What is micellar water?
Micellar Water first originated in French pharmacies and only arrived in the UK in 2013, and since then has become a fan favourite in the cosmetic industry and can easily be incorporated into any skincare routine.
Micellar Water is made up of purified water, moisturisers, and cleansing molecules called ‘Micelles’ which help to attract dirt and oil and draw out any impurities from the skins surface.
The product itself looks just like normal water, but if you apply a little to your fingers, you’ll notice it has a completely different texture.
The little ‘Micelles’ that create this unique texture are drawn to your make-up like a magnet, removing all traces and helping to leave skin feeling refreshed and squeaky clean.
How to use micellar water
Using Micellar Water is an effective way to remove makeup, dirt and oil.
Some people use Micellar Water as their primary cleanser, whilst others prefer to use it as a toner after cleansing.
Simply take a cotton pad and apply enough product so it feels wet but not soaked, then gently sweep across your face to remove make-up and any impurities.
Micellar Water is gentle enough to use across your eyes and lips.
The many advantages of using Micellar Water make it a definite worthwhile addition to your skincare routine.
