We've called it, Glycerine is the most underrated ingredient in your skincare cabinet.
It is one of the hardest working ingredients in your beauty routine that rarely gets the attention it deserves. When we think of ultimate skin hydration, ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and aloe vera immediately spring to mind. Just as effective but a lot less popular, is Glycerin. The type of ingredient that can quite simply be referred to as a magic potion for curing dry skin. It’s also one of the key ingredients in the Bali Body Self Tan Remover. Ready to combat dry skin forever? Here is everything you need to know.
Glycerine is a colorless and odorless liquid that can be derived from plant sources amongst others. Just like hyaluronic acid, it’s a humectant. This means that glycerine can draw moisture from the air around us and help keep that moisture in skin. Think of it as a really wet sponge, that continues to attract more water to itself. It also helps slow down the evaporation of water from your skin to really help combat that intense dryness we all hate. Here are some of the reasons why Glycerine should be an essential in your routine. It’s all good news if your skin is dry AF.
Hydrates the skin effectively
Even if you have never sought out Glycerine in your skincare routine, the chances of it being in your moisturiser is quite high. As such an effective moisturiser, product manufacturers have incorporated it into formulations to moisturise and hydrate the skin for years. Whether you’re dealing with a case of mild dehydration or serious cracked winter skin, adding moisturiser enriched with Glycerine will make each skin cell feel like it has its own swimming pool. The Bali Body Luxe Moisturising Lotion is a moisture intense body lotion, rich in nourishing ingredients including Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and you guessed it, Glycerin.
Helps to protect and improve skin barrier function
Due to its hydrating properties Glycerine helps to protect the skin against harsh products. It works to prevent the penetration of damaging compounds into the body, aiding the upper layer of the skin to ensure it stays soft, supple and hydrated.
Prevents the loss of water in skin
By preventing the loss of water, Glycerin helps the natural oils in your skin to nourish and repair. A vital process for skin rejuvenation and natural hydration. While it may not be the most googled beauty ingredient, it is certainly one of the best. As one of the key ingredients in the Bali Body Self Tan Remover, Glycerin effectively replenishes the skin and provides intense hydration while the Rose Extract gently removes the unwanted product build up. You'll never feel like you need to scrub off the outer 3 layers of your skin ever again.
