Enzymes are chemicals that hasten the rate of chemical reactions without being consumed in the reaction themselves. They are present in whole foods that have not been processed in any way. They aid digestion without much effort.
In the beauty industry, fruit enzymes serve two primary uses, especially in skincare. They are exfoliation and anti-inflammation. They both work to break down keratin protein from dead skin cells which make up the upper layer of the skin. When enzymes break down keratin protein, the result is a smoother skin.
Having studied the powerful nature of fruit enzymes, scientists advise that we consume a lot of fruits for healthier skin. The reason is, fruit enzymes that pass through our gut are equally as effective as the ones applied topically.
In tandem with your skin cells, enzymes work to revitalize the skin and restore its youthful glow.
What other benefits do fruit enzymes have on your skin? Here goes:
- A smoother skin
- No blackheads
- Skin irritations disappear
