Beauty benefits of glycerine

Glycerine is a naturally occurring compound in the body that is also found in plants. It is derived from them and has been used in skincare formulations for decades. It works as a great humectant which means it attracts moisture from the air and infuses it in the topmost layer of the skin. Due to the fact that it has a very low molecular weight (the molecules of glycerine are smaller), it can penetrate deep into the skin and replenish it. It has some amazing anti-ageing and moisturising properties.Here are some effective home remedies using glycerin, to get rid of wrinkles and make your skin soft and supple

Some of the amazing properties of Glycerin include

1. Moisturizing Properties

Glycerin acts as a very effective moisturizer on the skin. It makes your skin absorbs water from air reducing the dry and dull patches on your skin. It’s therefore very useful in winters as well. Glycerin can be applied directly onto the skin as a moisturizer. Dab a cotton ball with glycerin and apply it onto your skin. Wow, you will feel your skin gets soft, supple and hydrated immediately on its application. It adds hydration and health to your skin. Glycerin is also known for its meditative properties that work to heal dry, rough and irritated skin.

2. Smoothing

Glycerin For Dry Skin: As the skin ages, it looks dull and gets susceptible to irritation, redness and many other conditions, such as dry skin due to losing its ability to retain moisture. With aging, your skin gets rough – but using glycerin regularly can make your skin smooth and prevent other problems associated with dryness. This also helps in smoothing your skin and face by filling in the microscopic cracks in the dry skin.As you get older, your skin cannot retain moisture and this causes rough, dull skin that is prone to irritation and redness. Using glycerin regularly can prevent the problems associated with dryness.

3. Maintaining Water Balance

Glycerin As A Humectant: Humectants in glycerin attract water from air and help in retaining water in the skin. When glycerin or glycerol is applied to the skin, it minimizes water loss due to evaporation and maintains the skin’s water balance on an intercellular level– so keeps the skin well hydrated and nourished. Due to this reason, the glycerin in skincare products and lotions can cure, prevent and treat dry skin.

4. Glycerin Skin Protectant:

Due to its dual ability, glycerin works on two fronts at the same time by hydrating your skin as well as filling the cracks in dryer skin – so it acts as a protectant to protect your face by retaining the outer layer of the skin intact. This layer is critically needed to work as a natural barrier to save your skin from pollutants and skin disease-causing bacteria.

5. Cleansing:

Glycerin And Rose Water For Skin: Glycerin works as a cleanser to get rid of dirt and dust from the skin. Mix glycerin with rosewater to use it as a cleanser. Before sleeping at night, wipe your face thoroughly with the mixture. Apply this process regularly for real skin cleaning and skin pores cleansing.

6. Nourishing Your Skin:

Because of its skin-nourishing properties, glycerin is used in many beauty products. To nourish your skin, mix glycerin with your favorite moisturizer and use it every day. Its regular use will help to keep your skin healthy, soft and fresh.
