The Magic of Fruit Enzymes: Unlocking Bright, Soft & Healthy Skin.
By now you are probably aware of the importance of exfoliation for a smoother and more radiant complexion, but how familiar are you with enzymatic exfoliation? And if you are familiar, perhaps you're wondering if it's right for your skin.
What are fruit enzymes and how do they work?
Fruit enzymes are found typically in tropical fruits like pineapple, papaya, guava or kiwi, and also in fruits like pumpkin. These compounds naturally break down proteins and provide a thorough exfoliation, but are gentler than rough scrubs.
The upper layer of our skin, the epidermis, is composed primarily of dry and dead skin cells which contain a protein called keratin. When fruit enzymes are applied to the skin, the keratin protein will naturally break down, removing impurities and damaged surface cells to reveal smoother skin.
Unlike acidic exfoliants (AHA's and BHA's), fruit enzymes, by their nature, only work on the surface, whereas acids will penetrate deep into the skin. For acne-prone skin or sensitive skin where AHA or BHA exfoliants may be too harsh, fruit enzyme exfoliators could be a better solution, and gentle enough to use as part of a daily skincare regimen.
The pumpkin enzyme left on for a longer period of time with a mask application really opens up the skin's pores allowing for better absorption of any skincare products applied after. Take advantage of this by applying a nutrient-rich serum (Vitamin C+ Serum) and moisturizer full of antioxidants (Skin Perfect Moisturizer) following your mask treatment, as it will penetrate the skin more effectively. Your skin will drink it in.
