What You Should Know
Jello skin can only be achieved through inside-out balance and health. The term is defined as skin that is elastic and similar to jello, and the way that it bounces back when it is moved. The term was created by content creator and beauty enthusiast, Ava Lee, after she received a facial from celebrity esthetician, Lord Gavin McLeod-Valentine. She breaks down jello skin into the acronym: journey, eat balanced meals, lifestyle (not just skin care), laugh to encourage facial movement, and old is not bad - age gracefully with plump skin. While “glass skin” is dependent on the physical skin, jello skin focuses on the importance of inside factors that affect outside skin.

There is less of a focus on the use of skin care products, and more emphasis on achieving an overall healthy lifestyle. In order to achieve the jello skin look, internal nourishment is essential. In doing so, skin has an elastic and collagen-filled look, while internal health is balanced and fulfilled. Through diet adjustments, workout habits and self-care rituals, the body can produce increased collagen, which in turn, slows the aging process in the skin. Facial massage practices also provide lymphatic drainage and de-puffing to the skin, for a supple and firm result.
- Eat a balanced diet filled with fiber and collagen-rich foods.
- Perform facial exercises or massages with hands or devices.
- Stay consistent; jello skin is not an overnight process.
