In April I started a 12 week program with the Laser and Skin Clinic to treat sun damage and reduce the amount of sun damage that my skin is getting for the future as well. If you follow me on social media you’ll know I am a sun worshipper and I adore some warm weather. The damage the sun can do is something I’m not a fan of, however. It’s something I’ve grown more conscious of as I’ve gotten older and I really just want to make sure I am protecting my skin as much as I can.
I visited the Laser and Skin Clinic and met with Anna, who gave me a consultation and started me on the Obagi Fx Skin Program. Obagi Fx System is an option for clients who want a homecare skin program to treat sundamage (pigmentation) without the downtime of peels or lasers. The system can be used in conjunction with superficial peels to achieve a faster result. The peels take no more than 20/30 mins and I experienced light peeling on my face after them. It’s not super obvious, and can be covered with make-up.
I’m 8 weeks into the program, and although it was an adjustment to get used to this new routine at the start. I could do it with my eyes closed now, its takes only a few mins each morning and evening and I’ve seen a huge improvement already – not only in the pigmentation on my skin, but also in my complexion. My skin is blemish free and so much smoother since I started the program.
I have two different skincare routines in the morning and in the evening – you can see the detail of these below.
In the morning, I alternate between Obagi Clenziderm and Obagi C-Cleansing Gel Cleanser to wash face. Clean off with wet face cloth. Add 3 drops of Vitamin C, 2 squirts of SPF 40, and a pea size amount of the Exfoliating day cream before continuing with your make up routine. Continue Reading…
