It goes without saying that winter months are not kind to our skin. Anyone with already dry skin can agree that the reduced moisture in the outdoor air combined with dry indoor heat due to furnaces and central air makes our skin even drier and flakier. The increased dryness in the air means that we have to add the moisture we need manually, ideally with professional-grade creams made with clean ingredients.
While many people seek skincare products to help with the appearance of their skin; reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pore size, there is a much bigger reason to look after your skin than looking youthful. (Although a good skincare routine helps with that too!) The appearance of your skin is one of the first things that is noticed about you, it’s the largest organ in your body. The top layer of your skin, the epidermis, is also the organ that comes into most contact with the rest of the world – everything you touch, the pollutants or elements in the air – your skin is exposed to all of that, and protects the rest of your organs from it. Your skin locks moisture in and harmful elements out. Skin cells protect against infection-causing microbes and bacteria found on common surfaces and cleaning products, but are also highly susceptible to dryness and damage.
Why dryness is a threat to your skin and your health
The outer layer of your skin is a reflection of what’s going on underneath. Dry and flaky skin is more vulnerable and less effective in doing its job – protecting your inner organs from outside elements. Damage to skin cells can begin days before any kind of dryness becomes visible, so if you’re seeing dryness on the outside, it means that your skin has already been moisture-deprived from the inside for far too long. Healthy skin feels comfortable and looks radiant. With a good skincare regiment using clean products, you can restore moisture to your skin, allow it to look beautiful and smooth, and do its job.
Gly Miracle® – the solution to dry skin that has stood the test of time
GLY MIRACLE® products are the best solution to replenishing the moisture that your skin is missing out on over the winter months. GLY MIRACLE® is a trusted skincare brand that has been in operation for over 30 years. The primary compound of water and glycerin came to the rescue, and Gly Miracle® was born. It was initially introduced to beauty salons and cosmetic retailers in 1992 to treat extremely dry, itchy, flaking, and painful skin conditions and it was a success for estheticians, medical professionals, patients and customers online. Nowadays, it can be bought online.
GlyMiracle® products are made with pure glycerin as the main ingredient. Glycerin is a humectant, a type of moisturizing agent that pulls water into the outer layer of your skin from deeper levels of your skin and the air. It helps repair, nourish and replenish rough and irritated skin to radiant smoothness.
It is one of those wonder products that work like magic on so many painful (and embarrassing) skin conditions. It’s ideal in winter months, as it provides adequate protection against harsh winds and frostbite and prevents chapping.
In short, glycerin:
- Suits every skin type
- Helps replenish, retain and regulate your skin’s moisture content
- Is hygroscopic, which means it is able to bind moisture onto the outermost layer of our skin
- Is the perfect treatment for dry skin; has anti-itch and anti-microbial properties
- Strengthens the barrier function of the skin, helping to keep it youthful and healthy
- Can be used as a toner to remove oil and traces of dirt
- Fights wrinkles and dark spots, and tightens pores
- Accelerates the cellular renewal process.
- Can clear up acne caused by bacteria
- Is keratolytic, which means it breaks down the connections between dead skin cells; naturally exfoliating the skin and helping ingredients penetrate further
Just like exercising and eating healthy, caring for your skin is a major factor in maintaining overall health. GlyMiracle® products have stood the test of time, and made life-changing skin improvements for people all over the world
One product in particular that has proven to relieve numerous skin conditions is described below with listed ingredients
16 Ounce Pump
Packaged in a bottle with push pump for your convenience, this soothing cream will calm your skin from symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, and other dry skin on your face, hands, body, and cuticles. Use daily to ease cracked skin and flakiness and restore your skin to calm youthful, comfortable radiance.
GlyMiracle® on Honesty
GlyMiracle® prides itself on transparency, honesty, and your health as its primary concern. Many everyday ingredients are unknown to the general public, so for your convenience, we have provided you with a list of the ingredients found in GlyMiracle® products and an explanation of what they do, and how they improve your skin. One of the most misunderstood ingredients is Parabens.
Parabens are preservative ingredients used in cosmetics, personal hygiene products, food products, and pharmaceuticals. They are highly effective in preventing the growth of fungi, bacteria, and yeast that can cause products to spoil. Since Gly Miracle® products are rich in plant extracts, we consciously use trace amounts to protect the integrity and effectiveness of the products. (Good tolerability, highly researched, and good effects) The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to allow the use of methylparaben in various products, including foods.
