I love exfoliating. Exfoliation is a key element of any effective skincare regimen. This is how you remove the dead skin cells off your body so that your healthy skin can receive the nutrients it needs to replenish and heal. It can also then adequately and efficiently absorb any new healing ingredients you put onto it, so your skin can look and feel radiant, smooth and healthy!
Imagine trying to water a garden that had a pile of dead leaves covering it. You would end up with a pile of soggy dead leaves and a garden bed that is still dry as a bone, right?! Likewise, you NEED to remove the dead skin cells from your body first, before you do anything else.
There are many different ways to exfoliate. One can use a physical exfoliator that actually (gently) scrapes the skin, such as chia seeds, cranberry seeds, sugar etc., or one can use a chemical exfoliator, such as Glycolic Acid or fruit enzymes.
Today, I’m exfoliating with papaya and fruit enzymes (!)
I am honored to again partner with Jan Marini Skin Research to try Skin Zyme Mask and Clean Zyme Cleanser for free in exchange for my review.
Jan Marini Skin Research (JMSR) is one of the world’s most esteemed professional skin care brands. JMSR has teamed up with some top physician and research scientists to develop ground breaking technology that not only addresses the world’s most common skin problems, but that revolutionizes the skincare industry. JMSR has introduced a multitude of technological firsts, has been awarded numerous patents and has published multiple independent peer-reviewed studies on its products.
Clean Zyme Cleanser and Skin Zyme Mask are at-home exfoliation products that can remove dead skin cells, but they are gentle enough to use on all skin types. So whether you have dry skin, sensitive skin, irritated skin, acne-prone skin, oily skin, or combination skin (like me), you could benefit from this. Men often ask me if I can help them with their skin, and I say yes. It’s just a matter of figuring out your skin type, because both men and women have skin (!), so skincare is not just for women. Likewise, Clean Zyme Cleanser and Skin Zyme Mask if perfect for all genders.
So how do these work? First of all, they work better together and are actually intended to use as a pair within your comprehensive skin care routine. The exfoliating power comes from the Proteolytic Enzyme Papain from Green Unripened Papaya. Proteolytic enzymes are the most scientifically proven way to exfoliate at home and achieve smoother more radiant skin. These enzymes only digest dead or diseased protein material without harming living healthy cells. This means they can remove the build-up of dead skin cells (which can cause a rough texture and flaking). The best part is because these enzymes selectively digest dead or diseased tissue, they can safely be used any time for an immediate polished look.
These enzymes are especially useful for anyone who may experience temporary dryness or flaking following laser procedures, chemical peels, glycolic acid, Retin-A or other tretinoins or acne medication. Studies show that that the annoyance of peeling flaking skin can virtually be eliminated.
These products also contain Lemon Extract, Orange Extract, Sugar Maple, Honey, Aloe Juice, Bilberry Fruit, Chlorophyll-Copper complex, and other amazing ingredients.
Ok now how do you use these?
Apply Clean Zyme in place of regular cleanser and leave it on 1 to 2 minutes. Remove with a clean, wet and wrung out washcloth using lukewarm water. Blot dry.
Apply Skin Zyme in a thin even layer over entire face and (entire!) neck and allow to remain for up to 20 minutes. To remove Skin Zyme, apply a small amount of Clean Zyme to face and massage very gently to achieve emulsification. There is no need to add water. Remove with a washcloth and splash face 10 to 15 times with lukewarm water. Blot dry and follow with your usual skin care routine.
When I used them, I found them to be very gentle on my skin and immediately felt like my skin felt smoother and more radiant afterwards. The citrus aroma lifted my spirits and was the perfect way to start or end my day! I recommend you try it for yourself!
