Goals: Reduction of sun damage (hyper-pigmentation) and improve overall skin tone
I have been on a Obagi routine for over 2 years introducing SRCP's approx 6 months ago.
My Obagi routine is: Every morning and evening Foaming Cleanser and Toner, on Mon./Thurs Obagi Clear in a.m., Clear and Exfoderm in p.m.; on Wed./Sat. Blender and Tretinoin in p.m.
My SRCP routine is: Sun/Tues/Fri a.m.- after cleansing w/Obagi cleanser and Toner, apply 9-10 undiluted drops CP Serum to entire face (incl. eyelids), let dry, apply CP Premier to eyelids, then Exfol to entire face (eyelids too), after 30 min. apply emu oil to eyelids (not face); p.m.--same as above except add emu oil to face.
In Dec I wrote, "I have had no bad reactions, but also have not seen any changes to my complexion or reduction of sun damage, though I do notice skin sloughing off more than when I used Obagi alone." However, after reviewing my progress pictures they do show possitive changes over the last 6 months. With the hyper-pigmentation not improving as much as I would like I will begin a new routine as follows:
Eliminating Obagi Clear.
Moving up from CP Serum to Super CP Serum. Adding Red Tea Serum to AM routine. Using Night Eyes Premier every AM/PM (not just on Obagi off days), after a couple of weeks introducing regular Night Eyes two or three days/week and increasing until Premier is phased out and only using regular Night Eyes. I am also going to try a 10 day or weekly application of 40% Lactic acid.
