Glycerin is part of many cosmetics as the softening and moisturizing component, but its charm is as well that this substance can be bought without effort in drugstore. It allows to use glycerin in cosmetology in house conditions.
There are two opposite opinions on what glycerin for skin is good. On one of them it moisturizes the skin, creating on it invisible film and holding moisture in cages. But on the second the insidiousness of glycerin also consists in this property to hold moisture: if it is enough in air, then it will absorb microscopic parts of water and to hold them on the surface of skin, creating feelings of freshness. But in case air dry, then damp film on the surface of face creates glycerin from internal reserves of skin, extending moisture from cages and drying up it. But while disputes on advantage and harm of liquid glycerin in cosmetology continue, producers of cosmetics continue to use actively it, fairly including much cheaper component, than, for example, the hyaluronic acid having similar properties.
Glycerin form, habitual for all, - liquid. But comparative novelty is the glycerin in bars having similar properties which is used in soap manufacture.
It is applied by houses as as a part of masks and creams, and in pure form. If regularly to rub skin the sponge moistened with glycerin it is possible to reduce inflammatory processes and to accelerate skin regeneration therefore glycerin is useful also to the injured skin, and to the skin inclined with aging. Also on the basis of glycerin it is possible to make lotion which can use at any type of skin. Basic component of such lotion broth of the most suitable herbs on which 100 g the glycerin teaspoon is added. For example, for the skin inclined to inflammations, calendula broth will approach, oily skin camomile broth will calm, and for dry mint broth will be good. The only lack of similar lotions is that they are not stored long therefore each two days (on condition of storage in the fridge) it is necessary to do new portion. The structure of face packs with glycerin can be not less various. The universal recipe for any type of skin is mix from equal parts of honey, glycerin and mineral water. It is necessary to wash away such mask later quarter of hour after drawing.
You should not be afraid of feeling of stickiness of skin after application of house means with glycerin use. This feeling passes several minutes as glycerin with ease is absorbed later.
Having set goal to help skin to keep moisture, cosmetic glycerin can be used not only as a part of lotions, creams or masks. The easiest way to keep beauty of skin of hands is to make glycerin soap for which glycerin in bars is kindled on water bath the essential oils and other substances improving qualitative structure of the final product are added to it.
