Happy Father’s Day from Obagi!

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!


Important Safety Information for Clear, Blender, and Sunfader


People with prior history of sensitivity or allergic reaction to this product or any of its ingredients should not use it. The safety of topical hydroquinone use during pregnancy or in children (12 years and under) has not been established.


Avoid contact with eyes, nose, mouth, or lips. In case of accidental contact, patient should rinse eyes, nose, mouth, or lips with water and contact physician.

Sunscreen use is an essential aspect of hydroquinone therapy because even minimal sunlight exposure sustains melanocytic activity.

The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the general population is unknown and probably low. Sulfite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic than in nonasthmatic people.


Treatment should be limited to relatively small areas of the body at one time since some patients experience a transient skin reddening and a mild burning sensation, which does not preclude treatment.

Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with topical hydroquinone. It is also not known whether hydroquinone can cause fetal harm when used topically on a pregnant woman or affect reproductive capacity. It is not known to what degree, if any, topical hydroquinone is absorbed systemically. Topical hydroquinone should be used on pregnant women only when clearly indicated.
