We love a good makeup remover, and with the spotlight falling on micellar water, Pearl Mathias tells you more what it is and why you might want to use it

If you wear makeup very often and love to experiment with styles and trends, you’ll know how important it is to have a good makeup remover. In your search for one, you may have gone through several options. We’ve tried everything from baby oil to coconut oil! Well, the beauty universe understands your struggle and they’ve done all the research required to bring you a magical product, called micellar water, which saves time and gets rid of all the makeup you’ve caked on.

Several beauty brands have been advertising their products and you may have seen a perky Alia Bhatt frolicking while she removes her makeup. Micellar water makes the whole process seem so easy! But, we don’t blame you if you’re a little sceptical about using it. Here we tell you a few things you may want to know before you try it out.

What is micellar water?

Micellar water is one of the most popular cleansers used by makeup artists across the globe. This is because the lightweight solution effectively gets rid of makeup and dirt on your skin. The solution is made up of “micelles” or microscopic oil molecules suspended in water. All you need to do is dab the solution onto a cotton swab and wipe your face with it. Since micellar water is a very gentle cleanser, experts have said that it is suitable for acne-prone skin as well as those with sensitive skin.

What you should know

Several beauty brands (surely all the leading ones) have jumped at the new innovation, and have been marketing micellar water as the biggest thing since the moon landings. So, we thought you should know how to use it. The cleansing solution is said to work well with all skin types, but through personal use, we felt that it didn’t work as well with oily skin as it did with dry or sensitive skin. However, it is safe for all skin types.

Micellar water has gained much popularity because it is considered to be an all-round product that cleanses, hydrates and protects the skin. However, one thing you may forget to do, when you start using micellar water to remove your makeup, is exfoliate. It is important to scrub and exfoliate your skin regularly, so don’t skip out on the exfoliating even if you choose to implement micellar water in your daily beauty routine.

The great thing about micellar water is that it doesn’t need any rubbing to get rid of the makeup. Just a couple of swabs and your face is left fresh and clean! You don’t even need to rinse your face after using it. Another positive about the product is that it easily gets rid of waterproof makeup, which is one of the most tedious aspects of makeup removal. It works just as easily as with non-waterproof makeup, not leaving you to struggle at the end of a night out.

Should you use it?

We don’t see why you shouldn’t! It truly is one of the gentlest ways of cleansing your skin and removing makeup, and it also helps to hydrate the skin, which is a big boon in itself. If you start to use micellar water, you can say goodbye to complicated makeup removal procedures, especially those involving many steps and multiple products. You can use micellar water as part of your morning routine as well, not necessarily as a makeup remover. It does have plenty of benefits that can do your skin some good.
