Why You Should Use Enzymes Instead of Acids to Exfoliate Your Skin


Exfoliation of skin is the process where you remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This is an important process in skin care as cell regeneration becomes slower as we age. Without exfoliation, it can result in dry, flaky patches or even clogged pores. Exfoliation not only removes  dead skin cells, but it can also assist in acne prevention and evens skin tone complexion.

The most common types of exfoliations would be physical and chemical exfoliation. The most common chemical exfoliator that comes into everyone’s mind is acid exfoliator. This includes both the AHA (Alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA (Beta hydroxy acids) such as lactic acid and salicylic acid. The acid penetrates deep into your skin and accelerates the turnover for skin cells and allow new skin cells to generate. However, one major concern of acid exfoliator is that it is quite harsh and hence unsuitable for people with sensitive skin.

Introducing enzyme exfoliant, which is made of enzymes that are derived from fruits such as papaya or mango. What makes enzyme exfoliant different from acid exfoliant is that it exfoliates the skin much gentler as compared to chemical exfoliant.

Enzyme exfoliants contains proteolytic enzymes where it breaks down proteins that binds the rough and dull layer of your skin. It is much gentler on your skin, making it possible for people with sensitive skin to do facial exfoliation as well.  It can also reduce the risk of over-exfoliation that leads to irritated skin, redness on your skin or even inflamed skin.

The benefits of enzyme exfoliant does not stop here. Enzymes also contain anti-inflammatory properties. This makes enzyme exfoliant great for those with sensitive skin as it helps to soothe irritation.
