Confused about the right skincare for you, or aren’t sure what you should be looking for? Here’s our skin clinic guide to what your skin needs.
Acne-prone and congested skin
Acne-prone and congested skin is mostly thought of as being a problem for teenagers, but many adults experience acne. High-street products contain a lot of alcohol designed to dry out the excess oil, though this not only dries out your skin but can also kickstart the over-production of oil in the first place.
One of the best skin care systems for treating acne and congested skin is Obagi Clenziderm. Acne can come in two forms – excessively oily, and excessively dry – with each presenting their own needs for treatment. Clenziderm, therefore, comes in two different forms: oily-to-normal skin and normal-to-dry skin. Using 5% benzoyl peroxide (BPO) in combination with salicylic acid, it is able to penetrate the follicles and pores where acne begins to treat it at its root.
It works to reduce oil production, purge your pores, and tackle acne-causing bacteria over a long period of time to truly and finally treat acne. You could see results in as little as 2 weeks, and continued use of the Obagi skin care can also help to prevent future breakouts, creating healthy skin to be enjoyed for the longterm.

Hyperpigmentation and the typical signs of ageing
We see a lot of more mature clients coming to us and complaining of their pigmented skin because they feel it prematurely ages them. Hyperpigmentation is most commonly caused by sun damage that has built up over the years, but it can also be a result of hormones, skin healing after damage such as acne scars, and other complex skin conditions.
Many people choose to treat hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone because the results give you a glowing, even, fresh skin surface whilst working to improve skin quality. We find that the Obagi-C Rx skincare system is one of the best for treating hyperpigmentation and the visible signs of ageing.
Not available on the high-street, this dynamic skincare system uses professional strength vitamin C, 10%, and 4% prescription strength hydroquinone, so you won’t find anything like it elsewhere. The hydroquinone reduces hyperpigmentation and freshens the skin tone whilst the vitamin C works to address fine lines and skin cell damage from the environment. This is an extremely popular skincare range, and as you can see it is vastly different from the Clenziderm.
