As the name “peel-off” suggests, these masks peel impurities and toxins from your face. Gelatin face masks have the texture of fresh gel, and should be applied in a thick, even layer covering the entire face–from the forehead to the neck.

What do peel-off masks do?

They cleanse oily skin and clear up your skin tone. But they have all kinds of other properties that can benefit your skin in many other ways.
