu Derm, is effective at reducing discoloration. It turns off pigment production to even out pigmentation problems. Obagi Nu Derm can be used as a stand-alone treatment or as a preparation for more in-depth rejuvenation procedures such as laser treatments or chemical peels.
The Obagi Nu Derm treatment line includes Retin A, prescription strength hydroquinone and a product containing alpha hydroxy acid, three skin repairing essentials for pigment problems as well as wrinkles. Used faithfully and as directed, your skin tone should begin to become lighter and more uniform shortly after beginning this proven treatment regime.
Rejuvenate your skin with a focused skin care routine. Now is the time to begin, as the best skin care products and treatments recommend staying out of the sun.
