Want to know the ultimate French women's skincare secret?
- Anat Edwy
Micellar Water became popular with French women, who began using it in the early 1900s. Back then, plumbing wasn't available everywhere, and the water in France was quite harsh on the skin and caused irritation and blemishes.
Micellar Water proved to be a much better alternative for cleansing the skin than the hard Parisian water, and French Women have been using it ever since.
So, what is Micellar Water?
Micellar Water is a facial cleanser that helps remove sweat, makeup, dirt and oil and helps keep the skin clear. It's gentle on the skin, doesn't require rinsing, and uses a unique technology different from other facial cleansers to help leave the skin feeling clean, soft and hydrated.
Micellar (pronounced my-sell-er) water combines purified water, hydrating ingredients, and natural surfactants (surfactants are used in skincare to break down and remove particles from our skin). The molecules of the surfactants from microscopic clumps are called micelles.
When cleaning the face with Micellar Water, the micelles attract dirt, oil and impurities and lift them from the surface of your skin. As a result, Micellar Water has exceptional cleansing and skin-balancing properties. In addition, it is soapless and alcohol-free so that it won't sting, irritate or dry out your skin.
Micellar Water is a multi-purpose product. Because of its structure and unique ingredients, it cleanses, tones, and balances the skin and is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
'It's All Good' Micellar Water contains a unique type of essential oil - Geranium Bourbon. Besides having a beautiful smell, it balances the skin's natural oil production, promotes cell regeneration, and has anti-aging properties. In addition, it is known to improve scar healing, enhance immunity and relieve stress.
What to use after you've cleaned your face with Micellar Water?
If you're using multiple layers of products such as SPF and makeup, we recommend using a Konjac Sponge for deeper cleansing - The double cleansing method.
And finish your routine with your choice of serum or face oil.
