How Often Should You Clean Your Makeup Brushes?

Makeup BrushesYou have several makeup brushes for different applications. They are usually all stuffed together in your makeup bag. Do you remember the last time you cleaned them? There are several reasons why you should clean them regularly.

Why Is This Important?

Experts suggest you should clean your brushes often. “For concealer and foundation brushes the cleaner, the better!” say the experts at Earthsavers Spa. “We recommend washing [concealer and foundation brushes] once a week to make sure bacteria doesn’t build up or clog your pores.” Try to make washing your brushes a routine. This will help give you a smoother application and can partially help with healthier skin. Dirty brushes become more abrasive and dry as they become caked with product and debris from your face. This will also make your brushes feel harder.  This does not only make the application of products more difficult, but can also irritate your skin. Dirty brushes can turn into a a breeding ground for germs. This could even ruing your makeup since you are transferring the bacteria from your skin into your makeup.

Also, keep in mind that your are using different brushes for different areas on your face and some areas are more sensitive than others. “Brushes that are used around the eye area should be cleaned about twice per month. For all other brushes once a month.” The more often you clean your brushes the longer they will last.
