Preventing Breakouts: why you should wash your makeup brushes regularly

It is a fact that for a person who practices and enjoys applying makeup, brushes are indispensable. Thus, cleaning them is also essential for our face. Read on to find out more.

According to dermatologists and experts, makeup brushes should be washed at least once a week to prevent them from generating bacteria and therefore passing them to our face. At first glance, it seems that one or two pimples do not do much damage to our face. However, in cases where bacteria have already spent more time on our brushes, they can generate allergies or even fungi on our skin, leading to the impossibility of putting on makeup until our skin recovers.

It is very important to keep our brushes clean and below we will mention the main reasons for doing so:

Avoid germs:

Keep in mind that dirty brushes are a source of bacteria, so using them can cause damage to the face, but these germs not only appreciate our face but also the beauty product can be affected. That is because if the brush interacts directly with palettes or cream products, the bacteria from our brushes are passed on to them and therefore, contaminates them and damages the durability of the products as well as their quality.

Prevents acne:

Our face is exposed to airborne bacteria on a daily basis and every time we use our brushes we are collecting all those bacteria that are on our face. This adheres to our brushes, causing the pores to clog and generating blackheads.

Keeps the bristles soft:

When our makeup brushes are not given the necessary cleaning, they tend to become hard, abrasive, and dry because they take up a new product with each makeup, which makes them difficult to handle and consequently they can irritate the skin.

Avoid irritation:

As mentioned, not washing makeup brushes frequently makes their hair drier and harder.

In the long term, they begin to irritate the skin because they are no longer soft and gentle enough to delicately treat our skin and this may even generate premature wrinkles.
