My Alpha Skin Care regimen from my pregancy went into my postpartum routine, and then I eventually found my way back to retinols and then back to mostly AHA-based skincare products. It’s been a long, weird, winding road of skincare over the past decade!
Alpha Skin Care has come a long way over the past several years and they’ve added several new products to their repertoire. Here’s a peek at the Alpha Skin Care I’ve been using lately, starting with the Refreshing Face Wash ($7.99). This face wash uses citric AHAs to help remove oil and impurities. It doesn’t strip your skin, which is a good thing.
After I’m finished cleansing, I layer on Alpha Skin Care Essential Renewal Lotion ($16.99) which contains 10% Glycolic AHA. Be warned, it stings! It’s not a bad feeling, but you can definitely feel a light sensation as it works to remove the dead skin cells on your face and neck. This stinging goes away after you apply moisturizer and it does work very well to improve the overall glow and appearance of your skin – my skin needed a bit of help!
Alpha Skin Care Renewal Body Lotion ($16.99) contains 12% glycolic AHA and is the gift my ashy legs needed! Seriously, this lotion helped the dry skin on my legs, which has become a situation!
Alpha Skin Care Dual Action Skin Lightener ($10.99) contains 2% hydroquinone and 10% AHAs to help lighten dark spots on your skin. Hydroquinone is a controversial skincare ingredient, so if you’re apt to use this I’d do a bit of research first.
Alpha Skin Care Essential Facial Moisturizer ($14.99) contains hyaluronic acid to help add moisture to skin and is what I use at night.
Alpha Skin Care Enhanced Facial Moisturizer ($16.99) is my daytime moisturizer and contains a Broad Spectrum SPF 15, which is very important when you’re using AHA skincare products. It’s a nice primer and doesn’t exacerbate my oily skin situation.
