What Does An Enzyme Mask Do?

JUARA Skincare -

Enzyme MaskYou may be someone who tends to keep it simple when it comes to a beauty routine. You might use a simplistic cleanser, daily moisturizer, and a minimal amount of makeup.

Key Takeaways

  • An enzyme mask uses natural enzymes to exfoliate the skin.
  • An enzyme mask can be skin-brightening, pore-reducing, and skin-smoothing.
  • An enzyme mask is gentler than chemical exfoliators.
  • Naturally derived fruit enzymes ensure that the skin's natural oils are not stripped away.
  • To apply an enzyme mask, apply a thin layer to clean the skin.
  • Gently massage in a circular motion with wet fingertips to polish the skin.
  • Rinse to reveal a younger complexion and more radiant-looking skin.

But when you notice the texture of your complexion becoming slightly rough or just looking dull, it's likely the fault of impurities collecting at the surface. While the skin renewal or turnover cycle is normal and natural, it sometimes requires a little nudge when it comes to sloughing off some of that staleness.

So, what exactly does an enzyme mask do?

Like its cousin, the chemical peel, an enzyme peel also exfoliates the skin to leave behind a layer of softer, more supple skin. Enzyme peels tend to be more gentle than chemical peels, so they may be more suitable for sensitive skin.

There's a wide variety of fruit-based exfoliating options out there. You'll find everything from a pumpkin enzyme mask to a papaya fruit facial treatment. Enzyme peels and masks are like a tropical party for your face and can cure anything from excessive dryness to blackheads.

Defeating dead skin cells and oily skin with enzyme peels

Skin products generally source enzymes from fruits and vegetables. That's why you can get a pumpkin enzyme mask even when it's not the middle of autumn!

Whether it's an enzyme peel, enzyme mask, or other enzyme treatment, the natural ingredients work in the same way. The enzymes in fruit extracts are called proteolytic enzymes and their purpose in these recipes is to break down proteins.

In the uppermost layer of our skin, the keratin protein bonds dead cells together. Fruit enzymes break down the keratin, so the dead skin can slough off more readily to reveal a fresher layer of skin. This helps to smooth skin texture, clean pores, and erase wrinkles and fine lines.

The difference between an enzyme peel and a chemical peel

These enzymes aren’t necessarily better or more healthy than acids. However, certain skin types and skin issues respond better to enzymes than their chemical counterpart. That's because many enzyme-based skin products contain more antioxidants and nutrients that are essential for glowing, healthy skin.

Enzymes provide a more gentle exfoliation experience than chemical peels that can be more aggressive. Because chemical treatments are more potent, this increases the chance of potential skin irritation.

A chemical peel can break down oils and other skin congestion more thoroughly, whereas an enzyme peel exfoliates the skin without stripping away the natural oils. And this is essential for those with sensitive skin types! An enzyme peel or mask helps your skin retain moisture and is more soothing to dry or sensitive skin.

The biggest difference between a peel with enzymes and a peel with harsh chemicals has to do with the effects on sensitive skin. Enzyme masks help to mattify oily skin texture, erase blemishes, and calm redness or irritation.

All of JUARA's products are inspired by the Indonesian beauty and wellness tradition of Jamu.

A Jamu lifestyle recognizes the importance of feeling good on the inside while also radiating that confidence and warmth in what we share with the outside world. Taking the time to give yourself a beauty treatment is part of a continual feedback loop of love - both for yourself and those around you.

As mentioned above, there are natural ingredients with exfoliating abilities like papaya and pineapple. In this enzyme face mask, the apple enzymes brighten the skin while physical exfoliants like bamboo beads and jojoba esters leave your skin feeling smooth and cleansed.

The gentle exfoliation will reveal new baby-soft skin and your newfound complexion and skin tone will glow.

However, exfoliation is only part of the story. This mask offers more than your average enzyme peel. It cleanses pores, polishes the skin, and brightens your skin tone. Your pore size will be noticeably diminished and your skin elasticity will get a youthful boost.
