The skin is the largest body organ requiring constant care, both internal and external.
The skin keeps us from invading bacteria, various chemical substances and water. Many people do not pay attention to their skin until wrinkles, rashes, excessive dryness, or oiliness occur.
At SkinPractice we take the skin conditions and their treatment seriously, and the information on the site is based on clinical trials and medical studies by government and university researchers.

To provide optimal care for our skin, we need to be correctly informed about how to maintain it best and to explore everything related to its health status.
That is why we have included information not only about the most common skin conditions but also about the best over the counter medications and home remedies you can use to treat them.
Our team at SkinPractice spends hundreds of hours researching clinical trials, patient reviews and doctor recommendations so we can give you the best options on how to treat and cure your skin condition.
Skin disease represents between 15 and 20% of a GP’s workload, that inflammatory skin diseases such as acne, eczema and psoriasis make up some 70% of all skin disease seen in primary care, and that the incidence of some skin diseases – notably eczema and skin cancer – is increasing markedly.
The evidence showing that many skin diseases, including acne, eczema and psoriasis can result in disability levels equivalent to or greater than those experienced by patients with diseases such as angina, asthma, arthritis, back pain, bronchitis, diabetes and hypertension.
The Skin Care Campaign at SkinPractice
- works for the improvement of health care for people with skin disease;
- educates and informs the public and others about skin diseases and their treatment;
- supports other organisations in order to pursue these objectives.
We also advise you always to seek medical help from a professional dermatologist.
