Do you wear makeup? Got expensive brushes? Then it means you ought to take care of your makeup brushes to protect your investment and I will show you how. It’s not difficult at all. All you need is to follow a few simple steps to keep your brushes fresh and clean all the time. Washing your makeup brushes should be a part of your beauty regimen because skipping it can lead to clogged pores and breakouts on your skin.
Wash brushes regularly: Wash at least once a week if you wear makeup everyday or depending on how you use your brushes. Wash with soap and water or rubbing alcohol. When you’ve used your brushes with creams and other sticky substances, it can clog the bristles and make it develop more gunk. Washing them lightly with some antibacterial soap with make sure that your brushes are clean and prevents bacteria build up. Next, I would recommend that you sanitize by dipping them in rubbing alcohol.
Lay them flat to dry: When your brushes are wet, try not to lay them upright so that the bristles do not end up flying out of place. You want to place then flat on a dry surface and allow them to dry. Do not place them under direct sunlight and do not use a blow-dryer to manually dry. They have to dry natural by themselves.
Proper storage matters: Where you keep your brushes is important. You should have a separate bag or pouch to keep your brushes. This will keep them safe from dust and prevent foreign particles from sticking to the bristles and clogging them. You do not want to get such gunk on your face or it could cause you to break out in acne or rashes. Store your brushes in a cool dry place.
