Sanitize Your Makeup

We’ve all heard from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that we shouldn’t touch our faces. But what does that mean for our makeup supplies? After all, if you don’t want to touch your face with unwashed hands, then you definitely don’t want to do it with dirty makeup brushes.

If you’re surprised that makeup brushes need to be cleaned at all, it might be time to throw out your supply and start from the beginning. With all the use they get, brushes should be tossed out around two to three months and they should be washed at least every seven to ten days. Thankfully, giving them a good cleaning is a super simple process. Just squeeze out a drop of soap and massage the bristles with your hands while rinsing them out with warm water. After that, just let them dry on the edge of the counter so they keep that rounded shape. That’s all it takes!
