Enzyme Masques Re-Educate the muscles affecting the deeper fragile facial muscles, tightening and toning in the sub-dermal area. It holds the facial muscles in contraction tightly for the duration of the masque. This promotes a vascular reaction causing the muscles to pulsate, as in passive exercise which may cause minor itching due to the increased circulation.
The endogenous enzymatic antioxidants in skin consist of superoxide dismutases, catalase, glutathione peroxidase, NAD(P) H:Quinone reductase and the thioredoxin system, which catalyze the breakdown or consumption of compounds capable for initiating oxidation reactions. As already noted, the antioxidant enzymes are often referred to as detoxication enzymes. Typically, detoxication refers to those enzymes capable of metabolizing a diverse range of drugs and toxins.
