Studies show that skin conditions are frequently the reason why people consult health professionals in the UK. A survey shows that up to 54% of the population is estimated to be experiencing skin problems within a 12-month period. Among the most common skin problems in the UK are acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
Skin conditions belong to the list of most common human diseases worldwide, affecting almost a third of the global population. The quality of life of patients with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema is significantly impaired, affecting both physical and mental health.
Treatment for chronic skin disorders like psoriasis and eczema is costly, but 69% of people in the UK rely on self-care by buying over-the-counter skin treatments. Only 14% seek professional help with skin problems, approaching doctors or nurses in the community for further advice.
Here are the most common skin conditions that people in the UK suffer from. Stats and studies on how patients seek help with their skin problems are also included to show the importance of getting professional help for the best skin treatment available.
Acne is a common skin condition among UK citizens but is often disregarded as a normal part of adolescence. However, the skin condition is found to persist into the later years, up to the 40s in most people.
While the purchase of over-the-counter topical solutions is the most popular option for those with acne, many still seek professionals to help with their skin problems. Female patients are the ones who seek dermatologists the most for acne skin treatments.
Around 30% of psoriasis patients need systemic treatments and have been attending professional help with their skin problems for more than a decade already.
Long-term skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema also affect the physical and psychological health of patients. Those who have been dealing with chronic psoriasis were often found to have increased levels of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Depression and anxiety were also common among UK patients suffering from skin problems.
Skin diseases represent 34% of the illnesses children in the UK suffer from during their childhood, of which 20% are eczema. In adults, hand eczema is one of the leading reasons for claiming disablement benefits.
Around 97% of people with eczema get help with their skin problems from general practitioners. Only 16% to 30% are considered moderate or severe cases that require specialist care for treatment.
Emollients or moisturisers help with dry skin problems and reduce the itchiness that patients feel. Most patients do not seek professional help with this skin problem and rely on self-care unless they do not see any improvement with their condition.
Itchiness of the scalp is a form of seborrhoeic dermatitis and many people do not know they have it. Only around 4% of the population have this and is more commonly seen in men. Doctors recommend applying mild steroids or anti-inflammatory creams for several weeks until the skin condition improves.
Several off-the-shelf products promise to help with skin problems. However, each one of them has different potencies and effects on the body. Some might even cause adverse reactions because of the substances used to manufacture them.
Among the skincare brands in the market, Medovie is a cut above the rest because of its mission to help with skin problems using natural ingredients. It is mild and safe for use even for those with sensitive skin.
There are countless skincare brands in the market aside from Medovie. Some of them might have more affordable prices, more enticing fragrances, and better packaging compared to our products. However, when it comes to dealing with skin conditions, we’re confident that we offer one of the best solutions for skin problems today.
Here are the reasons that will give you a better picture of why you should choose Medovie over other skincare companies:
Medovie believes that transparency in how the products for treating skin problems are made contributes to strengthening business-to-consumer relationships. We do this by detailing the procedures we follow in creating every skincare product we sell.
If you have questions about the brand, the team behind the company, or any of our products, don’t hesitate to contact us.
There are basically two types of skincare products available in the market: synthetic and natural.
Synthetic products are made from chemicals artificially created in laboratories. On the other hand, natural skincare products are made from substances that usually grow in the environment.
Generally, synthetic skincare products are harmless. However, chemicals such as parabens and phthalates can cause health risks when used for prolonged periods.
Consumers in Europe are gearing more toward natural skincare products as they see these as safer to use and won’t cause harm to the environment. This is the reason why a growing number of skincare companies are switching from using synthetic chemicals to natural substances in their products.
Medovie understands the safety and security associated with using natural skin care products. Our products contain 96% natural ingredients to ensure their quality and effectiveness remain the same for a long time.
The ingredients used in Medovie products are sourced from trusted and established suppliers. To produce an effective treatment for skin disorders, it’s vital to start with ingredients that are grown without using potentially harmful substances.
We have a patented method for extracting ingredients from our botanicals. This process enables us to maintain consistency in the potency of our capsules, creams, lotions, and shampoos.
Every ingredient we use goes through a series of quality checks to ensure we deliver only the best skin solutions to our customers.
From the selection of raw materials, we already test each flower, plant, and root for any factors that might affect their potency. Another test is conducted before the extraction of key substances from these ingredients to ensure there’s no bad stuff that got mixed in. Finally, we conduct functional testing to guarantee the safety and purity of the substances we’ve extracted.
Medovie also conducts tests to detect the presence of dangerous heavy metals in our skincare products. Products that might have been contaminated never reach our warehouses for distribution.
Medovie is one of the most trusted brands that offer free skincare recommendations. We help with skin problems by providing advice from skincare experts and offering products made from naturally sourced ingredients.
Other skincare brands give little care to what happens with their customers, so long as the products have been purchased and there are no reported issues whatsoever for using them.
We stay connected with our customers to ensure our products help soothe skin problems the Medovie way. In case you need help in using our products, don’t hesitate to seek support from Medovie’s expert team.
We’ll also be launching soon a tool that will make it easier for you to track your skin’s health. The MyMedovie tool will monitor your progress when applying our products, give you daily reminders, and keep in touch with our team.
We’ve received many success stories from our customers that prove the efficiency of Medovie skincare products. You can read some of them on our website to see how Medovie changed their lives by alleviating the skin conditions they’ve had for a long time.
But we’re not stopping with what we’ve achieved. We want to continuously improve our skincare products to serve more people dealing with skin disorders. To do that, we need your advice on how our skincare products are doing.
We always love to hear about your experience in using our product. You can contact our team through the Medovie website or send us an email at [email protected]. You can also send us a message on our Facebook or Instagram page, whichever is more convenient.
