Becoming a mom is one of life’s landmark experiences. And as much as you’re learning how to care for the new little people in your world, taking care of yourself becomes both harder and so much more important. There’s a reason the flight attendant says to put on your own oxygen mask first before helping others.

When I became a new mom, I grappled with post-partum anxiety and depression and by the time my second child came, it felt like I was a drowning person fighting for air. I got serious about taking care of myself so that I could have the stamina to care for my kids. I delved into nutritional remedies, blocked out the time I needed to recharge, and worked with my doctor to bring my hormones into balance. But even after I was feeling like myself again, there was one area that made me feel self-conscious and frustrated no matter how many juice cleanses I did or supplements I took: my skin. I had melasma, a condition brought on by the hormones of pregnancy that caused large brown patches on my upper lip and forehead.

I tried over-the-counter solutions, but even after months of faithful application and sun-protection, my hyperpigmentation was no better than when I’d started. I finally decided to talk with a dermatologist, and that’s when Obagi Nu-derm came into the picture.

I’ve been using the Nu-Derm system for five weeks now, and I’m already seeing recession of the melasma. My doctor and I discussed laser treatment initially, but when she saw me 4 weeks after starting Obagi Nu-Derm, we both felt that the system was working so well, it alone could remedy my melasma. We decided to hold off on other treatments and follow up after another 8 weeks with just the Nu-Derm system.

There was a time when my melasma was so embarrassing that I couldn’t fathom ever leaving the house without makeup again. Just last week I went 4 days without applying any makeup at all. I’m still on my Obagi journey right now, but the results I’ve already seen have given me confidence in the products and, ultimately, in myself again.

Being a mom doesn’t mean you have to accept a lesser version of yourself. Just the opposite, I want my children to see the importance I’m placing on self-care so that they learn to value and care for themselves too as they become more independent. I can only assume that having a mother who feels confident, free, and empowered sets an example that they will want to follow.

It all started 2 yrs ago. I was seeing my plastic surgeon follow a bilateral mascetomy. After dealing with breast cancer and 4 surgeries, I wanted to reward myself. Dr said “no, you’re not ready for a facelift!” Well, then I want my face to glow like your receptionist, nurse, etc. Obagi he tells me. So I purchased the products. I warned my girlfriends at lunch shortly after I started the regimen, that I will be peeling for a short bit of time. They just shrugged their shoulders. Well, two years later, every single gal at lunch that day have now started the program, as so has other girlfriends and sister!!

I swear, that there isn’t a week that goes by that I don’t get at least 2-3 compliments on my complexion. So many times, from complete strangers! When I’m with my grandchildren, they think I’m the mother! I’m 61 yrs old!! I don’t miss a night or morning maintaining my own glow! Love feeling so young! Love that my girlfriends are using Obagi, too!

I discovered Obagi when staying with a friend at an equestrian competition about a year ago. As a teen I’ve suffered from all the typical skin blemishes and irritations that teens face, but as an equestrian athlete I have the additional problem of being out in the sun riding and competing all the time. I don’t have a lot of time for a complex skin routine and have used a lot of different products, but when I first “borrowed” my friend’s Obagi, I knew I had found a keeper! I did wind up ordering my own products, the Obagi Clenziderm Daily Care and Pore Therapy and they have been a mainstay in my skincare routine. I’ve found that they definitely help sooth my skin and prevent blemishes and redness. I’ve never used another product that is as effective in helping me maintain my skin. Thanks so much to Obagi!!

Exactly one year ago, at the age of 43, I went from being a preschool teacher of 18 years to a police officer. It has been one of the toughest years I can remember with the testing and training, but I did it. It is not uncommon in this field to see men in their 40’s change their career path but it is almost unheard of for a woman to become a police officer in her 40’s. About that same time I took a good look at the sun damage and wrinkles beginning to form on my face and decided I needed new skin to go along with the new job.

