The Ingredient List: Glycerin

One of the main goals of a skin care blog is to educate our readers about how to take better care of their skin. A difference between those with great skin versus those with, shall we say “less than stellar” skin, is their knowledge about ingredients. Whether your shopping online or browsing skin care products in store, it can get overwhelming when you consider what products to choose for yourself. Looking for key ingredients that help with specific concerns will give you more confidence in your skin care purchases.

Today on The Better You Blog, we want to highlight one of our favorite ingredients: glycerin.

So, what is it? Good question. Glycerin is a compound that’s already naturally found in your skin. It helps keep your skin hydrated, buoyant, and fight dryness. Along with that, glycerin is a humectant. This means that attracts water beneath the service of your skin and draws it up to the top.

You should know that it takes more than just one ingredient to hydrate your skin. There are a few ingredients out there that hydrate your skin. Lactic Acid, Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid are among them. When it comes to the supreme queen of hydration though you want to go with Glycerin.

It’s important to understand the ingredients that go into your products for them to be more effective. While glycerin is just one of many in a combination of ingredients engineered to dry your skin, it’s a good one to look out for when product shopping. When considering the products to use for your skin, looking at the ingredients that make it up will leave you feeling a little less lost.

Everyone’s skin is different. Sometimes our skin will respond to certain ingredients better than others. If you are tired of applying lotions and moisturizers to your dry skin, without any results, it might be time to switch up your products.
