Why is Vitamin C important?
Vitamin C is a naturally-occurring antioxidant that fights and neutralizes free radicals that age the skin.

Vitamin C can help you maintain vibrant skin and diminish the signs of aging.
What happens if I stop using my Obagi products?
The skin, your largest living organ, is constantly renewing itself. Did you know that skin cells mature and migrate to the surface every 28 days? Dead skin cells remain on the skin’s surface for about another 12 days before sloughing off. If you choose to stop using the Obagi products, you will interrupt the healthy cell renewal process that Obagi is aiding. Over time, the improved cells will revert back to your previous level of health. Within a couple weeks, you will likely begin to see diminishing results.