I have been using Obagi- C rx system for approximately 2 months and I cannot believe the difference in my skin. My husband cannot believe the difference and my squad mates don’t believe me when I tell them my age. My skin glows and the sun spots are gone. I used the Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50 this summer during the long, hot, 10 hour shifts and it kept the sun spots from coming back. I will not use anything else from now on but Obagi.

I LOVE Obagi, and here are just two of the many reasons why: an old friend whom I have not seen in many years saw pictures of me on Facebook and sent me this message, “What is your secret? You look just like I remember you from HIGH SCHOOL!!” Keep in mind, our high school careers were many, many years ago!! Then, a few weeks later, my main squeeze and I had the following conversation: he said “What are you using on your skin, you never seem to age.” I said “Just the Obagi, which I’ve used for years.” and he said “Well keep using it, your skin is amazing!” This made me do a happy dance!!

I giggle to think I’m over 60 and receive these kind of unsolicited remarks! Having a more youthful look also encourages me to maintain it in other ways, such as living and eating healthily and staying physically active. I am so grateful to have found a skin care regimen that has delivered me ever so gently into my 60s.... because I intend to fight aging kicking and screaming!! There’s no law saying we can’t be “hot” as we get older, right? Thanks for letting me get this off my chest ;-)

As a child, I spent my summers at the pool and the local tennis court. Fair-skinned and not well-informed about sunscreen meant living with “rosy” cheeks and a constantly sunburned nose.

In my 30s, after the removal of a basal cell carcinoma above my lip and the yearly ritual of the dermatologist freezing the multiple actinic keratoses on my face, I realized the extent of my skin damage. My mom, who has now been using Obagi for 32 years, encouraged me to give Obagi a try.

As a self-proclaimed low-maintenance outdoorsy type, I balked at the idea of using products with multiple steps. I didn’t want to mess with peeling skin as my skin got used to the system. Though her skin looked younger than mine, I maintained that sunscreen and drugstore soap would eventually do the trick. They didn’t.

Last year at Christmas, at the age of 41, my mom gave me the gift of Obagi. Really, she gave me the gift of radiant skin. Within a few weeks, a friend stopped in her tracks and asked, “What are you using on your skin?”

The steps only take a minute or two; the peeling phase passed quickly and painlessly. For the first time, I feel confident about my skin. My pores are smaller, my wrinkles are softening, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about using Obagi. I can’t wait to see the transformation that I know will come with continued use. If only I hadn’t been so stubborn for so long!

I first noticed my melasma in 2009. It was on both cheeks, and I tried to cover it with makeup. After a dermatologist appointment, I was getting ready to start my first experience with Obagi. I went through the entire transformation, with beautiful, spot free skin after a few months. I made a huge mistake afterwards though—I never maintained it! In 2012 I realized that my melasma had come back with a vengeance. Not only was it on both cheeks, but on my forehead and my upper lip. I tried to get away without Obagi by covering it with lots of makeup and wearing hats to cover my very visible forehead splotch. I got engaged this year and with the pending engagement photos and eventual nuptials, I needed to make a change. There was NO way that these spots were going to be visible in my pictures. I knew exactly what I needed—the only thing that has ever worked for me. I went to the derm and bought the entire Nu-Derm system again. After ONE month, my spots are SIGNIFICANTLY less visible, to the point where some days I don’t wear makeup. Before this, I would never leave the house without eye makeup, foundation, bronzer, blush, powder, and a shimmer powder to deflect the attention from my spots. A HUGE change. It’s been a little over two months and my skin is looking great. There’s still some work to go, but I’m more hopeful than ever. This second go-round with Obagi has been life changing. Obagi will forever be a part of my skin care routine!

