Rebel Beauty Question: How often should we clean our makeup brushes?
A. Once a week
B. Once a month
C. Not often enough
If you answered B, you are absolutely correct. Many experts believe cleaning your brushes once a month should be enough. Because oils and residue from your face breeds bacteria, which you can return back to your face. This bacteria can cause breakouts. But when you think about it, who really cleans their brushes as much as they should? How do you know when your brushes need to be cleaned? Your brush is no longer soft and it is very cakey. If you have not given this any thought, you really should. Remember your face is your billboard; it is the first thing people look at.
In the meantime, use a light scented soap, such as detergent or baby soap, with warm water to clean your brushes. You can also invest in a good brush cleanser. You can find this at your local Sephora or Ulta make up counter. When cleaning your brushes wash them with care. Be very gentle when cleaning your brushes, because brushes can lose its shape and texture. Most importantly, it is your investment.
