Trust Pixi’s Skintreats To Transform Your Skin

Irrespective of your age or skin type, {Pixi}’s ‘skintreats’ will work wonders. Rich in glycolic acid, the collection of cleansers, toners, serums, masks and moisturisers will help to tackle almost every skin concern – from blemishes to fine lines via hyperpigmentation – there’s very little that this range can’t visibly improve.

{Pixi}’s distinctive orange toner is a must-have – bestselling (and beloved by Caroline Hirons), {Glow Tonic} is an exfoliating ‘acid’ formula – gently eliminating dulling surface ‘scurf’ to reveal a smooth, dewy complexion.

Glycolic acid is a member of the AHA family; it’s nature-derived (most commonly from sugar cane), and works by dissolving the ‘glue’ that binds dulling dead cells and residue to skin’s surface, to help restore its youthful luminosity. Cells’ renewal processes naturally slow down as we grow older – which is why a chemical exfoliant is ideal for accelerating turnover and helping to maintain a gorgeous ‘glow’.

The {Glow Peel Pads} are perfect for anyone who’s skin is looking seriously lacklustre. Infused with 20% glycolic, these not only resurface and refine skin’s texture, but also help to ‘kick-start’ sluggish skin cells – stimulating manufacture of essential collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to replenish moisture reservoirs and fortify skin’s fabric. Ideal for those whose skin is used to ‘acids’, these will quickly ‘plump up’ and diminish visibility of wrinkles and fine lines.

If your complexion is congested, {Glow Mud Cleanser} is a purifying formula – enriched with 5% glycolic and soothing aloe – to help keep pores clear and prevent accumulation of oils, make up and blackhead-causing pollutants. A gorgeous first-step cleanse, this gently melts impurities and keeps skin smooth and luminous (you may feel a slight tingle as you work it over face and neck). Remove with a damp muslin cloth – massaging in circular motions to stimulate circulation and oxygenate cells for a lit-from-within look that lasts.

And if you need a quick-fix shot of luminescence, try {Glow Mud Mask} – a fifteen-minute facial in a tube. Starring kaolin clay and sea salt to attract even stubborn, deep-rooted impurities, this will accelerate spots’ life cycles to quickly restore calm and clarity.

Rejuvenating rosemary, brightening ginseng and healing jojoba then combine to maintain moisture levels, promote a healthy glow and re-establish equilibrium – regulating oil production and reducing redness to leave skin looking enviably dewy and velvety-soft to the touch. You’ll look so radiant, you’re almost guaranteed to do a double-take each time you catch a glimpse of your reflection – you’ll positively exude light.