Before I became a Patient Care Coordinator at a cosmetic surgery practice, I really wasn’t aware of what the sun can do to your face. I rarely used spf and used most over the counter skin care products. I frequently used the tanning bed as I was on the Washington Nationals entertainment squad “The Nat Pack” and was in the sun a lot. Once I started working at my practice, I stopped tanning and saw the damage from the sun and tanning bed. Watching patients have to get laser treatments to get rid of sun damage was a wake up call...and those are the lucky patients as opposed to those who had melanoma. I had melasma on my forehead and cheek area as well as sun spots and just dull aging skin! I looked years older than I really was! It is amazing to see the damage that is there once the tan goes away.

I started using the Obagi NuDerm system and after my initial transformation stage you could see a HUGE difference in my skin. Gone were the sun spots and melasma and I had healthier brighter skin. I wished that I knew about this system before and about the dangers of tanning. I was to the misconception that a lot of younger people have that you have to be tan to look like you have good skin when all you really need is good skin care.

I use my Obagi Nu Derm system with the Vitamin C serum and eye cream daily and couldn’t image my skin without it! This skin care line really works! Regardless of where I go employment wise, I have taken a very valuable lesson about skin care and will never use anything but the Obagi Nu Derm system.

I started the Obagi Nu-Derm® line in February 2013. After researching Obagi products and many others, I decided to go with Obagi because of what it did for other people I know. I could not start the products prior to February because I had to receive clearance from my oncologist before usage. Being a cancer patient takes a toll overall on your skin and body as a whole. I was very ashamed about my skin and my confidence level had dropped significantly. I would not get caught dead without makeup on. It was hard accepting and dealing with the fact of cancer but also what it had done to my skin. I had a severe case of hyper-pigmentation, peeling, rough dry spots, and loss of elasticity in my skin and after only 2 1/2 months I saw a tremendous difference. Before Obagi, I was forced to wear a heavy concealer/foundation combination EVERY DAY! Now I am to a point that I can wear either a concealer or foundation if I choose. There are plenty of days now that I can go without makeup at all. The Peels and Obagi Facials every 4-6 weeks along with my daily Obagi regimen were a tremendous help with the transformation from having dark spotty skin to a bright, clear and even tone. It may not be a huge story to some but for me it is grand. To have a product and online support that will help transform your skin from tired, worn, and rundown skin to model runway skin is just unbelievable to me. Thanks to Obagi, I was able to focus on other things in my healing process than what my skin looked like. I am still using all the products every day and my skin is becoming more and more vibrant. Thank you so much Obagi for allowing me to regain my self-confidence and giving me the skin I always knew I could have! Obagi products are the best!!

I cannot express enough words of gratitude for what CLENZIderm Therapeutic Lotion has done for my complexion. About 7 years ago, as my photography business truly began to expand, the cystic acne (which I had been battling since my college years) took a turn for the worse. When I tried to go about my daily life, I felt as if people saw my acne FIRST—instead of the real me. It seemed that whenever an important art fair, gallery exhibit, or public speaking engagement would come up, a massive breakout would occur. Attempting to cover my whole face with makeup naturally made the situation worse. I even clearly recall the day when I asked my husband to deliver artwork on my behalf to a client. I simply couldn’t bear the thought of being seen by my customers with a face peppered with large inflamed bumps. On another occasion, I sadly missed a fun party with my little boy.

The pain of the acne became both physical and psychological, often leaving me reduced to frustrated tears. Having seen numerous dermatologists over the years, I had resigned myself to the idea of having acne issues permanently. The face reflected in the mirror really needed some help.

I wanted to live my life to its fullest potential—not spend hours trying to mask the situation, or deal with the skin care routines required (none of which worked). One day, I saw a local television show for a skin care clinic near my home. Until that point, I hadn’t considered any other options beyond a dermatologist. I went in asking if I would be a good candidate for some sort of laser treatment or dermabrasion to alleviate the acne. I was offered the CLENZIderm kit, and I completely balked at the idea, having tried benzoyl peroxide solutions multiple times without success. It took quite a bit of convincing, but the technician assured me often results could begin in one treatment kit.

