Re: Skincare

@Brezzy1234 Are you leaving the micellar water on your skin?




What about micellar water cleansers?

These liquid cleansers resemble large bottles of makeup remover and are, in many ways, similar to water-based makeup removers that contain mild surfactants. “Micelles” are minute structures that have to do with how surfactants (that is, the cleansing ingredients) combine with water; it is a way to formulate a cleanser that interacts with oils and debris to wash them away. Micellar technology is effective, but nothing special. Other than ease of use, this type of cleanser doesn’t have a strong edge over others. Here’s how to use micellar water:

1. Apply the watery liquid to a cotton pad.
2. Gently stroke over the face (avoid pulling skin because, over time, that will cause skin to sag!), replacing each pad with a fresh one until you do not see any makeup or dirt on the pad.
3. With most micellar waters, the directions indicate that you don’t need to rinse, but because leaving even mild cleansing agents on skin for longer than necessary isn’t ideal, we strongly recommend following with a regular rinse-off cleanser or rinsing with plain tap water before doing the rest of your skincare routine.
