Makeup Brushes: A Playground
When was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? Yesterday? Last week? Last Month? Never? Dirty makeup brushes are often the perfect playground for breeding bacteria.
If that doesnít scare you into washing your brushes, used makeup brushes that are not properly cleaned also contain old makeup residue and dead skin cells. So while you may think youíre applying a fresh coat of foundation, youíre in fact applying your own (or someone elseís) dead skin cells and dirty oils to your face.
Makeup brushes should be washed regularly; at least once a week to ensure that they donít become bacteria breeding grounds that can cause your skin to suffer from impurities and dirty pores.
