How often do you clean your makeup brushes? Do you clean them at all? Did you even know you were supposed to clean them?Cleaning your make-up brushes in an essential part of keeping your skin clear. Bacteria builds up on the brushes if they aren’t cleaned once in a while. That bacteria ends up on your face every time you apply make-up. Think of the hair on the brushes like the hair on your head. You wouldn’t go your whole life without washing your hair, and neither should your brushes. Determining how often to clean your brushes depends on how frequently you use them. Cleaning them every two weeks will keep them bacteria free.Choosing what to clean your brushes with is simple, since you can use any brush cleaner. Baby shampoo is also an option. It’s sensitive enough to clean make-up brushes without damaging them. Using warm water rinse excess make-up from the brushes and then lay them flat to dry.
Sephora sells daily brush cleaners for those of you who don’t want to wait every two weeks to clean them. Just spritz the cleaner on the brush and let it dry for 3 to 5 minutes. If you don’t want to use a spritzer try their Make Up Brush Cleansing Wipes. It cleans the residue from the make-up and dries in up to three minutes.
