Why does skin become dull?

Skin can appear tired or grey due to a buildup of dead skin cells, pollution, stress, dehydration or lack of sleep. Prescription ingredients help accelerate your skin’s natural cell turnover - so you can trade dullness for a more radiant complexion.

Evidence-backed active ingredients

Our dermatology experts select active ingredients backed by evidence to tighten, brighten and clear your skin - and fight the signs of aging too.

“I love the personalized service & for a great price. I have been really impressed with the product - my skin looks great. It was easy to do the consultation & the retinol cream has been a pleasure to use. It started on a lower % of 0.25 & is now 0.5. Fantastic.”

“Amazing service. Brilliant product that I used to pay hundreds of pounds for and amazing results. Tailored to my own skin problems and I can’t recommend Dermatica enough. Easy to cancel if you’re not happy but I guarantee you will be so pleased with the results you will carry on just as I have 😊😊”

“Having tried many products before to help with my skin I can honestly say that I have been very impressed with Dermatica...my skin is probably the best it has been in years. Getting the formula was simple enough and the results speak for themselves. Worth every penny.”

“My skin has been the best it's ever been since I was a teenager my pigmentation has significantly cleared and acne has been kept at bay. I will never use anything other than dermatica I am so relieved I found this brand and have recommended to others. I receive compliments on how good my skin looks it's taken years off me.”

“I am such a fan of Dermatica and their service. Very easy to manage your subscription but as someone with incredibly problematic skin (who last week got complimented by a stranger on it!) I wouldn't be without it. I truly believe prescription skincare offers so much more than all the creams and lotions you can buy OTC.”

“I’ve been using Tretinoin for almost three months now, and I’m loving it. Great customer service, great results and I’m now up to my maximum dose. I’m definitely seeing some peeling, but nothing that wasn’t explained in the literature you receive with the product. It’s saved me an absolute fortune on skincare, as I used to buy every new product on the market that promised the earth and delivered nothing.”

“The initial process of having the assessment and getting my personalized formula was so fast. Shortly after I received my products which I love so much and it has only been 2 weeks. My major skin concern was uneven dull skin tone, enlarged pores and fine lines. My skin is so glowing like it has never been before! It just looks so healthy and feels so soft. I had a few acne marks which are now faded.”

“Dermatica has completely revolutionised my skin care. I am now 63 but my skin has never looked so good or been so healthy. My monthly delivery has become a part of my life now and I will continue for as long as I am able. The service is also second to none. Any questions I've submitted have always been answered promptly and without fuss. I would highly recommend Dermatica to anyone who cares about looking their best for as long as possible.”

“I have PCOS and have struggled with acne for over 10 years, and have tried what feels like every acne medication available. My skin has never been better than while using my personalized Dermatica treatment, and I'm so happy! The subscription service is also very convenient, so I never have to worry about running out or having to go to the pharmacy for it.”

“Love Dermatica. My skin is bright and the large pores and blackheads on my nose have gone. I've been using it for 6 months with Dermatica controlling the strength of the creams supplied to suit. I must say it has saved me a fortune on buying stuff to try and it not working and I can now use basic cleanser and moisturiser.”

Skin glow FAQs

Why is the concentration of tretinoin prescribed much lower than retinol?
Retinols in over-the-counter formulations are often sold at higher percentages (e.g. 1%) but they are inactive vitamin A derivatives and need to be converted in the skin first. On the other hand, retinoids are already activated, so they’re stronger, more potent, and so the lower strength ensures your skin has time to adjust to them.

To minimize side effects and make sure your skin has time to adapt, we start all of our Dermatica formulas at a low dose, then increase the strength gradually. If you’ve used tretinoin in the past, please let us know in your consultation and we’ll be able to match the strength you used before as best as we can.
What else can I do to help my skin look its best?
In addition to our skin glow treatment, there are other things you can do to help improve your skin.

A simple skincare routine with a gentle face wash, moisturizer and sunscreen is a great place to start. Another technique is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, by eating a balanced diet and staying active.

Try to eat foods that are low in saturated fat and sugar, and add plenty of Omega-3, protein and complex carbohydrates to your meals. Lowering your intake of alcohol can also help, as drinking it can lead to your skin becoming dehydrated.

We also recommend avoiding smoking, as it releases free radicals and causes oxygen depletion, which accelerates skin aging and can make your skin appear more dull.

Finally, we strongly advise applying SPF regularly and taking precaution to avoid direct sunlight, as this can also lead to dehydration and skin aging.
