The name ‘ cleansing water’ may seem weird. Of course water helps cleanse the skin, so why is there a product called Micellar Cleansing Water?
Cleansing water is also known as micellar water. It is not only just plain water. It is a skin care product which helps clean your skin of dirt, grime and make up without the need of water or any soap. With cleansing water, you do not need to use any soap or rinse your skin with it. Just apply it on a cotton pad and rub it on your skin. It is infused with oil molecules called micelles which do not make the skin greasy. Instead it absorbs the oil and grime from the skin without smearing it all over your face. Cleansing water is a three-in-one product which is a cleanser, a toner and a make up remover. It is safe for all skin types.
When you use cleansing water, you do not need to wash your face with water afterwards. Your skin is good to go.
Here are some of the uses and benefits of cleansing water:
- Effective Make Up Remover
Micelle molecules in the cleansing water are fatty. However, they are not greasy and do not add more oil to your skin. It attracts the dirt, makeup and excessive sebum from your face without having a burning or tingling sensation on your skin. It leaves your face with a completely fresh and clean feel.
- Hydrates And Nourishes The Skin
Using soap and alcohol based face washes can strip your skin of its natural oil and glow. Sometimes, even if you neglect on using soaps or face washes on your face, water, on its own, may not do a good job of keeping your face clean and grime free. However with micellar cleansing water, it leaves your skin not only hydrated but also clean and soft.
- For All Skin Types
Cleansing water was originally made for Parisian women because of the harshness of the water. Their water was full of minerals that irritated their face. Whereas micellar cleansing water is mild and doesn’t irritate the skin because it is made with soft water, meaning it has low concentrations of minerals. It is suitable for many skin types, especially sensitive skin.
- Keeps The Skin Clear And Grime Free
Cleansing water contains cleansing agents. It helps clear the skin of sebum and acne causing substances. This helps keep your skin clear, soft and there is no redness. You don’t need to excessively rub the cleansing water on your skin.
- Practical And Easy To Use
Cleansing water is very practical. Don’t have water? Use cleansing water. Need a toner to clean and hydrate your skin? Use cleansing water. Plus, using it is very easy. You don’t need to follow any step by step procedures. Just take a cotton pad, put some cleansing water on it and wipe it across your face. It pulls all the oil, grime and make up off of your face in an instant.
