Essential Skin Care from Obagi Nu-Derm and Somme Institute

When you're concerned about a chronic skin condition like signs of aging or acne, it's easy to focus on finding the right treatments to improve the health of your skin and minimize the appearance of those imperfections. While it may seem logical to worry most about the products meant to correct the complexion, the truth is that you cannot improve the look and feel of your skin through treatments alone. Healthy skin requires a full regimen of products working together to cleanse, balance and hydrate your skin tissue. These products are sometimes called skin care essentials because of how vital they are to skin health. Today, I'll be focusing on some of the top-rated and most effective essentials from two well-known skin care collections: Obagi and Somme Institute.

Renew Your Skin with Obagi Nu-Derm

The Obagi skin care collection was launched in 1988 with the release of Obagi Nu-Derm system, a complete daily skin care collection that uses cosmeceutical ingredients to minimize signs of aging. Since the initial founding of the company, the Obagi skin collection has expanded to include many additional solutions for the complexion, including Obagi Clear for acne, Obagi Elastiderm for lost skin strength and Obagi C Rx for hyperpigmentation. In addition, the company produces professional-strength formulas that must be administered, dispensed or prescribed by a doctor, including the Obagi Blue Peel and Obagi tretinoin.

For today's post, I want to focus on the Obagi system that started it all--Obagi Nu-Derm! Sometimes called Derm Obagi, this system works at the cellular level to stimulate cellular repair and reduce the prominence of a wide variety of signs of skin damage, including fine lines, sagging skin and hyperpigmentation.

A regimen based on Nuderm should begin with the Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel. This nourishing cleanser uses oat extracts and other natural ingredients to remove dirt and impurities from the skin, and Obagi reviews online reveal that the formula is very effective at eliminating even waterproof makeup. Because the formula is of natural origin, it won't irritate damaged skin or deprive it of moisture and make fine lines more prominent.

After using the Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel, you should follow up with the Obagi Nu-Derm Toner. This formula subtly adjusts the pH of your skin, helping to alleviate both signs of dryness and excessive oil production. In addition, the formula primes the skin and helps other Obagi products work more effectively, so that you get more out of the treatments in your regimen. This is true whether you're using Nu-Derm treatments like Obagi Blender or treatments from other Obagi lines like the Obagi C Serum.

Go High Tech with Somme Institute

In 1994, the Somme Institute was founded by a team of physicians and scientists who were all dedicated to learning more about the way the complexion ages. Their hope was to develop a skin care regimen that could fight against this unknown aging mechanism and repair previous damage. After studying the effects of UV energy, the team came up with an effective anti-aging skin care solution--MDT5.

A blend of vitamins and proteins delivered to the skin through an advanced technology, MDT5 encourages the skin cells to repair themselves and provides antioxidant protection to the complexion. The company takes a unique approach to skin care, with every product in the Somme skin care collection containing MDT5.

Instead of having several lines for a woman to choose from, Somme formulates just one range. The skin care regimen includes essentials like the Somme Institute Nourishing Cleanser, which can be mixed and matched with the treatments that will best suit your needs, such as a Somme Institute Serum or Somme Institute Transport. This simplified way of presenting products has earned Somme accolades from skin care experts and in online Somme Institute reviews written by customers.

Combining Treatments with Essentials

After you've chosen your skin care essentials for daily care, you're ready to choose the right treatments to address your dermatological concerns. Which products you select will depend entirely on your skin care needs and your beauty goals.

If you're opting for Obagi, you should apply your treatments after using the Obagi Nu-Derm Toner. Don't feel restricted to using only the treatments in the Nu-Derm range, such as the Obagi Exfoderm exfoliator; you can get great results from any Obagi serum or Obagi peel. Prioritize your biggest skin care concerns and then find the products that will help you achieve your desired results. For instance, if hyperpigmentation is your chief worry, then choosing one treatment from the Obagi C collection could be ideal. If your signs of aging are very advanced, you may even want to consider visiting a dermatologist for an Obagi Blue chemical peel.

Somme Institute treatments should be applied immediately after the cleanser. To lessen the depth of wrinkles and diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation, you can use the Somme Institute Transport. This formula combines alpha and beta hydroxy acids with MDT5 to remove dead skin cells while rejuvenating and strengthening the newer, healthy ones that lie deep within the tissue. The Somme Institute Serum can be used immediately after the Transport formula or independently following the cleanser. It contains ingredients to tone and tighten sagging skin while encouraging the manufacturing of collagen and elastin to reduce the likelihood of lost elasticity becoming more severe.

Ultimately, you'll need to conduct some beauty research of your own to determine which skin care essentials and treatments are right for you. Remember that there's no one-size-fits-all approach to skin care; you may need to experiment to find which products from Obagi, Somme Institute and other brands work best for you.
