You won't believe how much bacteria they hold.
Why they need cleaning.
Functionally, clean makeup brushes apply makeup better than dirty ones.
Over time your brushes will accumulate bacteria, dead skin cells and oil. This can clog your pores and lead to break-outs.
Cleaning your brushes weekly prevents build-up that causes break-outs.
1. Get the brushes wet.
2. Place a squirt of Foaming Soap Concentrate into your clean hand and massage the wet bristles into the soap.
3. Rinse thoroughly.
4. Reshape the bristles.
5. Hang off the edge of the counter to dry. (Never lay to dry on a towel, they can mildew.)
