The Hottest Skin Care Brand You Probably Haven't Tried (But Should)
Posted by Nikki Wisher on Apr 26th 2023
In every field or hobby, there are brands and names that are household names to people who are in that world but are relatively unknown to others. For example, to everyone in the running world, marathon world record-holder Eliud Kipchoge is an A-list celeb, but most people who don’t follow running wouldn’t recognize his name. This holds true in the skin care world too – there are some brands that skin care buffs know well but that the general population doesn’t know.
As a self-described skin care groupie, I sometimes have to remind myself that brands I’ve revered for years aren’t well-known among most people. That’s why I want to tell you about one of the legendary brands that’s a skin care elite and that could give you the best skin of your life: Obagi.
When I say that Obagi is a legend in the skin care world, I’m not exaggerating. From dermatologists to med spas to day spas, everyone you find who knows skin will know about Obagi. This brand is a true pioneer in skin care.
The Obagi brand has been around for 35 years, specializing in creating medical-grade skin care products. What sets Obagi apart is not only its outstanding quality but, above all, its innovation. This brand has an in-depth research and development program that’s always turning out something new and innovative. Whether it’s finding out how to harness new ingredients or finding new ways to tackle a particular issue, Obagi is on it.
The extensive catalog of products from Obagi is the result of all that research and development. This brand was the first to perform clinical testing for its products for all skin types and skin tones, and it continues its legacy today of creating skin care solutions for everyone.
Obagi Product Lines You Have to Try
Okay, enough of my nerding out. If you want to try Obagi for yourself, where should you start? Obagi has many product lines, each with its own focus. Depending on your skin’s needs, I suggest you start with these fabulous and cutting-edge product lines:
Nu-Derm was the product line that initially put Obagi on the map, creating a comprehensive skin care system to enhance and enrich the health of your skin. Nu-Derm Fx is the latest and most advanced iteration of that line.
Nu-Derm Fx is all about giving you a brighter, more even complexion. If your skin has been dull or uneven, or if it just doesn’t have that glow you want, this is the product line for you. If you really want to go all-in, try the full Obagi Nu-Derm Fx system (either the normal to oily system or the normal to dry system). If you’re more of the “dip your toe in the water” type, try the Obagi Nu-Derm Blend Fx, a fantastic brightening product.
If your skin is prone to acne, this one’s for you. CLENZIderm MD is Obagi’s medical-grade acne control product line. It’s designed to stop acne at its source, restoring balance to your skin and minimizing your breakouts.
Want to pack a serious punch against acne while being gentle to your skin in the process? Check out the full Obagi CLENZIderm MD Acne Therapeutic System. If you prefer to start smaller, the Obagi CLENZIderm MD Therapeutic Lotion is a great place to start.
Aging is a top concern for skin care, and Obagi knows that well. That’s why it has the popular ELASTIderm product line. This line is all about improving your skin’s elasticity – its ability to remain firm, smooth, and youthful despite the effects of aging and gravity.
The product line has a variety of options from serums to eye creams and more. If you’re most concerned with aging around your eyes (where aging starts for many of us), you’ll love the Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Cream. The Obagi ELASTIderm Facial Serum is also an excellent staple for preventing and reducing aging, but I highly recommend the Obagi ELASTIderm Neck and Décolleté Concentrate too, because the neck and décolleté tend to age more quickly than we notice.
Treating Your Skin to Something Special
When you’re shopping for skin care products, your skin’s health and appearance will depend on your choices so you need products you can trust. The best way to do that is to choose products from well-respected brands, and Obagi has a reputation for creating the type of excellence your skin deserves.
