Enzyme scrub – how it works & why its also suitable for sensitive skin
A radiant complexion is the dream of many people, and the right skin care is the key. One method that is gaining more and more importance in this context is enzyme scrub. In this article, we will look at the topic in detail and take a closer look at the benefits of enzyme scrub and its application.
What is an enzyme scrub, how does it work and how does it differentiate from other srubs?
First, let's take a general look at enzymes. Enzymes are proteins that speed up chemical reactions in the body, such as digesting food or repairing damaged tissue. So, they're kind of "special tools" in our bodies that help keep everything running smoothly.
Enzymes also play a significant role in the health of our skin - because natural enzymes included in an enzyme scrub break down the bonds between dead skin cells and the top layer of skin. This gently removes the top layer of skin, revealing the fresh skin underneath. This process improves and refines skin texture and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation spots as well as acne scars.
Thus, an enzyme scrub is an innovative method for gentle skin renewal. Unlike mechanical scrubs which use abrasive particles, or chemical acid peels including AHA and BHA acids to remove dead skin cells, an enzyme scrub is based on natural enzymes. These enzymes often come from fruits such as papaya or pineapple and specialize in gently dissolving dead skin cells without irritating the skin.
The advantages of an enzyme scrub
Our VINOBLE COSMETICS enzyme scrub simply frees the skin from flaky skin thanks to papaya extract (papain). In combination with grape seed extract (OPC) and vitamin B you achieve a revitalized skin as it is optimally moisturized and also protected from harmful environmental influences as well as free radicals.
- Gentle exfoliation: Compared to mechanical scrubs, enzyme scrubs are gentler on the skin and cause less irritation.
- Suitable for all skin types: Enzyme scrubs are also excellent for sensitive skin as they are less aggressive than some chemical peels. The natural enzymes provide gentle exfoliation without stressing the skin.
- Improves skin texture: Regular use can improve skin texture, making it smoother and more even.
- Brightens complexion: Enzyme scrubs can brighten the complexion and bring back a fresh glow.
- Refines pores: They can refine pores and reduce the appearance of blackheads and blemishes.
How often and in what form should you use an enzyme scrub?
The frequency of application depends on your skin type and your skin needs and should therefore be explored individually. Basically, we recommend using our enzyme scrub twice a week. It is applied to cleansed skin and rinsed off with lukewarm water after an application time of five to ten minutes.
The perfect care ritual
Using an enzyme scrub in combination with a face mask can further enhance the effects of radiant skin. Our pro youth lifting mask is the perfect complement in this regard.
While the enzyme scrub makes the skin more receptive to subsequent active ingredients in addition to gently renewing the skin, the pro youth lifting mask tightens and firms your skin and provides it with valuable nutrients. Our mask is made of delicate, flexible fabric, impregnated in a highly concentrated, deep cleansing cocktail of hyaluronic acid, plant stem cells, vitamin E and oatmeal extract. Fine lines are thus plumped out from the inside - the skin immediately appears smoother and tighter and gains a fresh, youthful appearance.
