Clean Skin, On the Go! The Best Facial Cleanser for Summer’s Sweaty Situations
Lively games of beach volleyball, outdoor drinks on extra humid days, more frequent trips to the gym—the one thing summer’s roster of activities all have in common is sweat. While sweat is a good thing, not removing it from our skin can lead to all sorts of problems—read: acne on our face, chest, and back! This is why we love to keep a no-rinse facial cleanser in tow for all of summer's spur-of-the-moment sweaty situations. The one we deem best for the job? Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water.
It’s no secret we’re big fans of micellar waters at Skincare.com. The French beauty import has been making waves—quite literally—on the skin care scene for a while now…and for good reason! Micelle technology allows you to cleanse your skin without the need to rinse or rub, making it ideal for summer when we’re seemingly always on the go. The micelle cleansing molecules act like a magnet, working to attract, surround, and lift away dirt, oil, and other surface impurities from your skin without compromising your skin’s hydration levels. Your skin is left clean and refreshed, no matter where you are.
Micellar water is ideal for the season when finding a sink to wash your face after the gym is the equivalent of finding a hidden pot of gold. It’s also a quick and easy option to remove sunscreen and sweat from your face after a long day of lounging by the pool or on the beach. When left to linger on the skin, the excess oil caused by sweat can mix with dead skin cells and other impurities on your skin’s surface and can clog pores. If not properly cleansed, these clogs can turn into breakouts, blackheads, and other blemishes that can end up putting a damper on all your summer fun.
Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water ($8.99) can be found at most drugstores and easily fits inside a large purse, beach tote, or gym bag for the ultimate convenience. The all-in-one cleanser gently refreshes your skin, removing impurities like sweat and makeup without over-drying. Cleaner skin this summer for less than $10? We’ll take it!
