As we move away from full-glam makeup to the natural, bare-faced, no-makeup makeup looks this 2018, we're going to have to come in strong and prepared with a fully loaded skincare routine.
No more covering up with foundation and concealer, rather, the focus is going to be all about embracing your skin in all its naked glory... and embracing all the skincare trends out there to see which works best for you.
One of the skincare trends that we're super excited about is jelly masks! 1) Jelly sounds playful and just freaking fun. 2) Who doesn't love taking selfies with face masks? Jelly masks are basically gel formulated masks with a wobbly, gelatin-like consistency, usually formulated to deliver hydration, soothe irritated skin, and brighten dull skin.
So we know that getting with the program can be a little hard when you don't know where to start, so here are a few jelly masks that range from high to low end that can get you started!
This K-beauty cult favourite was huge in 2017, and it's popularity doesn't seem to be coming to a halt anytime soon. The watermelon mask contains restoring vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids that cools inflammed or irritated skin. It also contains hydrating hyaluronic acid (meaning that it pulls moisture from the air into your skin) so it's perfect for keeping your skin moisturized.
