4 Reasons To Clean Your Makeup Brushes And How To Do It by Sania Claus Demina

Taking care of the skin on your face is not only about washing it or keeping it hydrated. It’s easy to forget about the things we’re letting it touch every day: phones (use a headset), pillows (be sure to change them up at least once a week) and makeup brushes!

Here are 4 reasons to take care of your makeup brushes at LEAST once a week, preferably every day:

1. BACTERIA. Just think about the germs picked up by your brushes every day: makeup, dead skin cells, bacteria (that quickly multiplies), dirt and dust, oil from your skin.. the list goes on. Do we really need to say more? Obviously, all these things increase the risk of your skin breaking out and only that alone is a great reason to maintain your makeup equipment.

2. EASIER & BETTER APPLICATION. It’s way easier to apply makeup with a clean brush than by using one that has old dry pieces of products on it. This especially goes for anything liquid.

3. RUINING YOUR PRODUCTS. That bacteria we mentioned, in the beginning, goes to your makeup products that won’t last as long as they would if you’d keep them clean from germs.

4. SAVING MONEY. The brushes will last way longer if you take care of them and stay soft and nice. Good ones aren’t cheap and they can only be called an investment if you clean them often.
