Most people take care of their facial skin but ignore their hands. But my mom is a believer in skin care from tip to toe. Therefore, even before the onset of cold weather, she makes a glycerine moisturizer (homemade glycerine moisturizer). Let’s get acquainted with its advantages.

To make a glycerin moisturizer, she takes one teaspoon of glycerin, two teaspoons of rose water, one teaspoon of coconut oil, and one teaspoon of almond oil.

Just mom’s homemade glycerin moisturizer is ready. By keeping it in the fridge, he uses it on his hands for a long time. She massages her hands with it every night.
But is this homemade glycerin moisturizer really beneficial? We caught up with celebrity beautician Dr Monica Kapoor to find out. He talked about the amazing benefits of glycerin for the skin.
Dr Kapoor says, “Before I talk about the benefits of glycerin, let us know what it is. Glycerin is a by-product of the soap making process. This sugar and alcohol, organic compounds derived from both plant and animal sources. It is widely used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Glycerin is a non-toxic, odorless and colorless natural humectant. Which acts as a great conditioner and helps retain moisture in the skin.”
Here’s how glycerin benefits your skin

Thanks to the coconut oil present in the glycerin cream, the epidermal layer of the skin thickens. Thanks to this, chemicals do not reach the skin and the skin of the hands remains healthy.
