Is there anything that can make you feel more refreshed and relaxed than a soothing bath with an aromatic body wash gel, right after a tiring day at work? No, right? A good body wash, especially a homemade one, can literally make you relax and feel good. It instantly nourishes and moisturises your skin, thus making your body feel soft and supple.

You might wonder what difference does it make whether you use a body wash or soap, but, wait! There is a huge difference. The aroma, the softness, and the rich lather that a body wash offers to you can't be compared to what a soap can offer. A body wash does make for an alluring choice.

And, when you can make your very own body wash at home, there's nothing like it, as it is made using natural ingredients and is completely safe to use. Besides, homemade products are pocket-friendly and can be made without much fuss.

Speaking of homemade body wash, have you ever wondered what would it be like to make a glycerine-based body wash at home? But, before that, one needs to understand the importance of using glycerine for skin care.

Why Should You Use Glycerine For Skin Care

Glycerine is a very common ingredient used in making body washes, shower gels, and soaps. Glycerine keeps your skin moisturised and hydrated, which makes it a premium choice in homemade skin care products.

It works best for all skin types. Besides, glycerine is an effective remedy for dry skin. It keeps your skin soft and smooth. It also treats fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and pimples. It works as an anti-ageing agent and prevents premature ageing. It also improves your skin's elasticity and keeps it youthful and glowing.

What's more? Glycerine is also a natural toner for oily skin. It is non-greasy and helps to keep your skin toned without triggering the excess sebum production. It can also be used as a cleanser for your skin.
