Almost all skin and aging problems are due to nutritional deficiencies of the skin. That is why nutrient suppliers such as vitamins, trace elements, amino acids, secondary plant substances and high-quality essential fatty acids in cosmetic products are of great importance for healthy skin.

Glycerin literally does everything from moisturize the skin to help uphold the skin’s protective barrier. Not only does glycerin hydrate the skin, but it actually draws moisture from the skin’s inner layers up to the epidermis, making the skin plumper and restoring a youthful look.

Yes, glycerin is excellent for the skin! By hydrating the skin, glycerin helps diminish and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Glycerin is a little like rosewater or vitamin C in that it’s one of those ingredients that performs an astounding multitude of tasks it just depends what you want it to do for your particular skin.


  1. Use glycerin as a facial moisturizer – If Glycerin does more than just hydrate the skin it can pull moisture up from the skin’s dermis up to the dermis, keeping it hydrated and moisturised.
  2. Use glycerin as a body moisturizer – Glycerin-infused body moisturizers are great for dry, cracked, wintertime skin!
  3. Use glycerin as a cleanser – Chances are you’ve seen glycerin soaps—they’re usually almost see-thru and feel creamy to the touch. Oil-free and non-comedogenic, glycerin makes a great cleanser for anyone with a tendency towards clogged pores its moisturising properties mean that someone with dry skin doesn’t have to worry about getting any drier.
  4. Use glycerin as a toner  In Hydrosols they draw up and lock moisture into the skin like nobody’s business, so if you have a little rosewater toner, try adding just a tad of glycerin to it and see if you find it makes your skin just that much smoother!
  5. Use glycerin as a makeup remover – Yup! Glycerin takes off make-up! Just put a little glycerin and a few drops of water on a cotton pad and swipe gently over your skin. Remove any residual glycerin with a tissue. If you find it’s just a little too oily, you can add a few more drops of water.
  6. Use glycerin to make dull hair shine – It takes some experimenting to figure out just how much to use but glycerin makes a great hair gloss! Try putting a few little dabs of glycerin on your hands, rub them together, and gently run over and through your hair. It’ll give even the dullest hair a vibrant sheen!
  7. Use glycerin as a hair conditioner – Glycerin’s moisturizing properties not only work on skin—they work on hair as well! Use it as a conditioner on dry hair but make sure to dilute it with something else like your regular conditioner. Also, if you have dyed hair, ask your hairstylist for advice about whether it’s safe before doing anything.
  8. Use glycerin as a lip gloss/moisturizer – A little glycerin over the lips makes a great lip gloss that’s not only shiny but gives your lips a little shot of moisture! This is especially important since the lip area is especially prone to dryness, wrinkles, and fine lines.
  9. Use glycerin to make old make-up usable again – Have a dried-out lipstick or foundation that’s seen better days? Add a little tiny drop of glycerin and you can probably bring it back to life!
  10. Use glycerin on your hands and feet – Giving yourself a mani-pedi? Dilute a little glycerin with some rosewater or even your favorite moisturizer and rub it into your hands and feet.

As you can see, glycerin is one of the hardest working products in skin care and luckily, you don’t have to bang down any doors to get it! All you have to do is check the ingredients list, so the next time you’re purchasing cosmetics, keep an eye out for glycerin. We have a feeling your skin will be all the better for it!
