WINTER SKINCARE WITH ALPHA-H
Every Winter and Summer I notice myself switching things up a bit when it comes to skincare. Different climate, air, heat and now that I’m pregnant it’s a whole new story. You might all remember me suffering from adult acne a few years ago? Luckily the skin condition is now sorted, but I’m still being super careful about the products I use daily.
I’ve heard amazing things about Alpha-H products and have been desperate to try a few, especially since they have been created by the founder who also used to suffer from adult acne. I’m very excited to partner up with UNINEED in this post who have stock a range of beauty, hair and skincare products including Alpha-H.

PRODUCTS FOR MY SKIN DURING PREGNANCY
I’m expecting our second baby and it’s only now that I’m learning there are certain types of products or ingredients pregnant women can’t use. 12 years later, but hey – maybe we’re just more informed now? Vitamin A and Salicylic Acid are some of the ingredients that pregnant women should avoid in their skincare. Glycolic Acid is totally safe to use to use for me at the moment as well as Vitamin C products. I had to be extra careful when picking out my products and already planning my post-pregnancy skincare with Alpha-H too. Read below my thoughts on each product so far.
Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask
I love a good face mask and I have a range of various ones for different skin “situations” if you like, but there’s nothing like Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask. It works instantly and gives amazing results in just 10 minutes. It contains white clay and aloe vera and these are the best ingredients in a mask to my mind. My favourite part is that it dries on my face so quickly and when taken off with a warm wet towel, my skin instantly feels more even, moisturised and smoother. This mask is now my “emergency skin” go-to and it’s ideal for any skin type.
Alpha-H Essential Cleansing Balm
Similarly to the masks, I have a few face cleansers to use some of which are bit harsh for my current skin. I wanted to try Alpha-H’s Essential Cleansing Balm as it’s gentle on the skin and focuses on replenishing on lost moisture. Winter and heating air can be so drying on our skin, so this works perfectly whilst cleansing my face from makeup and daily build-up. The cleansing balm is infused with rose and is actually gentle enough to use for my 12 year old daughter who’s starting to learn about skincare herself. A very safe product to leave in the shower and it’s perfect for daily use.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold
The award-winning Liquid Gold I’ve been meaning to try for years and one of the products I wrongly assumed wouldn’t be suitable for pregnant women. It’s totally safe to use during pregnancy as it tackles pigmentation, wrinkles, sun damage and even reduces signs of ageing. Glycolic Acid is an active toning and impurifying ingredient and it tones and smoothes skin too. It’s recommended to use every second night by applying it gently all over your face and décolletage (avoiding the eye area). I however only use it once a week at the moment and it works wonderfully. Perhaps I’ll increase the use post-pregnancy closer to summer.
Alpha-H Absolute Lip Perfector
It goes without saying that our lips need all the extra care and moisture they can get during the Winter. For me it’s all year-round and I can’t leave the house without some sort of lip balm in my handbag. Some are annoying to apply (sticky fingers aren’t fun), whereas some are a delight to use. Absolute Lip Perfector is one of those lip moisturisers I know will give my lips the instant moisture my lips need without over-doing it. Smooth conditioner that can be used as a primer without taking over everything else on my face if that makes sense. Another easy-to-use safe product for every day use I know I can trust.
And there you have it – my favouriteWinter skincare products I’m currently loving. Have you tried Alpha-H products before? If yes, what are your favourites and why? If not, now’s a great time to try and perhaps even use the 35% total discount for buying some products as gifts! I’m so going to use my own code to stock up on some.
