“Show yourself the compassion you show others”
How often do we sit down and shower ourselves with love, praise or kindness? How often in this ever-busy, always moving life do we slow down and take care of ourselves? Self-care is not an indulgence. It is an essential life skill that will stand the test of time. However, today for some, self-care often takes a backseat, and some fail to understand its essence. Anita’s Aromatics believes that compassion towards self is a very important part of your being. And the first step towards selfcare is showing compassion to our skin.
The skin is the largest organ of our body and acts as an outer shield. Simultaneously, it is also prone to various hazards due to its direct exposure to the elements. Thus, it is imperative to take adequate care of your skin. Today, the market offers a plethora of products for skincare, but not all are the best for our skin. However, Glycerin stands apart and ensures that your skin is in its best state.
Glycerin is a ubiquitous ingredient in the skincare industry, owing to all its benefits. Glycerin is a natural polyol compound coming under the category of carbohydrates. It is a colorless, odorless, viscous sweet-tasting liquid. It is essentially derived from vegetable oils and animal fats and even artificially produced. However, we believe plant-based Glycerin is the best to use and is most commonly found in skincare products. Plant-based Glycerin is usually derived from the oils and fats of coconut and palm. They are subjected to a certain pressure and temperature and treated with water to obtain pure Glycerin.
Glycerin is one of our most preferred ingredient, and we root for it because of its natural goodness, which makes it the skin’s absolute well-wisher! Glycerin is a humectant, which means it pulls moisture from the surrounding and the deepest layers of the skin to the upper layer (epidermis). Thus, it is one of the best moisturising agents for the skin. It is also an emollient, whereby it soothes and softens the skin. It is proven to alleviate any skin-related problem. It imparts a firm, soft, shiny, smooth and elastic skin to maintain adequate moisture. Glycerin forms a barrier shielding the skin from pollution. It is also non-comedogenic, as it doesn’t clog pores and keeps the skin squeaky clean. It is compatible and a versatile ingredient as it can be used as a toner, cleanser, moisturiser and exfoliator. It treats acne and blemishes effectively.
The benefits are endless, and that is why we refer to Glycerin as a Gold Mine of goodness. If you want to use Glycerin in its natural form, we have got some simple DIY solutions that you can try.
- Add three tablespoons of milk and one tablespoon of Glycerin. Wet your face, apply all the mix all over your face, and let it stay overnight. Wake up to a nourished and cleansed face.
