Being a humectant, glycerin is used as a moisturiser for your skin. It proves to be useful when it comes to absorbing and retaining moisture within the skin which gives an added level of hydration. Glycerin is also anti-bacterial in nature which makes it ideal to treat scarring and pimples. It penetrates through the layers of the skin to kill bacteria and heal damaged tissue. As the compound is also non-toxic and promotes skin softening, glycerin can be used effectively as a treatment to soothe and heal dry and itchy skin.
