On the frontier between cosmetics and medicine, Dermo-Cosmetics products improve your skin’s general condition and boost its appearance. Atopic skin, which overreacts to stress and is subject to eczema, irritation and redness, particularly benefits from these products, which must meet both pharmaceutical manufacturing standards and medical requirements.
The three main purposes of creams, serums, lotions, balms and other products made by the Dermo-Cosmetics industry are to protect skin, moisturize it and correct defects. Because Dermo-Cosmetics brands engage in research and use patented, high-tech methods and effective ingredients—the Quebec-based company IDC, for example, uses a record concentration of active ingredients in its products—you know they can be trusted.
Dermo-Cosmetics provide intensive care to all three layers of your skin: the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. By creating a barrier against external aggression, pollution and UV rays while providing an appropriate level of moisture, many of these products help prevent aging, while others fight problems such as dryness or sensitivity.

- Dehydrated, sensitive skin (effective against discomfort, redness and soreness)

What’s the best way to improve your skin’s appearance?
In order to choose products that meet your needs and to get the best possible results, it’s crucial to know your skin type. If you’re unsure, make an appointment with a Jean Coutu cosmetician, who will perform a personalized skin analysis and determine your ideal level of hydration.
Your skin lacks elasticity and radiance, or tends to peel? Cleanse it with a soft, non-astringent product, like a cleansing milk, and do not skimp on hydration! To avoid itching and tightness, use rich skin care products, which provide deep and long-lasting nourishment.
