Do you want brighter and smoother looking skin, but acids are too irritating for you? It's time to meet your skin's new best friend, natural fruit enzymes! In this blog, our team of skin experts breakdown what natural fruit enzymes are, what they do, and why we love them!
What Are Fruit Enzymes?
Enzymes are an effective, non-abrasive skin exfoliant sourced from fruits and vegetables such as papaya, pineapple, and pumpkin. A common enzyme used in skincare is known as the proteolytic enzyme. When applied to the skin, enzymes quickly break down the keratin protein, which is a bond that keeps dead skin cells together on the skin's surface. Enzymes are a milder alternative to other chemical exfoliants, especially since they are extracted from fruits and vegetables. The natural components in enzymes accelerate the chemical reactions needed to remove old, dead skin and promote younger looking and softer feeling skin. If acids are too strong for your skin, enzymes are a great alternative - immediately leaving you with glowing skin.
Why We Love Enzymes
Enzymes are gentle and incredibly effective in removing the external buildup of dead skin cells. Supple, glowing skin is immediately visible and there is no downtime when using enzymes in skincare or an enzyme peel. Just remember to use SPF 30 or above, especially when using chemical exfoliants. Exfoliated skin allows for better product utilization, which means you will get more out of your serums, masks, and creams. Another benefit of exfoliated skin is makeup application goes on like a dream. If your skin is breaking out and congested, an enzyme peel may help! You can achieve a dramatically improved skin look and feel with the consistent use of enzymes.
When to Use Enzymes
Like all skincare products, enzymes should be used once or twice a week until your skin is ready to increase usage slowly. It's important to slowly introduce your skin to new chemical exfoliators. Our private label #NoFilter Active Enzyme product bundle is gentle enough for daily use. If you are looking for an exfoliant that can restore a feeling and look of youthfulness, radiance, and elasticity to the skin by eating away at external dead skin cells, enzymes are highly recommended.
