Today, the skincare industry offers a myriad of ingredients that promise to improve the health and appearance of your skin safely and effectively. However, it is difficult to choose between them because we all want to obtain the best benefits without compromising the health of the largest organ of our body (aka the skin).
To begin, fruit enzymes are amino acids that break down the keratin proteins found in our skin, that is, they have a powerful exfoliating action. The enzymes used in skincare are mainly found in tropical fruits such as pineapple (bromelain), papaya (papain), and kiwi (actinidin).
Here we share 5 of the greatest benefits that fruit enzymes have prepared for you and your skin:
- They allow the products you apply later to penetrate and interact more effectively. This happens because the fruit enzymes remove the skin’s keratin protein layer, which makes it easier for the rest of your facial to work.
- They are suitable for everyone, any condition, and skin color since it is a smoother and shallower descaling process than that of alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids. Enzymes take time and their results are not as impressive, but there is no risk.
- Fruit enzymes stimulate collagen production so your skin acquires a better tone, reduces hyperpigmentation, and leaves your skin brighter and smoother.
- There is no risk of over-exfoliation since the enzymes "feed" exclusively on the protein layer of the skin, once it disappears the enzymes do not consume anything else. On the contrary, the acids continue to act each time they are applied, so there is a risk of over-exfoliation and skin damage.
