Enzymes are used in skincare as a way to gently exfoliate & soften the skin. Regular exfoliation is important because it decreases the likelihood of clogged pores and it also leaves the skin radiant & hydrated.
The surface layer of the skin is comprised of dead skin cells and these cells are made of keratin protein. Enzymes work by dissolving this protein layer away revealing a beautiful gleaux!
In skincare, commonly used enzyme products contain fruit derivatives, such as papaya, blueberry or pineapple.
Enzyme masking is a favorite of mine. When my skin is dull, I simply apply a mask and in a few short minutes, my skin is so gleauxy!
