Gelatin (Jello) Peel Off Face Mask


By Tiffany Moore

Putting jello (gelatine) over face may sound kind of wacky in the world of beauty and wellness, but this refreshing dessert-associated ingredient is surprisingly a blissful delight for the skin. Whether you are looking to naturally remove blackheads on nose without popping, revitalize and enliven a dull lackluster complexion, or improve skin tone and texture, the jello face mask serves amazingly well as your multipurpose skin care savior.


So what’s the big deal about gelatine? Gelatin is an insoluble fibrous protein substance derived from animal collagen that helps build your collagen best when consumed as food. For example, chicken skin, pork trotters, shark fin and soy products like tofu and edamame.


Collagen is a very important nutrient that is responsible for your skin’s strength and elasticity. The natural aging process plus a host of other factors such as sun exposure, dehydration and smoking can cause skin collagen to degenerate over time, resulting in the loss of skin elasticity and firmness. Poor skin elasticity can spell trouble for your skin (and wallet) – your once-supple skin becomes loose and starts to sag, wrinkles and fine lines can creep up onto your face, and send you scrambling into the shopping mall searching for the latest super high tech wrinkle-stoppers that usually come with cray-cray price tags.


It is believed that if you apply unflavored gelatine on your face as a peel mask, the collagen will bind with old skin cells, impurities and excess oil that can clog your pores if not removed. Blocked pores, as we all already know, are one of the main culprits behind pesky skin problems such as blackheads, zits and acne.


So when you peel off the gelatin face mask, you remove debris that are embedded in the skin to reveal phenomenally clear blackhead-free skin that’s oh-so-soft to the touch.


I am a huge fan of peel-offs facial masks since I was a young teenager troubled with oily skin and open pores. I love them simply because of a variety of reasons. First and foremost, they are great for loosening dead skin cells without irritation, unlike some face scrubs with chemicals that can be a bit harsh on oily skin. Second, peels removes stubborn blackheads without ouchs and help minimize pore size at the same time. Third, gelatin stimulates collagen production to keep aging skin smooth, firm and young-looking while reducing unsightly skin hyperpigmentation problems like dark spots and age spots.


You will be nothing by impressed by this unbelievably simple-to-create homemade jello gelatin facial mask. It taps into the power of natural fruit enzymes to brighten dim-looking skin and help tired skin spring back to life after a late-night party in town. If you have mature skin that is dry and prone to flaking, this nourishing jello face peel also help immediately restore hydration to moisture-straved skin . Your complexion not only feels baby soft and perfectly conditioned, your skin tone will also appear lighter and brighter with a healthy glow after a few uses.


And if you are very into skin whitening products such as fade creams and skin bleaches, you probably know that they empty your wallet pretty quickly and not to mention, can sometimes endanger your health. My cheaper and safer “whiter skin in no time” solution for dark skin is, combine some powdered gelatin with the juice of ½ medium papaya and the juice of ½ kiwifruit to make a paste. Smear on clean face and neck as a gentle exfoliating face mask. Wash off after a few minutes.


Why does this work? Papaya contains enzymes (papain) to gently slough away dead skin cells that can dull skin while kiwi is super rich in Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant widely used in store-bought skin whitening creams to help fade skin discoloration and lighten the overall skin complexion.





Homemade Gelatin Face Peel Mask Recipe

You need these ingredients:





For people with normal to dry skin type, I suggest peach, raspberry, apple, papaya, pear or strawberry juice, or a combination of these fruits.



And if acne prone oily skin is a problem for you, use citrus fruit juices like lemon, lime, orange, or grapefruit. Carrot, tomato or white grape juice is also ideal. Better yet, combine some of these fruit juices to grab away excess sebum.



How to make homemade gelatin face peel mask

1. Place unflavored gelatin and fruit juice in a small sauce pan. Heat over a gentle flame, constantly stirring, until the gelatin dissolves completely. Transfer to a bowl.



2. Refrigerate until gelatin is firm and almost set but still liquid enough so that you can easily apply on your face. This should take approximately 20 minutes.



3. Using a clean spoon, stir to check if it's the right thick consistency. Simply spread the paste on your face and neck with a facial mask brush or spatula. Avoid the delicate skin around your eye and upper lip area.



4. Relax and leave the gelatin mask on until it gets dry, about 25 minutes.



5. When it is completely dried, peel off the facial mask. Make sure to start under your chin and peel it off in an upward direction.



6. Rinse your face with fresh cold water. Pat dry. Apply your favorite toner and face cream to lock in moisture.
