Obagi and Vitamin C

Obagi and Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a key to the production of collagen, a protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels and gives skin its firmness and strength. Collagen is abundant in our youth, however over the years collagen breaks down and fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. By simply stabilizing your skin’s levels of Vitamin C, it can greatly help to counteract wrinkle formation by increasing collagen production which in turn builds new skin cells for an overall smoother skin complexion.

Vitamin C reduces more visible signs of aging aside from fine lines and wrinkles as well. Age spots are essentially visible signs of sun damage that can hinder an ideal skin appearance. Adding Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, to your skin has been shown in research to reduce the number of sunburned skin cells as well as reverse age-related damage to skin. Research has also suggested that Vitamin C may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to UV radiation and prevent the consequences of long-term sun exposure; but remember it is not a replacement for sunscreen. Vitamin C helps with anti-aging, photo-damage, wound healing, dry skin and a dull complexion. If you are looking to rid or improve the skin from any of skin concerns listed, then a Vitamin C topical treatment is highly recommended.

Obagi Medical, Inc. has been a long-time leader in the Skin Care Industry and for good reason. They have created several different products containing topical Vitamin C to help with anti-aging as well as a loss of firmness and elasticity. They have created the Obagi Professional-C Line to help with just that.

 The Professional-C Line is an effective way to help defend against the signs of premature skin aging to leave the complexion smooth, brighter, and more even for an overall younger looking appearance. It contains three powerful serums in different strengths of Vitamin C ranging from 10%, 15% and 20%. The Professional-C Serums are ideal for all skin types and have been designed specifically for protecting the skin against damage from environmental stress and neutralize free radicals and molecules that bombard the body cells continuously. Without the use of these antioxidants, the free radicals are easily able to damage cellular membranes. The Professional-C Serums help to reduce the signs of aging, prevent formation of wrinkles and fine lines, insulate the skin cells against further damage, and revamp collagen production for firm and resilient skin. Incorporating any of these C-Serums into a daily skin care regimen will help to achieve the look of bright, smooth, youthful looking skin.

 The Professional-C Line is also comprised of the Obagi Professional-C Eye Brightener. The Obagi Professional-C Eye Brightener improves the appearance of dark circles, crepiness, and crow’s feet with natural growth factors Kinetin and Zeatin for a boost in the collagen production around the eye area. The Professional-C Eye Brightener also contains L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) for added antioxidant protection against harmful free radicals in the environment that can cause crow’s feet, fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin. Soft Focus Technology creates optical diffusion, blurring the appearance of fine lines and shadows. Utilization of the Eye Brightener will leave the delicate eye area feeling hydrated, firm, radiant and youthful.

The Obagi Professional-C Peptide Complex is an effective anti-aging treatment that promotes youthful looking skin. The Professional-C Peptide Complex contains important growth factors Kinetin and Zeatin to boost collagen production in the skin for the creation of new healthy skin cells that will leave the skin looking smooth and radiant. The serum also contains a dose of L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) for added antioxidant protection against harmful free radicals in the environment that can cause visible signs of premature aging. The Peptide Complex will help improve the appearance of firmness, tone and elasticity in the skin.

The Obagi Professional-C Suncare SPF 30 is a non-comedogenic, broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays that can lead to sun damage. The Professional-C Suncare SPF 30 also contains a dose of L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) for added antioxidant protection against harmful free radicals in the environment that can cause visible signs of premature aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, freckles and dark spots. The broad-spectrum sunscreen will not only prevent sun damage such as sun spots and skin cancer, but also reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness in the skin for a brighter, toned, healthier looking complexion.

With all the benefits the Obagi Professional-C Line can provide, sometimes you need treatments for other skin conditions you are currently suffering from. And that is okay, as Obagi products and systems can be used in conjunction together. If you are looking for something to alleviate discoloration, age spots, dark spots, and/or hyper pigmentation, then using the Obagi Clear from the Nu-Derm System in conjunction with any of the Professional-C Line of products would be ideal. The Obagi Clear is a very powerful and effective skin lightening and bleaching correcting cream that penetrates deep down to the deepest layer of the skin to combat uneven melanin distribution and leave you with the most even, clear skin possible. Use this in conjunction with any of the Professional-C Serums to achieve radiant, healthy results.
