First up is a product I exploit day by day which I can’t advocate extremely sufficient. It’s a delicate cleaning make-up remover product known as Bioderma Micellar Water. Should you’re not conversant in micellar water, let me share just a bit bit about it.
Micellar water consists of micelles that are tiny balls of cleaning oil molecules suspended in gentle water. These tiny micelles are interested in dust and oil so that they’re ready to attract out impurities with out drying out the pores and skin. And micellar water doesn’t should be washed off after you employ it. You merely put some on a cotton pad and gently apply it all around the face.
That is the cleaning course of I exploit very first thing within the morning. Nonetheless, on the finish of the day, as a result of I’m going to be making use of serums and moisturizers earlier than going to mattress, and I would like these serums and moisturizers to penetrate deeply into my pores and skin, I prefer to double cleanse – as soon as with the micellar water, and once more with a foaming cleanser.
I particularly love utilizing the Bioderma Micellar Water to take away eye make-up as a result of it’s so light on that delicate pores and skin within the eye space. To take away eye make-up, it really works rather well to place some micellar water on a cotton pad after which maintain the cotton pad gently towards the attention for a short time so it may possibly dissolve the make-up. After which it’s very simple to softly wipe the make-up away.
I’ve tried different micellar water manufacturers, however I maintain coming again to Bioderma. There’s no perfume with Bioderma and it really works superbly.
