Yes, you can certainly use the Obagi skin system for dark skin. Just make sure that you do not use anything that has skin lighteners. It will also help with blotchy hyperpigmentation (if you have any)

It is a physician prescribed and dispensed product, therefore you should consult your dermatologist prior to starting. In certain patients, you may be able to not use the moisturizer, but others may require it or their skin will dry out.
