The hype about Jelly Masks
Whether it be in the salon, amongst your friends and family or word on the street, chances are, by now you’ve heard all the latest hype about jelly masks and how amazing they are for your skin. You, like so many others, might catch yourself wondering whether it’s just another mask fad making its rounds in the beauty community or whether it’s really worth trying. Well, good news, we’re here to help! We’re here to break it down for you and explain what exactly jelly masks are and what makes them so special.
Jelly masks are electrolyte rich masks that are topically applied to the skin. They come as a powdered formulation which is activated (or jellified, if you will) by adding water. As they are applied, they create a barrier to the skin which forms a vacuum effect as they set. This is part of the magic of the jelly mask and is a key factor in why they are so effective in delivering nutrients to the skin. It not only prevents product needlessly evaporating but the vacuum encourages all the beneficial ingredients to gently penetrate the skin. Providing a unique and effective delivery method for locking nutrients into the skin and instantly hydrating. This also makes them ideal to use in conjunction with other treatments such as serums, moisturisers or concentrated skincare where you benefit from deeper penetration into the skin.
The masks simultaneously boost moisture, soothe, gently exfoliate as well as balance and enrich the skin for overall improved skin health. They contain key active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, retinol and algae for hydrating and anti-aging effects but yet don’t contain any harsh ingredients, are cruelty free, and free of nasty chemicals. Unlike some of the comparisons available, jelly masks are eco-friendly and aren’t single use sheets or individually plastic wrapped.
They’re known for being gentle on skin and suitable for all skin types. Plus there are a variety of options available with different active ingredients to treat a multitude of skin concerns. These range from hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, CBD and even 24K gold! Basically, whatever your skin concern, there’s a treatment specifically for you! They are non-invasive and gentle enough to be used as frequently as you like and you don’t have to worry about drying out or damaging your skin.
And don’t think that you are limited to using your jelly mask on your face only! You can use them to target any and all areas you can think of. In fact, jelly masks are often applied as post wax care due to their strong soothing, smoothing and hydrating properties.
These are just some of the reasons they’ve quickly become a staple in salons around the globe!
So if you’re after home skincare that’s salon quality, makes you feel good, is fun to use but still seriously effective. Skincare that improves your skin texture and appearance whilst simultaneously working on nourishing your skin from within over the long term, these are the masks for you!
