Do the skincare products you use really make a difference?

At 46 years of age my skin showed the signs of my neglectful youth.  When I was young, like many, I didn’t think, or care much, about the affects of environment on my skin.  Much of my youth I spent worshiping the sun.  From the younger days laying out at every chance to later years when I lived in Arizona and Hawaii and spent most of the daylight hours outdoors.  Hiking, sitting at the pool, days at the beach, daily runs all without sun screen and now it shows.  Take these factors and add on the fact I smoked for many years the damage is visible.  I have the “smokers pucker” wrinkles around my lips, crow’s feet and just a general dullness to my skin.
Now I have confessed my skin care sins and you wonder why. When I started doing the marketing for Serenity Med Spa I didn’t give much thought to what it would do for me.  When I met with our registered nurse/skin care specialist and expressed my concerns with wrinkles and asked for a solution I expected the response to be injections or a procedure of some sort.  In my mind that is the only thing I could think of that would really work.  So imagine my surprise when she suggested anObagi skin care regiment.  The Obagi-C RX System to be exact.  Honestly I was quite the skeptic.  After all, how is a different type of facial cleanser, moisturizer and a serum going to reduce all those years of damage.
When I finished my first week I was very pleasantly surprised and shocked.  I could actually see a bit of a difference.  Now, I am not saying the wrinkles are gone nor do I look 21.  What I am saying is that quite honestly after one week of using the Obagi-C Rx System I can see and feel an improvement to my complexion.  It takes me about an additional 30 seconds over what my previous skin care routine was.  Prior to the Obagi-C Rx System I would use an over the counter foaming cleanser (higher end) followed by a (what I thought was higher end) dry skin lotion facial moisturizer both morning and night.  With the Obagi-C Rx System there is one additional step in the morning, which is the Obagi C Serum.  Just a few drops massaged on your face and that is the additional 30 seconds.
I will be posting updates for you to read about and we will see if the wrinkles start to diminish and if friends start to notice.  If you have questions about my routine please feel free to ask.  Though I am still a bit skeptical, I am starting to believe.  Let’s see what the next few weeks bring together!
