Stephanie’s DIY Micellar Water Recipe
Micellar water is a cleansing liquid that removes dirt, oil, and makeup from the skin when swiped on the face with a cotton ball. This cleansing solution contains particles called micelles that attract dirt from the skin. It may also contain other soothing and moisturizing ingredients. Since Stephanie’s skin type is dry, she likes to customize her micellar water with many nourishing ingredients. Here is how she prepares her DIY micellar water –
- Instead of regular tap water, Stephanie likes to use rose water as the base for her micellar water. She heats two ounces of rose water in the microwave to a lukewarm temperature.
- Stephanie uses Lecithin as the emulsifying ingredient in her micellar water to remove oil and makeup from the face. She mixes 1/8th tsp of Lecithin into the rose water with a whisk or frother.
- After mixing the two main ingredients, Stephanie then adds 6 more ounces of rose water, along with a teaspoon of soothing aloe, and ½ teaspoon each of cucumber seed oil, argan oil, and glycerine. She also adds ½ teaspoon of liquid Castille soap to the mixture at this point for its cleansing action.
- Once all the ingredients are combined well, Stephanie strains the liquid and stores it in an airtight glass jar. She recommends storing this DIY micellar water in an amber jar in a cool, dark place, to preserve it for longer. You can also store it in the fridge and use it as a cooling toner.
- To use your DIY micellar water, shake the bottle and pour some of the liquid on a cotton pad. Gently swipe the cotton pad across your skin. You can use this micellar water as a toner, cleanser, makeup remover, and brush cleaner.
