Skin Brightening Goes to a New Level with Obagi Hydroquinone 4%
Obagi Nu-Derm Clear Rx is an imperative step in the corrective stage of your skin-renewal process. This topical treatment has 4% hydroquinone which helps in the correction of hyperpigmentation and works to even out your complexion. Hyperpigmentation typically darkens the skin on your face and hands due to increased melanin production. Hyperpigmentation can stem from over-exposure to the sun, acne scars, chemical exposure, and cigarette smoking.
