It is an understatement to say that there are a large number of skincare products available. Numerous formulae, lotions, soaps, cleansers, and more are offered to treat a host of skin conditions, each touted by one skincare specialist or physician or another. The products by AlumierMD help cut through this chatter by offering targeted, effective solutions that are designed by experienced biochemists. This allows AlumierMD skincare products to effectively help with a number of common skin conditions.
As we age, the body’s systems grow less effective and less efficient. This can be seen in the dry, rough skin caused by the accumulation of dead skin cells as their cycling slows down. The epidermis, the uppermost layer of the skin, will also thin for similar reasons. There are, however, options that can be used to keep your appearance fresh, vibrant, and youthful.
The first step is exfoliation to remove dead cells and spur the generation of newer, younger skin. Several AlumierMD skincare products—like Retinol Resurfacing Serums or the Lotus Scrub—specialize in this process. The next step is to boost the lower layers of skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. Products like the Vitamin Rich Smoother and EverActive C&E offer tried-and-tested solutions for this stage. Hydration—such as from the Ultimate Boost Serum or HydraDew Moisturizer—helps preserve the aging skin and minimizes the appearance of rough textures or wrinkles.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition most often seen in fair-skinned individuals. The exact cause isn’t known, but the effects are well documented and take the form of facial flushing, redness, pronounced and visible blood vessels, and bumps and pimples that can sometimes be pus-filled. Since rosacea is a medical condition, you should always get a formal diagnosis before you start attempting a treatment plan.
Although the specific causes of rosacea aren’t known, it is established that the condition makes the skin more prone to irritation. Using soothing ingredients like sea whip, aloe, and niacinamide—which are found in AlumierMD Calm-R, HydraCalm Moisturizer, and SensiCalm Cleanser products—will help calm the skin and reduce redness.
Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States and has three primary causes: the blockage of hair follicles (pores) by dead skin cells, overproduction of the skin oil sebum, and overgrowth of the P. acnes bacteria and the ensuing inflammation.
The best way to deal with acne will depend on an individual’s underlying cause. If blocked pores are to blame, then exfoliation with products like AHA Renewal Serum or the above-mentioned Retinol Resurfacing Serum can expunge the detritus and free up your follicles. If bacteria are at play, antibiotic ingredients like hinokitiol, resvertatrol, and tea tree oil from the Acne Balancing Serum, Acne Clarifying Cleanser, or Spot Clearing Treatment can take care of the invaders. The cleanser and balancing serum can also be used to balance sebum levels, as can the Matticlear product.
Hyperpigmentation is when melanin builds up in a specific area of the skin and creates a dark patch. The condition can come from excess sun exposure, as a consequence of skin inflammation or irritation, or as a sign of other skin issues like melasma. Lastly, hormone imbalances such as those caused by pregnancy, menopause, or certain hormone or birth control treatments can also spur hyperpigmentation.
Prevention is the best approach to dealing with hyperpigmentation. Products like melanogenesis inhibitors will either stop melanin from being produced or will restrict how much of the pigment can get from production cells (melanocytes) into the skin cells. AlumierMD products such as EvenTone Brightening Serum, Lightening Lotion, and EverActive C&E contain ingredients like kojic acid, licorice, and oyster phoenix mushrooms that possess pigment-blocking properties.
For sun protection, broad-spectrum sunscreens like the Moisture Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 40 can be employed. AlumierMD also offers tinted sunscreens, like the Sheer Hydration SPF 40, which can be used to even out the appearance of your skin tone to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation while also preventing more occurrences.
