After being diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing four surgeries, Lynda Bartemeyer wanted to reward herself. Her dermatologist recommended the Obagi Nu-Derm® System, which transformed Lynda into a vocal Obagi advocate—turning her girlfriends and family members on to the Obagi secret—ever since! This is her Obagi Story.
Lynda lives with her husband in Naperville, Illinois, and owns her own business—Interiors by Lynda Ltd.
My Obagi Story:
I’m 61 years old and am frequently mistaken as being my grandchildren’s mother. I owe it to Obagi.
Almost 2 years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I kept telling myself, if I can get through this, I am going to treat myself to something special. As I was discussing my double mastectomy/reconstruction with my plastic surgeon, I mentioned to him my next surgery will be a facelift...something special! Tactfully, he recommended I try the Obagi Nu-Derm System* as a first step. Need I say more?
I faithfully use the product morning and night. I get complimented on my complexion whether I’m out to lunch with my grandchildren, golfing with my girlfriends, or on date night with my husband (I feel like the younger woman!).
I am not exaggerating when I say that at least once a week a stranger will approach me and compliment me on my skin and ask me for my skin care secret. It’s no secret—it’s Obagi! I am a new woman—healthy and feeling more beautiful than ever. I have countless girlfriends and family members who also have begun the Obagi regimen. We have a very special bond—all glowing—all Obagi.

Important Safety Information for Obagi Nu-Derm Clear and Blender®
(contains 4% hydroquinone)
People with prior history of sensitivity or allergic reaction to this product or any of its ingredients should not use it. The safety of topical hydroquinone use during pregnancy or in children (12 years and under) has not been established.
Avoid contact with eyes, nose, mouth, or lips. In case of accidental contact, patient should rinse eyes, nose, mouth, or lips with water and contact physician.
Sunscreen use is an essential aspect of hydroquinone therapy because even minimal sunlight exposure sustains melanocytic activity.
Contains sodium metabisulfite, a sulfite that may cause allergic-type reactions including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible people. The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the general population is unknown and probably low. Sulfite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic than in nonasthmatic people.
PRECAUTIONS (ALSO SEE WARNINGS):
Treatment should be limited to relatively small areas of the body at one time since some patients experience a transient skin reddening and a mild burning sensation, which does not preclude treatment.
Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with topical hydroquinone. It is also not known whether hydroquinone can cause fetal harm when used topically on a pregnant woman or affect reproductive capacity. It is not known to what degree, if any, topical hydroquinone is absorbed systemically. Topical hydroquinone should be used on pregnant women only when clearly indicated.
Nursing Mothers: It is not known whether topical hydroquinone is absorbed or excreted in human milk. Caution is advised when topical hydroquinone is used by a nursing mother.
