You've heard about it and maybe even used it — but do you know what micellar water actually does? Find out everything you need to know here.
If you’re someone who finds that their skin feels tight and dry after using traditional face cleansers, then you’re probably feeling a bit frustrated. Cleansers that utilize hard water can leave your skin feeling bone-dry, thanks to the fact that the water from our taps isn’t always well-filtered. Does this sound like you? Then allow us to introduce you to our new Anew Hydra Fusion Cleansing Micellar Water.
What does micellar water do?
Micellar waters — pronounced my-sell-ar — work to cleanse your skin in a completely different way than soap-based face washes. They are a combination of hydrating ingredients, glycerine, and extremely mild surfactants. The molecules in these surfactants combine to create little bubbles, called micelles, that eat up dirt and oil. Since you apply micellar water with a cotton swab, the dirt gets wiped away with the micellar water. That means no rinsing, which means no dry skin — and the hydrating ingredients baked into the formula stay behind to keep your face moisturized.
The benefits of Avon’s micellar water
Avon’s Anew Hydra Fusion Cleansing Micellar Water takes that one step further. It both hydrates and defends skin against environmental factors that can zap the moisture from your face. Panthenol enhances your skin’s hydration, while tocopheryl acetate vitamin E provides serious antioxidant benefits. Working together, these two help maintain your skin’s natural hydration levels while also filling in the blanks, providing moisture where your skin is feeling a little dry.
Just because traditional cleansers aren’t compatible with your skin doesn’t mean you need to throw in the towel. With Avon’s Anew Hydra Fusion Cleansing Micellar Water, your face will be clean and hydrated. What’s better than that?
