Micelles are tiny chemical structures with the ability of attract dirt from the skin like a magnet. In natural cosmetics, these are natural micelles. Micellar water also contains additional extracts with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, soothing and moisturising properties.

Do you know how to cleanse your face with the Fresh Green Micellar Water?
It's very easy! We'll explain to you how:
When? We can do cleansing routine in the morning and at night. It's a must and your skin will thank you for it.
In the morning: you're probably familiar with the need to clean your face before going to sleep, but it's also essential in the morning. Even when you’ve just woken up, you must clean your face to remove the excessive sebum generated during the night. The Fresh Green Micellar Water should be applied to the face with the help of a cotton pad and there is no need to rinse! It doesn’t dry out skin and refreshes the face so you can use it throughout the day.
At night: even if you don't wear makeup, your skin accumulates impurities and is affected by the daily impacts of pollution and solar radiation. So before going to sleep it is almost mandatory to cleanse the face to remove accumulated dirt. The Fresh Green Micellar Water, will leave your skin clean and hydrated, thanks to effective antioxidant extracts.
How to use: Apply the product on your face using a cotton pad, gently rubbing in a circular motion, moving down to the cheeks and onto the chin to clean and remove impurities.
Do you know how to remove makeup with the Fresh Green Micellar Water?
Makeup? Don’t worry! Fresh Green Micellar Water is designed to completely eliminate makeup from your eyes and lips, even the waterproof one.
When? It is essential to remove the makeup before going to sleep to remove traces of dirt that may have been accumulated during the day. This way the skin is able to breathe and has no barriers to clog it.
How to use: First we recommend starting with the eyes. Moisten two cotton pads with the Fresh Green Micellar Water and gently press over the eyelid for a few seconds. This will allow the natural micelles to act on your skin. Then, we move the cotton pad along the root of the eyelashes to the tips. Do the same with the lips, cleaning from the corner of the lip towards the centre. Finally, remove the rest of the makeup from your face. It is always best to try to clean in soft, circular movements to increase circulation to these areas and avoid aggressively pulling the skin.
It is recommended to apply the Micellar Water with a cotton pad that has enough capacity to absorb the water and can be easily applied to the skin. The cotton pad is the most commonly used tool for facilitating the application but you can also use washable and reusable discs, vegetable sponges or microfiber towels.
For best results, we recommend you to try a complete skincare routine in order to show off radiant, beautiful and healthy skin. For this we recommend using the Antiox Facial Plan, a pack that contains four essential products to purify, refresh, hydrate and protect against oxidative damage.
