“My skin is so oily, I can make French fries with it”
I often catch myself complaining to my beauty circle about how my oily skin never misses a single chance to embarrass me, be it on date nights, weddings (where I could find myself a prospect date) or even at work. Blotting sheets were my biggest saviour… until I discovered a genius cleansing hack to keep the oiliness at bay. It’s a product that has recently become a favourite amongst beauty influencers and celebrities. And, it can do wonders in removing your makeup and leaving your skin absolutely cleansed at the same time. Still haven’t guessed it? We’re talking about Micellar Water!
Even though micellar water has been around for a while now, it still remains to be one of the most underrated products. You’ll be surprised to know that this miracle product is your rescue agent for oily skin. Since micellar water is powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules, it acts as a magnet that helps lift grime, oil and makeup from the skin.
The best part about using micellar water in your everyday skincare routine is that you don’t have to apply-and-rinse. All you need to do is soak one cotton pad in micellar water and wipe the pad across your face. Yes, it’s that simple! If you have oily skin, we suggest you use the Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water, which is enriched with Vitamin C, B3 and triple purified water and helps remove contaminants known to irritate skin.
Make sure that you cleanse twice a day, morning and evening. And, on days when you have a little extra time at hand, don’t hesitate to double cleanse. Follow up the micellar water cleanse with a face wash. You can try the Ponds Oil Control Face Wash to get rid of oil and to banish dull and tired-looking skin. Doing so will cleanse your skin thoroughly, absorb excess oil and leave you with a shine-free complexion. Win-win!
