Mother's day graphic

Mother’s Day will arrive before you know it, so instead of rushing around at the last minute for that “perfect bouquet,” why not prepare early this year, and make sure you treat mom to something she can truly enjoy and appreciate more than any box of chocolates or bouquet of flowers?

Every woman deserves the gift of excellent skin care, and Mom perhaps more than anyone. After all, how many times did Mom lose sleep over your late nights as a teenager, or get that small forehead wrinkle from when you brought home your first girlfriend or boyfriend? Mom was there through it all, so why not show your appreciation by treating her to one of these thoughtful and much-needed gifts?

For The Eyes

The eyes are the first area to show the signs of aging, as the skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin on the body. Mom is more than likely to have a few fine lines and wrinkles around her eyes, and perhaps some under-eye puffiness too, from those late nights worrying about you!

Our ELASTderm® Eye products contain clinically proven ingredients to refresh the appearance around the eyes for firmer-, smoother-looking skin.

For the Look of Aging Skin

As we age, our skin becomes drier and begins to show the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, therefore requiring more concentrated products to help address these concerns. Our absolute favorite antioxidant to help brighten the skin, retain moisture, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is Vitamin C. If Mom’s skin needs a pick-me-up, then look no further than our Professional-C™ products, formulated with Vitamin C to perk up not only Mom’s skin, but her spirits too!

For Hydration

Hydration is key to youthful-, radiant-looking skin, and a lack of it will show up as lackluster skin that is more prone to the appearance of aging. A lightweight moisturizer just won’t cut it, but our Obagi Hydrate® moisturizers reduce water loss with innovative Hydromanil Technology that delivers long-lasting moisture for up to 8 hours.

For Sun Protection

Sunscreen is one skincare product every person should wear on a daily basis. The sun is skin’s worst enemy, so be sure to help Mom protect hers with one of our broad-spectrum, dermatologist-tested sunscreens.* With a sunscreen for every skin type, you are sure to find one that’s perfect for Mom... and perhaps yourself!

If You Aren’t Sure

If you aren’t sure what to choose, are torn between a couple of products, or would prefer to let Mom pick for herself, then contact one of our authorized resellers and inquire about an Obagi gift certificate, so that you can be sure Mom loves her gift.

For Some Extra Pampering

Another wonderful gift idea to show Mom some hands-on love, is to find an Obagi provider near you, and treat Mom to an in-office treatment that will leave her floating on air. Treat Mom to one of our signature Blue Peel® treatments performed by professionally-trained specialists to help reveal younger-, healthier-looking skin one layer at a time, or a customized Obagi Facial to cleanse, hydrate, and revitalize the look of her skin, so that it glows for days!

If you take our advice, you will be on the nice list all year. Go on, treat Mom, because she deserves it!

 

*Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or higher together with a comprehensive sun protection program including wearing sun protective clothing, hats, sunglasses, and avoiding the sun between the hours of 10am - 2pm may help reduce the risk of premature skin aging.

Is it Time for a Cosmetic Spring Clean?

04.04.2017, 9:17 CDT | Posted In: Lines & Wrinkles, Signs of Aging, Health & Beauty, Products, Skin Care

We’ve all been there…

While getting ready for a special occasion, we reach for a beauty product that isn’t part of our normal routine. You know, the glittery navy blue eyeliner or that tube of extra lash plumping mascara. Maybe you reach for a special shade of sparkly lip-gloss that you don’t wear often. Then BOOM! You apply a dried out, goopy product to your freshly clean face. That is the worst right?

We’re here to remind you that this time of year is a good one for Spring cleaning, and not just our clothes closets, but our bathroom drawers and cabinets too.

It’s a great time of year to throw out those old skin care products that sit there cluttering up your precious space, and let’s be honest: you probably don’t even remember the last time that you used them. Remember, beauty products do go bad!

Read on to find out the main reasons that you know it’s time to throw a skin care product out, and get tossing!

Expired

Unopened beauty products have a longer shelf life, but once opened, their expiration date speeds up since they have been exposed to oxygen and toxins in the environment.

It is best to toss liquid products after a year of being open and powder products after two years. Mascara has a shelf life of three to four months, and should be frequently replaced because it can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Lipstick should be tossed after a year and gloss after six months.1 SPF products should be replaced yearly after open, as their effectiveness significantly decreases over time.

