When suggesting to add micellar water in your skin care routine, we do not mean you have to begin a new skin care routine with this, eradicating all of your old makeup cosmetics and lotions. Well, micellar water should be an addition or compliment to your existing skin care routine such that it adds to the beauty of your skin.
Now, before learning its perks, it is important to know the definition and basics related to micellar water.
Micellar water, originating from France and popularized by Parisians, is a kind of water that is devoid of any chemical composition which only contains tiny micelles or molecule-like structures.
When applied on the skin, these micelles act like a magnet and extract all the dust and dirt particles from the skin. In one word, micellar water can be called a cleanser, toner or makeup remover and its role and effectiveness depends completely on when and how it is used.
Previously getting micellar water in India was a challenge; but of late, many posh brands have come out with mini bottles of this liquid which you can get to experiment and, on successful results, continue using it regularly in your skin care routine.
As A Makeup Remover
As mentioned earlier, the tiny micellar or molecule-like particles in this water act like a magnet on the skin. So, when you take it in a cotton pad and apply all over your face and skin, most of the makeup gets removed at one go. Irrespective of your skin types, you can use micellar water as the first beauty ingredient on your skin and face, when it comes to makeup removal. Micellar water can remove waterproof makeup without rubbing or scratching at it.
Face And Skin Cleanser During Travelling
Exactly how you use a hand sanitizer during travelling when you don't have tap water, you can micellar water for face cleansing anytime and anywhere. Just take a gentle scoop of it on a cotton pad and apply it all over your face and skin. You do not have to overdampen your face with micellar water to get its benefits. Also, after applying, the water dries off very fast and does not make it a messy business.
Start And End Your Day With Micellar Water
When you use micellar water at the beginning and end of the day, then you are using it as a toner. Wake up in the morning and for using micellar water, you can even skip on your usual soap-based cleaning session. Also, before going to sleep, use it to rejuvenate your face and skin from all the day's dirt and pollution. This also helps to maintain the physiological balance of your skin.
Treating Skin Outbursts At A Minor Stage
You can use micellar water for treating any kind of a rash, burn or irritation on your skin, especially at the initial stage. The micellar water soothes the affected area and helps in healing it. However, if it is a massive skin disorder, do not experiment with micellar water and it is better you head to a dermatologist.
Natural Moisturizer To The Skin
Micellar water is extra beneficial for those with dry and sensitive skin. That is because the water keeps the skin hydrated and moisturized. For continuous and best results, you have to continue using micellar water in your skin care routing daily. In case of oily skin, micellar water sweeps the extra oil and helps the skin to shrink its pores, thereby controlling the excess oil secretion.
