How to Make Glycerin Skincare Products

Time is the fairest and most precious commodity in the world. Time never favors anyone, as everyone has the same 24 hours in a day. However, what sets people apart is their attitude toward time. If you waste time, time will ignore you; if you value time, time will acknowledge you. When you outpace others and become a better version of yourself, that’s the best reward time can give you.

So, on the skincare journey, just keep striving, because time can see it all…

In skincare, I recommend developing the habit of checking skincare product ingredient lists. Many ingredients that we may not pay attention to in our daily lives can play significant roles in skincare. One of these ingredients is glycerin, which is a colorless, odorless, slightly sweet organic compound. It’s commonly used in hand creams and face creams because of its strong water-absorbing capacity, which helps lock in skin moisture and provides a natural barrier to repair skin wounds.

Making glycerin skincare products is quite simple. Let’s take a look:

Glycerin Toner

Mix glycerin and white vinegar in a 1:2 ratio, and you’ve created your own daily toner. This toner can nourish your skin, making it soft and even contributing to whitening effects with regular use.

Glycerin Honey Face Mask

Mix about 500ml of honey with approximately 300ml of glycerin and stir them thoroughly with mineral water. This simple homemade glycerin honey face mask is ready. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Prolonged use can effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines on your face, relieve roughness, and enhance moisture.

Glycerin Hand Cream

Glycerin is already an effective ingredient in hand creams. By adding urea, you can create a hand cream that’s just as effective as the commercial ones. It’s a quick and convenient solution for issues like hand cracking, especially in the autumn and winter seasons.

Vinegar and Astragalus Moisturizer

For those who have the means and time, you can try making a skincare product with a mixture of vinegar, astragalus, and glycerin. Although the texture may be somewhat thick, it doesn’t affect its feel. It’s excellent for moisturizing the skin. If you’re unsure, start with a patch test on your forearm or leg to check its moisturizing effects on your skin.

One thing I’d like to remind you of is that glycerin is photosensitive, which means that prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause it to oxidize and turn yellow. So, I recommend using these skincare products at night to prevent your skin from yellowing. That’s it for today’s sharing. If you liked it, give me a thumbs up! Rain or shine, I’ll be waiting for you in the next edition.
