Enzymes in skincare products are natures exfoliating superhero’s.
Facial scrubs are not the only ways to exfoliate. Enzymes are a natural alternative to exfoliating. They work by creating a chemical reaction on the skin to dissolve dry hardened skin cells and encourage the growth of new healthy cells to take their place on the surface of the skin.
Essentially enzymes enhance skin cell turn over which leave the skin appearing smooth, more radiant and help to even skin tones.
Enzymes are naturally derived from fruit such as pineapple, papayra and passion fruit.
Bromelain: Found in pineapple juice as well as the pineapple stem
Actinidin: Exists in kiwi, pineapple, mange, banana, and papaya
Papain: Found in papaya
Introducing enzymes into your skincare routine is a great idea for those who suffer with sensitive skin as they offer a gentle exfoliation alternative to a scrub. They are perfect for those who suffer from inflamed, high coloring, pigmentation and acne prone skin. Rosecea is a complex skin concern and in some cases abrasion free exfoliation is key to effective exfoliation and managing this problem.
At SKINICIAN within our Advanced System we have two enzyme products available for consumers to use at home.
This is an advanced foaming facial wash, designed to thoroughly cleanse the skin and remove impurities. This product doubles as an exfoliant, combing a powerful blend of natural fruit AHA’s - Passion Fruit, Grape and Pineapple to aid the removal of dead skin cells, while Prickly Pear stimulates the skins natural renewal process-reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This is a powerful at home peel. The peel contains a blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids and fruit enzymes that work together to remove dry, dull cells from the skin’s surface, promoting skin renewal and skin brightening, resulting in a more youthful and even complexion.
When using our Enzyme Peel we recommend double cleansing the skin, applying the peel as you would a mask, rinse and follow with a mask or serum depending on your preference.
