When you have sensitive skin, cleansing your face twice a day can feel like torture. Harsh ingredients and chemicals easily aggravate skin and all of the scrubbing and rubbing takes its toll on your delicate complexion. A new type of gentle facial cleanser known as micellar water, however, may be the answer to your sensitive skin care woes.
Micellar water cleansers are a new trend that originally developed in France. The formulas contain micelles, molecules made of fatty acid esters that absorb and remove dirt, oil and impurities. The liquid, water-like formula is ideal for quick cleansing and traveling because you don’t need to use water to rinse your face.
The beauty of using a micellar gentle facial cleanser is that you don’t have to scrub your face. You can simply soak a cotton pad or ball with the product and swipe it over your face to remove impurities. You won’t have to spend time rubbing your skin because the lightweight formula penetrates deeply to easily lift away dirt.
Anyone who suffers from sensitive skin care issues will benefit from a product such as La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution. The soothing formula cleanses while calming the complexion to reduce redness and irritation. Free of harsh ingredients, it lifts away dirt, oil and makeup without the need for scrubbing.
NUXE Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals is another gentle facial cleanser that purifies the complexion simply by sweeping the micellar solution over your face. The rose petals in this formula soothe and calm irritated skin for an even tone.
Formulated specifically for the eye area, Phytomer Micellar Water Eye Makeup Removal Solution gently and quickly removes stubborn eye makeup. The eye area is soothed, smoothed and softened with the hydrating ingredients in this formula.
