All the skincare lovers out there this one's for you!
If you haven’t heard of Pixi’s Glow Tonic by now you’ve surely been living under a rock! This skincare product is a cult favourite amongst beauty lovers around the world, transforming skin to reveal a clearer complexion.
What is Pixi Glow Tonic?
Pixi Glow Tonic is essentially a high performing toner - a product that is often the subject of scepticism in the classic 3-step beauty regime, cleanse, tone & moisturise.
However, you’d have a hard time arguing against the benefits of including this product in your skincare routine.
What’s So Special About It?
Whilst it’s true that you’d use this post-cleanse & pre-moisturiser, this toner offers more than just ‘skin balancing’, also acting as an exfoliant - a chemical one to be exact!
Sounds crazy, right?…
Our minds were blown too! Top notch skincare science has been infused into the formula which has given it its magical properties. It’s like you can FEEL the toner waving it’s magic wand on your skin.
What is Glycolic Acid?
One of the main reasons why Pixi Glow Tonic is so effective is because of Glycolic Acid.
If you’ve never heard of this ingredient before then this is what harnesses the exfoliating properties.
Glycolic Acid is what’s known as an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) - a highly coveted ingredient that can be found in many science-savvy skincare regimes.
AHA’s work by dissolving sebum and sloughing away all those stubborn dead skin cells. The result is a super smooth and fresh complexion, yes please...
We know what you're thinking...
“Sounds great, but a little harsh for the skin, right?”
Wrong. Whilst it’s true that pure Glycolic would be too much for our precious skin to handle, Glycolic Acid based products contain a smaller concentration.
Pixi Glow Tonic contains 5% Glycolic Acid - a perfectly safe amount for the skin to tolerate whilst also delivering on its promises!
A Product That Keeps on Giving...
Glycolic aside, Pixi Glow Tonic is formulated with a whole host of other skin boosting ingredients…
Renowned for its soothing abilities, Aloe Vera perfectly complements the Glycolic Acid. It soothes inflammation as well as offering the skin vital hydration - a necessity for maintaining a youthful glow.
Packed full of anti-aging phytonutrients, Ginseng revitalises the skin. By improving circulation, Ginseng leaves your skin looking and feeling energized for a bright, well-rested appearance.
A plant-derived, acne saviour, Witch Hazel is a highly-prized ingredient when it comes to keeping breakouts at bay. By removing excess oils and pore-clogging bacteria, you’re skin will be left happier and healthier.
Horse Chestnut Seed Extract
A powerful anti-aging ingredient, Horse Chestnut Seed Extract protects the hyaluronic acid in your skin by preventing its breakdown.
How To Use Pixi Glow Tonic...
Now you’re educated on the skin transforming capabilities of Pixi’s Glow Tonic it’s time to start incorporating it into your skincare routine.
Here are some key tips for making Glow Tonic work as effectively as possible :
At 5% glycolic acid, the strength isn’t going to damage your skin. However, many people have not used AHA’s before so it’s important to give your skin time to adjust. Start by using every 2-3 days and then shorten the time between uses as you feel necessary.
The best way to use Pixi Glow Tonic is to soak a cotton round with it and then gently wipe this over your face, taking care to avoid your eye area.
After using Glow Tonic your skin will be in a sensitive state and more susceptible to damage from free radicals. Therefore you should ALWAYS use an SPF before heading outside. Yep, even in winter!
