I’ve partnered with @JohnsonsBaby for this post.
If you ever use makeup brushes and have wondered if you need to clean them, how often you need to clean them, or if this thought never crossed your mind, you’re in the right place. The answer is YES, you need to clean your makeup brushes and you need to do it regularly – I’ll show you how to wash your makeup brushes simply so it becomes a part of your normal routine.
Think about it – we’re constantly reminded not to touch our faces because of spreading dirt and bacteria, yet I speculate many people rub brushes on their faces daily without washing them. By not cleaning your brushes, you’re allowing skin particles, dust, old product, germs, and bacteria to grow and transfer to your face and to your cosmetics, and the grimy circle of filth continues on and on. Yuck.
I’m in the habit of regularly washing and disinfecting my brushes with three products – water, tea tree oil, and JOHNSON’S® baby shampoo. Since I have kiddos, I always have the baby shampoo anyway, and I like to add in tea tree oil because it naturally disinfects and gets rid of bacteria. The shampoo is gentle, removes makeup residue well, and leaves your bristles conditioned, too. This combination will leave your makeup brushes with a clean, refreshing, delicious smell.