Is a 95% pure and natural, fatty alcohol from Coconut Oil, (not alcohol at all like might be assumed)
A humectant (hydrating) and delivery ingredient used in small amounts to keep the product from melting in high heat or from freezing. It also helps active ingredients penetrate the skin. Because propylene glycol attracts water it functions to enhance the appearance of skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness. Propylene glycol is sometimes confused with ethylene glycol, as both have been used in antifreeze due to their low melting points. However, these are not the same substance.
Glyceryl Stearate (also called glyceryl monostearate)
Is derived from palm kernels, olives, or coconuts, and is an emollient that keeps products blended. In our product, it is used for its most common purpose — to bind moisture to the skin. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) includes Glyceryl Stearate in its list of direct food additives affirmed as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS).
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
Extracted from the leaves of the plant Aloe. Aloe Vera, as it is more commonly known, is a succulent plant that offers many benefits and is suited for all skin types, especially dry, damaged, broken, sensitive, and irritated skin. It offers anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, humectant, and soothing, anti-itch qualities for the skin. It has been used medicinally for several thousands of years in many cultures. Scientists have discovered over 200 nutritional substances in Aloe Barbadensis leaves, including 20 minerals, 20 amino acids, 12 vitamins, and active enzymes.
Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract
Commonly used to relieve inflammatory skin conditions and calm sensitive skin. It provides some antioxidant protection and can be used to soothe, moisturize and inhibit the growth of bacteria and has anti-allergenic properties.
Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) Extract
Is extracted from red seaweed (Chondrus Crispus), which is commonly called Irish Moss or Carrageenan Moss. The ingredient isn’t exactly Irish moss, though. Rather, it’s an extract from the plant that is a skin conditioning agent useful in the control of viscosity in an overall product. Due to it being a seaweed extract, it is packed full of vitamins and minerals which are vital to the maintenance of healthy skin.
Allantoin is extracted from the root of many plants, such as comfrey, horse chestnut, and bearberry. It is a non-irritating ingredient that softens and protects the skin and is widely considered beneficial as a supplement.
Alpha-tocopheryl acetate (ATA) is a specific form (synthetic) of vitamin E. It’s also known as tocopheryl acetate, tocopherol acetate, or vitamin E acetate. Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties.
Used as a surfactant (a compound that lowers the surface tension between two ingredients) and emulsifier (stabilizer). It is derived from Lauric Acid found naturally in various plant and animal fats and oils, (a major component of coconut oil and palm kernel oil) and is also a chemical mixture of sorbitol ethylene oxide. Polysorbate 20 can serve as a dispersing agent and mix oil and water, work as a solubilizer and stabilizer, act as a lubricator, and have a soothing effect on the skin.
A synthetic silicone oil that works in a variety of ways, namely as a conditioning agent, solvent, humectant, carrying agent, and viscosity-controlling agent. Like all other silicones, this ingredient has a unique fluidity that makes it easily spreadable. When applied to the skin and hair, it gives a silky & slippery feeling to the touch and acts as a mild water repellent by forming a protective barrier on the skin. It can also fill in fine lines/wrinkles, giving the face a temporary “plumper” look.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Derived from the vegetable sources of coconut and/or palm kernel oil. The oils can be split into glycerin and the component fatty acids, one of which is lauric acid. The lauric acid is isolated and then hydrogenated to form the lauryl alcohol. The lauryl alcohol is then combined with sulfur which then forms the salt, sodium lauryl sulfate. It serves as an emulsifier, helping oil-based and water-based ingredients to stay mixed.
A three-component compound of oleic acid and hexanol anhydrides derived from sorbitol. It functions as a surfactant and emulsifying agent.
Is an antimicrobial preservative that acts in releasing small amounts of formaldehyde. It is used in many cosmetics, skin care products, shampoos, and conditioners, as well as a wide range of products including bubble bath foam, baby wipes, and household detergents. It protects these personal care products from bacteria, yeast, and mold. Diazolidinyl does get a lot of bad press as a preservative because preservatives in general are proven to release formaldehyde. Although Diazolidinyl does release it, the amounts are too small to pose a threat to human health. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel considers Diazolidinyl Urea safe to be used in cosmetics up to a maximum concentration of 0.5%.
So…The next time you find yourself in a “dry skin” kind of situation, remember that there is a dedicated brand out there that’s got you covered, GlyMiracle®!
