It cleans, softens and purifies, thanks to the technology of micelles — particles that work like a magnet, attracting waste and dirt. Multifunctional, micellar water has conquered a captive place in the skincare routine. See just 4 reasons why you can’t live without it.
1. Gently cleanses and removes makeup: “Cleaning is one of the main functions of micellar water. With it, it is possible to eliminate all skin impurities, such as pollution, oil residues and even sunscreen”, says dermatologist Vanessa Perusso. “In this regard, it stands out for being very practical, as it does not foam and does not require rinsing after application. Just moisten a cotton ball with the solution and pass it over the face, ensuring a gentle, but still, deep cleaning” , assures the dermatologist.
2. Refreshes and soothes: “If the skin looks heavy in the middle of the day, presents greater production of sebum, cases of itching or redness, micellar water can be the best ally to bring freshness and immediate relief”, says the doctor. This is because, in addition to removing the layer of pollution, it also helps to soothe the skin.
3. Tones: “The product also acts as a tonic and its formula helps to rebalance the skin’s natural pH, making it more balanced and with less risk of presenting some sensitivity”, he says.
4. Moisturizes: Finally, micellar water also acts in favor of hydration, an essential part of care for all skin types. “The product helps in the replacement of natural moisture and creates a protective barrier against external aggressions”, he says.
