Claudia Clague from Alpha-H takes us through her best facial for ageing, tired skin using potent actives in skincare to give your complexion a renewed glow.
It’s important to note this routine is quite intense, so is best suited to normal to mature skin types which are used to active ingredients. Take some time for yourself, and use this express facial once a week!
What are anti-ageing facial benefits?
By incorporating this facial into your weekly routine you can expect skin that is clearer and renewed, as your skin’s moisture levels are boosted and skin cell turnover is encouraged.
Step 1: Double cleanse with a pH balanced cleanser
Massage the Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser all over your face to remove excess oil, dirt and debris. If you're wearing makeup, make sure your first cleanse is on dry skin to more effectively shift long-wearing products. This lightweight, creamy cleanser is rich in Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, and formulated at pH 5.5 to respect the skin's natural balance, preparing it to readily accept the next step - Accelerating Acids.
Step 2: Say goodbye to those dead skin cells
Gently massage the Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub over the face for 1-2 minutes. With results that rival professional microdermabrasion, this hardworking exfoliant is your two minute exfoliation skin saviour. Blended with 12% Glycolic Acid, eco-friendly Jojoba Beads and Caffeine this dual action formula activates skin cell turnover for smooth skin that radiates clarity.
Step 3: Now it’s time for the main-event mask
The Alpha-H Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask works hard to hyper-stimulate and renew the skin while also hydrating and repairing its barrier function. Strictly a once a week mask, leave it on for a maximum 10 minutes! With a blend of 15% Glycolic Acid and 5% Lactic Acid, we suggest taking it off after 3-5 minutes if it’s your first time. This one is SUPER active.
Step 4: Get that goodness back into your skin
Hydrate, protect and revive your skin with this genius blend of B vitamins. Press 3-4 drops of the Alpha-H Vitamin B Serum into your face, neck, and decolletage to hydrate and shield the skin from damaging environmental aggressors, thereby reducing the appearance of premature ageing.
Step 5: Lock in the moisture
A soothing skin staple, the Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream is designed to counter the appearance of redness and irritation. Massage all over in upward circular motions, to nourish and replenish skin. Bio-active sea minerals and essential fatty acids help to revitalise, hydrate parched skin, and promote skin renewal and micro-circulation.
