Posted by 01.12.17

When it comes to exfoliation, chemical (i.e. hydroxy acids) and physical (scrubs, cleansing brushes, etc.) methods get most of the attention. But there’s a third option—enzyme-based exfoliation—that has a slew of advantages over its skin-smoothing siblings. According to dermatologist Dr. Jessie Cheung of Willowbrook, Illinois, “Enzymes work by accelerating the chemical reactions necessary to renew the skin. Often derived from papaya, pumpkin or pineapples, they target the keratin protein in the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresh, glowing skin.”

Found in just about every type of product, ranging from cleansers and moisturizers to masks and peels, it’s easy to add an e

INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: RESVERATROL

An extremely potent antioxidant derived from grapes, blueberries and even cocoa, resveratrol was catapulted into the spotlight in 2006 when a National Institutes of Health study found that it improved the health of overweight aged mice. Further research concluded that resveratrol can extend the lifespan of fish, flies and worms, and this unique quality immediately caught the attention of skincare scientists who have since started incorporating it into creams and serums in the hopes that it has an anti-aging effect on the skin as well.

I don’t think I act or look like a 30 year old anymore and I admit that I’m more than okay with that. In fact, I prefer this more confident, grown up version of myself who has strong beliefs about my likes and dislikes and doesn’t feel the need to follow every beauty and fashion trend.
