Did you know dirty brushes can cause breakouts. Even if your skin is “clean,” your brushes are still collecting oil, dust, dead skin and hair product.
Dirty brushes contaminate all your favourite products. Gels and creams are wet environments where germs can multiply and you are feeding them with a dirty brush.
Dirty brushes can cause skin irritation. Bristles that are covered in product can dry out and become brittle, making them more abrasive to your skin.
The best and most thorough method for cleaning your makeup brushes requires only water and either a gentle soap or brush cleanser. Avoid plain soap as this can dry out the brushes. Try one part baby shampoo to four parts water. Wet the bristles with lukewarm water, place a drop. Do this once a week to keep your brush looking good and skin feeling fresh
