Can I add Obagi Vitamin C serum to my new derm routine?

Doctor Answers 3


Yes ~ Vitamin C is an excellent complement to the Nu Derm system, initially you may experience a little tingling with the product but that should subside quickly. Vitamin C is a close second to Retinol as far as anti-aging benefits.

Obagi Vitamin C Serum

Thank you for your question.  The Obagi Vitamin C Serum works well with the Nuderm system.  After cleansing and toning with the Nuderm products, apply 3 to 5 drops of the Obagi Vitamin C Serum in the AM to the face and neck.  Let the product absorb for about 3 minutes before continuing with the Clear (step 3) product.  The Obagi Vitamin C Serum is a great antioxidant but will also give some hydration to the skin while going through the Nuderm program.  Good Luck!
