Tips to wash your brushes correctly

If you are a makeup lover, you know how important it is to keep your brushes clean to obtain a perfect finish on your face. Cleaning your makeup tools not only prolongs their lifespan, but also helps prevent skin infections and breakouts. In this blog, we share some tips to clean your brushes correctly.

Tip #1: Use a brush cleaner. There are many brush cleaners on the market that make it easy to clean your makeup tools. These products are designed to remove makeup, bacteria, and oil built up on your brushes. Simply add a few drops of cleanser to a bowl of warm water and soak the brushes for a few minutes. Then, rinse them with water and let them air dry.

Tip #2: Wash your brushes with neutral soap. If you don't have a brush cleaner on hand, you can wash them with neutral soap. Neutral soap is mild and will not damage your brushes. Wet the bristles of the brushes and gently rub with neutral soap in the palm of your hand until the dirt comes out. Rinse them with warm water and let them air dry.

Tip #3: Do not submerge the handle of the brushes in water. It is important to avoid submerging the handle of your brushes in water, as this can damage the wood and loosen the bristles. Instead, dampen just the bristles and wash gently.

Tip #4: Dry your brushes correctly. It's crucial to let your brushes dry completely before using them again. To do this, place your brushes on a flat surface with the bristles facing down. Let them air dry and avoid blow drying them as the heat can damage the bristles.

Tip #5: Clean your brushes frequently. Finally, it is important to clean your brushes regularly to avoid build-up of dirt and bacteria. If you use your brushes daily, be sure to clean them at least once a week. If you use them less frequently, clean them at least once a month.
