A frequently asked and popular question among my clients is, “How often should I clean my makeup brushes and beauty sponges?”
As often as one can! I personally clean my personal & professional set everyday or after every use. My reasons are for sanitary purposes, good hygiene and to prevent debris and breakout happening around my face since I have to wear a good amount of makeup for work. It’s important to keep any intimate items like constant everyday tools that touch your face or any part of your body clean and sanitized after playtime so it’ll be ready for next use. Also think about the amount of time you take off your makeup, apply your most beloved skin care routine then reach for a dirty brush to apply your makeup the next day, you get what I’m trying to say…
And if nothing else, I hope this visual reminder will let you think twice before you reach for that dirty brush…I mean, you wouldn’t treat your toothbrush with any neglect either, right?
It doesn’t take long at all to care for your tools at all, I get around to it at the end of the day when I simmer down and apply my face and hair mask, I created a routine around this self love and care and included cleaning my brushes.
My fairy god sponsors were kind enough to gift me with this flexible silicone cleansing pad (and beauty bar soap) that easily slips over your hand to use as a sturdy cleansing surface, that easily removes stubborn stains with the exclusive material designed to clean, but not tear, your brushes & beauty blenders.
The cleaner the tools, the better you appear.
