Today’s post is all about the trendiest skincare in the market – Micellar Water!
Most likely, you must have heard of micellar water by now and those of you who hasn’t – it’s time to add it to your beauty glossary, right now!
What is Micellar Water?
Micellar water was first developed in Paris. A gentle way to cleanse your skin, it is composed of microscopically small molecules called micelles which, like magnet, have a tendency to attract dirt particles, make up and oil. So, while the micelles attract the impurities from the skin, water helps in keeping the skin hydrated – what more to ask of a facial cleanser!
How to use?
Different Uses of Micellar Water
- Remove Make-up
Ever came home exhausted from a party, just wanting to crash in your bed without having to worry about removing make-up and cleaning your face?!
Well, keep a bottle of Micellar water and some cotton pads by your bedside and there you go! The best part of using it is to not to have to rinse your face afterwards.
While some user reviews still complain about how Micellar water doesn’t remove heavy foundations or waterproof mascara and for that we recommend using our all natural makeup remover.
Micellar water comes really handy while travelling as it saves you the burden of carrying a separate bottle of toner, moisturiser and a cleanser depending on your skin type. And again, night skincare regime becomes a task specially when you are on a holiday (atleast for me) where you want to jump to efficient, quicker and convenient ways to clean your skin.
- Cleaning makeup brushes
As already explained how micelles act like a magnet in attracting dirt particles, makeup and impurities so the water makes a great makeup brush cleanser. However, we do recommend a cheap and deep cleaning method for the brushes fortnightly here.
While there are numerous variants available in the market, we recommend Garnier Micellar Water as suggested by A here.
