Posted by Infinity Skin + Body on Monday, April 6, 2020
Hello to all my skin lovers out there. It’s been a while since i’ve actually been on here with everything going on with the Corona Virus. You may have noticed the title of this live is how hygienic are you really? But i’m actually referring to your makeup brushes. At the moment everyone is focusing on wearing masks, hand hygiene and overall sanitisation, but is anyone thinking about cleaning their makeup brushes?
Okay, so there are different ways that you can keep your makeup brushes nice and clean, which will then help with keeping your skin nice and clear and prevent blocking your pores. This can also prevent a build up of dirt and bacteria on your brush which can then also cause adverse reactions in your skin.
The number one thing you should be doing every day is using some form of brush cleaner. Now, one spray over your brushes is plenty because you do not want this to dry out your skin because it will be on your brushes.
We stock our Jane Iredale brush cleaner which is absolutely amazing and I swear by this!
Now i’m going to talk about actually washing your brushes and I have these little cleaning tools and devices to clean my brushes. You should be washing your brushes every 7-10 days, any more than that and you will ruin the life of your brushes because there will be too much buildup of water in them. What we recommend using to wash your brushes with is baby shampoo as it’s nice and soft on your brushes.
You can also get brush cleaning mat type tools that you rub your brush in a circular motion to help get off the excess product in the brush. You can also get these devices that automatically spin the brush in the water as well as dry the brush. Watch the video to see this process.
All right, so that’s at least a quick and easy way to not only protect yourself from buildup and grime in your brushes being transferred onto your face. Get a nice clean towel and ensure that your brushes are always sitting up as the water gets to surface facing downwards.
So there you are. That’s how to clean your brushes. And if you have any questions, feel free to comment below, and I will answer you back as soon as possible and you will see me here more often. I will be posting again tomorrow, but you’ll have to wait and see what it’s about.
Thanks, guys. Bye
