What are (fruit) enzymes?
Enzymes are present in all whole foods that hadn’t been thermally or in any way processed (hint: fruits and veggies).
They are essential to good digestive health because they make a reaction that usually requires dangerously-high temperatures to occur at normal body temperatures.
This means they help your stomach digest food without much effort. In the food industry, enzymes are used to help ripen fruits, tenderize meats and produce things like wine and cheese.
So far scientists have been studying fruit enzymes as to what they do to our skin from within, hence the advice to consume plenty of fruit for healthier skin.
Discoveries are being made that enzymes work their way into the skin cells by being applied topically. Namely, it is confirmed that the enzyme processes working in your skin are not quite as fast as in the gut, but they react at an impressive rate when you realize what their work encompasses.
Working on your skin, together with your skin cells, their role in skincare is all about exfoliation: “Fruit enzymes nibble away at and dissolve superficial dead skin cells. This can result in a smoother and brighter complexion.” Enzymes revitalize your skin and return a youthful glow and feel to your face, neck or anywhere you want to improve texture or appearance.
Benefits of applying fruit enzymes topically include:
- Brighter skin complexion
