I Don’t Want No Scrubs! 3 Chemical Exfoliants You Need!

I Don’t Want No Scrubs! 3 Chemical Exfoliants You Need!

Things are heating up and it’s starting to feel like summer. The layers of clothing are coming off and we’re getting ready to lighten the make-up load and go slightly more sheer. The first step to prepare is making sure that our skin is feeling up to scratch. If grainy facial exfoliants aren’t your thing, perhaps a chemical exfoliant will be?

What Are Chemical Exfoliants?

Chemical exfoliants are basically a treatment or serum that works to break down those dead skin cells and exfoliate your skin with chemicals rather than physically with a scrub. We know that sounds kinda scary, but they are part of our daily skincare routine here at HQhair, we LOVE them. There are two types of chemical exfoliants, AHA’s and BHA’s, and both do slightly different things. To find out more about what these miracle chemicals do, take a look at our Skin Care Essentials below!

Don’t forget to make sure you’re protected from the sun though! Chemical exfoliants make your skin more sensitive to UV rays, so be sure to slap on plenty of suncream!

    Pixi Glow Tonic

    Our number one chemical exfoliant HAS to be Pixi’s Glow Tonic. This exfoliating cleanser helps to firm and tighten skin, whilst removing dead skin cells to reveal a glowing complexion. We’ve seen so many bloggers rave about it over the last year or so, and we can totally see why! We use this each evening by applying it to a cotton pad and sweeping it across our face, avoiding the eye area of course!

I’ve always loved anything artistic and creative, and experimenting with makeup is no exception! Bold and bright lip colours are my vice. When I’m not trying out new make-up products, you can usually find me scrolling through Instagram, laughing at the latest snapchat filter, or catching up with friends over a few cocktails. Long Island Iced Tea is my staple.
