Looking for a quick fix for dull skin? An enzyme treatment might just be a good bet. Often sourced from fruits and veggies (for example, pineapple and pumpkin enzymes are particularly popular), enzymes are known for effectively exfoliating the skin, without being overly harsh. Since they work by specifically breaking down the protein in dead skin cells, they're generally considered more gentle than other chemical exfoliation methods, which makes them a great option if you have sensitive skin. And best of all, there are so many great at-home options these days, in the form of masks, peels and more — and they basically deliver facial-level results.
Enzyme treatments are often on the higher end of the price spectrum but considering the fact that you can use these multiple times — versus going to the spa and dropping the same amount on a single treatment — you do end up saving some cash at the end of the day. So, for professional-grade results that you can achieve yourself, look no further than some of our favorite enzyme treatments in the slideshow ahead.
