Kriti Sanon is one name that has been making waves in the industry lately. From her National Award for her brilliant performance in Mimi to her quippy videos with Tiger Shroff. I’ve been invested in her life, especially her skincare routine. So when she dropped a brand new video about her morning skincare, I knew I had to cover it.
While she does follow all the basics most celebrities do – ice facials, detoxifying face masks and cooling eye patches – there is one thing that stood out in the routine. Before she goes in with any serums or moisturisers, she likes to use a homemade concoction of rose water and glycerin.
5 Ways To Incorporate Glycerin Into Your Routine
Glycerin, as Sanon rightly says, is a superstar ingredient that grabs moisture from the air and locks it in the skin. It also helps your skin heal and stay protected, and is the ultimate skincare hack to keep your sensitive skin smooth without irritation.
The first way to incorporate glycerin is by using it in your toner. Kriti likes to mix equal parts organic rose water and glycerin and spray it on her face before applying any heavy products. In case you feel like you don’t have the time or the energy to do this two-step hack, you can also go in with the Lakme Absolute Pore Fix Toner which contains witch hazel, lavender, as well as glycerin.
Another good toning serum with glycerin is the COSRX Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence. This toner is a hands-on product that treats uneven skin tone as well as damaged skin. It also increases cell turnover rate for brighter skin and works wonderfully on any skin type.
Next, let’s talk serums. I really love the SNP Peptaronic Serum. It’s one of those products that’s truly a pleasure to use and gives effective results in under a week. My skin has never felt plumper or looked brighter.
A great trick to make sure your makeup does not crease or flake is to use a primer with glycerin in it. The Laneige Glowy Makeup Serum is a two-in-one product that primes and hydrates your skin so that your makeup stays on all day. The glycerin helps smoothen your skin and locks in moisture for a glowy base.
Lastly, I wanted to give you guys an option to make your own DIYs with glycerin. The Wishcare Pure & Unscented Glycerin is what it says – a plain old bottle of good-quality glycerin. You can mix this with a variety of different ingredients like rosewater for hydration or lemon juice for an anti-acne DIY.
Whether it’s through toners, serums, primers, or DIY concoctions – integrating glycerin into your regimen can be a game-changer, and it’s high time you jump onto this bandwagon!
