Dermatologists Reveal the Key to Healthy Skin in the City
Find out more about glycerin, a moisturizing powerhouse that can be your secret weapon in the fight against air pollution.
Air pollution is unfortunately a common problem in cities around the world, and harmful pollutants in the air have been found to cause a 60% increase in skin dryness after just seven days of exposure. The result? Dull, dry skin. When you’re surrounded by polluted air every day, achieving healthy and clear skin can seem like a daunting challenge.
Thankfully, dermatologists may have discovered a key ingredient that could be the solution to your skin problems: glycerin.
What is Glycerin and What Makes It Special?
Glycerin is a colorless, clear liquid that is a top ingredient used in many skin care products.
If you are wondering why it is so popular, the answer lies in its impressive abilities! For one, glycerin is a humectant. What this means is that it acts like a sponge to attract and pull moisture into the skin. Research has shown that face cleansers with glycerin not only remove dirt and grime, but also hydrate the skin and reduce dryness, making soft and smooth skin a reality.
This moisturizing dynamo can be a miracle ingredient for city girls who are affected by air pollution, as it restores and protects the skin’s barrier. Always dreamed of having a clear and smooth complexion? Studies show that face cleansers containing glycerin could help reduce facial roughness, leaving behind naturally silky-smooth skin.
Kesh Gunasinghe, Beauty R&D Lead, Johnson & Johnson APAC, advises, "Look for an ingredient like glycerin because it is able to nourish the skin and help with the removal [of micro pollutants]. Make sure it is on your ingredient list and [that] it’s as high on the ingredient list as you can find."
Glycerin as a Top Ingredient
And that’s what you’ll find with Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser, the first glycerin-based foaming cleanser. Take a look at the ingredient list and you'll notice that glycerin makes up the highest percentage of Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser, which is one-third of the product!
