Should You Include Micellar Water in Your Beauty Routine?
Micellar water for beauty has become a fairly popular addition to the skincare scene. This super-charged product is enhanced with molecules that promise to clean your skin by attracting and trapping oil, dirt and makeup to leave clean skin and a bit of moisture behind.
How Does Micellar Water Work as Part of a Beauty Routine?
According to Dr. Susan Obagi, micellar water binds to the makeup and dirt, and takes it away. It leaves skin feeling moisturized and refreshed, because it leaves a thin coating of oil behind.
One end of the cleansing molecule attracts water, while the other attracts the oil and grease from your skin. When you apply it to a cotton pad, the water soaks into the pad and leaves the oil attracting end of the molecule free to grab the dirt and makeup that’s left on your skin after a long day. It requires no rinsing, so it may even help to speed up your end-of-the-day skincare routine.
It works for all skin types, especially sensitive skin, partly because it is alcohol free. It’s easy to use and allows you to rub your skin less, which is good for sensitive areas like under the eyes. Some warn though that you may need a separate eye makeup remover, particularly if you wear waterproof makeup.
4 Ways to Include Micellar Water in Your Beauty Routine
It would be easy to dismiss micellar water as a fad in the beauty industry, except that there are many different ways to add this product to your skincare routine, whether you’re at home or on the go.
1. Clean Your Skin.
Because it is gentle and thorough, attracting oil, dirt and makeup, micellar water is great as a cleanser. You may want to want to switch between regular cleanser and micellar water every once in a while, to ensure that you continually get your face clean, simply because it does leave a bit of oil behind.
2. Freshen Your Makeup or Wash Your Face on the Go.
Since you don’t need to rinse this product away, it’s a great option for refreshing your makeup when you’re traveling or throughout the day.
3. Clean Your Makeup Brushes.
Because micellar water is made to remove oil and dirt, it is a great option to take old makeup and dirt off of the brushes you use to apply your makeup.
4. Remove Your Makeup in a Single Step.
Whether you’re removing makeup because of an oops, or you’re getting ready to end your day, Micellar water is a great option to take it off and leave clean, fresh skin behind.
