WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN USING THE ALPHA-H RANGE?
Alpha-H is a concentrated skincare range that uses active ingredients to achieve the best results possible. Some tingling and redness may occur as you notice a change in your skin when first using the products. These responses indicate stimulation in the lower layers of the skin to promote the production of firming fibers, increased hydration and the removal of the unwanted build-up of dead skin cells. Your skin will start to feel softer, smoother, and plumper and look more even, with a brighter more youthful glow.
WHAT ARE THE KEY INGREDIENTS IN ALPHA-H?
The Alpha-H name has become synonymous with Glycolic Acid – the key ingredient in our number one selling product,
. Glycolic Acid is the most widely used Alpha Hydroxy Acid in the range, however Alpha-H utilises other active ingredients to compliment the results gained from Glycolic Acid. The key ingredients range from potent vitamins, essential oils, structural peptides, invigorating herbs, natural plant extracts and much needed antioxidants.
WHAT IS GLYCOLIC ACID?
Glycolic Acid is perhaps the best known Alpha Hydroxy Acid in the cosmetic industry. It is naturally derived from sugar cane and is often selected for use in cosmetic products because of its small molecular structure, ease of penetration into the skin and its water binding properties. Once applied to the skin, Glycolic Acid creates a tingling sensation on the surface layer of the skin. This is due to the low pH of Glycolic Acid which creates a dermal response to promote the production of collagen. Collagen works to rejuvenate and remodel the skin's scaffolding, promoting a smoother and more rigid tone. This also softens fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and encourages a younger looking complexion.
The anti-ageing and firming aspect of Glycolic Acid has ensured it will always have a place in today’s skincare industry however, Glycolic Acid is most well known for its exfoliation properties. Glycolic Acid exfoliates the skin by melting away the ionic bonds that hold skin cells together. This promotes a healthy and constant cell renewal process that is necessary to prevent a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Exfoliation is vital to preventing blocked pores, deep lines and wrinkles, an uneven complexion, dull appearance and thickened skin.
WHAT ARE THE LONG TERM BENEFITS OF USING ALPHA-H SKINCARE PRODUCTS?
Our skin protects us from the external aggressors of everyday life. Unfortunately the protective mechanisms of the skin tend to flaw our appearance with dead skin build-up, unwanted pigmentation deposits and the excessive breakdown of collagen, forming deep lines and wrinkles. As the skin ages, it becomes less able to hold a solid defence against UV rays, hormones, stress, lifestyle and free radicals. Alpha-H gives the skin a fighting chance. Long term use of the range prevents the skin from succumbing to external aggravators by maintaining a healthy cell renewal process; preventing dead skin build-up, constant stimulation of firming fibers; which slows down the ageing process, pigment reducing ingredients; keeping the skin as flawless as possible and antioxidants to fight off free radical damage.
It is common for one to think that your skin needs to change from one skin care range to the next over time. This is often related to the feeling that the skin has become “accustomed” to the product and results are not as evident as they first were. Alpha-H has the ability to constantly challenge the skin with pH adjustments, creating waves of stimulation and more. Results are amplified with long term use of Alpha-H, they are not reduced and do not plateau with the natural course of skin ageing.
IS TINGLING NORMAL WHEN USING ALPHA-H PRODUCTS?
It is very normal to experience some tingling when you start using Alpha-H. It is due to the Glycolic Acid in the products that create stimulation deep within the skin. Tingling is a sign that the product is working correctly on your skin. Nonetheless, it is important to remember that once your skin has become accustomed to using more active ingredients this effect will lessen, but that does not mean that the product is no longer working.
ARE ALPHA-H PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR A SENSITIVE SKIN?
Alpha-H is suitable for all skin types and conditions; however those with truly sensitive skin will need to take steps to increase their tolerance of the active ingredients to gain desired results.
Soothing Skin Kit
is the ideal starting point for a sensitive skin.
SHOULD YOU USE A SUN PROTECTION PRODUCT WHEN USING ALPHA-H PRODUCTS?
It is absolutely necessary to use a sun protection product SPF 30+ at any time regardless of whether you are using Alpha Hydroxy Acid’s or not, as it is now proven that the exposure to UVA/UVB rays is the major cause of premature ageing. It is imperative to use appropriate sun protection when using Alpha Hydroxy Acid’s as many skin concerns we treat are directly related to sun exposure i.e. premature ageing, sun damage, pigmentation and age spots.
AT WHAT AGE CAN YOU START USING ALPHA-H SKINCARE?
Due to the active ingredients and nature of the Alpha-H range, it is best suited for 18+ however, our Clear Skin Collection is suitable for skins as young as 12. The earlier one starts to use correct skincare, the less premature ageing and skin damage occurs throughout their lives.
IS ALPHA-H SAFE TO USE DURING PREGNANCY?
As long as Vitamin A and Salicylic Acid are avoided, then Alpha-H can be used during pregnancy.
