Traditional Obagi toners were made of alcohol and were needed to remove the residue from greasy products. Obagi Toners today are pH balancing and represent a new dimension in skin care products. They can be used any time you want your skin to feel fresh and rejuvenated. But some people find themselves asking the question of whether or not toners are really necessary. Well the answer is yes, they are an essential part of any skin care regimen. Toners can restore the skin's natural pH and enhance the action of the cleansers. Some toners however dry the skin excessively and this can be bad, especially if your skin is dry. So you need to find a toner that is right for you, but which one is right for you? Choosing skin care products can be a difficult decision and may even leave your head spinning. So which toner will keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful? The Obagi Toner Nu Derm is a great toner that does not dry the skin excessively. It is applied after cleaning the skin, restores the skin's natural pH, enhances the action of the cleansers, and prepares the skin for the Correct and Stimulate Steps of the Obagi Nu-Derm system. The Obagi formulation is designed to tighten the skin and pores.

Obagi skin care products promote skin restoration at the cellular level, unlike traditional skin care products that only treat problems on the surface of your skin. Skin care is important and that is why the Obagi Toner is formulated with alum (a natural astringent). The Toner adjusts the skin's pH for optimal penetration of the System's treatment applications.

Under the guidance of your physician, the Obagi system of products help correct surface discoloration, acne, blemishes, melasma, sun damage and stimulate cell renewal to bring back the glow and softness of healthy, younger-looking skin. Skin Health Restoration is revolutionary, it does not just deal with the superficial symptoms of aging skin, it actually reaches deep below the surface, right down to the cellular level to stimulate and actually promote your skin's restoration. By stimulating skin cell renewal, improving circulation and rebuilding collagen, the Obagi system of products breathes new life into unhealthy skin. You will see a difference in as little as six weeks. With the Obagi system of products, your healthy skin will be smooth, clear, firm, resilient, naturally moist, and simple beautiful.

The Obagi Nu-Derm System is a powerful anti-aging program consisting of a set of products, including the Obagi Toner, that when used together will help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase smoothness, reduce pore size, improve elasticity, generate a balanced, even skin tone, normalize oil production, correct blemishes, reduce age spots and other hyperpigmentation, increase the skin's own ability to hold moisture, and increase the skin's tolerance to external factors.

Should you use the Obagi NuDerm Toner along with the Obagi Nu-Derm System before/after a cosmetic procedure?
