ZO Skin HealthThe Refinery Medical Aesthetics

This is exactly what I used to transform my skin…

I had so many people interested in knowing exactly which products I used over the last 4 months, so here it is!

I have tried so many products and spent so much money on products that didn’t really do all that much. When I finally decided I was ready for a legitimate change I did a ton of research in hopes of understanding why certain products work and others don’t. Fast forward 9 months and I’m officially a skincare nerd. Don’t get me started talking about products…I might never stop! But here’s the basics…

I wanted to find a company that offered scientifically backed products with evidence-based results. I also wanted to be as educated as possible on skin histology, aging, and the mechanism of action of each product. #nerdalert

I came across ZO Skin Health (created by Dr. Obagi), and was blown away immediately. They are big on science, evidence, and protocols. My favorite quote that I heard from Dr. Obagi was, “If you want to feel good have a martini. Real skin health takes work”. So I did the work! This is exactly what I used from August to November (and am still using).

  1. Gentle Cleanser - I wash once in the morning and twice at night (to be sure to remove all makeup)
  2. Exfoliating Polish - I use this 3 times/week to remove dead skin cells
  3. Complexion Renewal Pads - I use these to control oil and help loosen dead skin cells
  4. Daily Power Defense - my “multivitamin” for my skin, help restore damaged cells and protect against free radicals
  5. Brightalive - non-hydroquinone lightening/brightening product
  6. Growth Factor Serum - thickens the epidermis (#obsessed!)
  7. Smart Tone Sunscreen - I’ve tried soooo many, and am loving this one right now
  8. Retin-A (tretinoin 0.05%) - the holy grail for all things aging (wrinkles, dark spots, acne)

There you have it! If you haven’t seen the before and after photos I posted they are in my story highlights above.
