Acne is a broad dermatology term that can mean the odd spot or two to more severe cystic spots.  The features of acne include blackheads and whiteheads (open and closed comedones), inflamed pustule (spots), post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and scarring. Our treatments can help with all types of acne. 

Acne is caused by sebaceous glands producing too much sebum and blocking the hair follicles which in turn causes inflammation.  Driving factors are thought to be build-up of acne bacteria, hormones and stress.


We use prescription ingredients such as topical antibiotics and high strength retinoids as well as cosmeceutical ingredients like azelaic acid. 

Hormonal acne can either refer to acne that is worse before or during your period or acne that flares during other periods of hormonal fluctuation such as pregnancy and menopause. It can also refer to the distribution of acne, for example hormonal spots tend to occur around the sides of the face, the chin and jawline. 

It’s common to get breakouts in pregnancy especially in the first trimester. Certain ingredients can't be prescribed during pregnancy. However there are several ingredients that are considered safe to use including azelaic acid and niacinamide.

Sisley was super frustrated when she came to us. Acne had been the bane of her life for 2 years and struggling to get real help. Even after 3 months with Uncouth, her progress has been absolutely phenomenal.

My skin has never been this good.

I used to get bad acne and tried loads of products without much success which was really frustrating.

I’ve been using a prescription grade formula for nearly 3 months now and it has been a game changer for my skin. I used to have to get up half an hour earlier to prep my skin and spent ages putting concealer on. I still get the odd spot but this is nothing like what it was before. This service has really improved my quality of life and I wish it had been around earlier.

Better than anything I have used before.

I suffer with melasma and could never find anything that worked. I signed up with Uncouth to test their products and I've noticed a significant difference already. I haven't noticed a difference with other products I have previously bought (and there have been many!) It took about 6 weeks to see results and I’m really really pleased.
