Improving my Skin Health

For as long as I can remember I have had various skin complaints. From the fact I get blemishes - even now at this age – through to the pigmentation I have which seems to get worse as time passes, there have always been issues which only now am I trying to rectify....... better late than never though right?!!


So last year when I was having a Hydrafacial at the Health & Aesthetics Clinic near me, I was super excited to be recommended a new brand of products which could improve the health of my skin, work on the pigmentation and blemish issues, and also protect my skin for the future.


Introducing Zo Skin Health by Zein Obagi MD


This offered me exactly what I needed to improve my skin and with clinical trials to support the results I was willing to give the range a try. Trying these products & seeing the results has subsequently led me to continue using them (for nearly a year now) to support my improved skin surface and look which is especially important to me now as I get older!


My skin care regime:


Exfoliating Cleanser


  • Used morning and night to get rid of dirt and surface oils.

  • This is also good to soothe irritated skin because of the exfoliation you get through the jojoba esters. That said your skin isn’t left dry with the exfoliation which is a definite plus for me.


Complexion renewal Pads


  • I also use these morning and night to reinforce what the exfoliating cleanser does in terms of further removal of excess surface oils.

  • The other benefit to these pads is that they exfoliate further to remove dead skin cells and prevent clogged pores. My skin certainly feels smoother and cleaner without being dry after using these pads.


Daily Power Defense


  • This is powerful antioxidant serum which helps to improve lines and wrinkles, not to mention address your future damage.

  • I use this just in the morning and find it is very light and leaves your skin feeling very smooth without being oily.


Sunscreen + Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30


  • Last but not least I put on the combined suncream and primer in the morning which is designed to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections.

  • This is a universal tint with a smooth matte finish which I find gives a great base to then apply make up on top of. This is a non-negotiable product for me now having discovered the effect of years of no suncream on my face. In the summer though I do upgrade the SPF for a 50 non-primer for that extra protection!


Of course, this skin care regime may not be for everyone but with the results I have seen, I won’t be giving up on it anytime soon.
