MI­CEL­LAR WA­TER

Glamour (South Africa) - - Beauty Flash Skin -

Mi­cel­lar wa­ter – a cleans­ing wa­ter in­fused with mi­celles (tiny oil mol­e­cules) to at­tract and dis­solve dirt – was first in­tro­duced in France a cen­tury ago as a face-cleans­ing al­ter­na­tive to the coun­try’s harsh tap wa­ter. But it has be­come high pro­file in­ter­na­tion­ally since coun­ter­top ver­sions made it ac­ces­si­ble to all, ex­plains der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr De­bra Luft­man. The best part? You can cleanse with­out touch­ing a basin, as no rins­ing is needed.

USE IT WHEN

You want quick, ef­fec­tive re­sults. But if you’re wear­ing wa­ter-re­sis­tant makeup or sun­block, stick to dou­ble­cleans­ing with an oil-based wash to get ev­ery­thing off.
