How to: Use enzyme peeling correctly
Exfoliating is the best way to remove dead skin cells from the skin. This allows it to regenerate better and the pores are unclogged. The skin looks fresh and clean again. The problem with mechanical peeling, however, is that the fine abrasive particles are irritating, which is an unnecessary burden, especially for sensitive skin. It's good that there are enzyme peels.
What is an enzyme peeling and what can it do?
An enzyme peel is a chemical peel. This may sound daunting at first, but it has many benefits for your skin. Because of their special composition, enzyme peels are suitable for all skin types. Since it stimulates cell renewal and blood circulation, it is the ideal anti-aging active ingredient. The natural enzymes loosen the calluses of the upper layer of skin, clear clogged pores and thereby help impure and oily skin to have a pure and clear complexion. However, be careful with acute inflammation, as it is better to avoid enzyme peeling. And since enzyme peels, unlike their mechanical counterparts, do not contain any abrasive particles, they can also be easily used on dry and sensitive skin.
This is how you use an enzyme peeling
Enzyme peels come in different variations; they are available as powders to mix, creams or serums. Accordingly, they differ in their application: some are used on damp skin, others on dry skin.
