Beautiful Skin, On-the-Go!

As the mercury climbs higher and the kids are finally out of school, you’ve probably begun thinking about all the exciting destinations you want to visit this summer. Staying on top of the latest packing tips can make your travels less stressful while making sure you bring along the essentials you need—such as your skin care products that will keep you looking your best wherever you are! After all, jet-setting is all about staying glamorous on-the-go.

Luckily, with these convenient travel tips, you’ll have no problem getting from point A to B this summer while maintaining Obagi Skin HealthTM.

Limit your luggage
While you might be tempted to pack anything and everything so you’ll have all the comforts of home with you on your journey, this isn’t the most efficient way to get anywhere. Not only will excess baggage make it difficult to get through security, but it’s also difficult to carry and costs more to transport. To make your airport experience less painful, limit your luggage to one carry-on and one checked bag. But as you reduce your load, make sure to hold on to products that will keep your skin fresh as you travel. Airplanes are infamous for their dry atmosphere and poor air quality, which can leave your skin feeling tight and uncomfortable, so make sure to pack hydrating lotions in your carry-on bag to combat these effects.

Pack for your destination
As you pack your bags, choose items that you’ll need based on your destination. Consider the climate and the activities you’re expecting to do, and plan your luggage around that. If you expect hot, humid weather, you may want to avoid thick, rich creams and opt for a more lightweight formula. Packing plenty of sunscreen for a stay at a beachside resort goes without saying but remember, even if you’re skiing in the mountains, the sun can still affect your skin!

Travel size
When you’re considering which personal beauty or skin care products to bring on your trip, it’s best to stick with travel-sized bottles that are less than 3 ounces in your carry-on luggage. While you’ll want to limit the number of containers you bring onboard the plane, make sure to pack all the essentials of your skin care system to be ready for anything. One way to make sure you don’t forget any of your go-to products is to pack the Obagi Nu-Derm® System Travel Set—a travel-sized version of our all-in-one, anti-aging system that transforms skin for a beautiful, healthy-looking complexion. All products within this kit are TSA-approved sizes for safety and convenience so you can get the professional skin care that you love wherever you go.

Whether you’re traveling by air, land, or sea, the Nu-Derm Travel Set is the perfect travel companion and beauty solution to address any luggage problems that may come your way. What’s your must-have skin care item when you’re on vacation?

Beat the Summer Heat With Sun Smart Beauty

Beat the Summer Heat With Sun Smart Beauty

With summer vacation just starting and the Fourth of July quickly approaching, you may be planning trips to the beach, lazy days in the backyard hammock, and neighborhood barbecues that last well into the evening—so you’re going to need plenty of ways to protect yourself from the ultraviolet rays (UV) and heat of the sun!

If you’re concerned about sun damage such as wrinkles or brown spots—kick-start your sun protection regimen by following these simple tips for healthier, radiant-looking skin all season long!

Stay covered
When venturing outside for a mimosa on the patio or to cheer on the Fourth of July parade procession, it’s important to wear appropriate clothing to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun. A basic tank top has a sun protection factor (SPF) rating of less than 15,1 so wearing longer attire, like a chic tunic or maxidress, is preferable. While lighter-colored clothing will deflect some of the sun’s rays to keep you cooler, darker apparel offers greater UV protection. Or, if you’re feeling fun and flirty, go the celebrity route and don a pair of oversized sunglasses—good for sun protection and hiding from the paparazzi!

Our Favorite, Sunscreen
While your wardrobe will offer some assistance, you should also use an ample amount of sunscreen to cover your beautiful skin—especially when sunbathing or swimming. Sunscreen is one of the keys to radiant, youthful-looking skin. It is recommended that you apply a broad- spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher over your entire body, remembering to cover all exposed skin—even your ears! Additionally, make sure to apply 30 minutes before heading outside, and reapply at least every 2 hours or right after activities that involve water.

Stay hydrated
In the height of summer, exposure to sun, chlorine, and salt water can dry out your skin,2 so it’s more vital than ever to drink plenty of water in order to avoid losing your signature cool. Not only will this quench your thirst, but staying well hydrated will keep your energy levels up to prevent heat exhaustion3 as you spend an afternoon shopping down the boardwalk or catching up with friends at brunch. Try to keep a bottle of fresh water with you whenever possible, and avoid too many drinks like beer or soda that will zap your hydration. For a refreshing spin on a summertime favorite, drop a slice of fresh lemon in your glass of ice water—a healthier alternative to sugary lemonade.

With the Fourth of July and vacation right around the corner, how do you plan on beating the heat as you embark on exciting summer adventures?

