About Alpha H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask
Renowned skincare brand Alpha H continue to push the boundaries of skincare with their acclaimed Liquid Gold range. A cult favourite which continues to impress time and time again, the potent formula found in Alpha H products promises an effective and visible result in a short space of time.
The Liquid Gold Mask with lavender extract is a powerful yet gentle exfoliator, removing dull, dead skin cells revealing brighter, plumper and firmer skin below. With 15% glycolic acid from pure sugar cane extract, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring is dramatically improved.
Glycolic acid is primarily used in professional skin resurfacing treatments. A natural component found in sugarcane and pineapple, once applied to the skin it reacts with the upper layer of the epidermis, breaking down the structures which hold dead skin cells together and exposing new skin cells underneath.
Alongside this powerful ingredient are healing rose and lavender oil, nourishing honey and hydrating wheatgerm oil to help soften the skin, increase suppleness and soothe any redness and irritation.
Smoothing and Perfecting Formula
Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and is composed of several layers. The uppermost visible layer of your skin’s surface is the epidermis, made up of millions of individual cells called keratinocytes - the same substance which also forms keratin, which makes up your hair and nails.
Where the epidermis meets the dermis, new keratinocytes are formed. Over time, these new cells find their way up to the skin’s surface, where they are weathered by your daily activities and eventually die. This layer of dead skin cells is called the stratum corneum.
The clever formulation found in Alpha H Liquid Gold products removes this dead layer of skin in a gentle but effective way, exposing the new layer of skin cells underneath the stratum corneum. The result is smooth, bright and perfect-looking skin.
Because Alpha H Smoothing and Perfecting Mask contains 15% glycolic acid, it’s ideal as a once-a-week treatment or before special events when skin needs brightening.
Soothing and healing extracts
The powerful exfoliating properties of this magic mask are balanced with soothing botanical extracts to help heal and nourish skin.
Rose oil is antiseptic and astringent, helping to tone and lift the skin, and protect against the formation of wrinkles. It is also a potent cicatrisant, promoting cell regeneration and helping to heal both new and old scars.
Lavender oil enhances blood circulation and is most helpful in treating acne, inhibiting the spot-causing bacteria in the skin’s sebum glands. Honey is also a natural antioxidant and has antimicrobial properties, encouraging skin to replenish old cells leaving it soft and supple. It also absorbs and retains moisture, supporting the skin’s natural hydration and leaving it fresh.
The final effective natural ingredient is wheatgerm oil, extracted from wheat kernels. This contains a high concentration of vitamin E which helps to block free radicals from the body, preventing premature aging. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, calming and hydrating sensitive skin.
