If being stuck at home, make-up free for a fair chunk of this year has taught us anything, it’s that our skin could do with a little extra love. Without a reason to pack on your daily face, those fine lines, clogged pores, and red spots are a little more noticeable than usual. So who could blame you for reaching for more of those top-shelf skincare products? After all, if you spend on good skin care, you won’t even need to top up your makeup supplies—so you’re basically saving money in the long run, right? Well, that’s how we’re looking at it.

When it comes to top-of-the-line skincare, you can’t get much better than prescription-based products. Tailored to your specific needs, these medical-grade solutions from Software have just launched and are already gaining major buzz in the beauty community for their ability to fix common skin issues like acne and pigmentation real quick—promising results in just nine weeks. Yep, might seem too good to be true, but this is all supported by medical evidence and backed by skin experts like Dr Ryan De Cruz (consultant dermatologist), Dr Matthew Vickers (GP) and Tamer Hanna (pharmacist). But if you’re still unsure, a quick look at their before and afters will have you 100% convinced.

Founded by Niamh Mooney, Software is all about providing access to quality skincare, no matter where you live. Growing up in regional Victoria, Mooney remembers how frustrating it was trying to treat her own skin issues as a teenager. “We had to drive three hours to see a dermatologist,” she said “And many GPs didn’t have the training needed to deal with chronic skin conditions.” But now, thanks to Software, you can access accurate advice and quality treatments anywhere in Australia.

So how on earth does it all work? Well, basically you start by sharing your concerns and a few pics of your skin in an initial consult with an experienced GP. Software’s skin experts will then prescribe the active ingredients—think good stuff like hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, AZA acid, etc.—at strengths suitable for your skin and get busy developing your personalised solution. Once it’s ready, they’ll ship your first lot of miracle products in chic minimal packaging directly to your door. To keep you on track to achieve the clearest skin ever, they’ll check in regularly and adjust your individual treatment as needed. 

If you’re ready to make the switch to prescription skincare, good news is Software is actually surprisingly affordable. You’ll only pay $29 for the initial consult, then it’s just $44 a month (billed and shipped every two months) for the treatment itself, so way cheaper than a monthly visit to your local skin clinic. You can pause or cancel your upcoming deliveries whenever you need. And if one of their doctor’s decides their products just aren’t for you they’ll refund you the initial consult—what have you got to lose? Start your journey to clear skin here.
