Everyone has their own concerns about their skin. And achieving that perfectly clear, imperfection-free skin doesn’t come easy, especially with the wide range of skincare offered whether over-the-counter or medical-grade.
It’s easy to look at your skin and self-diagnose from face value your skin type; dry, oily, normal or a combination. It’s also easy to acknowledge in the mirror if you suffer from acne, blemishes or blackheads, but the problem is people jump to Dr Google to search for treatment without discovering what is going on below the surface of their skin.
You wouldn’t trust google to diagnose symptoms when you have any health concerns, so why treat your skin any differently? It is still your body, right?
Therefore it is vital to speak to a professional who not only has expert knowledge of the ageing process, of skin types and conditions but most importantly really cares about you and your skin. The first step to achieving the best possible results for your skin is for the clinician to take time and really understand what is going on with you, your skin and your lifestyle. This allows the correct diagnosis to be made and from there, you can be advised of the best skincare and treatments for you. Booking a skin consultation with an expert has a proven track record of positive outcomes for all patients because everyone is so unique.
Here at Cosmetier, we can promise to provide all the knowledge and expertise you need to make the right decision for you and your skin. All is provided by our expert aesthetic doctor, Rachna Sharma.

Alumier Skincare Staples
A thorough cleanse of your skin every morning and evening is something everyone can agree on. Cleansing your face when you wake up helps to remove any toxins, dead skin cells and excess oils your skin has released overnight. In the evening it goes without saying your skin requires a cleanse, from makeup or just pollution in the air.
Alumier recommends leaning towards a cream cleanser like Hydraboost if your skin is more on the dry side. HydraBoost is a hydrating pH-balanced cream cleanser with the staple ingredients vitamin E, sunflower oil and argan oil. All these ingredients are tested and proven to leave the skin smooth, soft and intensely hydrated.
If your skin is on the more oily side of the spectrum, a refreshing cleanser such as the Alumier purifying gel cleanser would be recommended. The plant-based surfactants gently cleanse the skin leaving it supple and smooth. For this cleanser, the key ingredients are chamomile, aloe and opuntia ficus-indica, all with the purpose of soothing and hydrating the skin as well as stripping back any unwanted oils, Ultimately leaving your skin feeling refreshed and comfortable.
If your skin is sensitive or combination skin, then we would recommend Sensicalm Cleanser as this not only gently cleans your skin it is hydrating without being oily.
Treatments like exfoliators and serums depend on the issues and concerns individuals face with their skin.
Exfoliating is vital for breaking down pigmented cells and removing the build-up of dry skin. However, your skin type will determine the importance of prioritising exfoliating in your skincare routine. The right exfoliate for you is dependent on your skin type. Individuals who suffer from dry skin will be recommended to go with a gentle exfoliator to ensure they aren’t stripping their skin of all its natural oils as well as keeping it naturally hydrated. Whereas an oily skin type would be recommended to go with a more vigorous approach.
Blemishes, redness, and dehydration are all issues that require different treatments however the symptoms can feel very similar. This is another reason to find out exactly what is going on behind the skin!
