Welcome to the Impaired Enzyme Activity Masterclass! This signature class has been created for industry professionals wanting to advance their education and provide an intermediate to advanced level of curated education. Our online masterclasses will consist of many topics and showcase skin structure and function, so that you can see the skin at a three-dimensional level, in order to elevate your knowledge and diagnostic skills resulting in attainable results for your clients.

This signature masterclass showcases a 1-hour video on "Impaired Enzyme Activity" followed by in-depth assessment questions covering the following topics:

  • What are Enzymes
  • Balanced Hydration – The Cells & Systems Involved
  • The Fibroblast & Glycosaminoglycans
  • The Dermal Reserve
  • Circulatory & Lymphatic Systems
  • Rete Ridges/Dermal-Epidermal Junction
  • Sebaceous Glands
  • Desmosomes & Tight Junctions
  • Keratinocyte Lifecycle and its Defence Systems
  • Leading Causes
  • Skin Conditions with Impaired Enzyme Activity
  • Linking Product Composition to the Cells & Systems Affected 


"The word “dehydration” is vastly overused within the skincare and aesthetics industry, along with the condition misdiagnosed and at times, treated incorrectly. Why is this? It comes down to understanding the cells and systems involved as to why there is a lack of free water within the epidermis and being able to recognise the link between fast trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) and an impaired acid mantle."
