Cleansing Waters: The Newest in Skin Care

face washing

I really can’t stress enough how important it is to take good care of your skin. After all, your skin (especially on your face!) is the first thing you show to the world.

With so many products on the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right mix of skin care, especially since there can be so many steps, involving tons of different products. Who wants to use five different cleansers, toners and lotions every morning and night? I know I don’t.

Enter the perfect compromise: Cleansing water. This powerful product tackles three steps of your skincare routine – makeup removal, cleansing and toning – with just a few swipes of a cotton pad. No water necessary, so you can even do it on-the-go.

The key ingredients, particles called micelles, are effective because of their structure. Half is attracted to water, the other half, oil, causing these tiny components to connect and break apart constantly, trapping dirt and oil in the process.

Those with sensitive skin can especially rejoice at this new innovation, since cleansing waters don’t contain any detergents and they don’t foam, which can cause skin irritation for some.

If you’re still keen on traditional face wash, try using cleansing water to loosen your eye and face makeup before cleansing. Non-oily formulas work wonders on bulletproof foundation and sunscreen.
