What exactly is glycerin?

Classified as a humectant (which retains moisture) humectants are great at moisturizing your skin without hindering the effectiveness of other ingredients in your skincare products. Although you may find some of your products labeled synthetic glycerin, you should always opt for plant-based glycerin. 

Being a versatile addition to any moisturizer, lotion, or soap bar, the benefits of glycerin are endless. We are listing our favorite 5 benefits of glycerin in skincare.

5 Benefits of Glycerin

5 Benefits of Glycerin

Glycerin for face is one of those ingredients that totally outshines in many skincare products. While it is often loved for its moisturizing benefits, there is more to it. Here are 5 benefits of glycerin you may not have known about.

  • Deeply moisturizes

Say hello to flawless glow! Glycerin doesn’t just moisturize the skin but also zaps moisture from the lower levels of your skin and pulls it out to the upper levels. This helps the skin moisturize itself adequately.

  • Tightens your skin
  • If you have mature skin, glycerin is going to be your skin’s new bff. With regular use of glycerin, you are going to wake up to plump, dewy and significantly radiant looking skin.

  • Creates a protective skin barrier

  • While maintaining the skin’s protective layer of moisture, glycerin creates a layer that protects your skin from environmental and sun damage. 

  • Brightens up your skin

  • Packed with rejuvenating properties, glycerin goes a step beyond moisturizing your skin and keeps your skin looking radiant, supple and bright. 

  • Prevents signs of ageing

  • This has to be the highlight of the many benefits of glycerin. By infusing moisture into your skin, glycerin can effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin younger-looking. 

    Does Glycerin suit all skin types?

    By now, we are already Team Glycerin, but you can be too, skin type no bar. Glycerin benefits all kinds of skin types and here are few examples that might just have you running to the skin care aisle. 

  • Glycerin for dry skin
  • A humectant to its core, glycerin is extremely moisturizing to all skin types especially the dry skin which needs it a little more. Since it effectively moisturizes all layers of skin, it provides an extra hydration boost. Skin-quenching right?

  • Glycerin for oily skin
  • We all know someone who skips the moisturizer owing to your skin. Most often, that someone is us. Even though oily skin and a moisturizer may seem like an incompatible marriage, it isn’t true. Just because our skin is oily, doesn’t mean it doesn’t need moisturization. Glycerin-based moisturizers are non- comedogenic and much unlikely to clog your pores.  If you have oily skin and would love a moisturizer, look for one with glycerin in it.

  • Glycerin for combination skin
  • In addition to hydrating the skin, glycerin also helps maintain the skin's protective moisture barrier. That's why it's so effective on combination skin. Remember to protect your skin even if it isn't particularly sensitive or at the either end of the skin type spectrum. 

  • Glycerin for sensitive skin
  • Because glycerin is gentle, it moisturizes sensitive skin while providing a soothing effect. Additionally, plant-based glycerin is less likely to irritate skin. However, do not use it as a sole ingredient rather opt for glycerin infused moisturizers or lotions.