Color has Changed

Over time the color of a skincare product can change indicating a change in its chemical makeup or possibly indicating that unwanted agents have contaminated it. It is best to get rid of these products immediately, and you also don’t want to accidentally apply the wrong shade!

Been Open for Over a Year

When a product has been open for over a year, its purity and quality are very likely to have degraded. Exposure to oxygen introduces particles to the formulation that can change the makeup of the product or even promote harmful bacteria growth. When in doubt, toss it out!

Change in Texture and Consistency

When their texture and consistency have changed, it is sometimes best to toss your beloved products. This is because they may no longer apply evenly and can therefore leave you with unwanted variations in appearance.

No Longer Serves its Purpose in Springtime

Springtime is time for skin rejuvenation. You might want to think about switching your heavy moisturizer for a lighter lotion, since skin will not tend to be so dry in the warmer months.  

Above all else, there is no better feeling than a fresh skin care area or bag with little clutter and fresh products. Why not start off the Springtime with your best foot forward and a fresh face?

Prepare Your Skin For Winter With These Top Tips

02.02.2017, 11:43 CST | Posted In: Dry Skin, Health & Beauty, Products, Skin Care

woman's face, winter day

The New Year is finally here and that means we are right in the midst of Winter too. Being the coldest time of year with plummeting temperatures, this prevents many of us from leaving the warmth of indoor heating.

If you love being outdoors during the frosty season, you know that your skin is subject to harsh, drying effects from the cold, bitter air. But did you know that even indoor heating can take a toll on your skin?

This can get frustrating because whether you are indoors or outdoors, you just don’t seem to win when it comes to keeping your skin hydrated. This, however, is where you are wrong.

There are a few ways that you can amp up the moisture levels in your skin so that you can enjoy all the season has to offer without dealing with dry, flakey skin.

Follow these tips to enjoy hydrated skin that feels soothed and has a beautiful glow whether you choose to snuggle up on the couch or hit the slopes!

Moisturize

This tip may seem obvious, but you’ll be surprised how many people skip the moisturizer as they just don’t realize the benefits.

Whether your skin is oily or dry, a good moisturizer is essential to not only hydrate your skin, but to add a protective barrier that helps shield the skin against harsh weather conditions.

Apply a good moisturizer morning and night, and even reapply if you spend loads of time outdoors.

Choosing a moisturizer can be tricky, but here at Obagi we have various ones suited to your specific skin care needs.

Our Obagi Hydrate® provides 8 hour moisturization with innovative technology and all natural ingredients including avocado oil, shea butter, and mango butter.

Our Obagi Hydrate Luxe® provides ultra-rich, overnight moisturization and includes key biomimetic peptides that complements the body’s natural biorhythms for a rejuvenated-looking complexion.

As the name suggests, our Gentle Rejuvenation Advanced Night Repair does its job while you sleep, adding deep hydration to combat wrinkles.

If your skin is very oily and prone to breakouts, then our CLENZIderm M.D.™ Therapeutic Moisturizer is just what you need.

Click here to see how much we love our moisturizers!

Drink Up

The last thing you may want to do when it’s cold out, is sip on water all day, but a lack of hydration internally, will show up externally as dry, dull, and flakey skin.

You don’t have to drink cold water to boost your hydration though! Herbal teas count towards your water content for the day, so take a break from caffeine and sugary drinks, and treat your body to a comforting mug of herbal tea. There are endless varieties so you are sure to find one that tickles your tastebuds!

Invest in a Humidifier

If you have no idea what a humidifier is, you’ll want to know after learning how it can benefit your skin!

Humidifiers simply shoot a continual stream of moisture into the air, helping to put moisture back that may have been lost through artificial heating. This is a simple way to hydrate your skin without putting in any effort.

The bonus of humidifiers is that you can add essential oils into them. Add peppermint if you need to focus or lavender to help you relax at night. There’s an essential oil for every mood!

Follow these simple tips to help you enjoy a happier, hydrated skin in no time at all. Do you have any tips for Winter skin that are not mentioned here? Feel free to share in the comments below!

Fun Ways To Shed Those Extra Holiday Pounds

Fun Ways To Shed Those Extra Holiday Pounds

We all love the delicious festive treats that are a part of the holidays, but we may not love how they make our jeans a little harder to zip up. Ladies, you know what we’re talking about!

A few extra pounds may seem inevitable at this time of year, but don’t despair, because there are some very simple, and super fun, ways you can shed those extra pounds, no gym membership required!

