Bird's Nest Nutri-Collagen and Whitening Cleanser by Bio-essence. A facial cleanser with glycerin
Glycerin, sometimes called glycerol, is a clear, colourless, and viscous liquid that tastes sweet.
So is it good or bad for our skin?
Yes, glycerin is generally good for our skin.
Unlike the other so-called moisturizers that work by clogging your pores, glycerin works in a different way.
When applied, glycerin forms a thin layer on our skin. As glycerin is a humectant (a substance that absorbs ambient moisture), it absorbs moisture from the surroundings and your lower dermis, to you upper epidermis (the section of your skin most susceptible to moisture loss)
Glycerin is also a skin-identical substance (substances that are found naturally in our skin). Owing to that fact, you don't need to worry about glycerin not being 'natural' enough.
In most cases, glycerin allows your pores to breathe freely. However, if glycerin is present in concentrations that are too high, it might cause a little bit of problem for your pores.
Just make sure you don't overuse your moisturizers that contain glycerin by spamming them all over your face.
So let's ditch mineral oil and opt for glycerin instead!
That's all I have to say for this post. Thanks for reading! And please introduce this blog to your friends! :D
