If you have ever used micellar water to clean your face and get rid of all the makeup you probably know what the fuss is all about. But if you haven’t let us tell you that it is touted as one of the best ways to cleanse your skin by skin specialists. The best part being it eliminates the need for real water! So is micellar water your answer to healthy and perfect skin? We find out...
How does it work?
Originally developed in the 90s to help Parisian women protect their skin from the region’s harsh water, micellar water is a French beauty secret. It is made up of micelles which are tiny cleansing molecules suspended into water. These tiny molecules work like magnets to attract dirt, oil and makeup and take it all off in a single swipe when applied to the skin using a cotton pad.
Why is it so popular?
While convenience is the most important factor for the popularity of micellar water because it eliminates the need of water to wash your face, that’s not all. In a world of elaborate and multiple steps beauty routines micellar water reduces one of the most important steps – cleansing by half. Formulated with gentle and mild surfactants it is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
How is it beneficial for your skin?
Unlike foaming cleansers that disrupt the natural pH of the skin, the tiny molecules in micellar water are quite hydrating and mild on the skin. Apart from removing makeup, micellar water can also be used as a quick pick-me-up after a heavy workout session at the gym, when you go camping or for a mid-flight boost. The super refreshing formula of the Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water boosts skin’s hydration by 90%, is triple purified, and enriched with vitamins.
