Reducing Acne by Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes

A good set of makeup brushes is quite essential if you want your makeup to be applied with a perfectly smooth finish.

If you have a set of brushes, each are surely designed for a specific function; for powder, foundation, blush, smudging, and blending.

But how do you take care of your makeup brushes? And more importantly, how do you make sure that your skin stays smooth and soft; regardless if you’ve applied makeup on a daily basis?

Well, one efficient way to do so is simply to clean your makeup brushes to avoid having to deal with an acne breakout. Surely, cleaning your makeup brushes does have a whole lot more of benefits. Besides, every single time you use the brushes, the makeup will just continue to collect   and before you knew it the bristles abound with so much makeup that it renders the brush pointless to use.

It’s also a bit annoying to find the colors from yesterday’s makeup appearing, and clashing with today’s makeup that you had painstakingly tried to apply. Indeed, cleaning your makeup brushes goes a long way; plus it saves you from the nuisance of having to deal with acne marring your otherwise smooth face.

Reducing acne and keeping a radiant and healthy skin requires proper skin care and hygiene. If you frequently apply makeup, one of the common causes of developing acne or any skin blemishes is a poorly cleaned makeup brush.  So it’s   vital to regularly clean your makeup brushes, whether your are using a specific makeup for acne or not; and it’s fairly easy to do this, too.

How To Properly Clean A Makeup Brush

You can simply use a specific brush cleaner or a baby shampoo to clean the brushes once a week. Then make sure you place them in a standing makeup brush holder to be sure they dry thoroughly and the brushes stay in the proper shape.

Without a makeup brush caddy for your bathroom vanity, you will have to lay your brushes flat which can cause the brush bristles to become misshapen.

Remember that wet makeup brushes will just ruin the effect you’ve been trying to achieve, so let them dry thoroughly. With these tips, you’re sure to reduce acne by keeping your makeup brushes clean and stored properly.
