Although crucial for healthy skin, cleansing is the step most people do completely wrong with terrible outcomes ranging from skin dryness to redness and irritation.
Can you believe that?
The two most common mistakes:
- Overdoing it. You don’t need to wash your face more than twice a day. If you don’t wear makeup once a day is even better.
- Using harsh foaming products or nothing at all. This can lead to skin dryness and damages to the barrier which turn into more skin dryness (when the barrier is damaged the skin can’t keep moisture inside). Using the wrong products include using the same products you use for the body (body washes or even shampoos).
What is micellar water?
Micellar water is a diluted cleanser.
Not just that. It’s the perfect balance between cleaning power and mildness.
Even if diluted, it still removes pollutants and other impurities. How about makeup? Yes, that too. Take a look at this.
Micellar water does not need to be rinsed off– simply apply some of it with a cotton pad and gentle motion.
If you’re new to this kind of cleanser, it might feels weird not to rinse it off. But trust me that’s actually an advantage.
In fact this micellar water is enriched with other skin hydrating and anti-aging ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. So leaving it on is a good thing for your skin!
Ditch harsh foaming cleansers and yes even those that claim to be “gentle”.
You’ll see the difference right away. Skin feels soft and hydrated- even if you don’t have time to apply serum or moisturizers because you know..life happens.
Especially if you have sensitive skin prone to redness this micellar water must be the staple of your skincare regimen.
