When was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? Dirty makeup brushes can cause serious dermatological issues on your skin. Dirty makeup brushes can result in pimples, rashes, and other red spots. You can also get skin congestion and skin irritation. A lack of maintenance can also result in limp brush bristles that are incompetent in blending your makeup. The proper maintenance can boost their longevity and they will be more effective in makeup application.

This step should also encompass your makeup sponges and beauty blenders. That sponge can store so much filth and grime that can cause you to breakout. It should actually be replaced every three months to ensure that you won’t be harboring any dirt or grime.

Another important thing to remember is that it is a major sin to share your makeup applicators. It is way more hygienic and sanitary to simply limit your applicators to your own and refrain from using anyone else’s.

Another bad side effect of using dirty makeup brushes is they can speed up aging or the appearance of age markers. A lot of individuals report that poorly maintained makeup applicators can result in premature skin aging as well as collagen breakdown.

Here is the step-by-step guide on how you should go about it. Take your brushes and dip then under hot and running water. Transfer them into a bowl with gentle soap or shampoo and let them soak for a while. Lather the brushes against the palm of your hands to clean them. It is better to use gentle products so that you can boost the longevity and viability of the bristles. Harsh cleaning can cause the hair to fall off or become unnecessarily hard. Rinse your brushes under hot and running water until there is no soap left. Squeeze out the excess water and then lay out the brushes on a dry towel to dry overnight. Do the same thing with beauty sponges.
