Jelly cleansers seem to be the skin-care topic of discussion
this month. Are these jellies here to stay (like PB’s best friend) or just a
fad (like those sandals you deny ever having owned)?
Because jelly formulas are packed with natural
oils, they're great for dry skin. Those oils will balance the skin’s moisture levels so you won’t end up with a tight, dry feeling. After cleansing, jellies simply wash off with a bit of warm
water, leaving the skin refreshed and renewed. Their gumminess also gives them two-for-one benefits, as
they can be used as gentle mask treatments. Or, if you just want deeper cleansing, leave it on for at least five minutes before rinsing off.
Some jellies contain wheat extract, which minimizes pores and provides balanced
moisture. I'd avoid those that contain fragrance, which can irritate
sensitive skin and even hide dangerous ingredients. With jelly cleansers as with all skin-care, looking for natural products and clean ingredients lists is doing your skin a favor.
