Well, hi, everyone. It's Tonia Ryan with Inance Skincare, and I'm so excited. I'm going to teach you today how do you use your   Retinol and your Obagi Blend Fx together because that's one of the biggest questions I get. I'm going to let you know, coming up.

So we're going to start out today by talking about the Obagi Nu-Derm Blend Fx. I'm sure all of you know, this is one of the most important products in the Obagi Nu-Derm system. It's step number five. Now this Blend FX is not the regular blender. That is the 4% hydroquinone. That's a prescription product. This is an over the counter product. You do not need that rx product anymore. That product is obsolete. That is back in the day. Everyone was using the 4% hydroquinone. You do not need that product anymore, unless you have an intense amount of melasma and hyperpigmentation and you should consult a Dr if so.

If it's completely covering your entire face and it's so bad, then yes, you should go to your doctor to try to get that product. If you just have some hyperpigmentation, a little bit of photo aging and dark spots, then Obagi Blend FX is for you. It has 7% arbutin, which works just as good if you're using a retinol with it in conjunction, I'm going to show you how to do that. And, or you can use our Inance 2% hydroquinone, which is over the counter.

If you're using all three of these products together, you definitely don't need the RX product at all. And why should you use it if you don't need it? You don't need something so intense because again, if it's something prescription, that means maybe it's doing more to your body than what you actually need.

So let's talk about what the Blend FX does. Again, like I said, it has a 7% arbutin, which is amazing. That's a wonderful ingredient that will help remove dark spots and wrinkles, and helps improve the skin's elasticity by building new, healthy, collagen. This is a very gentle formula and will not cause any irritation to your skin, which is great, which is the complete opposite of what can happen with the Obagi Rx blender.

With regular daily use, your skin to look so much brighter and it will gradually improve the discolorations and blotches on your skin. What the arbutin does is it slows down an enzyme that helps produce dark spots. So what's great about that it's going to help slow any future dark spots that could be coming your way, which none of us want, but it's also going to help decrease the look of the dark spots. So again, when this cream is mixed with retinol, it helps boost the reparative process of dead skin cells. So again, it has a 7% arbutin.

So let's talk about how you use these two in conjunction together. After you've decided which retinol that you need, all you do is you take a pea size amount of the Blend Fx and you take even a smaller amount than a piece size of the retinol and you mix the two of them together. You do this at night because you always want to use your retinols at night when you're sleeping and your skin's getting restored, rejuvenated. The Blend Fx works perfect with that at night. You put it on your face and then you're good to go for the next morning when you start your new skincare regimen.

Now, if you've never used a retinol before, or you're wondering if you should, I know there's a lot of different information out there. There is so much information on YouTube. It's like information overload, and sometimes you don't know what product you should choose. Well, I'm here to help you. Whatever products that you want to ask me about, you can go ahead and comment below. You can go to my website, which is Inance Skin or Skincare Special, which you can see here. On the website there's a little chat box. You can message me and we can set up a time so I can help you make sure you're choosing the right skincare product.

Because I know how overwhelming it can be when you don't know which products you should choose. There's just thousands and thousands. Oh, sorry. Millions and millions and millions of products out there. So how do you know which product is the best for your skin? That's why I decided to start doing YouTube because I felt there is just so much information out there, but it's not really detailed towards a specific person or their skin type.

It's very difficult to talk to the masses, right? And tell them what product works great for you. But that doesn't mean it's going to work great for them. That's why I only carry medical skincare products, because they are the best. And this way I can help you make an educated decision, what you want to choose. Because we're a team together here. I'm here to help mentor you for skincare. And I want to make sure you have the best skin you can absolutely get. I want to save you time and money. So you're not buying products that you don't need or looking all over the web and looking all over the place to figure out what type of information you need. Because a lot of these YouTubers out there are geared towards people in their twenties. Well, I can help out people in their twenties because it's not that difficult to figure out which skincare products you need.

You want to start out in your twenties so that you can keep your skin beautiful and vibrant. I've been using medical grade skincare since I was in my twenties. But if you're in your forties and you're watching a YouTuber that's talking to 20 year olds, they can't help you. You need to make sure that you have someone that knows about every age, over 40, over 50, over 60, and then some.

So again, if you have any questions about which skin care products you would like to try, please let me know. I have full lines of the best medical products out there. And again, guys, I'm not a sponsored YouTuber. None of my videos are sponsored. I'm not being paid by some company to talk about any of this. I own my own skincare brand and my own e-commerce skincare company. So I take my hard earned money and I buy the best products in the world that I can help you choose.

So think about that for a minute. Tonia must really like these products. She must really know that these products are good products. Because why would I spend thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars a month buying new stock and new inventory if it's not good products. Because it's not going to work for you and it's certainly not going to work for me if no one wants to buy the best products out there. So that's why I'm here to help you. And I know, again, how hard it is with all the information out there. So that's why I'm condensing it and making it more direct and personalized per viewer.

So I hope you enjoyed this video. Thank you so much for coming and hang out with me for a little bit. I love it. I love building this community and making all these new friends because you know what, when you're in the e-commerce industry like I am, I'm in the beauty industry, but I also design all my own websites, I do everything that has to do with e-commerce. The advertising, the marketing, everything. So a lot of times you don't get to connect with the customer enough. If you're someone who like nowadays, no one will talk to you on the phone or they're too busy or just text me ... Which texting is great, of course, because we're starting a whole amazing text community.

So, again, just thanks for watching. I just want to say thank you so much. It's so nice having you on my channel. Have a wonderful day. Make sure you hit that bell again if you didn't get a chance to do it so you can subscribe to me. We can hang out together all the time. Super cool. Have a wonderful day. Bye friends.
