Remember that time you applied glue on your hands and had this unexplainable pleasure peeling it off? Guess a peel off mask is equivalent to that joy! After all, there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing your skin get a complete cleanse by peeling off a mask. Don’t know about you but for us, DIY peel off masks are a major part of our weekend ‘gram. Remember that your prime ingredient for a peel off mask needs to be gelatin because of its consistency and of course, due to the fact that it helps replenish the collagen in your skin. Want to jump on the peel off mask bandwagon too? Scroll down as we tell you how to make it at home…
