Exclusive Tips and Tricks from Pixi Beauty Founder and Makeup Artist, Petra

Welcome to the world of Pixi Beauty, where our mission is to help you achieve a naturally radiant and flawless complexion. As the founder and makeup artist behind Pixi, I am thrilled to share my personal insights on how to maximise the benefits of two powerhouse skincare ingredients, Glycolic and Retinol, by rotating them in your routine. In this blog post, I will unveil my secret Skin-Cycling Methods that will transform your skin while keeping it balanced and nourished. Let's dive into the magic of Skin-Cycling!

Understanding Glycolic and Retinol:

Before we delve into the Skin-Cycling Methods, it's essential to understand how these powerful ingredients work.

Glycolic Acid: This alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) is derived from sugar cane and gently exfoliates the skin, improving its surface texture and promoting a brighter complexion.

Retinol: Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, works on a deeper level to refine the skin's texture and smooth out fine lines and uneven skintexture.

Skin-Cycling Method 1: Day and Night Rotation

The first Skin-Cycling Method involves using Glycolic and Retinol at different times of the day. This approach ensures that your skin benefits from both ingredients as fast as possible, and you will see rapid results from this transforming routine.

 AM Routine:

 Begin your day with our Glow Mud Cleanser or Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel. These products gently exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin, leaving it fresh and revitalised.

PM Routine:

In the evening, switch to the Retinol CapsuleCare. This potent treatment penetrates deeper into the skin to improve its texture and minimise the appearance of fine lines and pores.

Skin-Cycling Method 2: Alternate Nights

The second Skin-Cycling Method involves alternating between Glycolic and Retinol treatments on different nights of the week.

For revitalised and smooth skin, try using Glow Tonic on one night and Retinol Tonic on the next. This rotation allows your skin to enjoy the benefits of both ingredients without overdoing it.
