Amazing benefits and uses of glycerine
Independent Online Desk
Glycerine for skin care

Glycerine is one of the oldest and most common ingredients that can be found in almost any household. It is one of the most effective ingredients to treat dry and dehydrated skin. Glycerine, also known as glycol, can be extracted from animal fat as well as vegetable fat. It is a thick gelatinous, sweet tasting, odourless liquid that is used in a variety of cosmetics like creams, moisturisers, shampoos and conditioners. Apart from facial skin, glycerine can be used on lips as well to keep dryness at bay. You can replace those expensive lip balms with glycerine and have naturally soft lips. So, without much ado, let us see how glycerine supports our skin's health.

Highlights

  • Glycerine is an excellent moisturiser for skin
  • Glycerine helps maintain the pH balance of your skin
  • Glycerine has healing properties and can act as a natural medicine

 

Glycerine For Dry Skin | Removes Dryness

Glycerine is an excellent moisturiser for skin. Using it regularly on your skin will keep it hydrated and fresh. If you have a dry, patchy skin, then bring glycerine to your rescue and bid goodbye to dryness.


Maintains pH Balance

Glycerine helps maintain the pH balance of your skin. Using it regularly will minimise the water loss in your skin, which generally happens due to evaporation. It creates a layer of moisture on your skin that protects from harmful UV rays, keeping your skin healthy, hydrated and glowing. You can make it a part of your winter skin care regime.


Anti-Fungal

Glycerine has healing properties and can act as a natural medicine, especially in treating skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. 


Dead Skin Removal

Glycerine breaks down the proteins in dead skin cells and removes them from our skin. This helps in generation of new skin cells, giving you a clear and healthy skin.

Now you know why glycerine is so important for your beauty arsenal. Although there are many beauty products available in the market that claim to have glycerine in them, it is always recommended to use homemade glycerine beauty treatments to avoid putting any other chemicals on your skin. 

Here are some DIY glycerine beauty remedies that will give you healthy and happy skin:

Night Moisturiser
Take 50ml of glycerine and 50ml of rose water in a bowl and mix them well. Store the mixture in an air-tight bottle/jar. To use it, dip a cotton ball in it and wipe your skin with it. Leave it overnight. Wash your face the next morning. 


Hand Moisturiser
Take 2tsb honey, 2tsp glycerine and 2tsb oatmeal in bowl. Mix all the ingredients well until you get a thick paste. Apply the mixture on your hands and allow it to dry. Scrub it off with milk and then water.


Skin Cleanser And Softener
Take 2tsp sugar, 2tsp glycerine, 2drops lavender essential oil or geranium oil, 1tsp sea salt and juice of half a lemon. Mix all the ingredients well in a bowl and scrub gently onto damp skin, allowing the sugar to melt into the skin and salt to cleanse. Wash it off with water and say hello to see a super soft skin. 


Cracked Heel Healer
Massaging glycerine regularly on your heels may give you relief from painful cracked heels. All you have to do is to directly massage on your heels. You may also mix warm sesame seed oil with glycerine and apply it on the affected area.


Anti-Ageing Mask
Take 1 egg white, 1tsp corn-starch, 2tsp ice water and 1tsp glycerine in a bowl and mix all the ingredients well. Apply it on your face and allow it to dry. Wash it off with cold water. Using it regularly may give you better results.

 

Make-Up Remover
As we know that glycerine is a good skin cleanser, you may also use it as your make-up remover. Take 2tsp glycerine and mix it with the juice of half a lemon and 2tsp of milk. Now, with a help of cotton ball, wipe your face with this mixture. Wash off your face with normal water before going off to bed.


Anti-Acne Treatment
Take 1tsp glycerine, 1tsp Fuller's Earth, a pinch of camphor and a tsp of witch-hazel in a bowl and mix them well. Apply the mixture on the affected area. Leave on till dry and wash off with normal water.
