Makeup brushes and makeup blenders may be breeding grounds for bacteria, particularly if they aren’t cleaned frequently or stored properly or, worse, shared with a buddy. Consider it: Even if you don’t have oily skin, the buildup of merchandise and germs can contaminate your brushes and if you do not clean them, then you are just going to transfer this to your face.
These steps must be followed when cleaning your makeup tools, if they’re brushes, blenders and anything in between.
As straightforward as this step is, one wants to be very careful to prevent water from running directly into the bottom of the brush. This is because the water weakens the paste and contributes to the falling from the bristles thus shortening the lifespan of the brush. The suitable method to wash a brush is to always wash the bristles with water flowing down. However, the blender should be rinsed using warm water till it is fully soaked.
Measure 2 – Cleansing
When cleaning the brushes, a gentle shampoo, soap, or daily facial cleanser can function flawlessly to help break down the dirt or makeup that’s caked on the bristles over time. The shampoo should be worked to the brittles and rinsed with water till they become clean. You can also massage coconut oil to the bristles to receive all stubborn products from the brushes. Lather should be shaped in the blender with the shampoo and thoroughly washed then rinsed until water runs clean.
Measure 3 – Disinfecting
Rinsing and cleansing the blender and bristle of this brush is enough to eliminate all types of dirt around the brush but it is not sufficient to eliminate germs and bacteria. The only ways to eliminate germs is to disinfect the bristles. This can be accomplished with a solution which contains two part water and one part Vinegar.
Measure 4 – Drying
The final step to follow when cleaning your brush and blender is to wash them. The blender should be air dry or if needed to be used moist, then it may be put to work quickly.
