Hey, lovelies! It’s Petra, founder of Pixi here 😊
Today, I'm thrilled to share with you my tips & tricks for the ultimate glowing skin—and of course a little about the star of our skincare line Glow Tonic with its main ingredient, Glycolic Acid.
From Dream to Glow-tastic Reality
When Pixi was just a seedling of an idea in my head (and heart), I envisioned a simple but powerful ethos: less-is-more makeup that elevates everyone's natural beauty, leaving you looking radiant, rested, and ready to tackle the day, every day.
We all know the better your skin, the better your mood – and the better your makeup looks!
The cornerstone of this vision? Our iconic Glow Tonic, which set the stage for Pixi's signature glow-y skin.
The Marvel of Glycolic AcidTwenty-five years ago, my skin had a romantic rendezvous with Glycolic Acid. The next morning, I woke up to skin that was anything but dull. From that day on, I was committed to bringing this miraculous ingredient into the limelight.
The Lowdown on Glycolic Acid
Small but Mighty: The petite molecular size means it can dive deep into your skin, working its magic from within.
Exfoliation Express: It dissolves the glue-like substances that trap dead skin, making way for your next-level glow.
Collagen Creator: This superstar also encourages collagen production, giving you a youthful, even texture and more even skin tone.
