Struggling with rosacea? Good news: there’s a full range of AlumierMD skincare products formulated that can relieve the symptoms.
What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, swelling, and changes in the skin texture. The symptoms are most visible across cheeks, nose, and chin. This condition affects 1 in 10 people in the UK. This is a lot of people but many cases are mild.
According to Patient symptoms may first appear in your early 20s but the usual age that symptoms appear is in your 30s-60s. Rarely, rosacea can affect children. Women are more commonly affected than men. However, rosacea is often less severe in women than in men.
Common Rosacea Triggers
One of the most important things you can do to manage rosacea is learning about the most common triggers and know how to tell facts from myths. For example, a common misconception is that alcohol, caffeine, and dairy are the main culprits, but in fact, the most common rosacea triggers are:
- Sun exposure
- Emotional stress
- Hot weather
The first two triggers -sun exposure and emotional stress- are particularly important, so if you have rosacea, it’s crucial that you find a way to reduce sun exposure and manage stress. Knowing that you’re not alone and that the right skincare routine can improve rosacea symptoms. This is precisely why it’s a good idea to start using AlumierMD skincare products daily.
AlumierMD Peels And Rosacea
If you’re struggling with rosacea, you may think that a peel is out of the question. But AlumierMD Peels are formulated to be safe and effective on sensitive skin types, as they’re gentle and their strength can be customised to make your skin more resistant to common triggers.
Before an AlumierMD Peel, your beauty therapist will apply an AlumierMD Deep Moisture Mask. This is an intensely hydrating treatment that prepares sensitive skin for the peel and helps maximise the final results.
Daily Skincare For Sensitive Skin Or Rosacea
Rosacea is a chronic condition, so for optimal results, you need to follow a daily skincare routine. Every now and then, you can complement it with AlumierMD peels. Now is the right time to start preparing your skin for the summer heat and other triggers that cause rosacea.
A daily skincare routine for rosacea typically includes:
- SensiCalm cleanser – which soothes and cleanses rosacea-prone skin
- Calm-R – an antioxidant-rich serum that targets redness
- Clear Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 42 Sunscreen – a physical sunscreen that protects sensitive skin
Moisten face with lukewarm water and apply a dime-sized portion to face and neck, massaging in a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and gently pat dry. Follow with AlumierMD Calm-R serum smooth 1-2 pumps over face and then apply Clear Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 42 sun protection generously and evenly to face, neck and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply the sun protection as needed or after swimming, washing, towel drying or heavy perspiring.
- SensiCalm cleanser
- Calm-R serum
- HydraCalm Moisturizer – a powerful hydrating product that restores moisture overnight
Moisten face with lukewarm water and apply a dime-sized portion to face and neck, massaging in a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and gently pat dry. Follow with AlumierMD Calm-R serum smooth 1-2 pumps over face and then apply HydraCalm Moisturiser smooth 1-2 pumps over the face. Use the moisturiser at night.