It’s Clear━Say No to Acne!

It’s Clear━Say No to Acne!

We all remember the devastation of discovering a blemish minutes before a big dance in high school, but just because we aren't teens anymore doesn't mean pimple problems are gone for good. Unfortunately, the blemish before the big dance has been replaced with the blemish before the big meeting. Since acne is a lifelong nemesis for many, there’s never a bad time to become better educated about ways to prevent and treat acne breakouts.

Beyond chocolate as the culprit. Acne starts in your skin's oil glands. Normally, this oil, known as sebum, travels up your follicles carrying dead skin cells to the surface of your skin. However, your pores can become blocked by an increase in hormones that stops the oil from reaching your skin and causes bacteria to grow in the follicle.1 Your body takes action against infection, causing the area to become inflamed, which results in those small, dreaded red sores, as well as blackheads and whiteheads. While your body learned to cope with the abundance of oil produced throughout adolescence, you’ve probably resigned yourself to ride out the annoying flare-ups since. Well, you’re not alone—adult acne affects more than half of all women and a quarter of all men at some time in their adult lives.2

Don’t surrender. If you suspect that your cosmetics may be contributing to your blemishes, try to spend a few weeks makeup-free and observe the results. It's also important to cut down on stress and stick to a regular skin care regimen, which includes washing your face every morning and evening. While that’s a great start, there are times when it may not be enough. Supplement your regimen with a product that helps treat the condition with the Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System. CLENZIderm M.D. is the only prescription-strength acne system that contains a unique form of 5% benzoyl peroxide designed specifically to penetrate to the root of your acne problems.

Clear skin fast and help maintain a healthy complexion for a lifetime with CLENZIderm M.D. Also, be sure to see your dermatologist at least once a year—visit our Physician Finder to find a doctor who can recommend the Obagi products that are right for you.

Delicious Food Tips to Feed Your Skin

06.19.2012, 16:25 CDT | Posted In: Prevention & Protection, Signs of Aging, Uneven Skin Tone & Dark Spots, Health & Beauty, Skin Care

Eating fish, cutting with fork

Let’s face it—you have to stay on top of your skin care routine if you want to look and feel fantastic year-round. Being diligent about applying sunscreen and regularly using Obagi® products are definitely two great ways to help keep your appearance in tip-top condition, but consuming the right foods is also an important way to help round out your daily skin care regimen. After all, you are what you eat!

Here are three nutritious foods that will help keep your skin looking beautiful and healthy through all seasons:

  • Oranges. Citrus fruits like oranges are said to be among the best foods for your skin’s health. The idea is to make sure you’re receiving plenty of Vitamin C, which can support your skin.1 Try to work at least one citrus fruit into your diet every single day—it can even be as simple as eating one for breakfast or for a mid-afternoon snack.
  • Green leafy veggies. If you’ve never been a fan of salads, perhaps now it’s time to give the greens another try. Studies have shown that many vegetables contain nutrients that support healthy skin and hair.2 Because of this, incorporate into your diet a wide variety of dark veggies such as spinach, arugula, and lettuce.
  • Salmon. Perfect for both summer barbecues and romantic evenings at home, salmon is jam-packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which is why this delicious fish has been hailed for its skin-rejuvenating properties. These essential fats are emollients, natural moisturizers that may help refresh dry skin. It’s a win-win situation no matter how you like to prepare it.

And if you need something else to perk up your skin, try caffeine! But instead of reaching for another cup of joe, try our ELASTIderm® Eye Serum—a unique formula with the added boost of caffeine to help reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness! Plus, our innovative rollerball applicator makes putting it on every day a cinch—easier than ordering a nonfat-no-foam-extra-ice-triple-mocha-latte-macchiato!

With so many delicious ways to help keep your skin looking and feeling radiant, you never know what unexpected tip might become the next staple of your skin care routine. Do you have any other food suggestions for helping your skin look its best?

This Summer, Keep Obagi Between You and the Sun With Obagi Nu-Derm® Sun Shield SPF 50!

06.14.2012, 17:02 CDT | Posted In: Lines & Wrinkles, Prevention & Protection, Uneven Skin Tone & Dark Spots, Skin Care

This Summer, Keep Obagi Between You and the Sun With Obagi Nu-Derm<sup>®</sup> Sun Shield SPF 50!

By now, you’ve all heard about the effects of the sun on your skin and the importance of protection (especially if you’ve been following our blog!). In fact, sun damage accumulates over the years and can result in uneven pigmentation, sagging skin, wrinkles, and even skin cancer.1 But it’s also very preventable. With proper precautions and using the right skin care products, you can enjoy the sun without the burn!

