Why It’s Essential To Clean Your Makeup Brushes Regularly
Knowing the importance of keeping your makeup brushes clean is key…
Because they collect dirt, oil, and bacteria over time, which can cause breakouts and affect their performance.
So keeping your brushes clean not only improves their performance but also prevents bacteria buildup that can cause skin problems.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
– Unclean brushes can be a breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria, potentially causing skin irritations and breakouts.
– Regular cleaning helps to keep bristles soft and supple, ensuring smooth and flawless makeup application.
– Proper care and maintenance, including regular cleaning, contribute to the longevity of your brushes, saving you money in the long run.
The Step-by-Step Guide on How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes
Now that we've established the importance of cleaning your makeup brushes, let's dive into the ‘how' of it.
Typically I recommend both daily and weekly cleaning of makeup brushes (and I demonstrate my favorite techniques for each case in the video tutorial below.)
But here’s a sneak peek:
- For daily cleaning, I recommend using a brush cleaner or 70% alcohol. However, avoid submerging the entire brush in the cleaner as it can degrade the glue holding the brush together.
- For weekly deep cleaning, use a gentle soap and swirl your brush around in the palm of your hand. Rinse and repeat until the water runs clearly
