How often do you need to clean your makeup and beauty care tools?
Your makeup routine must involve more than just applying the products; you must know that there are pre and post steps that you should follow, and they include cleaning your face before and after using your makeup and your makeup tools.
Your makeup and other beauty tools must be properly cleaned to prevent bacteria proliferation that eventually can cause skin infections. By avoiding the proper cleaning, your makeup tools will also show deterioration signs sooner than expected.
Here we will tell you how to clean your makeup and other beauty tools to prevent infection and prolong their use:
Sponges: Clean them at least once a week. You only need to rub them with a bar of soap and squeeze them to remove the excess water. Make sure to leave them in an open space and avoid humidity.
Brushes: We know it is almost impossible to wash them after every use, but the least you can do is take a wet handkerchief or paper towel and remove the makeup residue from the brush. Try doing a deep cleaning of the brushes once a week with liquid soap.
Combs: You must remove all the hair that accumulates at least once a week. You can do it with your hands or by using another comb to do it. You can also soak the brushes in water with soap to remove bacteria and dirt at least once a month.
