Hello Guys today I’m going to tell you Why you should clean your brushes and How to clean them.
Lets get started
Why should you clean your makeup brushes?
I know we all have busy lives and applying makeup and removing it itself is a big task but, trust me cleaning your brushes is very important. Not removing your makeup itself can cause breakouts so imagine what a dirty brush can do.
The dirt and dust that makeup applicators accumulate
1] can cause breakouts and clogged pores
2] Since it accumulates bacteria in worst case scenario it may cause skin Infection
Don’t forget to gently squeeze out the water from the bristles and lay them flat to dry
How to clean your Makeup Brushes
Step 1 : You need some kind of silicone mould with ridges surface, something like this
Small Un-Branded ones are pretty cheap or you can use rubber hot water bag
Step 2 : You need a cleanser
These are a few alternatives you can choose from
1] Makeup Brush Cleaners
There are products specifically designed to clean your brushes.Although they are a bit expensive when compared to other alternatives, they do not damage the brushes.
Any bar of soap except for detergent can do [because detergent can be way too harsh for the bristles]
3] Shampoo and Shower gel
I personally use Johnson Baby shampoo and it does the job pretty neatly
If you cant seem to remove the makeup residue even after using the above mentioned alternatives, you can first dip it in some makeup remover and then use warm water to rinse off the brushes
If you don’t apply makeup on a regular basis, you should clean your brushes at least once a month provided you store them in a dust free place and If apply makeup regularly I would suggest to clean your once a week
