After indulging in the millennial craze for rose gold make-up last year, who would have thought that we’ll be adding jelly-like masks to our skincare regime this year? Honestly, it is the slimy jelly texture that makes it a cool and irresistible trend. Jelly face masks have the need-to-touch consistency that makes you want to use it and play with it like a kid even more, and that’s before you even apply it on your face and notice the flawless, extra glowy results. The Jell-O like feeling on the skin enhances the coolness factor of the mask, which is a merit in its own. Having said that, it’s safe to say that jelly face mask trend is a perfect rival to other masks that were trending last year such as clay, glitter and the bubble mask.
This new breed of ultra-hydrating jelly skin heroes typically feature a cocktail of hydration-boosting actives such as hyaluronic acid and alpha hydroxy acids (better known as AHAs). These are the saviour ingredients known to turn flaky skin to soft and dewy skin. So whether it’s a skincare routine you follow right before a party or the one you follow daily, adding jelly face mask to it will become your go-to for glowing skin all year long.
