Why Do I Need a Specific Product Regimen for My Skin Type
Most of us have a basic understanding of our skin type. Some of us have dry skin, some are prone to excess oil and acne breakouts, and some have difficulty finding products that don’t aggravate our already sensitive complexions. With this basic understanding, it’s easy to discern that dry skin craves heavy creams, and that oily skin requires lightweight moisturizers and robust cleansers. However, selecting products for more sensitive skin can be more nuanced.
Although skin types tend to be broken down into a few succinct categories, the truth is that every person’s skin needs vary. So, how do we determine which products are best for our skin, and why is it so important that we adhere to specific product regimens tailored to our unique skin type?

How Active and Inactive Ingredients Affect Skin Health
Our full line of LUMEN skincare products has been specially formulated to include medical-grade skincare ingredients while omitting commonly used filler and inactive ingredients that are known to cause unnecessary irritation and mask symptoms rather than treat them. Active ingredients that help regulate oil production, provide antibacterial properties and contribute to gentle and ongoing exfoliation can be found in our oily/acne line. Meanwhile, products that are high in antioxidants, hydroxy acids, soothing agents, brightening ingredients, melanin inhibitors, and collagen stimulators can be found throughout our normal/dry, sensitive, and post-procedure lines.
To help ensure skin safety, our line of LUMEN skincare products is 100% fragrance-free and paraben-free.
Finding Products That Work in Partnership to Boost Results
The beauty of LUMEN skincare products is that while each product serves its purpose and can be used successfully as a standalone option, the formulations within our line have been created to support one another and boost overall results. When you build and maintain a daily product regimen, the health and vitality of your skin are improved throughout the day and night to give you the best possible outcome.
