Now use glycerin to keep your skin healthy. Not only is it a kick ass product, but it also beats the others at treating skin problems.
This organic compound, to give you a small chemistry lesson, is a mixture of sugar and alcohol. The liquid is thick, slightly sweet, has no color and no smell. But it packs a punch when it comes to working magic on your skin. Many commercial beauty products use glycerin in their composition. But you can use it by itself (along with some other products found at home) and create your own arsenal of beauty treatment.
Dos & Don’ts Of Using Glycerin For Skin:
Don’t use glycerin directly on oily skin. Always dilute it preferably with rose water
Never use glycerin in large quantities
Do not leave it on skin for long time
Make sure you wash you face well as glycerin might attract dust and pollution due to its sticky nature.
