FAQs

How does hyaluronic acid benefit the skin?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule in the skin and connective tissues. As we age, the amount of natural HA declines. Environmental factors such as pollution accelerates this decline. In topical products, HA functions as a humectant by binding to water and increasing the water content in the skin. This plumps the skin and gives it a dewy appearance. HA is great for all skin types, while individuals with dry or mature skin will benefit the most. It is non-irritating and does not trigger acne, eczema, or allergic reactions.

Are fruit enzymes good for skin?

An enzyme is a natural catalyst, meaning it speeds up the rate of reaction in natural processes. In skincare, fruit enzymes catalyze exfoliation by digesting keratin proteins in the outermost layer of the skin. They offer a safe and gentle form of exfoliation by sloughing off dead skin cells without contributing to micro tears that are common with most physical exfoliants. They eliminate dull skin and help to reveal soft, glowing skin underneath.

How often should I exfoliate?

Two to three times a week depending on skin type and tolerance. 

Why are antioxidants included in skincare?

Antioxidants protect the skin by limiting free radical production. They also reduce inflammation and help the skin to repair itself.

Is Priority Skincare's "Exfoliating Enzyme Masque" safe for sensitive skin?

This product is safe for all skin types. We recommend to always perform a patch test before trying any new products to ensure the ingredients will not irritate the skin.

Will Priority Skincare's "Exfoliating Enzyme Masque" cause my skin to peel?

While stronger chemical peels such TCA cause skin to peel during the exfoliation process (think snake skin), gentle exfoliants such as the enzymes that are used in this product are not expected to cause a visible skin peel.
