Perfect for all skin types, micellar cleansing water helps in clearing out pores, deep dives into skin cells to remove all oil and dirt and gives you the best clear skin of your dreams. So, how does micellar cleanser work? Here is a look at what it is made of, how it is used, and why do you need it in your daily skincare routine:
What is micellar water?
Micellar water is made up of micelles ‘tiny oil molecules’ which are suspended in purified water. These micelles work like a magnet to remove all the makeup, dirt and oil from the skin without drying it out. Micellar cleansing water meaning it does not contain alcohol and it is very gentle to the skin.

Some of the top benefits of using a micellar water:
- One of the best benefit of micellar water is how it suits all skin types. It removes all makeup, oil, dirt and grime without drying out the skin and does not cause acne or breakouts making it suitable for acne-prone or irritated skin too. Also it has skin-soothing and hydrating ingredients like glycol, vitamins and purified water that respects natural balance of the skin and does not cause any irritation.
- Traditional face cleansers and makeup removers disrupt the Ph balance of your skin and make it dry and itchy. Micellar water packed with hydrating ingredients does not damage the skin barrier and gently deep cleanses the oils and dirt on top of your skin.
- Micellar water prevents acne too as it deep cleanses pores and removes all oil and debris from your skin. Acne occurs when your pores are clogged by bacteria, pollution or oil, which leads to inflammation, redness and occurrence of pimples and acne. Because micellar water is gentle, non-stripping, it does not aggravate or worsen acne
- Micellar water is great to carry around and perfect for no-rinse makeup removal and deep cleanse on-the-go. You can use it to clean your skin post-workout or after a tiring day when you have no energy to do an elaborate skincare routine. It cleanses, tones and moisturizes skin and makes your skin prepped for other skincare products to absorb and work effectively!
How to use micellar water?
Micellar water can be used both in your AM and PM skincare routine! A great product to carry in your beauty stash, it is easy to use and effective in makeup removal and deep cleansing skin. You will not need an additional cleanser or toner when you have micellar water in your skin routine as it does the job of cleansing, toning and hydrating your skin. For fresh, clear skin, simply dampen a cotton pad with a micellar water and swipe it all over your face to remove heavy makeup, dirt and impurities from your skin. For heavy eye makeup removal, press the soaked cotton pad onto the eyes for a while so that it effectively removes all water-proof makeup and gives you clean skin without any irritation or itchiness.
