With social media, new skincare terms and trends are coming out almost every day, telling you that your skin needs to look like glass, dolphin skin, honey…
Sure, these are unique ways to describe your look and they may sound a little silly, but they all represent a goal we want for our skin: we want a poreless and luminous complexion, with a smooth firmness that bounces back when touched. If we can achieve this look without makeup, even better!
And what stays firm and bounces back always? Jell-O!
WHAT IS JELL-O SKIN?
I know, it sounds silly. Jell-O skin? What does a sugary, wiggly block have to do with healthy skin and good skincare?
It all comes down to collagen, the main building block of strong, elastic skin. As we age, our body’s natural collagen production decreases, taking the natural bounce and thickness away from our skin. Our skin also starts to thin out as we age, which can compromise the skin’s moisture barrier and lead to skin dehydration.
Jell-O skin focuses on the way your skin FEELS, with the goal being firm, supple skin that bounces back when touched - like Jell-O! This yummy new skincare term came from TikTok and exploded into popularity after the original video received over 1.5 million likes.
HOW TO GET JELL-O SKIN
Because it's easier to prevent something than to cure it, it’s important to protect your body’s reserve of collagen that you already have. Regular use of antioxidant-rich Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, rich moisturizers, retinol alternatives, and gentle exfoliators will protect your skin's collagen structure from external aggressors like damaging UV rays, age-accelerating pollutants, and hormone-disrupting toxins.
Daily use of natural skincare with a high concentration of repairing actives will help you slow down Father Time....and get you closer to that youthful glow of Jell-O skin!
