If you find that you suffer acne or a lot of skin congestion and you haven’t washed your brushes recently, start giving them a regular clean and you may notice your skin will start to clear…after all every time you use them dirty you are just transferring the bacteria back and forth. Its a vicious cycle!
Apart from my synthetic foundation brushes I wash all my natural hair brushes with shampoo before removing the moisture, reshaping and placing flat to dry in the sun on a towel ( bristles over the edge so air can move around them). If your in a wetter climate you can place them in the hot water cupboard to speed up the drying process. Don’t dry them with a hair dryer as the heat settings may damage your bristles and cause them to frizz.
I have also began sanitising my palettes thanks to a great post written by Amie Make Up Artist about cosmetic hygiene. Its well worth the read so pop HERE to check it out
