What Is Micellar Water, How Does It Work, and Why Should I Use It For My Skin?

What Is Micellar Water, How Does It Work, and Why Should I Use It For My Skin?

For starters, it means you don’t have to scrub hard to take off dirt or makeup.

 For the longest time, micellar water was an insider-secret staple in France. This was because of the country’s struggle with the skin-stripping effect of hard water.

Today, micellar water has secured a solid spot on every beauty shelf globally. If you have sensitive skin, you know that the number 1 thing that can make it drier is water.  Washing with soap and water can strip your skin, leaving behind harsh chemicals.

 That’s the reason micellar water is such a game-changer in skincare.  Without a doubt, we all love micellar water for its ability to gently cleanse and melt off deep-set makeup in just a few seconds.

But what exactly is micellar and what makes it so special?

What is Micellar Water?

Micellar water contains microparticles known as micelles that trap dirt, everyday grime, and makeup on your skin’s surface. It then lifts them away without drying your skin.

It’s a super-gentle formula infused with hydrating ingredients and mild cleansers that break down oil. Micellar water looks and feels like water without the need to rinse after use.

The tiny balls act as a magnet to draw out impurities and lift them away to reveal a clean and refreshed skin complexion.

How is Micellar Water Different from Toners and Other Cleansers?

The main use of micellar water is to remove skin impurities and makeup. Whereas, a toner is designed to restore your skin’s pH balance after you’ve cleansed.

Both micellar water and toner have a similar look in terms of watery consistency. You usually sweep it onto your skin using an absorbent cotton ball or pad to soak up dirt.

Unlike many toners, micellar water doesn’t contain alcohol or leave a stinging sensation. When you put it on your finger, it has a slightly thicker and slippery texture.

Why Should You Use Micellar Water For Your Skin?

You may be wondering why you need to use micellar water when there are regular cleansers available. Harsh soaps strip your skin of its natural proteins and oil. But micellar water maintains that barrier to keep the balance and health intact.

Micellar water is great for getting rid of makeup, oil and dirt without the dry, dull skin afterward. You can use it as an all-in-one makeup remover, facial wash, and moisturizer.

 However, if you have oily or acne-prone skin, you still need a gentle cleanser like our Clear Skin Acne Facial Wash. It helps to take care of the grime and gunk hiding deep in your pores. Think of micellar water as the first step for a double-cleansing routine.
