Happy Monday, everyone! It’s a bright, shiny new week!! The best part about working weekends is that Mondays aren’t dreadful like they are for those who are off…lol!
It’s has been HOT here. It’s only June, yet it’s gotten up to 100 here in the south, and will only get hotter. Thank goodness for portable hydration on my 5-10 mile runs! Not only do we need to take care of our insides, though, but we also need to make sure to take care of our skin, especially in extreme environments.
Thankfully, Pixi’s skin rescue essentials exist! I was so excited when I got a package from Pixi Beauty with four of these: Glow Mist, Overnight Glow Serum, Jasmine Oil Blend, and Glow O2 Oxygen Mask. My skin is so thankful for Pixi!
Pixi Glow Mist has become a staple in my hot weather routine. I keep a plethora of facial mists on-hand, but this one contains propolis and argan oil, so you get an extra dose of lasting hydration. Since it only has a small amount of oil, I can spritz it on right after a run, and it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. It’s even more refreshing when kept in the refrigerator!
Overnight Glow Serum
The Overnight Glow Serum contains one of my favorite ingredients- glycolic acid. The 10% glycolic, along with arginine, works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and fade sun spots over time. Vitamins A, C, and E nourish, while cucumber and aloe vera calm the skin.
This serum actually has a gel texture, so it’s easy to dispense without running all over the place, yet goes on very easily. I use prescription tretinoin, so my skin is sensitized, and peels at times. With the soothing ingredients, I haven’t had any irritation from the glycolic acid, and the tretinoin flakes have been minimized.
Jasmine Oil Blend
Wow, despite its name, Jasmine Oil Blend is chock-full of good stuff! While it’s a blend of many different types of oils, it contains both Jasmine oil and Jasmine flower extract, and has the distinct scent of jasmine. Some of my faves in the mix are the jojoba, grape seed, rosemary, rose damascena, and of course, the jasmine.
I’ll admit I was a bit worried about the coconut oil- as I don’t usually like this for my face, considering it can be notoriously comedogenic, resulting in clogged pores and acne. After using this for nearly two weeks, though, I haven’t had any problems- just soft, hydrated skin!
Glow O2 Oxygen Mask
I’ll admit, I was skeptical at first of oxygen masks when they first started appearing on the market, as oxygen is an oxidant. Oxidants cause damage and premature aging, which is why we use antioxidant products to prevent this.
But, oxygen masks don’t actually absorb into the skin- they’re masks, meaning they sit on top of the skin. The oxygen mask starts bubbling, creating fizzy sensation, and leaves the skin with a gorgeous glow. It seems to almost “wake up” and “energize” dull skin.
The Pixi Glow O2 Oxygen Mask also contains vitamins, ginseng, antioxidants, and caffeine to replenish while probiotic lactococcus ferment lysate strengthens, and lactic acid detoxifies. So, it does more than just energize and brighten the skin! (Be sure to check out our IG to see a pic of the mask in action!)
I’ve been so pleased with these products, but that’s no surprise! With summer and hot weather here, there’s no better time to pamper yourself with the Pixi skin rescue essentials. The best part is how reasonably priced they are! Head over the PixiBeauty.com now!
