Some of the latest beauty trends and fads have gotten a little extreme.
From microdermabrasion to laser skin treatments, to cryogenically freezing your skin to treat acne, it’s starting to look like things are going a bit too far in the beauty world.
That’s why the latest craze in beauty has got us so excited. You don’t have to bathe in goat’s milk or cover yourself in honey to take advantage of this beauty regimen; you just need water – micellar water.
This one-step wonder is simple, gentle and works wonders at makeup removal and cleansing. It is soap-free and looks and feels just like water because it is. The water contains molecules, called micelle molecules, that gently lift oils and makeup from the skin without the need for any scrubbing or rinsing; just a swipe with a cotton pad.
Here we are going to look at seven reasons you need to add micellar water to your skincare arsenal, and what this magical water can do for you.
Simply the Best Makeup Removal, Ever!
The micelle molecules are actually a fatty oil themselves, and oil attracts oil. The molecules act like tiny magnets, gently pulling oil, dirt, and makeup from the skin without any need to rub, scrub or wash. With just one swipe, you will quickly and effectively clean your skin, and be left with a fresh and fully cleansed feeling; no tightening or dryness, or inflammation.
Works for Any Skin Type
Micellar water was originally developed for Parisian women who struggled to cleanse their skin and remove makeup with the region’s harsh water supply. The water is incredibly mild, doesn’t irritate the skin, and can be used on any skin type. You should read this first before buying it for a more in-depth look at micellar water and how it is made.
It Keeps Skin Clear After Use
Because you don’t need to rub, scrub and rinse with micellar water, your skin is left fresh looking and feeling, with no redness or irritation caused by a washcloth or tap water. Micellar water cleanses the skin of oils and waxes, as well as dead skin cells, without leaving any residue that must be washed away or rubbed into the skin.
It Hydrates and Nourishes Skin as it Cleanses
The water is soap-free, alcohol-free and chemical-free. There are no detergents or salts that dry your skin like some other products. After using micellar water, you are left feeling clean, your skin will have a fresh and almost dewy appearance, and it will be fully hydrated and nourished.
The Perfect Traveling Companion
If you are using micellar water, you no longer need a collection of cleansers, toners, and makeup removers. The one bottle and a few cotton pads are all you need to clean and tone your skin and remove any makeup. You can fit a small bottle and some pads in even the smallest clutch purse.
No More Wipes
Face wipes are one of the worst trends in beauty. Their convenience comes at an incredible cost, and not just to your pocket, but to the planet too. The material they are made from can sometimes be abrasive too and irritate the skin. Say goodbye to wipes and hello to micellar water.
Save Time and Effort with Micellar Water
The best thing about using micellar water is how simple, quick and easy it is to use. You can halve the time you spend removing makeup and cleansing. Just one swipe will usually do the job unless you have been wearing heavy makeup and it takes a few swipes to remove it.
If you make the switch to micellar water, you will instantly see why it is taking the skincare world by storm. It is simple to use, inexpensive to buy and saves your skin from the harsh irritation of soap and chemical-based cleansing.
