When planning my wedding I was managing skin issues when my facialist that introduced me to enzymes. Ever since then, I have been in love with these little devils! " There are many types of enzymes, they have two primary uses in skin care-- for exfoliation and anti-inflammation. Certain enzymes are effective exfoliants and can be gentler than other methods like scrubs and microdermabrasion. The upper layer of your skin is mostly made of dead skin cells containing keratin protein. The enzymes work by specifically breaking down the keratin protein, resulting in smoother skin." SELF magazine I personally have used enzymes as an exfoliatiant and have in the most recent years made my own masks focusing on enzymes. Tis the season of pumpkins so I incorporated my left over pumpkin puree into my at home pumpkin mask.
