About the Author

I am a self-confessed skincare junkie, and an experienced educator in cosmetics retail, covering everything from product knowledge, to skin science, soft skills, and sales training. To me, beauty is an extension of personality and a part of my wellness - I feel great in my own skin, but also have the option to play up and express myself with makeup!

So although I am a self-confessed skincare junkie, I do believe less is more. I really enjoy the occasional indulgence; every now and then I can get on board with a 12 step routine.

But my skin is always at it's best when I strip back my products, listen to my skin as it changes each day and give it only what it needs.

That’s why I’ve put together a basic skincare routine I’m calling “The 3-Step Approach” - that’s resilient, clear and radiant skin in just three steps.

It’s results-driven, it’s transformative, and most importantly it’s an easy skincare routine that doesn’t take up too much time.

3 Alpha-h products for a simple skin care routine

Is a simple skincare routine better?

By stripping back your routine to the essentials, you can make sure you are getting the most out of each step. Another pro to minimising your routine is that there is less chance of irritation!

Charlotte’s basic skincare steps:

Step 1: Activate the skin with a pH balanced cleanser

Activate and prepare the skin for active ingredients with our pH balancing cleansers. Our cleansers ‘activate’ the skin by balancing its pH - preparing it for the optimal absorption of active ingredients. No irritation necessary.

These gentle non-foaming and non-stripping formulations are clinically designed to purge the skin of environmental pollutants, product buildup and grime.

Our pick: The Alpha-H Triple Action Cleanser - This cooling and anti-inflammatory gel effectively cleanses and removes all traces of makeup while balancing the skin’s pH. Thyme extract fights the spread of oil and bacteria, assisting in the reduction of breakouts. Aloe Vera and Cucumber team up to soothe and hydrate. 

Step 2: Accelerate skin renewal 

Accelerate skin renewal and rejuvenation with our acid-based exfoliators. Alpha-H is a proud pioneer of using Accelerating Acids to resurface, replenish and rejuvenate the complexion. They correct damage, boost collagen and revitalise texture and tone. Our Accelerating Acids – Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic, Pyruvic – maintain optimum potency thanks to their unique low pH formulations.

Whatever your skin type or concern, incorporating accelerating acids into your routine will work to build skin resilience for a luminous complexion that glows with good health.

Our pick: The Alpha-H Liquid Gold Glycolic Acid treatment - The crown jewel of the Alpha-H range, Liquid Gold combines 5% Glycolic Acid with a unique low-pH delivery system to stimulate action at a deeper layer of the skin. This miracle product accelerates the skin’s renewal process, dramatically improves brightness and tone, supports collagen production and helps minimise the visible signs of sun damage, ageing and blemishes. 

Step 3: Advocate for your skin health

Advocate for your skin health with our nourishing vitamin serums, replenishing moisturisers and protective SPFs. Skin, much like all of us, needs to feel supported, safe and empowered.

Enrich, safeguard and ensure skin resilience with transformative ingredients that nourish, replenish and protect. This is what it means to ‘Advocate’ for your skin.

Our pick: The Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50+ is the perfect way to advocate for your skin, every single day. A lightweight, non-greasy, antioxidant-rich formula that provides optimal sun protection with 5 UVA/UBA filters. Alongside effortless hydration, thanks to Silica and Pro Vitamin B5 with anti-inflammatory benefits from Vitamin E.
