Obagi's Professional-C Serum

Ten years ago, I would have said no to facial treatments. I would have saved my precious bucks for a hot dress, an elegant bag or a pair of charming earrings. But some things change with time. I don’t know when it started. I just remember waking up one day and seeing a noticeably older reflection of myself in the mirror.

Did I grow the eye bags overnight? I didn’t think so. Were the lines running on my forehead just pillow marks? Not possible. I don’t sleep face down, ever! Was the tired skin just a product of the cold rainy weather?  Could be. But this was the first time I ever noticed these things.

At 32, I never thought I would be worried about aging. I always thought my youth would last ten more years before it expires. Clearly, I was wrong. Obviously, I was ignorant. Apparently, something must be done before it’s too late.

So, I googled about skin aging and came across the term “photo-aging”. It’s the damage done to the skin from prolonged exposure to UV radiation. The first signs of photo-aging appear in the mid-20’s, way earlier than we ever realized. That's why it’s vital for us to start protecting our skin as early as we can. After all, if there’s a better investment, more important than a beautiful wardrobe or a wonderful bling set, that would be our precious face.

The bad news is we can never stop aging. It’s simply the way nature works. The good news? Nature tilted the scales in our favor and gave us Vitamin C, its most powerful antioxidant. But the intake of Vitamin C supplements is not enough to give us the radiant glow of a healthy skin. What we need is L-Ascorbic Acid, the only form of Vitamin C that can be effectively absorbed by the skin.

House of Obagi's Professional-C Serum 15%

House of Obagi’s Professional-C Serum is stabilized ascorbic acid in a bottle. This skin care innovation offers maximum antioxidant protection you won’t find in other Vitamin C products. It’s clinically tested to be noncomedogenic with minimal side effects. It’s available in four concentrations to address all skin types:

20% Serum - has the highest concentration of L-Ascorbic Acid.
15% Serum – for all skin types.
10% Serum – for dry, sensitive or reactive skin
5% Serum – protection for the sensitive eye area

I had been using the 15% Serum for some time now and it really works. Before, the skin on my face was a bit rough and even had dry patches in certain spots. After just 3 days of using Obagi's Professional-C Serum, I noticed a big change. My skin became properly hydrated and the dryness evidently disappeared. My pores shrunk as well, which restored the youthful glow on my face. It’s like the tired skin of yesterday never really happened, sort of like a bad dream.:)

Who says 30 is old?:)

I now use Obagi’s Professional-C Serum  every single morning. I can even wear it under make-up. It comes with a bent tip glass dropper which makes it easy to apply. A few drops to your face, neck and chest every morning is all you need to give you the protection your skin requires.

Php 4800 at House of Obagi.

So when people ask me what I carry in my handbag for self defense, I always show them my pepper spray House of Obagi's Professional-C Serum. What else do I need? Thanks to House of Obagi, I can now face the day without worries. I’m proud to be in my 30’s and counting.:)
