The goal of the Obagi Nu-Derm system is to create soft, radiant-looking skin; to increase skin tolerance to environmental assualt, and to restore normal skin functions. In the first phase of the treatment, when your skin is red and dry, you may need to add the "Control" step to minimize these temporary discomforts. All creams should be rubbed in gently until totally absorbed before proceeding.
Step 1: Prepare. In this step, you cleanse and tone to make your skin more receptive to the correction step.
Choose: Gentle Cleanser OR Foaming Gel AND Toner
Step 2: Correct. This step repairs the damage to the surface of the skin, correcting hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and smoothing skin roughness.
Choose: Exfoderm, Exfoderm Forte, Cffectives Eye Contour 5% Serum (for crows feet area) OR Cffectives High Potency 10% Serum (for face, neck and chest)
Step 3: Protect. This step prevents further damage from harmful UVA and UVB rays, as well as protect the sensitive eye area.
Choose: Physical UV Block SPF 32, OR Healthy Skin Protector SPF 35
Control Step: Sometimes, especially at the beginning of the treatment, your skin may be sensitive, dry or have a reaction. As time goes by, your skin will become healthier and in less need of control agents.
Choose: Tolereen, Action OR Eye Cream
