After bathing, I usually apply a little glycerin on my skin and let it absorb while I apply the face creams. Leaves skin super beautiful, with a natural glow and super nourished. It dissolves easily in water or alcohol but not in oils.



If you want to apply glycerin topically (on the face), it is recommended to use it dissolved in water, since in a concentrated way it can irritate the most sensitive skin, such as those of people suffering from diabetes. Hydrated skin has a beautiful appearance, but if left on for very long periods it could over-hydrate the skin. It is better to apply a small amount so that it absorbs well.

Although some do not know it, glycerin is consumed in foods such as ice cream, chocolates, pasta or sugar doughs such as fondant or gum paste. In these foods, its consumption is safe because small amounts are used. If ingested in amounts much greater than these, it can cause dizziness, nausea, headache, and even mental confusion.
