Alumier MD is great since it comes with products that are called the Calming Collection. This set of products provides significant home care that will aid with sensitive and redness of the skin. It comes with four products that include SensiCalm, Calm-R, HydraCalm, and Clear Shield Broad Specturm Sunscreen SPF 42. SensiCalm works as a smooth, hydrating cleanser that softly eliminates contaminants and extra oil while relaxing the skin. Calm-R is a hydrating serum that is great for treating people with sensitive skin. HydraCalm contains supple ingredients that aid with soothing skin that experiences redness. Lastly, the Clear Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 42 is non-comedogenic and is helpful for shielding sensitive skin from the sun. We recommend using all four products to treat your Rosacea and have your skin looking better than it has ever looked before. Remember that improving your Rosacea will take time. 

In addition to using the right home care products getting treatments done for rosacea is a great combination alongside the Alumier MD products. It is advised to get chemical peels to properly treat your rosacea. For mild to moderate individuals who experience Rosacea, a chemical peel in addition to the right continuous care can has the ability to enhance the skin’s appearance. Peels have the capability to reduce the look of redness and acne like bumps through exfoliating the top layer of the skin that is then transformed by new, radiant skin cells. The most common peels to treat Rosacea are Glycolic acid peels as they treat the redness as well as the dilated blood vessels that produce the condition. Another ingredient in peels that helps treat Rosacea is salicylic acid. This is because it assists with reducing inflammation in the skin. The key as well is getting more than one treatment and getting them done in two to three-week intervals.
