Micellar Waters That Will Beat Any Sweaty Summer Situation
Due to the extra high temperatures and humidity levels this summer we’ve kept micellar water, or no-rinse facial cleansing water, close by to wipe away excess sweat and keep our skin feeling fresh. Letting perspiration linger on your skin’s surface can lead to all sorts of problems including acne on your face, chest and back. To combat breakouts caused by sweat, we love using micellar water in muggy weather because it allows you to cleanse your skin without the need to rinse or rub. The micelle cleansing molecules act like a magnet — working to attract, surround and lift away dirt, oil and other surface impurities from your skin. The best part? It does this without compromising your skin’s hydration levels to leave it feeling clean and refreshed. Ahead, we rounded up a few of our favorite micellar cleansing waters for summer and beyond.
This all-in-one cleanser refreshes your skin, removing impurities like sweat and makeup, without over-drying. It’s powerful enough to remove waterproof eye makeup and longwear lipstick, yet gentle enough for all skin types.
Dirt-encapsulating micelles in this formula attract dirt, oil, makeup and even microscopic pollution particles making it easy to gently wipe them all away. Just a few swipes with a cotton round will leave skin cleansed, toned and feeling rejuvenated.
