A touch of glow with Pixi’s Best of Bright
We talk a lot about the skin at the moment, in these cold weather, it is true that it is difficult to keep a fresh and bright complexion.
The winter season often leaves the skin dry and the complexion dull, but I am going to deliver you my little discovery of this beginning of the year which helps me to keep a healthy look.
First of all, let me introduce myself, my name is Janudi, I am 19 years old, I am a student in 2nd year of Business school and I am fascinated by fashion an beauty. This year, our school asked us to do an internship in a start-up and it seemed obvious for me to do it in an universe that fascinates me. It is through my researches that I came across MakeMyBeauty and I spontaneously sent my request.
Thus here I am at MakeMyBeauty since the beginning of January and I am delighted to be able to work with Nelly and Alexandra, two Women (with a big W!) talented who inspire me a lot.
I think that you know them well enough, but their talent and their motivation in their daily life impress me every day.
I am very happy to be able to share this experience with them in this absolutely magic surrounding, that they have created, which is MakeMyBeauty.
Let's get back to the skin.
I am mixed skin thus I know the "grey complexion" of the winter … When pimples and hyperpigmentation get involved in that, it is driving nuts.
I am not the kind to to use 10 000 products on my skin, I think that having a good diet, drinking a lot of water (I know it is hard) and keeping a good cleansing and moisturizing routine is the perfect combo for a radiant skin.
But sometimes, we need a little bit of help, and for me it is the Best of Bright de Pixi.
Pixi is a brand that was created in London by Petra Strand, a make-up artist, a skincare enthusiast, she creates products for a clean and brilliant complexion.
Like the MMB, she thinks that any beautiful make-up begin with a beautiful skin.
Her products are made with natural raw materials, moreover the plant extracts mark the signature of her range.
I use them once a week when I feel that my skin needs shot of boost, when coming out of the shower while my pores are dilated, it is the ideal moment to cleanse in depth.
Here is my routine in 3 steps:
It is the simplest step, but by far the most important, it allows to prepare the skin to receive the effectiveness of the mask.
Products are less effective on a skin loaded with sebum, make-up and pollution, than on a perfectly clean skin.
It cleans, exfoliates smoothly besides perfecting the make-up removal, it leaves the skin fresh and perfectly clean.
It allows to exfoliate and to illuminate the skin by applying a cotton soaked with lotion on the whole face, on the neck and on the cleavage by avoiding the eye contour.
Its extracts of plants have brilliant benefits:
- The aloe vera has healing properties, ideal to heal the pimples and to calm the itches.
- The ginseng is rich in vitamins B and C, it stimulates the cells of the skin and brings luminosity while toning up immediately the face.
The mud is known for its clarifying properties, it helps in particular to regulate the excess sebum of many oily, mixed and\or acned skin.
I let it set for about 10 minutes during whom I have a sensation of very pleasant tingles on the skin.
I remove it with a hot towel then I rinse my face with some fresh water. We feel that the skin is bouncy, very bright and glowy, as if we just had applied moisturizer. There's no sensation of drought or tightnesses.
I deeply advise you this Glow range which is available at Sephora in small format, ideal to test out !
