Regardless of whether your skincare routine is two steps long or 10 steps long, more often than not, the most forgotten process seems to be scrubbing. That’s right, scrubbing is actually seen as an integral part of any skincare regimen, which is where enzymatic and brightening masks come into play.
If you keep up with skincare (to some extent) you’ve likely heard of an enzymatic peel. Enzymatic peels are made up of fruit enzymes and have many of the same benefits as its sister, the chemical peel. Taken from fruits like papaya, grapefruit, pomegranate and pumpkins, the enzymes in the peel work to seep into your pores and naturally resurface your skin.
While it is possible to achieve a bright complexion, some of us take a little boost to get there. Performing an enzyme peel is a popular way to exfoliate the skin, leaving behind a younger, glowy look to skin. In comparison to a chemical peel, they’re known to be less harsh, offering no discomfort and working well on individuals with sensitive skin. One of the best parts of enzymatic peels is that because they don’t have harsh side effects, they require no downtime. That means that they can be easily incorporated into a holistic skincare regimen.
After the enzymatic peel is applied, it begins to work right away. Once it’s been removed, you should see results immediately. Because of the natural ingredients and fruit juices in the peel, you likely won’t notice any inflammation, redness or dryness of the skin, however, this does depend on the level of sensitivity. The peels help in removing dead skin cells, drastically improving tone and texture, and unclogging pores.
Our Alumier Enzymatic Peel works wonders when it comes to exfoliating and balancing the skin. Combining 10 percent lactic acid with fruit enzymes promotes skin renewal, while the aloe vera calms the skin.
If you’re still not sure about enzymatic peels, brightening masks are similar enough that you can opt for one of those! Packed with antioxidants, they too work the same way in terms of hydration and nourishment. So, if you’d prefer to use a brightening mask to even out your skin tone and fight signs of aging, you can definitely do so! But if you ask us, we think you should give both a shot and see what you prefer! We’re almost positive you’ll end up loving both!
