The Gentler Way
To Exfoliate

Smooth complexion - without the irritation

*Psst* There’s a new way to exfoliate and it’s gentler than ever. A huge misconception in the beauty world is that exfoliating should sting or burn in order to work and I’m here to tell you that just isn’t true. Your exfoliation step shouldn’t be irritating your skin and if it is you’re either doing it too often or it’s too harsh for your skin. Potent chemical exfoliators don’t work for everyone as they can do more harm than good for some skin types. If you’re looking for something you can use on an everyday basis then you might want to add an enzyme product to your routine. Trust us — you won’t regret it.

WHAT ARE ENZYMES?

They might sound confusing but enzymes are actually pretty common in skincare. They are proteins that boost or speed up the ability for reactions to occur. For example, our skin naturally goes through a shedding phase every 28-30 days via a process called desquamation. During this time, newer cells essentially push out and get rid of the dead dull ones at the surface. Enzymes can actually help speed up that process by breaking down and sloughing away those dead cells at a faster rate. No need to wait 30 days as they help to refresh and revitalize your complexion with routine use. The best part — they’re extremely gentle while remaining incredibly effective.

ARE THEY BETTER THAN CHEMICAL EXFOLIATORS?

It depends on your skin type! While enzymes can help to get rid of dead skin cells, they will not have the same effectiveness as traditional chemical exfoliators. But, if you suffer from sensitive skin or you’re looking for a product to maintain your smooth skin in between exfoliating sessions, enzymes are the gentlest way to go. Because of their calming effect, they smooth and refresh the skin without causing any redness, inflammation, or irritation that is associated with acids. Plus, they won’t disturb your moisture barrier leaving your skin as healthy and as strong as it can be.

💛 WHERE TO FIND THEM?

Take a look at your fruit basket! If you’ve ever enthusiastically chomped away at some pineapple and became a little overzealous that tingling on your tongue is from the bromelain enzymes that are naturally found in the tropical fruit. But, it doesn’t stop there as other fruits like papaya, mango, kiwi, and even veggies like asparagus contain enzymes.

Our favorite one is the Tomato. This fruit-veggie hybrid contains softening enzymes that play a role in ripening it overtime. This same concept can be applied to the skin. When using products with Tomato those enzymes gently exfoliate working to boost cell turnover and reveal brighter, more luminous skin. Not to mention, Tomatoes are also rich in lycopene a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and premature aging by helping to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

You can find it in the appropriately named BYROE Tomato Serum. This triple threat brightens, hydrates, and exfoliates the skin with absolutely no irritation. Resurfacing tomato extract, pure ascorbic acid (aka vitamin C), and cell-communicating peptides work in tandem to maintain your glossy, youthful skin. We’re in love with its ability to smooth and hydrate almost instantly leaving your skin with a healthy, glowing finish that will have everyone asking you about your skincare routine. No need to thank us!

LONG STORY SHORT

If you’ve shied away from exfoliation altogether because acids and physical exfoliators are just too harsh — time to try an enzyme! You’ll be impressed by their ability to soften and smooth without redness or irritation. So, sensitive skin folks, this one’s for you!
