Application of enzyme peel Apply a small quantity of the peel to the cleansed face except for the region around the eyes; massage for 1-2 minutes, then wash off thoroughly with cool water. It is not recommended to sunbathe or use other exfoliants after the peel.
The difference between a scrub and a peel lies in the nature of the effect. A scrub involves mechanical skin cleansing — it removes dead cells with the help of abrasive particles. The word “abrasive” originates from the Latin word “abrasio” and means “stripping, scratching.” This procedure is quite traumatizing for the skin. Peels remove dead cells by dissolving them — without damaging the skin. Dissolution is caused by acids.
An enzyme peel is a beauty product that is used to deeply cleanse and resurface the skin on the face by treating the upper layers of skin tissue. This product is called a peel because it literally helps to peel dead skin cells off of the skin. By removing dead skin cells, the face is left clearer with a more even tone and texture.
