Why is my favourite product the Janesce Gentle Enzyme Peel?
It’s a gentle peel created from 18 organic plant extracts for improving skin texture.
Not only can it be used on almost any skin type, it is so gentle and very easy to use. There is no mess and no awful bits of grit or granules that can get left on the skin, unlike so many other exfoliants (and don’t get me started on how abrasive and rough some of them can be!)
It’s important not to over exfoliate the skin as your skin has a natural barrier that protects it and helps it retain moisture. Scrubbing the skin too hard or using exfoliating products too often, can damage the most outer layer of skin. The main sign of over exfoliating your skin, is skin hypersensitivity; this appears as redness, dryness, tightness, sensitivities or problematic skin. Just like over cleansing, avoid exfoliating too much and too often (this goes for all over your body!). Over doing it will strip your skin of it’s natural oils and cause even more problems!
Janesce exfoliants use active plant-based ingredients to naturally refine skin. Many exfoliants include harsh chemicals or rough substances to remove dead skin cells. While they might leave your skin feeling clean and clear in the short-term, they can do real damage to the skin’s protective skin barrier – potentially setting up inflammation and prematurely ageing the skin. Janesce exfoliants are different. They remove dead skin cells and renew skin with fruit enzymes and plant ingredients, without disrupting the skin’s natural protection.
If you are exfoliating too often, the time to stop was yesterday! Avoid any exfoliants until you’ve come in for a consultation with one of our lovesoul therapists. Start skin soaking (link below!), and moisturising twice a day only. No scrubbing! This will help your skin to repair and rebalance itself before we can set you on a home care regime yourself.
Of course, exfoliating the skin is still important. When done correctly, exfoliating;
sloughs off excess surface dead skin cells
enables better product penetration
evens skin tone, texture and colour
The main ingredients in the Enzyme Peel include fruit enzymes from the papaya and pineapple. This gives a beautiful scent to the product, it smells divine! When you wet the enzyme peel, it activates the enzymes from the papaya. The active enzymes help slough off any excess dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin, leaving the skin silky and smooth.
How to use Janesce Gentle Enzyme Peel?
To use, take a small thumbnail size amount of the enzyme peel in one hand, and mix with warm water on your fingertips. Massage this into the skin for 2-3mins, keeping it wet the entire time. If it starts to dry, it will feel slightly tacky. If that’s the case, wet your fingertips again and continue massaging over your face and neck.
After 3 minutes, rinse and remove with a soft facial cloth, and follow with your usual Skin Soaking routine, spritz with your favourite Janesce mist and apply your moisturiser to lock in all that beautiful hydration. You only need to use the Enyzme Peel twice per week (or as otherwise recommended by your therapist, for sensitive skins we might need to build the strength of your skin back up before we touch any exfoliants!). I like to do mine in the evening when I have a bit more time, and it feels like a home spa!
