Dirty Makeup Brushes


How Dirty Makeup Brushes Can Cause Skin Issues

Turquoise Springs Medical Spa·WEDNESDAY, MAY 9, 2018

Your makeup brushes, puffs, and sponges touch your face daily and rarely get cleaned. Cosmetic tools should be cleaned on a regular basis with soap and warm water or brush cleaner like we use at the spa. Here are the reasons you should never use a dirty makeup brush:

  1. Your pores can get clogged and cause breakouts.
  2. Your makeup will look worse. Dirty brushes lead to muddy looking makeup.
  3. You could get pink eye. It can be spread by sharing eye brushes.
  4. Your skin can get irritated as bristles get stiffer from product build up.
  5. You will waste money buying new ones as brushes that are regularly cleaned last longer.
  6. Sticky eyelash brushes or curlers can lead to pulling your eyelashes out.
  7. A makeup sponge full of bacteria attracts bugs. Ewwww.