Within 2 weeks, my persistent acne subsided. In fact, I almost never have breakouts now! Even though it’s been months since I started using CLENZIderm, it still leaves me in amazement of how well it works. Having a clear face has freed up hours of time away from the bathroom mirror. Some days I can leave the house without foundation on at all—which I couldn’t even fathom prior to using this product! As a busy mother and active freelance business owner, I want to thank you for the gift of time and self-esteem.

I grew up in Florida and always worshiped the sun! I spent my teenage years lifeguarding at the local pool before sunscreen was a household word! As a military wife, I’ve traveled all over and spent three years in Hawaii where the sun is extremely intense. I was introduced to Obagi® Nu-Derm ten years ago by a dermatologist and my skin was transformed. I love the Clear. I have also used the CLENZIderm M.D.™ for hormonal acne with great success. I recently turned 50 and am the mom of two boys ages 11 and 14! I want my face to match the way I feel on the inside and Obagi has accomplished that for me!

I wasn’t looking for a new skincare line when I found Obagi®, but I will NEVER look for another skincare line again! I have battled acne since age 12. Years of dermatologist appointments leading to prescription cleansers, topical treatments and even the latest "mail order" products left my skin feeling overly dry and dull, not to mention the unpleasant medicinal smell of these products. Now at age 33, I have a luxurious acne skincare line that not only treats my acne prone skin, but leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed with quality ingredients and an amazing smell! For 3 years the CLENZIderm M.D. System has transformed my skin. I have welcomed MANY compliments on my complexion and look forward to a lifetime relationship with Obagi!

I’m a 30 something professor who recently completed my graduate studies. I can identify with the many women who have seen everyday stresses and lack of proper skincare take a toll on their complexions. I rarely wore sunscreen because I assumed it wasn’t needed for African-Americans. I somberly resigned to covering my uneven, acne prone, and blotchy skin tone with make-up until a local esthetician recommended Obagi. I experienced a lot of disappointment with department store and prescription skincare products so I was very anxious about making the investment in Obagi. I’m so glad I did! Obagi has given me amazing results by fading spots and refining my skin tone! I’ve truly found a product that is not fazed by differences in skin-tone, amount of past damage, or age range. Obagi unearths youthful beauty for all shades and ages. Obagi truly is for everyone and everybody!

For years I took advantage of good skin and allowed myself too much sun. Eventually learning this was a huge mistake I sought ways to undo years of damage and excess sun exposure. I always suffered dry skin and piled on moisturizers with limited success. Finally my Dr. introduced me to the Obagi® skin care system and it has dramatically improved the texture, condition and appearance of my skin. Now my skin glows and reflects light, it is no longer dry and the sun spots have disappeared! I am so delighted with my results that I tell everyone about Obagi skin care when asked how I keep my skin glowing. I’ve learned it is never too late to begin a good skin regimen. I also learned to avoid the sun and properly protect myself against it. Obagi has made me a believer, a believer with glowing healthy skin!

I fell off the Obagi® bandwagon years ago. Huge mistake, but my life had taken so many turns that skin care was not a priority: Baby at 42; breast cancer (6 years cancer free!), career change and move. My Obagi routine was put in some drawer collecting dust. I have always been told that I have beautiful skin, but I began to notice sun spots, fine lines and my rosy glow wasn’t so rosy anymore. When I told my mother (an Obagi devotee) that my glow was gone, she said “Dah’lin, it is very simple. Use your Obagi.” Rosy is back and beautiful at 48 (49 in 3 mos). Yesterday, while walking my dog, a tourist came up to me and said, and I quote – “You have the most beautiful skin. It is like porcelain” I replied “Dah’lin, it is very simple; use Obagi.”

  I am a 46-year-old woman...and we all know what happens to our skin after 40!  Adding to age, I am a redhead and the sun does not like redheads!!!!  
Since using Obagi, my skin has an even tone and is bright, moist and flawless.  I have not experienced a single breakout, dryness, or sun damage (use the SPF cream every day).
 It is our job to take care of our skin and age gracefully.  I have been able to do this with using Obagi!!!!

