Enzyme exfoliation has been making waves in the world of skincare recently, and with good reason. It's a vital part of any skincare routine, as it can remove dead skin cells to improve the appearance of your skin. It can also cause uneven skin tone and texture and clog pores.
With Poet's Garden Alchemist's Exfoliating Enzyme Cleaner, you can get one step closer to the skin you've always dreamed of. That being said, before you start using this treatment, let's first discuss the basics.
What are the Key Benefits of Exfoliation?
This treatment aims to keep the skin clear by minimizing the appearance of pores. It helps fade hyperpigmentation and improve the appearance of skin tone. Speeding up skin cell turnover, it helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
What are the Types of Exfoliation?
For most people, getting rid of dead skin cells feels like they're giving their skin a fresh start. However, it's important to remember that this process should be carried out safely and thoroughly. There are two main types of exfoliation—chemical and physical.
This process involves using a scrub or brush to remove the dead skin cells manually. This method usually involves using tiny particles such as sugar and nutshells.
Although this type of exfoliation can be beneficial for people with combination or thick skin, it can leave you susceptible to skin damage or irritation.
It's natural to think twice about using chemicals on your skin, but chemical exfoliation is not a harmful procedure. It can help break the bonds between the skin cells, allowing them to be released. The two main types of chemical exfoliants are enzymes and acids.
If you're a chemical user, you're probably familiar with alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids. These two acids can penetrate the outer layers of the skin but not its deeper layers. On the other hand, aBHAs, such as salicylic acid, are oil-soluble and can reach deeper into the skin to clear dead skin cells and impurities.
Fruits and plants are known to contain enzymes, tiny molecules that break down the top layer of the skin. They can help remove dead skin cells and reveal healthier, younger-looking skin underneath. Exfoliation using fruit enzymes is gentle, as it doesn't disrupt the skin's pH level.
Pineapple and bromelain are two of the most popular skincare products that contain such enzymes. They can help remove dead skin cells and reveal healthier, younger-looking skin underneath. Papain (found in raw papaya) and bromelain have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory benefits as well.
Who Should Use Enzyme Exfoliation?
Although enzymes are commonly used for dry or sensitive skin, they can also benefit other skin types. It's important to remember that the type of exfoliation that you choose will depend on your skin's needs.
