Skin experts say that you need a full cycle of double cleansing twice a day. Once in the morning, and once at the end of the day to remove makeup. But, let’s face it – you probably think it is too laborious to follow a strict routine like that. Here’s where micellar water comes to your rescue. It gets absorbed into your skin and cleanses it quickly. If you use any serums, packs, or lotions as part of your nighttime routine, clean them up with micellar water the next morning before washing your face.

The truth is, a whole lot of sweat settles on the top of your skin and attracts dust. This can clog your pores. Just use micellar water to cleanse your face quickly after working out.
