You may have heard of enzyme peels – they’re a gentle alternative to rougher, more abrasive exfoliators.
Traditionally, exfoliation would take place with ground apricot kernals, sea salt, sugar or other minute but rough material. This would be blended with an emulsified mix of oil and water to soften the exfoliation process.
This is great for many skins, but if you suffer from sensitive skin, acne-prone skin or broken skin of any description, it can be sore and aggravating. So enzyme peels are a wonderful and effective alternative that can be used on any type of skin.
Enzymes (via CureJoy) penetrate the upper layers of the tissue, cleansing pores and improving skin texture, tone, and elasticity. Enzymatic peel is very gentle on your skin. It doesn’t rub your skin like mechanical exfoliation methods and doesn’t loosen dead cells from skin surface like chemical peels. It stimulates new cell growth and accelerates the natural exfoliating process. It helps your skin to get rid of dead cells, promote cell renewal, clean pores and improve its texture and elasticity by accelerating natural processes in your skin.
Enzyme face peels also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, alleviates dryness, reduces redness and toxins, increases oxygenation and prevents the formation of whiteheads and cysts.
