ZO Skin Health – Getting Skin Ready

ZO Skin Health was created by world-renowned dermatologist, Dr Zein Obagi. You may well have heard of the original and highly respected Obagi skincare range, but ZO Skin Health is of the next generation and takes this to a new level.

Your journey to healthy, strong skin begins with the basic Daily Skincare Regime, to effectively get skin ready for the next steps in achieving radiant and resilient skin.

When your skin is in great shape you will naturally look more youthful, fresher and exude that subtle glow that we had when we were younger. As we age, skin cell, collagen and elastin production, slows down gradually giving rise to lines, wrinkles and the recognisable signs of ageing.


Healthy skin is plump, clear and blemish-free, and has a natural in-built elasticity that is more resistant to fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to higher levels of elastin and collagen. We can start to rebuild skin health using the advanced skincare products presented in the ZO Skin Health and Alumier ranges chosen by the Norup Clinic for their effectiveness and visible results.


The ZO Skin Health collection of products is ‘medical grade’ and contains high quantities of active ingredients. For this reason, a one-to-one consultation with Dr Norup is required to evaluate your skin, identify any issues such as acne, rosacea, dryness or oiliness and then you will receive a skincare prescription that starts with Getting Skin Ready. This consultation can be online or in-clinic.
