If you like to exfoliate your skin, then a natural enzyme exfoliator like our Nakin Exfoliating Radiance Tonic is a brilliant choice. Natural enzyme exfoliators are great for skin as they have excellent anti-ageing properties, and we love that these powers come from the plants used in the formula.
There are many reasons why natural enzyme exfoliators are so great. First, they are gentle and non-abrasive, making them ideal for all skin types, which includes for people with sensitive skin. Second, they are highly effective at removing dead skin cells and other impurities from the skin, leaving it looking and feeling softer and smoother. Third, they are one of the best natural ways to help to improve an uneven skin tone and pigmentation. Fourth, they exfoliate without stripping skin and even offer hydration. Fifth, they are incredibly anti-ageing and can help to promote collagen production.
Natural enzyme exfoliators like our Nakin Exfoliating Radiance Tonic use Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) derived from fruits. Fruit AHAs are naturally occurring acids that work to exfoliate the face. They work by breaking down the bonds between dead skin cells, which allows the cells to be sloughed off more easily. This process reveals brighter, younger-looking skin underneath.
Natural fruit alpha hydroxy acids work by exfoliating the top layer of the skin. This exposes the new, younger skin underneath and gives us a brighter complexion. Alpha hydroxy acids are also known to stimulate collagen production, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
There are a variety of fruit acids that can be used for skin care, but the most popular ones are from sugar cane, lactic acid and citric acid from fruits. Fruit AHAs are a great choice for those with sensitive skin, or if you are new to using acids on your face. Most skin types can use them but if you are not used to a natural enzyme exfoliator then it is a good idea to introduce it into your routine gradually, and with our Exfoliating Radiance Tonic it can then be used daily at night. Any exfoliation leaves skin more susceptible to damage from the sun and so using an SPF is always recommended in the daytime.
One of the interesting things about most natural AHA exfoliators is that they are in a liquid form. Our one is a tonic which makes it super easy to use and apply, without the mess and irritation of grain exfoliators from the past.
To use fruit acids on your skin, start by cleansing as normal with our natural anti-ageing cleansing milk or rejuvenating face wash. Once your face is clean then apply our Exfoliating Radiance Tonic to your face and neck using a cotton pad.
We hope that you enjoyed our feature explaining why natural enzyme exfoliators are so great. A good one like ours really is an exceptional product. If you have sensitive skin, it is important to start slowly with fruit acids. Use them once a week at first, then increase the frequency to nightly as your skin gets used to the treatment. You should also use a sunscreen in the day after using an exfoliator, and an SPF is always recommended every day regardless of exfoliating.
If you are looking for a gentle, non-abrasive way to exfoliate your skin, then natural enzyme exfoliators are a great option. Ours can be found with the rest of the Nakin Face Products and you can learn out more about us online at www.nakinskincare.com
