Glycerin has a neutral effect on your skin which makes it a good cleanser, especially if you have oily skin. It is natural and gentle on the skin, so it will remove the dirt and oil from your face without any side-effects.

Wash your face with cold water and pat it dry. Take some drops of glycerin into a cotton ball and massage in on your face. Let it absorb into the skin before washing it away. Use this every night instead of a face wash, for glowing skin.

The fastest and most effective way to fight sun tan is with glycerin. You can go for a glycerin, rosewater and lemon face pack for lighter, brighter skin.

Lemon is a natural bleaching agent, while rosewater has astringent properties which will tighten your pores. When combined with the nourishing properties of glycerin, this face pack will give you an even-toned skin.

Take 3 tablespoon of glycerin and add in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and rosewater each. Massage the mix onto your face and let it dry for 20 minutes. Wash it off with cold water. Do this once a week for a flawless complexion.

Glycerin is a humectant which means it draws water from the air and absorbs it into your skin keeping it hydrated. It even helps heal the cracks in your skin, maintaining its elasticity.

A glycerin and egg face mask will help you fight skin ageing faster. This is because the vitamin E in the eggs will prevent cell damage, giving you wrinkle-free skin.

Beat an egg till it is frothy and add 1 tablespoon of honey and 2 tablespoon of glycerin to it. Apply this mix onto your face and let it stay for 15 minutes. Rinse it off with cold water.

Doing this twice a week will keep your skin nourished and supple.