There are many things you can do to protect yourself and your skin from the sun. Of course, sunscreen is a must! It may take a few more minutes to slather on the SPF before you go out, but sunscreen is one of the most effective ways to help protect against the sun’s damaging rays. Make sure you look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen, which means it helps protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays━such as the Nu-Derm Sun Shield SPF 50!  But this fan favorite is NOT just any other sunscreen. While many sunscreens can leave your skin feeling greasy after application, our broad-spectrum Nu-Derm Sun Shield goes on completely sheer in an elegant, matte finish that feels great on your skin. In fact, SELF Magazine voted it the best sunscreen for the face thanks to its nongreasy formula and sheer coverage━perfect for application during the sweltering heat of summer!

But that’s not all that Obagi has to offer for lifelong protection from the sun. Sure, Nu-Derm Sun Shield is one of our favorites, but we also understand that certain skin types have different skin care needs or require extra care. From oily skin to sensitive skin or conditions like rosacea, we have products that cater to your concerns. You can help keep your skin feeling fresh and, most importantly, protected all year long with our other sunscreens, including Nu-Derm Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35, Rosaclear® Skin Balancing Sun Protection SPF 30,* or our Nu-Derm Physical UV Block SPF 32 with 18.5% zinc oxide.

With so many different sunscreens to choose from, which is your favorite? Comment below to share which ones and what you like about them!

Happy Father’s Day from Obagi!

Wiley Lowe and kids

Father’s Day is fast approaching—so to celebrate all the dads and men in our lives, today we’re focusing on men’s skin care.

Men have come a long way in their skin care routines since the days when they would lather up with a damp washcloth and a bar of Ivory soap. Taking care of their skin is the single most important thing men can do for their appearance—just ask 45-year-old father of two Wiley Lowe. “We tend to have greater sun damage and have had less years with good skin care. We tend to look older than our female counterparts because of this. I used the Nu-Derm® line on the advice of a friend who is a plastic surgeon (no, I haven’t had surgery). Within a short period of time it was like someone grabbed the hands of the clock and sent them backward!”

As a television host, actor, professional speaker, and lecturer to 30,000 people a year, Wiley realizes, like many men, the benefits of great skin. “When you see your face blown up 25 feet wide, you really want great looking skin. Thank you for giving it to me.” 

Good skin can help anyone look and feel confident. Obagi® products are a great investment for a man’s skin! As Wiley puts it, “It’s not good genes, it’s Obagi!”

If you’re tired of getting dad the same patterned ties and striped dress shirts, try something new this year. Take him to an authorized Obagi provider, where he can consult with a skin care physician about what Obagi system or products would be best for his skin. This will show him you really care.

If you have an Obagi success story, please share it with us in the comments below. We love hearing from fans like Wiley who have made a commitment to healthy, younger-looking skin.

Happy Father’s Day from all of us at Obagi Medical Products!

​Are you looking and feeling your best at work?

06.05.2012, 15:38 CDT | Posted In: Signs of Aging, Health & Beauty

Person doing yoga, wellness blog

In today’s busy, get-it-done-yesterday world, it can be difficult to find time for the most important person: yourself. That’s why we’re taking some time off in June to celebrate Professional Wellness Month! We could all use a reminder now and then that looking and feeling fantastic—yes, even while at work—are key to our overall feeling of health. If you count yourself among the 40 percent of Americans who consider their job to be very stressful,1 Professional Wellness Month is the perfect opportunity to get back into the habit.

To better enjoy the 9-to-5 grind, consider these useful tips.

  • Keep active. We’ve all been there—some weeks just seem to slog on endlessly, while others are over before you know it. The secret? You must keep active! Sitting at a computer for 8 hours straight takes a toll on your body, and you can bet you’ll start to feel it by the time Friday rolls around. Do yourself a favor by taking a 10-minute break at least once every hour or two. Head outside, breathe in some fresh air, and go for a walk around the block—your body will thank you.

    There are also small ways you can get in a bit of exercise even as you’re sitting. Try doing butt crunches while in front of the computer or bringing small weights into the office and pumping a bit of iron on your lunch break. Who knows? You may even start a trend.
     
  • Take time for you. While you’re at it, try to avoid eating lunch at your desk. It can be difficult to convince yourself that you have 30 to 60 minutes to spare, but it’s better to stay a bit late than not to have taken any breaks throughout the day. Be kind to yourself—if you feel the stress starting to overwhelm your psyche, close your eyes, breathe deeply, and take a moment to decompress.
     
