• What is psychodermatology?

    Psychodermatology is the study of the connection between psychological factors and skin health. It studies and treats skin conditions through a holistic lens by understanding the psychological effects of skin issues.

    The reason psychodermatology looks at the mind-skin correlation is that the nervous system links both. Emotional and psychological stress can cause skin issues such as acne, psoriasis, hives, eczema, and rosacea, among others. With this treatment approach, patients can better manage the emotional issues of these skin conditions and improve their overall well-being.

  • Are these products habit-forming?

    Psychodermatological products are not considered habit-forming, as they do not contain addictive substances and do not cause physical dependence or withdrawal symptoms.

    Our skincare products are safe to use as directed and do not pose a risk of dependence or addiction. They are non-habit forming and safe for daily usage.

  • Are these products safe for everyday use?

    Our products are designed for everyday use and can be used in tandem with other skincare products that are already on your shelf.

    For the best results with psychodermatological routines, it is imperative also to do your best to address any underlying psychological factors that may be contributing to your skin condition. This may involve using other stress management techniques, such as mindfulness or relaxation exercises.

  • Are these products dermatologically tested?

    Dermatological testing is a process in which a product is evaluated for its potential effects on the skin, including its irritancy, sensitisation, and potential for causing adverse reactions.

    Our psychodermatological products undergo dermatological testing to ensure their safety and efficacy. The testing is conducted under the supervision of a dermatologist, and the results are carefully monitored and analysed.

    If you have concerns about the safety or efficacy of a particular psychodermatological product, feel free to get in touch with any questions.

  • How do I know which regimen works for me?

    Remember that everyone's skin is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. Determining which skincare regimen works best for you may involve a bit of trial and error, as different products and treatments may have varying levels of efficacy for different individuals.

    However, you can take a few steps to help identify which regimen may work best for you. By working with a dermatologist, keeping a skincare journal to note changes, and being patient and consistent with your treatment plan, you can help identify which psychodermatological regimen works best for you.

  • What happens if I stop using a product?

    Stopping the use of our products will have varying effects depending on the product and the individual's skin condition. By and large, you’ll be fine! We just always advise caution.

    As the use of any of our products is paused, cortisol levels and skin conditions revert to pre-use levels. Discontinuing a product used to treat a skin condition having psychological implications, such as acne, eczema, or psoriasis, should be done carefully and gradually.

  • Are the products Vegetarian?

    SEREKO products are made with internationally sourced, naturally derived ingredients. Our skincare products are all vegan, and nutraceuticals are vegetarian.