Keep reading to find out a few ways you can get fit and healthy without a boring treadmill workout.

Get Creative In The Kitchen

The quickest way to shed those extra pounds is to watch what you eat. Exercising is pointless if you are filling your body with unhealthy calories every day in the form of processed carbs and sugar laden cookies.

We aren’t referring to dieting here, because that’s no fun, but rather to switching up a few staples in your pantry for healthier alternatives. Switch up processed sugar for coconut sugar, and purchase whole grains in the form of brown rice and quinoa, rather than white bread and white rice. A good rule of thumb is to ditch any refined white foods in your cupboard or fridge. White flour, rice, bread, pasta, etc. These foods may taste good, but they do absolutely nothing for you in terms of nutritional content, except leave you feeling sluggish and bloated.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring! Just check out these delicious superfoods you can munch on, or this nutrient rich smoothie you can enjoy without any guilt!

Go Ice-Skating

Take advantage of the frosty season, gather up your nearest and dearest, and enjoy a day or evening on the skating rink.

Ice-skating is so much fun it won’t even feel as if you are working out, but while you glide along the ice you are treating your body to a complete cardiovascular workout. This type of exercise mainly targets your leg muscles, but your abs stay engaged too as you constantly work on keeping your balance. You get your blood pumping, calories burning, and feel-good endorphins released for a “workout” that will leave you feeling happy and rejuvenated.

Try A Dance Workout

Ever tried a YouTube workout, but quickly given up after what feels like the thousandth squat? We know we have.

Instead of trying a traditional (and boring) strength workout, why not try something a little different like a dance workout? You know when you are home alone, you turn the music up and get your boogie on? Well, this is the same thing. The difference is that you have an instructor to guide you to really get the most out of your workout.

So put on some comfy clothes, tie your hair back, and get ready to get your groove on!

Join A Class or Team

Nothing will make you give up quicker than trying an activity or exercise program you don’t enjoy. That’s why we recommend finding a physical activity you truly enjoy and then signing up to be part of a class or team. This can be soccer, basketball, tennis, yoga, you name it, but just make sure it’s something you enjoy.

When you find an activity you love, and you feel part of a team, you will end up having such a good time, you won’t even notice those extra pounds melting off ‘til the next time you try on your skinny jeans.

Follow these fun tips and you’ll be feeling fit in no time! Remember, it’s not just about fitting into those favorite jeans, but rather about taking charge of your health and feeling good within yourself.

Can you think of any additional activities that are fun and don’t feel like a workout? Please share in the comments below!

6 Realistic 2017 New Year’s Resolutions

12.14.2016, 9:40 CST | Posted In: Health & Beauty

6 Realistic 2017 New Year’s Resolutions

In a few days from now, you’ll be getting ready to ring in the New Year with a celebration. Or perhaps New Year’s Eve for you involves relaxing on your couch with some scrumptious snacks and a special someone, while you enjoy the festivities on your television from the comfort of your home.

Either way, no matter how you choose to spend your New Year’s Eve, it will be here before you know it, and with a new year comes New Year’s resolutions. While New Year’s resolutions can be fun, did you know that the most people fail to stick to their New year’s resolutions? This is because most resolutions are unrealistic; for example, someone who never exercises saying they are going to work out every day for the next year. When you set the bar so high, it’s easy to fail, and New Year’s resolutions shouldn’t be about trying to impress anyone, but rather about achieving something on your own that will make you feel proud.

Here at Obagi, we are all about taking care of yourself, nurturing yourself, so that you are better able to deal with life’s challenges. Most of us are so busy running around and taking care of others that we often forget about ourselves.

Keep reading to find out a few loving (and realistic) ways you can pamper yourself starting in the new year so you can feel better within yourself, and set the perfect tone for the year ahead. Why not make this your best year yet?!

Treat Yourself To Some Daily TLC

Chances are you set a day aside every now and then to take some time out when life gets hectic. But why wait until you feel completely worn out to recharge your batteries? Instead, take some time out every day to pamper yourself so that you are able to navigate through everyday life in a more relaxed and mindful manner.

We move through our days, often without paying attention to small things, such as our breathing. Most of us breathe shallowly from our chests, but if you become more aware of your breathing and simply start every day with a few deep belly cleansing breaths, you won’t believe the difference you may feel! You don’t need a lot of time for this, so this is something you can easily squeeze into your day, no matter where you are.

