More Than Makeup Spotlight: 4 Benefits of Glycerin

 Sometimes, life throws us a curveball. Some of our complexions take these curveballs better than others. What if your skin isn’t taking the hit so well? That’s where Glycerin comes in. This new beauty ingredient is rapidly taking over the natural beauty world. Check out the benefits of using products containing Glycerin:

  1. Glycerin takes care of your skin. There’s never a good time for acne to rear its head. Unfortunately for us, breakouts don’t always follow our schedule. Glycerin is a natural acne-fighter, cutting off oily skin at the source. With less oil on your face, the chances of you having a breakout decrease dramatically. Glycerin also removes the impurities that can clog up skin and make it look dull. So next time you’ve got a big event coming up, don’t fret. You’ll show up looking flawless as ever.
  2. It keeps skin supple. Cutting out the oil doesn’t mean having a dry face. Many anti-oil products tend to do their job too well, over-drying the skin and causing unsightly flaking. Glycerin doesn’t have that issue. The components in glycerin actually retain water in the skin, keeping it supple and hydrated. Hydrated skin allows makeup to apply much more smoothly, giving you some much-deserved radiance. No need for heavy night creams here ladies. You’re skin could have other issues, but moisture won’t be one of them.
  3. Glycerin keeps us bright. Even though life can be dull sometimes, it shouldn’t make our skin dull with it. Our lifestyles, while fun, can wreak some havoc on our skin. Pollutants and our diets (or lack thereof) can weaken our skin, making it appear dull and weathered. Glycerin is our skins savior, fighting off our bad life decisions. It helps heal wounds and scars, giving our skin the radiance we haven’t seen since we were kids. So go ahead and enjoy that extra drink at your next happy hour. We know we will.
  4. It keeps us young. Life just can’t give our skin a break. In addition to dulling our complexions, life also loves to plaster all of our stress on our face in the form of wrinkles. Wrinkles are something we’re not a fan of and are always trying to combat. With glycerin, we can put down our army of creams and moisturizers. Glycerin’s texture fills in the gaps wrinkles create, giving us a smooth, firm appearance. Smooth skin creates the perfect base for your airbrush makeup, and sets a great tone for the rest of your day.
