Dull, lifeless skin. Clogged pores. Fine lines. Slight sagging. All of these are issues that affect how you look. They make you look tired and add years to your appearance. While it’s true that such signs of aging are inevitable, there is something you can do to fight them. Over-the-counter creams don’t really work, and you may not wish to undergo an invasive cosmetic procedure. Fortunately, an enzyme peel may be the answer you’re looking for to fix these issues.
A Closer Look at an Enzyme Peel
You may have heard of peels before and thought they were harsh. Some chemical peels can be a bit rough on the skin, but enzyme peels are different. Enzymes are proteins that occur naturally in your body. They accelerate cell turnover by helping to remove the dead skin cells and allowing new, healthier ones to form. Enzyme peels use enzymes to exfoliate the dead skin cells by loosening and removing them. This leaves skin looking brighter. They penetrate deeply into the skin to improve its tone and texture.
Benefits of Enzyme Peels
The removal of dead skin cells gives you brighter, more radiant-looking skin. They also unclog pores and remove flakiness, leading to an overall more even skin tone. Because these enzymes stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, a firmer and tighter look can result over time, along with increased elasticity. The appearance of fine lines can also be reduced. This process is gentler than other types of chemical peels.
