So, you are thinking of changing the exfoliant that you use, you have been using a granular exfoliant but thinking of changing to an enzyme exfoliant? This is a great option for sensitive skin types as granular scrubs can lead to red, sensitised and damaged skin.
Enzyme exfoliants provide a great alternative to the granular scrubs that we are familiar with and achieve the same result! You are probably thinking, what are enzymes and how do they remove dead skin? Enzymes are bio-active ingredients often derived from fruits like pineapple and papaya. Suitable for all skin types, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and happy!
Why Should I use an enzyme exfoliant?
An enzyme exfoliation is a great way to go if you have a sensitive skin type. You won’t run the risk of over exfoliating like you can with a granular option. Enzymes digest only the dead skin cells attached to the upper layer of the skin, which means you won’t damage the healthy skin underneath. If you find granular scrubs or AHA/BHA products too harsh, an enzyme exfoliant might just be the perfect fit for you.