Other great calming practices include yoga and meditation. Perhaps start with some beginner yoga videos on YouTube, or popular meditation apps that may include numerous meditations ranging from just one minute to over an hour. Also, be sure to do something that you love every single day. Even 5 minutes of reading, singing, dancing, you name it, will help to open up your creative flow, so that you can live your life on your terms.

Stick To A Regular Skin Care Regime

If 2016 has been the year of infrequent skin care, then remedy that going into 2017! The trick with sticking to something new is giving it 21 days to become a habit. After 21 days, it will simply become a part of your life, just like brushing your teeth.

Obagi offers skin care products and systems for all ages and skin types. A great way to get started is with our Obagi360® System, which includes everything you need for maintaining beautiful, healthy-looking skin. Even if your skin already looks great, now is the time to set the foundation for the future, to help your skin age gracefully.

Get Moving

So of course a staple resolution every New Year is exercising more. However, many people start exercising with the sole purpose of losing weight, rather than doing it for health and happiness. When you approach something from a health standpoint, knowing you are going to feel healthier, more energetic, and happier, it becomes easier to stick to, as when you stop doing it, you feel the effects.

So if exercising really isn’t your thing, then try new ways to get active and fit. Go for a beautiful walk in nature, run around with your dog outside, or take up a fun sport. Exercising doesn’t have to be boring! Aim to get your heart pumping for at least 30 minutes, 4 times a week, and just notice the positive changes that will occur.

Get Your Beauty Sleep

In this era of technology, this one can be a little tricky. We aren’t judging, but we know, like the rest of us, you probably find yourself scrolling through your phone late at night when you should be getting your beauty rest.

Contrary to popular belief, many of us are fine with just 6 or 7 hours of sleep, but these precious hours of shut eye need to be good quality sleep. This means preparing your body for a good night of rest in the right way. A warm bath, some lavender spray in your bedroom, a good book, and dim lighting are all wonderful ways to ease your mind into dreamland.

Say Yes More

Many of us are creatures of habit. This is normal human behavior, so you are likely to find yourself saying no to new experiences that seem a bit out there, or different from what you are used to.

Why not make 2017 your year of saying yes more? Don’t worry, we aren’t going to encourage you to try anything that makes you uncomfortable, but why not try that new dish at that trendy restaurant, or take a spontaneous road trip? Been wanting a new hairstyle? Well, go for it! You only live once, and you’ll be surprised at the doors that can open for you when you venture slightly out of your comfort zone.

Eat Clean

Drastic diets never work, and aren’t the best for you either, but making small and positive changes is an excellent way to enjoy a healthier 2017! Try a vegetarian dish at least once a week, drink more water, cut back on sugar or try healthier alternatives such as stevia, and ditch the processed and refined white foods. Being healthier starts slowly with small steps, and before you know it, you will be a pro at re-creating healthier versions of your favorite meals! Eating less processed foods may leave you feeling happier, more energetic, and your skin may thank you too!*

We hope these tips help you to enjoy a beautiful, bright and healthy New Year. Do you have any resolutions not on this list? Please share in the comments below!

6 Ways To Truly Enjoy The Holiday Season and Not Let Stress Get To You

11.30.2016, 16:55 CST | Posted In: Health & Beauty

6 Ways To Truly Enjoy The Holiday Season and Not Let Stress Get To You

The Holidays are often portrayed as a blissful, fun, and magical time in all the best holiday movies.

You know the scene... the snow falling gently outside, while the kids play a friendly game of Scrabble in the living room and the smell of gingerbread cookies fills the house.

Idyllic as that may seem, wouldn’t you agree when we say that in real life it’s a little more chaotic?

Of course it’s still a wonderful time of year, but with all the parties, planning, and gift buying it can quickly feel like it’s spiraling a little out of your control.

The holidays should be about togetherness; special times with those nearest and dearest to you while enjoying all the little things that make this time of year so beautiful: snowy winter landscape, candy cane hot chocolate, and ice skating with your loved ones.

This is why we have put together a simple guide with 6 of our best secrets to help you de-stress this holiday season, and make more time for the important things!

Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help

Why juggle all the holiday chores yourself when you can get your family involved and make a day out of it?

Set a day aside right before the busy season begins to clean your house from top to bottom, allowing your home to become holiday ready so you can focus on other things, like perfecting that caramel pecan pie!

Get your family involved, and even make a game out of it so that the kids enjoy helping out.

