How To Cleanse: The New Rules For Getting Your Freshest Face


Disclosure: This is a Sponsored Post


There’s more to cleansing your face than splashing it with a bit of soap and water. In fact, a whole new breed of products – like Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water – mean you don’t even need water to get your freshest face!

This no-rinse, three-in-one formulation is perfect for travelling, late nights or when you can’t be bothered with a fussy skincare routine. It’s a model fave and spotted in the kit of all the best make-up artists. So, what makes Micellar Cleansing Water so special and how does it change the way you’ve always washed your face?


What is Micellar Cleansing Water?

Designed to be swept away with a cotton pad, Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water uses tiny micelle particles (microscopic oil spheres) to draw make-up and impurities from the skin. But, the best part is you won’t be left with any oily residue and there’s no need to rinse your skin afterwards. All you have to do is wait a couple of seconds until it dries and then pop your moisturiser on.

Why is it so Good for your Skin?

Free of soap, alcohol and perfume, Micellar Cleansing Water dissolves impurities without stripping or inflaming the skin, which makes it perfect for all complexions, even super dry, sensitive or acne-prone. Plus, it’s much gentler than a foaming cleanser or the other on-the-go favourite we all reach for – face wipes.



Do You Need to Use Micellar Cleansing Water with Cotton Pads?

Yes! Cotton is hydrophilic, so when you pour the Micellar Cleansing Water onto a cotton pad, the micelle molecules attract impurities like a magnet – without the need for harsh rubbing or scraping.

Do you need to use a toner after you’ve cleansed your skin?

Toners help calm the skin and balance pH levels, but with the Micellar Cleansing Water you can toss yours out! This does all that – and more.


How often should you cleanse?

As with all things skin, there is no one-size-fits-all rule. From skin type to environment, the number of times you should cleanse a day depends on YOU. But as guide, always wash your face after a workout to prevent breakouts and wash excessively oily skin morning and night. For very dry or sensitive skin, stick to cleansing once daily in the evening.