My name is Debbie Pakzaban, I'm 45 years old, I'm married, have two daughters, and we live in Houston, TX. I've been using the Obagi® system for more than 8 years. I receive compliments every other day from friends or perfect strangers. No one ever believes that I am 45—they all think I'm in my late 30s. I am not one to worry about my age because my life is so happy and complete, but the compliments are great. I wish I could use it on my entire body. I forgot to mention how great my neck and chest are compared to women my age. My girls claim I'm the prettiest mommy at school. Obagi makes me happy, makes me feel ready to face the world with confidence because I know my skin is the best it can possibly be.

I underwent chemo and radiation for cancer. Since these made me tired and I was working, taking care of my appearance was forced to take a backseat to other demands of life. Upon completion of my cancer treatment, and while regaining my strength, I visited Dr. Beautiful to investigate the Obagi® system, which I started that day. Many people asked my family about me and most of the time, I was right there. Yes, I had changed, had a positive, can-do attitude, my hair came back, I lost 40 pounds, but the thing I heard most was that my skin was beautiful. Obagi gave me back some of what cancer took away. Dead skin from lack of attention was peeled away, leaving a fresh clean face with the smile of a positive, happy, cancer-free woman. Thanks Obagi and Dr. Beautiful as some people still don't recognize me.

Growing up in the 70s I was a sun worshipper. Our family went to the beach every year and I was always outside — never without sunscreen. Living in Louisiana, the humidity and 100 degree days can be brutal. By the time I was 40, the signs of this abuse were beginning to show. I started with the Obagi C Rx system on the advice of my friend and aesthetician. The before and after was amazing! I get asked all the time, "What do you use on your face?" or "What kind of makeup do you use?" I hardly wear any face makeup — no need to. I love my skin and intend to use Obagi® forever! My favorite is the serum, and I love the toner as well. Great product!! The picture attached is one of me and my husband at Mardi Gras!

I’ve always had a history of very oily skin, and I developed really bad melasma and hyperpigmentation about 4 or 5 years ago. I wasn’t pregnant, and I hadn’t done anything that should have changed the pigment in my skin, so I was growing accustomed to the idea that there wasn’t much I could do about it because I believed all the years of sun damage were just taking their toll. I cried many tears over my skin, hid behind dark lighting and makeup, and dealt with many comments about having dirt on my face, etc.

Then my skin care specialist introduced me to the Obagi® Nu-Derm System. After following the proper protocol as recommended, the results were amazing! In just 4 short weeks, 90% of my melasma and hyperpigmentation went away, I stopped getting breakouts, and the few fine lines and age spots I had simply vanished. Now, people actually comment on how great my skin is. That has never happened before! My family and friends cannot believe the transformation. Thanks to Obagi, I’ve gotten my life back. It’s been a hard road, but the Obagi Nu-Derm System has been my saving grace.

How Obagi makes me feel in 3 words: Liberated, free, and confident.

I have combination skin, normal in most areas with some patchy dryness and an oily t-zone. Growing up and living most of my life in Florida, I am constantly exposed to the harsh effects of the sun despite using sunscreen. Last year, just before turning 33, I noticed my skin was looking dull and had a few areas of visible sun damage, such as sun spots and freckles. I was also not pleased with the enlarged pores on my nose.

I’ve been using the Obagi-C Rx System for a little over a year now, and I love my new skin. It looks better than it did when I was 20. And it’s not just me who says that—I have people comment frequently on how luminous my skin is. I recently met a woman at a party who was a pharmaceutical rep in the cosmetic industry. She was amazed at my skin’s appearance and described it as “glowing.” My aesthetician agrees. She says my pores are practically nonexistent, and now she’s started using the Obagi-C Rx System. My biggest compliment was when a woman who works in a doctor’s office told me that she just couldn’t believe I was a stay-at-home mom and that my skin and makeup always looked so good! What an amazing compliment for a frazzled mom to receive! I feel like I’m really making an investment in myself by starting Obagi in my early 30s and preventing further damage. I feel like my skin will look great and be healthy for years to come.