Get Your Holiday Shopping Done Early

We’ve all been there... leaving our holiday shopping ‘til the last minute. All this causes is more stress and double guessing!

The holidays aren’t all about giving gifts, but if you do like to get your friends and family a little something to show how much you care, try to start earlier this year and make it a goal to be done at least 2 weeks prior to the big day. You’ll save so much time and take a lot of pressure off of yourself.

Make Time For Yourself

This doesn’t have to mean booking yourself in for a spa day, if you love to play guitar and rarely get time for it these days… allow yourself 30 minutes per day to remember old tunes you used to love playing. Or paint that picture you’ve been thinking about all year.

Do what relaxes you for 30 minutes per day… this can do wonders for your mind, especially around the holiday season.

Eat Your Greens AND Fats!

We know how tempting it can be to eat all the cookies, pies, and tarts the holiday season brings… and we’re in no way, shape, or form saying that you should stay away from them…

What you should try to do is one healthy habit per day throughout the holiday season whether it be having a nutritious smoothie each day, a plate of greens with each meal, or even better, a green juice once per day. Not only will this help keep you from overindulging, getting your daily greens will help you stay healthy throughout those holiday parties and get-togethers.

The best foods to help you curb overeating are healthy fats such as avocados, nuts, healthy oils (extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil) and vegetables.

Move Your Body

Speaking of keeping your body healthy this season, don’t skimp on the exercise! If you live in California (where we are), you have no excuse not to get outside for a brisk morning walk. If you’re feeling really motivated, how about a hike?

If it’s snowing in your neck of the woods this holiday season, why not try a group yoga class or get moving right in your living room with a quick video workout.

Laugh A Little (or a lot)!

What are the holidays without a bit of fun! Get out your favorite holiday DVD’s or turn on Netflix and spend some quality time with the family and a bowl of popcorn.

If holiday movies aren’t your thing, why not catch the latest stand up from a renowned comedian?

Nothing helps you de-stress quite like a bit of laughter.

Holiday Gift Ideas Courtesy Of Obagi

The holidays are right around the corner and it is now the perfect time to get many things done in preparation!

One of the biggest tasks on everyone’s list is presents for your near and dear, and because most of us leave this until the last minute, it’s one of the most stressful tasks on our holiday schedules.

Instead of doing what you probably do every year; leaving the gift buying ‘til a few days before Christmas, when the malls are packed with frustrated buyers in the same boat as you, why not purchase some gifts from your skin care professional’s practice so that you can forego the malls altogether! Sounds like bliss right?

This year, buy a gift that loved ones can truly benefit from, and let us help you with your choices. Everyone wants beautiful and healthy-looking skin, so keep on reading to find out which products will leave your friends and family with healthy-looking, glowing, and radiant skin all year long!

For The 20 or 30 Year Old Skin Care Lover

Do you have a 20 or 30 something best friend or sibling that prefers a straightforward skin care routine without all the fuss? They like to take care of their skin, but hate using a million bottles to achieve great results?

If so, then our Obagi360® System may make a great gift for them. Three products in this system can help maintain youthful-looking skin by helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve skin texture, and refine complexion. Packaged in an attractive kit box, this is one gift that will have your intended recipient grinning from ear to ear!

For The Beach Bunny

We all know that one person who seems to have been born on the beach. They simply thrive during the glorious heat of summer, but seem to wither away in winter and you’ll often hear them complaining that “it’s just too cold!”

They are likely to be heading off to a warm destination over the holidays so a terrific gift for them would be one of our sunscreens. Our sunscreens contain an array of ingredients along with unique technologies to provide protection against the harmful effects of the sun.* Send your friend off with some protection when gifting them with one of our sun protection products!

For Your Mom

We can’t forget mom! Our moms take most of the brunt of the holiday work by cooking up delicious feasts over Thanksgiving and the holidays, so why not show her how much you care by presenting her with one of our ELASTIderm® Eye Products?

These products contain clinically supported ingredients for firmer-looking and more resilient-looking skin around the delicate eye area, helping mom to look wide awake and refreshed - no one would believe she’s spent all day in the kitchen! Mom will truly appreciate such a thoughtful gift, we guarantee it.

There you have it! Trust us here at Obagi, and just watch how happy you make your loved ones this holiday season.

 

*Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or higher together with a comprehensive sun protection program including wearing sun protective clothing, hats, sunglasses, and avoiding the sun between the hours of 10am - 2pm may help reduce the risk of premature skin aging.
