Multi-Award winning Alpha-H Liquid Gold is on elf my cult beauty products of all time. I have fantastic results with it and has been my skin saviour for years.
Alpha-H say, transform your skin with Liquid Gold, an award-winning revolutionary resurfacing treatment that uses a state of the art, low pH delivery system to effectively diminish wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage. Praised by the beauty elite, our bestselling ‘cult’ product works like an ‘overnight facial’ to brighten and revitalise tired, ageing skin, and radically improve the appearance of the complexion. Clinical studies show that in just 20 minutes, Liquid Gold decreases wrinkle depth, improves texture and increases moisture within the skin.
For mature, sun damaged, prematurely ageing and acne-scarred skin
Clarifies and brightens the complexion, reduces the appearance of pigmentation, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles.Works as a toner, exfoliator, serum, and moisturiser. Increases moisture within the skin
I use this every third night for a month or so when my skin needs a bit of a wake up call. It works by stimulating cell activity with alpha hydroxy acids which melt the ‘glue’ that binds those nasty dulling dead skin cells to the surface. It drags your skin out of its’s comfort-zone pH of 5.5 to around 3 which causes a cellular party on your face!! Skin then has to work really hard to re-establish equilibrium. It also bolsters synthesis of elastin and collagen which keeps our skin firm. Penetrating deep into pores it sees off nasty spot causing bacteria. It exfoliates and leaves skin much healthier looking.
It is claimed Liquid Gold may also help diminish the appearance of acne scarring and hyper pigmentation.
I pour onto a cotton pad and swipe over my clean, dry face and neck (avoiding eye area) at bedtime and sleep without applying anything else to my face. This is a bit alien to me as I’m an oil freak and usually apply an Argan oil slick to my face overnight as this works for my dry/combination skin.
On waking, my skin feels and looks healthy, not dry and tight as you might expect from sleeping without any form of moisture applied.
A word of caution though. It’s recommended that you allow your skin to build up tolerance to Alpha-H by using a dampened cotton pad along with the product just twice a week to begin with. Once your skin has adjusted to the onslaught you can go ahead and use like myself, every third night if you wish. You will feel some tingling but this lets you know it’s doing it’s job.
Always read the full manufacturers instructions and carry out a patch test when trying a new product for the first time.
Let me know how you get on!
