Dermatica is a brilliant personalised prescription service that can help address skin concerns without the price of going private or the insane wait of getting an appointment on the NHS. I love it because it is made uniquely for you and your skin, is capable of addressing multiple concerns with one product and as your skin changes, so does your prescription.
Dermatica have an excellent in-house dermatology team who you can contact at any time to help adapt your prescription to your skin.
Dermatica can be used to address any of your skin concerns from anti-ageing concerns, to boost skin glow, reduce breakouts and acne, hyperpigmentation, melasma and (notably) rosacea.
Rosacea is a skin concern that affects an estimated 1 in 10 people and one that I get constant questions about! April marks Rosacea Awareness Month and both the prescription service and Dermatica’s 20% Azelaic Acid Cream can be used to help treat Rosacea. Symptoms can be as mild as flushing and as intense as swelling, burning and stinging. If you are unsure if you have rosacea, Dermatica can assist with recommending a prescription which can help to treat your skin concerns.
Your custom Dermatica product can be used in your routine, as your serum or treatment step. I typically use it in my evening routine. I cleanse, apply Dermatica, wait a while (make a brew) and then apply my moisturiser.
If you are new to prescription strength skincare, you can ‘buffer’ the product by applying a layer of moisturiser both before and after you apply your prescription. You can also use it 3-4 times a week and then build it up from there. Dermatica also offer a Side Effects Consultation for anyone who finds starting the prescription challenging and they can adapt your prescription based on how your skin adapts.
You can use code C-HIRONS to get your first month of Dermatica for £2.90 and 15% off your next two months. On your second month you will also receive a free trial of the Azelaic Acid 20% cream.
Please note the free trial of Azelaic Acid is not available in the US.
