Cleansing is a critical part of a functional skincare routine. It forms the foundation of healthy skin, allowing the other steps in your routine to take effect. If your skin is not cleansed thoroughly during this vital step, the active ingredients in moisturizers and serums won't be as effective, and long-term results will be impacted. The benefit of micellar water is that it is a gentle cleanser that removes excess oil, dirt, and makeup, leaving the skin rejuvenated and in its original form. This means that your skin will absorb other products you apply after cleansing.
However, not all micellar waters are created equal. Many mass-produced micellar water products include harsh ingredients that clog pores and cause the skin to dry out. The micellar in our range, Mademoiselle Agathe micellar water is composed of 5% snail filtrate, aloe, and vegetal micellar. This combination of ingredients purifies and softens the skin while preserving the natural moisture and PH balance of your skin.
What Does Micellar Water Do?
Micellar water draws out impurities – like dirt, excess sebum, oil, and makeup – from your face. It acts as a magnet attracting pollutants to it and leaving your skin clean. Another benefit of micellar water is that it is a convenient way to remove makeup. Simply apply the micellar water to a cotton pad and apply to your face in gentle circular motions. There's no need to use face wash or tools like facial brushes and washcloths that carry bacteria and cause or worsen acne.
Because of the formula, another benefit of micellar water is that it's suitable for all skin types and leaves the skin hydrated, which isn't something most makeup removers do.
In addition to Micellar water, there are also other one-step cleansers that you can add to your skincare routine for optimal results. The Sepai CLEANSE all-purpose cleansing balm has a rich blend of fermented olive oil, chia seed oil, and a potent Chrono energizing complex providing necessary nutrients for aging or dry skin. Like the micellar water, you can add this cleanser to a cotton pad and gently remove excess dirt and oil from your face, neck, and eyes for luminous and soft skin.
