How Dr. Barbara Sturm Darker Skin Tones Enzyme Cleanser Works
How to use it: Sprinkle a dime-size amount of this powder on one palm before adding a few drops of water on top. Rub your hands together until bubbles form, and spread it all over your face (avoiding the eye area). Then add a bit more water to your hands and gently massage in before rinsing off with water.
What it does: Inside, there are lipase and subtilisin enzymes that break down the keratin protein in skin when added with water. That decongests skin by removing dead cells, excess oil, and other clingy debris (like makeup or pollution particles). As a bonus, there's ascorbic acid to brighten . . . but not lighten my darker skin at the same time.
