Enzymes are organic substances that sustain life; proteins that act as catalysts, or accelerators, during chemical reactions happening continually throughout the body. Some reactions need to happen quickly, such as the enzymes involved in breaking down big protein or fat molecules into smaller ones during digestion. According to LiveStrong, the enzyme processes working in your skin are not quite as fast as in the gut, but they react at an impressive rate when you realize what their work encompasses. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you have 19,000,000 skin cells per square inch covering 20 square feet of skin across your body, if you are an average adult. Enzymes from natural sources, such as fruits, working with the enzymes in and on your skin, can come together in a dramatic dance to revitalize your skin and return a youthful glow and feel to your face, neck or anywhere you want to improve texture or appearance.
Thalgo Soin Fondamental de la Mer Melt-In Scrub with Marine Crystals revives the skin’s original radiance thanks to its triple exfoliation: enzymatic peel, mechanical exfoliation and in-depth-cleaning. The enzymatic peel, rich in hypoallergenic papaya extract combined with mechanical exfoliation, formulated with salt crystals and almond shell powder, helps remove dead cells as it smoothes and refines the skin texture. Biopolymer of plant origin dissolves lipids that clog pores, softens the blemishes, prepares for extraction and normalizes dry skin. The addition of Sève Bleue from the oceans drenches the epidermis in mineral-replenishing vital water and restores the barrier function of the epidermis.
For sensitive skin, leave on for 2 minutes, emulsify in warm water and then rinse 3 times. For all other skin types, apply to the entire face and neck in light circular movements for 2 to 3 minutes according to skin type, emulsify in warm water and then rinse 3 times.
