Janhvi Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra haven’t shared the sets of a film yet. But the two have something else in common that’s just as powerful. Both of them are profoundly fascinated by skincare — all things DIY included. Their paths cross when they pick their ingredients. I’m talking about rosewater and glycerin; both regarded as the finest members of any age-old nuskas.
But the actors don’t use them the same way. Let’s find out more about the nature of these ingredients.
How Janhvi & Priyanka Use The Solution For Their Skin
Janhvi simply mixes both rosewater and glycerin and applies a few drops of the solution to the skin right before sleeping. Priyanka, on the other hand, adds a few drops of both to some sea salt to create a lip scrub.
What Makes The Two A Powerful Pair?
A rosewater-glycerin solution borrows from the best of both ingredients.
Rosewater’s anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and anti-bacterial properties can counter inflammation, redness, swelling, and puffiness. Janhvi’s DIY possibly treats under-eye puffiness as well as inflammation associated with acne and rosacea.
It can even impart a more youthful glow to your skin since it’s an astringent. This indicates that it can tighten and tone the skin subtly. And because it’s an antioxidant, it diminishes lines and wrinkles ever so slightly.
Rosewater cleanses the skin from the inside out and balances the natural oils of the skin. It hydrates areas that are dry and minimises oiliness in areas that are oily. Even dry, flaky lips begin to take on a pinkish hue post-application.
Glycerin is a humectant that attracts and infuses the skin with moisture; further amplifying the ultra-soothing, ultra-hydrating abilities of rosewater. This enhances the resilience of the skin’s barrier since glycerin replenishes all that lost moisture. This, inadvertently, smoothes over lines, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing; which enhances rosewater’s anti-ageing prospects.
Glycerin’s anti-microbial properties indicate that it can heal wounds, redness, and inflammation and seal any cracks and flakiness in the lips; just like rosewater.
Remember that glycerin, though effective, ought to be diluted before application or it can sting and irritate the skin.
Now you see how it all connects. The two complement one another so well. You can even refrigerate the solution for better results.
