Tip: When cleansing your face, always wash your hands first. Be sure you are cleansing twice in a row. The first cleanse will remove dirt and/or makeup, while the second cleanse will be a more thorough deep-pore cleaning.

Tip: To lessen the reaction from tretinoin, and lighten dark spots or sun damage, mix a pea-sized amount of Tretinoin with a pea-sized drop of Obagi NuDerm Blender together and then apply onto skin.
BHA is recommended for blemish-prone, combination and oily skin types. The most effective BHAs should fall between 1-2% concentration with a pH balance of 3-4. Salicylic Acid is the most commonly used BHA. Salicylic Acid is oil soluble, which enables deeper pore penetration, further assisting with clearing skin congestion.
C) Mechanical Scrub
Tip:It's best to avoid abrasive scrubs that have irregular edges containing walnut husks or apricot seeks. These types of scrubs may cause micro-tears in the skin, potentially inviting harmful bacteria which may lead to infection, irritation or breakouts.

-Oily skin; perhaps a good serum and sunscreen will do the trick in providing hydration, and protection from the elements of cold weather. However, there are great options for light-weight moisturizers, if extra hydration is needed.
-Combination skin; application of moisturizer on your dry patches may suffice or you may opt for all over coverage.
-Dry skin; typically is the skin type which suffers the most during cold, dry weather fluctuations. Therefore, if you fall into the dry skin category, an upgraded moisturizer may be a good option.
