The Best Alpha-H Products and How To Use Them

Alpha-H is an Australian skincare brand, priding itself on the balance of science and nature that goes into each bottle. With products to suit just about every skin type, concern and degree of complexity, there’s something for everybody.

Whether you’re a newbie or a long-time fan, here’s our take on some essential products in the Alpha-H skincare range…

Take your skin to the next level with this potent night-time treatment. With 5% Glycolic acid, to brighten and resurface, watch your complexion firm, even out and tone up with each application of Alpha-H Liquid Gold.

What is Glycolic acid?

Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane that is exceptional at dissolving dead skin cells and resurfacing the skin. Not only does it help to improve your skin’s texture, it also boosts moisture levels in your skin, as well as brightness. 

Glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant that helps to tackle problems like pigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring and dehydration. 


What Skin Types Should Use Alpha-H Liquid Gold?

What is Alpha-H Liquid Gold? Well, it is anti-aging serum best for those with mature skin types, as this serum has anti-aging benefits that will brighten and firm the skin over time.

Alpha-H Liquid Gold contains 5% Glycolic acid and is well suited to normal-dry skin types, as it boosts moisture levels in the skin. 

While Alpha-H Liquid Gold helps to improve acne scarring and congestion, those with oily-combination skin types will benefit more from treatments containing Salycilic acid, which helps balance oil production. 

Those with sensitive skin may find products with Glycolic acid irritating and should opt for something with something milder like Lactic acid


How to Use Alpha-H Liquid Gold

  • Thoroughly cleanse skin and pat dry.

  • Douse a cotton pad in Alpha-H Liquid Gold and apply to the face and neck, avoiding the eye area.

  • Follow with a moisturiser.

  • Leave to absorb into the skin.

  • Apply SPF the next day, as your skin will be sensitized to UV damage.

  • Apply 2 to 3 times a week as part of an evening skin care routine.


What Does Alpha-H Liquid Gold Do For Your Skin? 

Alpha-H Liquid Gold is a radiance boosting exfoliator known for its instantaneous results, working in just under 20 minutes. Alpha-H Liquid Gold also provides long term benefits like firming, brightening, and increased cell turnover. 

This is a gentle formulation that won’t burn your face off, but it is still potent enough to provide salon quality results - try it under a mask for an intensive treatment!

The perfect moisturiser for our harsh Australian sun. Combining SPF30 with collagen boosters and wrinkle-preventing properties, Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50+ is a lightweight lotion that won’t block pores, resists water and is ideal for use under make-up or alone.

Why is using SPF in your moisturiser important?

Due to its method of application, its difficult for SPF of any level to live up to its proposed protection level. If you are only applying a thin layer, using a moisturiser with SPF probably won’t be enough on it’s own. 

That being said, it does add a valuable extra layer of protection, particularly if it is 50+. Anything that helps shield us against sun damage is our friend, and is here to stay. 

What Skin Types Should Use Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50+?

Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50+ is best suited for those who are looking to prevent signs of premature aging. The lightweight cream texture of Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50+, makes this moisturiser suitable for all skin types.

How to Use Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50+?

  • Apply liberally to skin 20 minutes before sun exposure.

  • Reapply every 2 hours for maximum protection.

  • Reapply after swimming, towelling off, exercising, and perspiring excessively. 

  • Can be worn under makeup.

What Does The Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50+ Do?

An exfoliant that won’t damage your skin? Yes please! With moisturising macadamia nut oil, bacteria-fighting peppermint oil and brightening cucumber extract, Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub is a glycolic scrub that gently lifts dead cells to smooth and renew the skin.

Why use a physical exfoliant?

Physical exfoliants treat the top layers of the skin through using beads, powders or fabrics to scour away dead skin cells. 

While you may have heard some concerning things about “micro-tearing”, many physical exfoliants are gentle enough to be used regularly without causing this problem. 

Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub contains biodegradable Jojoba beads, which gently buff away dead skin. Physical exfoliants provide quick results and leave your skin instantly renewed!

What Skin Types Should Use Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub?

Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub is best for those with oily, combination and acne prone skin as it decongests skin and rids skin of excess sebum and impurities. 

Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub is also good for dry and mature skin, as the combination of Glycolic acid and Jojoba wax beads help to diminish dry patches and boosts hydration. 

If you have sensitive skin this product may be a bit intense, as the combination of Physical and Chemical exfoliants may be irritating. 

How to Use Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub

  • Cleanse face thoroughly and leave damp.

  • Apply the facial scrub and massage over the face.

  • Avoid the delicate eye area.

  • Rinse well to remove.

  • Use twice a week and follow with your preferred Alpha-H moisturiser.

What Does The Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub Do?
