Has your face ever felt dry or tight after using a facial cleanser? Did it feel like your skin was clean but was sapped of moisture? The reason may not have been your cleanser, but your water. Most people use regular unfiltered tap water to clean their face, and unfiltered water may contain minerals that can strip the natural oils from your face. So, what is the solution? Easy! A product that cleans effectively, does not require rinsing, and is gentle enough to use every day. In short, micellar water!
So how does it work? Micellar water contains micelle molecules that work by binding themselves to dirt, makeup, and other contaminants found on the surface of our skin. All types of makeup, including waterproof makeup and eye makeup, can be removed easily, effectively, and gently, without irritating even the most sensitive skin. When a cotton ball or cotton pad is moistened with micellar water and wiped over skin, dirt and contaminants are removed without rinsing and stripping the essential oils from your skin.
My favorite micellar water product is Avon’s Anew Hydra Fusion Cleansing Micellar Water. Its formula is oil free, alcohol free, dermatologist and allergy tested, hypoallergenic, and infused with ingredients that work together to help maintain hydration and provide moisture. It does a great job removing all my makeup, and since I do not have to rinse my face after using it, the hydrating ingredients stay on my skin, keeping it from feeling dried out. An added bonus is the price, which is extremely affordable and cheaper than many cleansers that are not as effective and do not have the ability to hydrate and protect like this product. If your skin needs more hydration, pair this cleanser with the other Hydra Fusion products available from Avon. They work great together to give you the great, healthy skin you deserve!
Quick tip: use micellar water to clean your face between reapplying sunscreen!
