how to use micellar water if you have sensitive skin

Gentle Face Cleanser For Sensitive Skin

Micellar water is powered by micelles, little molecules that attract oil, dirt and makeup from the skin leaving skin to breathe and avoiding residue that can irritate sensitive skin.

For sensitive skin it's best to use the micellar wipe or apply the micellar water to a cotton pad and wipe the pad across your face lifting off at the end to pull away any of the dirt or makeup from the day. You shouldn't need to rub or rinse, or use the sink because of NIVEA's specially formulated Micellar Water. This makes it easy when you need to cleanse outside of your home too!

You shouldn't ignore the rest of your face cleansing routine either: read NIVEA's guide to face cleansing for more.

Sensitive Skin Care Steps

  1. Cleanse your face - Use a moisturising face wash first thing in the morning to wipe away any dirt or bacteria that may be left on your face after sleep. Then take your NIVEA Micellar Water or Wipes and get to work.
  2. Moisturiser - Use a moisturising day cream designed for sensitive skin such as NIVEA Daily Essentials Sensitive Day Cream to reduce the main signs of sensitive skin redness, tightness and dryness.
  3. Use Sun Protection - Not just for your face - overexposure to the suns rays can harm sensitive skin. Make sure to apply a sunscreen SPF 15 or higher would be best.
  4. Weather - Cold weather can impact sensitive skin so make sure you wrap up to protect your skin from harsh conditions
