Natural Wrinkle Treatments Glycerine & Geranium

With emphasis on Glycerine I wanted to add an anti-wrinkle recipe that would be easy and quick to create while bringing maximum benefits to the skin.
I’ve added an excerpt from living strong on the benefits of Glycerine See Below
Glycerine & Geranium Wrinkle Treatment: 3 teaspoons  vegetable glycerine, 1 egg yolk, 3 teaspoons geranium water,  blend well apply to clean face for 15 minutes.

Natural Glyerine Soap

Wash face with a good natural soap, natural glycerine soap that is. The soaps we apply to our skin are as important as the skin treatments used.
Rinse with Cold Rose Water. 
Store any remaining in an air tight container for the next day this will not keep long, add a splash of lemon juice as a preservative, skin brightner before storage. 
Some people think that Glycerine soaps are only the clear soaps but in reality all soaps are glycerine until the glycerine is extracted and sold back to us. This is why most soaps are called everything but soap.

Glycerin is a natural by product of the soap making process, all natural soaps contain glyerine.

Glycerin, or glycol, is a colorless or yellow sugar alcohol with the consistency of syrup that is extracted from natural sources or synthesized. It’s used as an antifreeze and a sweetener and in making explosives, inks and lubricants. Since the mid-19th century, it’s also been included in skin and hair care products due to its moisturizing and protective benefits.

Atopic Dermatitis Treatment

 

Atopic dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin that causes scaliness, itching and rashes. In a placebo-controlled, double-blind study at the Friedrich Schiller University Department of Dermatology in 2008, researchers investigated the effects of glycerin on atopic dermatitis on human subjects who were treated twice daily for four weeks. The patients receiving the glycerin showed significant improvement in the hydration of the outer layer of skin, and the skin’s normal protective barrier function was restored.
Skin graft tissues used to treat burn victims are often stored in concentrations of glycerol. In a report published in the March 2008 issue of the journal Burns, it was shown that the higher the concentration of glycerol and the longer the tissues were stored in the medium, the more the skin grafts were able to fight off bacterial infections that often affect such grafts. The researchers concluded that glycerol has an antimicrobial effect.Skin Cells
In research published in December 2003 in The Journal of Investigative Dermatology, scientists reported that glycerol works as a signal to help direct skin cells through their four normal stages of maturity. This is important for people with diseases such as psoriasis and non-melanoma skin cancers that result from abnormal proliferation and maturation of skin cells, as it demonstrates that glycerol may be useful to assist in healing skin wounds.Skin Elasticity
Another benefit of glycerin is that it helps make skin more supple. A study in Denmark in 2003 showed that skin elasticity was improved even after only a 10-minute application of glycerin. Additional research in Germany also used oral glycerin supplements to fully restore the reduced skin elasticity in mice with damaged skin.    Moisturizer                
The primary use of glycerin for the skin is as a moisturizer for dry, rough or scaly skin. Various studies, such as one conducted in 2002 on patients with eczema in Sweden, have clearly demonstrated that glycerin has humectant properties, drawing water into the outer layer of the skin.IrritantsIt’s been known in scientific circles for years that glycerol protects skin against irritation. In a study published in the journal Dermatology in 1998, researchers pretreated skin with several irritating substances and then applied glycerol to the area under an air-tight and water-tight dressing. The glycerol staved off any negative effects from the irritations, provided a significant improvement of the protective barrier function in the skin and caused skin cells to regenerate.
Bruising and Swelling
Glycerin also helps promote skin regeneration in skin that is bruised and swollen. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, a product containing glycerin provided a reduction in the severity and duration of bruising with just one application in 65 percent of the patients in the study.
