The key to creating a DIY micellar water is to include a mix of ingredients that cleanse, moisturise and can remove makeup. Astringent witch hazel is the perfect base to a cleansing micellar water, as it’s properties are perfect for sweeping away bacteria in clogged pores. It also works to remove pollution and toxins that your skin has been exposed to throughout the day. Castor oil and jojoba provide the ideal makeup remover and moisturiser, as well as balancing the skin’s PH and the sebum glands. A drop of rose oil will continue to tighten pores and soothe any post cleansing redness.
