Rosacea is a long-term skin condition that typically affects the face and requires treatment.

Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by facial flushing, persistent redness, visible vessels and blemishes. The first sign of rosacea may be redness or flushing that comes and goes.

Rosacea is most often seen in fair-skinned people between the ages of 30 and 50 and typically affects the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Although the cause of rosacea is not yet known, many theories exist including unstable blood vessels, the Demodex mite, genetics, H.pylori bacteria in the stomach, small intestine bacterial overgrowth and altered immune response.

Rosacea symptoms can be triggered by very hot or cold temperature, sun exposure, intense exercise, cosmetics, hot drinks, alcohol, caffeine, spicy food, stress and medications. Rosacea can be a very difficult skin condition to deal with on daily basis.

AlumierMD has carefully chosen ingredients that focus on rosacea symptoms and potential causes to help relieve the flushing, redness and inflammation.

Redyless®, also known as piperonyl glucose, is a biosynthesized ingredient that prevents flushing in response to heat, cold and food-related stresses. It also visibly reduces persistent redness by reinforcing blood vessel structure.

Hinokitiol, also known as Beta-Thujaplicin, is extracted from the oils of the western red cedar tree. Hinokitiol is a superpower ingredient that has antioxidant, antibacterial and antimicrobial properties to address the Demodex mite and associated bacteria that may be involved in the pathogenesis of rosacea.

Gorgonian extract is an anti-inflammatory compound derived from a marine organism known as sea whip, which is a renewable resource in the Caribbean Sea. Tetrapeptide-14 is an anti-inflammatory peptide. Together, Gorgonian extract and tetrapeptide-14 relieve the redness and inflammation seen in rosacea.

Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil Unsaponifiables is a soothing ingredient that is obtained by distillation of organic sunflower seed oil. It is also a moisturizer that replenishes skin lipids, such as ceramides, to optimize skin barrier protection.rosacea treatment

How can rosacea be improved?

Step 1: Consult your skin care professional

Rosacea is a medical condition that should be diagnosed by a skin care professional before starting any treatment plan.

Step 2: Reduce inflammation and redness

Calm the skin with skin soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as hinokitiol, sea whip, niacinaminde and aloe. Prevent flare-ups caused by environmental factors with antioxidants.

Step 3: Repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier

Maintaining the skin’s natural barrier is crucial to preventing further moisture loss and improving cell turnover. Dry skin has a slower cell turnover compare to adequately hydrated skin; gentle exfoliating treatments can help regulate the process.

Step 3: Reduce bacteria and/or other microbial agents

One theorized cause of rosacea is bacteria and another is the Demodex mite that releases bacteria into the skin when it dies. Use natural antimicrobial ingredients to help keep skin free of breakouts.

Step 4: Protect from UV rays

Choose mineral-based broad-spectrum sunscreens with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which keep the skin cooler than chemical sunscreen ingredients by reflecting UV rays. Mineral ingredients are generally less irritating than chemicals, which is important for sensitive and rosacea-prone skin.
