The Untold TRUTH about Micellar Water, Facial cleansing wipes and Cleansing Oil

The unknown truth about facial
cleansing wipes, micellar water, and cleansing oils. That’s what we’re going to
be talking about today. So all cleansers pretty much work in the
same fashion. Their primary purpose is to remove the oil, the dirt, and the make-up
from your skin. So all dirt eventually becomes oily when it lands on the skin
and mixes with the sebum. So the cleansers are designed to remove all of
that, including all the epithelial debris that is on our skin. And so for those of
you who don’t know, that is dead skin cells. So cleansers consists of molecules,
and on one end of the molecule it is “hydrophilic” — or water-loving — it is
water-soluble, so it obviously dissolves in water. The other part of it is oil-loving, or oil soluble — also called “lipophilic”. Now the oil-loving part of
the molecule is what dissolves the oil, the oily dirt on our skin. So when the
water is added during the rinsing part of washing your face, the water soluble
molecules take the dirt and carry it away — so it’s rinsed off. So now if you
DON’T add water, then the oily dirt can’t be rinsed away. And the oily dirt, the
residue will remain on the skin. Hey there, it’s Christy from Go See Christy
Beauty Boutique, and I have been treating clients with Acne, hyperpigmentation, fine
lines and wrinkles, and other skin conditions for over 11 years. And so when
clients come in for a consultation for a facial and they bring in their products,
sometimes they’re bringing in the cleansing oil, the micellar water, or
facial cleansing wipes to evaluate them. And so we’re going to be talking about
what a lot of people don’t know about these products. And as always, links and
sources will be provided in the description below.
So why facial cleansing wipes may not be exactly “cleansing” your skin is because
when you use it, and the oil-loving part of the
molecule does take off and break down the oily residue and the make-up off your
skin, when you don’t add any water, the water-loving molecule can’t whisk away
and remove completely all of that off of your face. So I realize that some of you,
I can already hear some of you groaning out there, “Ugh…”, because I understand that
facial cleansing wipes are extremely convenient.
However, a double-cleanse is needed to completely remove the oil, and the dirt,
and the make-up away. So again, if you’re going to use it, my recommendation for
this is to use it to break down the make-up, but you still need to wash your
face off. And I understand if you’re camping, or going somewhere where water
is not available, then try to use as many facial wipes as possible to break it
down as much as possible. So the next one is micellar water, that has become really
popular in recent years. So micellar water is actually a cleanser that uses
the saponification molecule in a circular configuration or form, and I’ll
put little figures out here to help illustrate what I’m trying to say. So
this type of cleanser is mostly composed of water with tiny particles of oil —
micelles — dispersed in the water, in which the molecule — so remember how I talked
about the molecules, one end is water- loving and the other end is oil-loving —
so how micellar cleansers work is that the oil-loving part of the molecule
breaks down and absorbs the dirt and then suspends it in the water so that
you need very little water for it to be wiped off or rinsed off. So unbeknownst
to a lot of my clients, and maybe even you, is, is that micellar water has a
HIGH oil content. So due to its higher oil content, it’s not the most efficient
in breaking down heavy make-up and waterproof mascara. So therefore you need
to do a double-cleanse. So once again, very much like how the facial cleansing
wipes work, is, is that it can break down the oily dirt and make-up, but you need
something with water to actually remove it away from the skin. So in some cases
some of my clients who thought that they were just using a cleansing water, they
actually found an INCREASE in breakouts. Now this may not be you, but it is quite
common for clients using that thinking that they’re just using a water-based
product, that some of them have found that the breakouts can increase.
Especially if they’re not doing a double- cleanse! So before we get to our last one,

cleansing oils obviously have a higher lipid content, and that is to replenish
or restore the skin’s barrier. However, some cleansing oils may have a type of
oil which contains lipids that are very different from our own skin’s natural
lipid barrier. So when that happens, it can leave an oily residue, which can lead
to congestion — which is bumpy skin — or even breakouts for those of you who are
more breakout-prone. Now dry skin actually, dry skin types actually prefer
cleansing oils because of how it can replenish, or feels like it’s
replenishing the natural oil barrier. However, if it is not the ones that are
very similar to our skin, what can happen even to dry skin is over time they can
start to experience congestion or breakouts. So it’s really important,
whether you have dry skin or oily skin, and you want to use the cleansing oil,
it’s very important to, again, do a double- cleanse with a-, something that you can
rinse off, you can add water to, and it breaks down the oil, and then rinses off,
and EXFOLIATE because with higher oil content then the epithelial debris is
more likely to stick on the skin. So cleansing oils can be effective in
breaking down heavier oily-based liquid make-up, but what it’s not effective is
actually removing it off the skin. So it can break it down. So what you want to do
is if you’re looking for a cleansing oil, you want to look for a cleansing oil
that is **WATER DISPERSIBLE**. And so how you can tell is when you apply the cleansing oil
and you start to massage it through to break down the make-up, when you add water
to it, it starts to immediately dissolve, believe it or not, and it turns milky. So
when you are rinsing it, you can actually feel the oil, and the oily dirt, and the
make-up coming off of your skin. And this is why you need a double-cleanse,
ESPECIALLY with a cleansing oil, because when you use it, it starts to break down,
and you’re trying to just tissue it off, you will, I mean you could feel that it’s
not really quite removing everything off. So a double-cleanse is needed! But if
you’re using a cleansing oil that the oil, the higher content oil in it is not
exactly water-soluble, then it is very difficult to remove. So have you ever
used any one of these products and felt like your skin wasn’t quite clean?
Whether its facial cleansing wipes, micellar water, or the cleansing oils?