How Obagi makes me feel in 3 words: Youthful, attractive, and healthy.

I used to suffer from dry skin and was starting to notice dark spots on both sides of my face with some freckling. One day a lady at my local health club introduced me to Obagi. I began using the Nu-Derm System, which worked quickly with minimal flaking or redness. The results were terrific. My pigmented lesions used to be the color of light coffee, and within 3 weeks they faded dramatically. I’m now Obagi’s biggest fan. I talk about Obagi to any woman who is nearing the age of 50. I tell them it’s my little secret. I even made a visor and wanted to display "Obagi" on its front. That’s how big a fan I’ve become. I can’t believe how great this stuff works!

How Obagi makes me feel in 3 words: Smart, inspired, and great.

Recently, I started to notice some early signs of aging and sun damage. My skin is also dry and prone to acne…well, at least it used to be.

My favorite Obagi® product is the Nu-Derm System, especially the Clear component. I can’t begin to tell you what it has done for me in such a short time. In the past I have canceled client appointments, outings with friends, fun activities with my children, and even shied away from close-up moments with my husband because of my bad skin. I’ve also had days that I pretended to be sick, just so I had an excuse to hide from the world. Obagi has literally given me my life back. When I first tried Obagi, I was simply hoping to obtain skin that was clear enough to cover my remaining imperfections with makeup. What I have gotten is skin that looks good enough to go out in public without makeup at all. I can go to the pool with my children and actually get in the water! I can also lie nose-to-nose with my husband and not pull away when he touches my face. Not only am I always ready to meet with my clients, I am actually more outgoing, ie, successful, in my career. I owe Obagi a sincere THANK YOU.

How Obagi makes me feel in 3 words: Free, happy, and myself.

I was introduced to Obagi Medical products 12 years ago, when I was in my late 20s. My twin sister worked for a cosmetic surgeon who told me there was an Obagi® product on the market that would help with my melasma. Although I had been diligent about staying out of the sun, many years of being on birth control had started to show brown spots on my face. After using Obagi products for a few months, I signed up for my first Blue Peel®. At the time I was 28 and became hooked! The combination of the products with the Blue Peel completely changed the look and feel of my skin. All my brown spots were gone, and my skin tone had a more flawless appearance.

Now, for the first time in my life I’m getting compliments regarding my skin. I get many comments on the elasticity, tightness, and firmness and people can’t believe I am months away from being 40. I want to share with the world how great these products are and what they’ve done for me.

How Obagi makes me feel in 3 words: Young, beautiful, and confident.

It is with great gratitude that I offer my testimony about how the Obagi Nu-Derm® System changed my life. About 6 years ago I was dealing with a wide range of emotional situations such as single parenting, housing, finances, weight, and new relationships. All of these situations somehow ended up on my face! My face irritated me in class, and it was hard to speak to people, especially men. I simply did not want to live that way. Then I made an appointment with my skin care specialist. It had been a long time since I got into the “take care of myself” mode. And this really just needed to be all about me. All my time and all my resources: I didn’t care. Just fix it!

After my skin care specialist started me on the Nu-Derm System, I saw dramatic changes within a few weeks…and I mean a few. This wasn’t some long, drawn-out, 6-month-to-a-year plan to see real, effective results. Now whenever I meet somebody with skin concerns, I tell them to try Obagi. I believe in it, and I have an innate desire to help educate as many women and men as I possibly can. Obagi has played a powerful part in my life and I want to play a powerful role in the legacy of Obagi. This year, I was confident enough to compete in the Miss Essence Pageant National Competition in Kansas City, MO. I have become a public figure in my community and do not suffer from emotional issues about my skin. I would have never even thought the word “pageantry” if it weren’t for Obagi. Thank you so much!

How Obagi makes me feel in 3 words: Empowered, confident, and healthy.
