We are sure you have come across the trending term micellar water; this is a true all-in-one beauty product as it not only removes makeup easily but also lifts away dirt and oil leaving your skin clean and refreshed but what exactly is micellar water? How do you use it? And are there any actual benefits to using this product? Here is the lowdown on micellar water.
When the standard soap and water just won’t cut it, leave it to the French to design a super fancy way to wash your face. Micellar water is a formula that uses tiny cleansing molecules (micelles) of oil suspended in water; it however has a different texture and feel to water and is the perfect way to cleanse your face when on the go as it does not require you to rinse your face. Micellar water can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one. The idea is that the micelles are attracted to dirt, oil and the entire gunk going on in your skin therefore able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin. It is recommended for everyone but more so for those with dry or super sensitive skin as it is very gentle and hydrating.
If your skin is more on the oily side or is acne prone, this may not be the best product for you as it might not give you the deep cleaning that you need so you may want to alternate between your regular facial cleanser and the micellar water for best results. The name may be all French-fancy but this product is very easy to use; simply pour out the product into a cotton ball then swipe the pad across your skin and you will see all the dirt and makeup residue from your skin transfer to the pad, no harsh rubbing or rinsing needed.
Besides cutting your wash time in half and being an effective makeup remover, the other benefits of using micellar water on your skin is that it actually hydrates and nourishes your skin leaving you hydrated with a glowy-dewy finish. The cleansing agent in micellar water naturally clears skin of sebum and wax-based substances which can cause breakouts. Hopefully this has given you more insight on how to use the product; once you try it we are pretty sure it will soon be a staple in your beauty regimen.
