Not using tap water to wash your face is the new not washing your hair. First Garance Doré revealed that her Paris-based dermatologist had put her on a tap-water-free skin regime and now Style.com is endorsing bottled cleansing waters, specifically a new one from Nars named Makeup Removing Water. The post comes with a caveat, though: "If you’re feeling particularly grimy or are partial to wearing particularly heavy makeup, wash with a gentle cleanser at night and revert to a cleansing water-only regimen when you wake up in the morning."
