What Is Micellar Water?

Maintaining a regular facial cleansing routine is essential for optimal skin health. By cleansing your face daily, you can effectively maintain your skin's pH balance, reducing the risk of acne and other cosmetic or health concerns. It's important to pay attention to the products you choose and the care you provide to your skin. Incorporating suitable micellar water into your skincare process is a highly beneficial step.

  • Micellar water is the ideal facial cleanser and makeup remover for all skin types. It is made of purified water, mild surfactants, and moisturizers to help get rid of any dirt, excess sebum, and makeup residue.
  • It contains "micelles" that draw various impurities and oils away from the skin. Thanks to its gentle ingredients, the New NIVEA Soothing Micellar Water does not leave behind any oily feeling, nor makes the skin drier. This way, it can suit oily skin to reduce excessing further sebum or help to prepare dry skin by moisturizing it. And for the first time, our micellar water is infused with Amino Acid Complex-which, combined with powerful micelles-removes all traces of makeup extra effectively without the need of any rubbing.
  • It does not need additional rinsing after usage but helps in moisturizing the skin. Based on your skin type, you can find the most suitable version of a micellar water makeup remover to help a deep cleansing process after a long day and remove any makeup left behind.

What are the Benefits of Micellar Water?

Using micellar water, especially as part of your evening skincare routine can be a holy grail as you can use it in several ways. Let’s see how you can benefit from it!

  • Perfect cleanser. Micellar water is excellent for removing makeup or dirt left on the skin. It not only helps to clean the sur- face of the skin but also to remove dead skin cells that have clogged your pores. This way, your skin can breathe again easily, and you will be less likely to suffer from breakouts.
  • Versatile. It works great as a face-cleansing water or as a toner, so you don't have to keep multiple products on your shelves, saving space and money.
  • Hydrating. Thanks to its moisturizing ingredients, most micellar water liquids help to restore skin hydration and protect its healing process.
  • Soothing. Due to being enriched with Amino Acid Complex and Powerful Micelles, NIVEA Soothing Micellar Water helps to gently reduce any inflammation or irritation in your skin, making your skin clean and healthy.
  • Gentle. Even if you have sensitive skin, you can still use micellar water cleansers as they do not contain any alcohol or perfume, only gentle ingredients.

How to Use Micellar Water?

  1. First of all, clean your hands from any dirt before you start cleaning your face!
  2. Take at least one cotton pad and pour your chosen micellar water onto it. Soak up the cotton pad.
  3. If you have applied mascara, close your eyes and gently press the soaked cotton pad onto your eyelid. Then care- fully start to wipe the pad from the inside of your face to the outside.
  4. If you still see makeup residue, use another clean cotton pad, pour some micellar water on it, and repeat the wiping motions on the selected area.
  5. It is not essential to rinse your face after using micellar water, but if you want to dilute it as part of a dry cleansing or want to incorporate it into your routine anyway, follow your heart!
  6. If you're happy with the results and your skin doesn't need any further facial routine, you're done! If you want to apply further facial products, let your face dry and then apply the next product.

Can I Use Micellar Water for Sensitive Skin?

Any skin type-oily, dry, normal, or combination-can also be a sensitive type. For someone with this challenge, it is extra crucial to find the most soothing products to avoid further irritations. Micellar waters are made with gentle ingredients, without alcohol or fragrances, which means that any type of skin can benefit from daily usage.

There is micellar water for sensitive skin as well! If you have a sensitive skin type, you should always check the label to see if the micellar water is suitable for a sensitive complexion.

How to Use Micellar Water in Your Skincare Routine

There are several ways to incorporate micellar water into your daily skincare routine:

  • If you want to use it like cleansing water as part of your morning routine or as a sensitive skin wash after a long day, just pour it on a cotton pad, soak it up, and with gentle wiping movements, clean your skin until you feel the freshness.
  • Even if you wear very little makeup or use products for a long-lasting look, micellar water can help remove it all without the need for harsh or abrasive rubbing. Gently wipe over the areas of your face you want to remove makeup residue.
  • It's not unusual to use micellar water as a toner. As a first step, use another cleanser, and then continue with your chosen mi- cellar water to pat it on your complexion.
  • If you have made a mistake while putting on makeup, micellar water can be a lifesaver! Just put a drop or two on a cotton swab or smaller cotton pad and remove any areas where you are not happy with the end result.
