Enzyme masks are a gentle and safe way to achieve glowing skin.
Featuring an organic blend of fruit enzymes and all natural compounds, enzyme masks are much gentler on your skin than other exfoliating treatments such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing. Enzyme masks use nature-derived fruit enzymes to break down dead skin cells without eradicating any living cells on your complexion in the process.
What Does An Enzyme Mask Do?
The skin comprises of 3 layers:
Epidermis: Also known as the Stratum Corneum, epidermis is the outermost layer of your skin that contains squamous cells which are continually shed to reveal brighter and smoother complexion.
Dermis: Dermis lies underneath the epidermis and it consists of connective tissues, sweat glands and hair follicles.
Hypodermis: Hypodermis can be found deeper within your skin and it consists of fat and connective tissues.
Enzyme masks use fruit enzymes commonly derived from grapefruit, pineapple, pomegranate, papaya, and pumpkin to loosen and slough off dead skin cells on the epidermis layer. This shedding of skin cells to prevent an excess build-up is important for your skin’s health and helps to keep dull skin at bay.
"These proteolytic enzymes help to break down proteins - including keratin proteins in the outer layer of the skin. This helps dead skin cells slough off, leaving the skin smoother and softer, with decreased discolorations,” says dermatologist Dr Hadley King.
Benefits Of Using An Enzyme Mask
Gentle Exfoliator For Sensitive Skin: Women with sensitive skin may struggle to find a non-irritating exfoliator that removes dead skin cells and unclog pores without being overly harsh on their skin. Enzyme masks are perfect for sensitive skin as it is significantly less harsh than chemical or physical exfoliants while delivering similar glow-boosting benefits. Their fruit-derived enzymes penetrate your skin to loosen up skin cells without the harmful side-effects of chemical-packed beauty products.
Achieve Youthful Radiance: Enzyme masks are great additions to your anti-aging skincare regimen. Full of beneficial antioxidants and nutrients, enzyme masks fight free radicals to prevent premature aging, fine lines and wrinkles while its anti-inflammatory properties help your skin heal which reduces the likelihood of pigmentation and scar formation. In addition, our Organic Anti-Aging Enzyme Mask boosts collagen production to visibly plump up and smoothen crevices.
Enhance Your Natural Skin Texture: Reveal bright glowing skin with regular use of enzyme masks which increase skin cell turnover rate to improve uneven skin texture over time. An increased cellular turnover rate also helps to remove dark pigments that are found trapped in your skin cells to fade skin discoloration.
Minimize Blemishes & Blackheads: Regular use of an effective exfoliator like an enzyme mask helps to decongest pores which prevents the development of blemishes and blackheads. Trapped sebum and excess oil on your skin are the main culprits for many skin issues so taking them out of the equation will help you achieve enviable skin clarity.
Safe For Pregnant & Breast-Feeding Women: Enzyme masks are natural alternatives to chemically packed exfoliators. They contain skin-loving organic compounds that when absorbed by your skin does not cause harm to women who are pregnant or breast-feeding.
How To Incorporate An Enzyme Mask Into Your Skincare Routine
When introducing a new skincare product into your beauty ritual, always err on the side of caution by doing a patch test. If you do not see an adverse reaction, slowly increase the frequency of usage from 1-2 times a week to 2-3 times a week to build up your skin’s tolerance.
Apply a generous amount of our Organic Anti-Aging Enzyme Mask onto your face and neck and let the product sit for 5-10 minutes. You may leave it on for longer if you are using it as an in-cabin treatment. Rinse off with lukewarm water before applying a moisturizer.
