you are a baby, your skin
is perfect. It is soft, firm and glows with health. But as you mature,
usually sometime in your 30's, your skin begins to lose its ability
to stay healthy. Collagen breaks down. The skin loses its elasticity.
Cell turnover and the flow of moisture from deep within begins to slow.
The damage gets worse from sun, stress, environmental assaults and smoking.
The results may be tight, dry, blotchy skin. Even wrinkles and discoloration
goal of the Obagi Nu-Derm system is to create soft, radiant-looking
skin, to increase skin tolerance to environmental assault and to restore
normal skin functions. The Nu-Derm system corrects surface discoloration
and blemishes. Importantly, it also penetrates into the skin to stimulate
skin cell renewal, improve circulation and help rebuild collagen. The
normal barrier function of the skin is restored, making the skin less
sensitive and better able to hydrate properly. After six weeks (one
skin cycle), new skin cells emerge to the surface.