  • Relax. Stress can have a number of negative effects on your body, including your skin. Relaxing can help you feel better, which may lead to a more beautiful you on the outside as well as on the inside. It also pays to experience a breather every morning with a skin care routine that you know can deliver results, such as one of our Obagi ® Systems, which are created to cleanse, hydrate, tone, and refresh your skin - making a real difference in its appearance.

Professional Wellness Month is the perfect opportunity to take a step back and figure out what you can do to improve your well-being. If you’ve been meaning to take care of yourself a bit better, now’s your chance!

Get Ready for Summer!

Colorful sandals on beach

Summer is right around the corner, and you know what that means—time to open up the windows, breathe in the fresh air, and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. Before you get to show off that new bathing suit and hit the beach, here are a few other things to consider to look and feel great all season long!

  • Apply sunscreen properly. Saying “yes” to sunscreen is one of the best ways to protect yourself from the harsh rays of the sun. Be generous with your application and make sure to reapply at least once every 2 hours—more frequently if you’re sweating or jumping in the pool. Also, try to slather it on at least 30 minutes before going outside so you can get the most protection. Obagi Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF not only shields against UVB and UVA rays, its non-greasy formula applies completely sheer in an elegant, matte finish that feels great on your skin.*
  • Buy a new hat. There's no better time to show off a stylish hat than the spring and summer (other than a royal wedding, of course!). Between wide-brimmed options, caps and yes, even visors, there’s bound to be something out there for every outfit. Remember, hats will allow you to stay fashionable while protecting your face from harmful UV rays.
  • Find your perfect sandals. Be kind to your feet. It can be easy to wear out sandals after a year or two, which is also a great excuse to buy a new pair! Stylish ones are always nice, but try to find something that keeps you comfortable. And because nothing goes better with new sandals than smooth feet and freshly polished toes, treat yourself to a pedicure! Also, don’t forget to apply sunscreen. Your feet deserve the same sun protection as your face and arms, but often get overlooked.
  • Give your skin some additional TLC. This is the prime time for showing off some skin, so why not take some steps to make sure yours is at its best? The winter can cause skin dryness, so be sure to moisturize and exfoliate your body so it looks and feels soft and supple. Sunless tanners are also a great way to get a gorgeous glow.

Gearing up for the summer isn’t difficult, but it does take a little bit of prep work. What else are you doing to get ready for the warm weather 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.

Celebrate Healthy, Beautiful Women During National Women’s Health Week!

05.14.2012, 16:56 CDT | Posted In: Signs of Aging, Health & Beauty, Skin Care

Celebrate Healthy, Beautiful Women During National Women’s Health Week!

It’s National Women’s Health Week! Each year, one week (beginning on Mother’s Day) is devoted to promoting women’s health and empowering women to make their health a top priority. If you have yet to get into the spirit of National Women’s Health Week, now is the perfect time to start! After all, embracing a healthier lifestyle means a healthier you—and that means healthier skin, too!

Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to hit the gym 7 days a week, especially if you’re just getting into the habit. In fact, there are a few small changes you can make today that can have a large impact on your well-being:

Take the stairs. Did you know that walking up a flight of stairs burns roughly 5 calories every minute? It’s true! This may seem like a small number, but it can start to add up. In fact, exercise has many great skin benefits, including increased blood flow and oxygen delivery to your skin cells.1 You know that post-workout “glow” you notice? It’s real! So tomorrow, instead of making a beeline for the elevator, try the healthier alternative.

Supercharge your lunchtime salad. Eating fresh veggies is an important first step in improving your health, but you can kick the impact of that salad up a notch with a few simple additions. Try sprinkling flaxseed on top for an extra nutritional punch. Not only will you start to feel better, but your skin will likely improve as well. In fact, research has shown that consuming higher amounts of linoleic acid, the main ingredient in flaxseed, may prevent skin dryness.2

Drink lots of water. Believe it or not, staying hydrated is one of the easiest ways to feel great inside and out. After all, our bodies are made almost entirely of water, and with your skin being the largest organ, it should get plenty of hydration. Try to consume at least 8 glasses a day and watch what it can do for your skin!

Rest up. Many people have trouble sleeping at night, which can lead to professional and personal difficulties. If you feel fatigued, make an effort to catch a full 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night this week. This may mean closing the laptop and shutting off the television as much as an hour earlier than your body is used to, but you’ll thank yourself when you have the best morning and glowing skin the next day.

All of these changes can have you feeling great on the inside—couple that with the addition of an antioxidant serum like Obagi Professional-C Serum to leave your outside feeling and looking just as fresh! Our Professional-C Serums are specially designed to deliver daily antioxidant protection, while leaving your skin feeling silky soft.
