How To Use Micellar Cleansing Water - Step 1

Micellar cleansing water's main task is to cleanse the skin deeply, eliminating all waste that accumulates on the face throughout the day, any grease particles and makeup. If you use micellar cleansing water you do not need to apply another makeup removal product as it cleanses, removes makeup and tones in one step.


To use micellar water properly and leave your skin radiant and beautiful, pay attention to the following tips. In order to apply it, it's best to use specific makeup removal cotton pads. Firstly, soak a cotton pad with micellar water and start by cleaning the eyes and eyelashes. Place the cotton pad on your eyelid for a few seconds and sweep down, cleaning the lashes from root to tip, without pressing too hard.
