Are you suffering from chronic break outs?
Do you have stubborn blackheads? .
Is your foundation lack lustre? .
It could very well be your makeup brushes.. .
I am a Beauty Therapist, so skin is my first priority before makeup... I love a makeup that is clean, fresh and natural, and the best way to achieve that is a good skin base.. apart from skin care and systemic issues there is one other devil that plays a part in our breakouts and that is our makeup brushes.. .
They are used daily on our skin, whether our skin is dry, breaking out, or oily and are with us for every season.. it’s very important to make sure our brushes are clean as they are collecting loads of skin cells as they sweep our skin daily, and those skin cells contain bacteria which can multiple in our makeup bag in the heat and humidity .. brushes should be cleaned at least once a month when used on an individual.. I clean my brushes every single time I use them on a client.. and this is my routine.. .
1. Soak them in warm water.
2. In the palm of my hand I place a 5cent circle of some dish soap or something that will lift ‘oil’, I like using antibacterial dish soap..
3. I keep circling the brush in the soap and rinsing under water until the brush runs clear if any product .. set aside.
4. Repeat this with all your brushes SEPARATELY.
5. Rinse under warm water.
6. Fill a sink with hot water and detail antibacterial laundry solution or Milton antibacterial solution.
7. Place brushes in and soak for 10mins.
8. Rinse with warm water.
9. Place on an absorbent towel in the air to dry.
The principle behind using the dish soap is because most foundations these days are stay on all day bases and are incredibly hard to shift from brushes! ✨
This process will make your brushes smell clean, sterile and your foundations and products do their job more effectively and will keep your skin clearer and brighter.
