How often to do you clean your makeup brushes?
If used daily, it’s recommended that makeup brushes are cleaned weekly. This is because makeup brushes collect makeup residue, sweat, oils, and dead skin cells, making them a breeding ground for bacteria. Bacteria collected in makeup brushes and sponges cause skin breakouts, so it’s super important to clean makeup brushes and sponges regularly.
Luckily, cleaning makeup brushes and sponges is now a quick and easy task. There’s no need to invest in expensive makeup brush cleaners. Instead, you can create a DIY makeup brush cleaner using affordable products that you may already have in your house.
What you will need:
- Liquid dish soap will lather and deep clean your makeup brushes.
- ULTRAPURE Laboratories® Olive Oil will loosen stubborn makeup and dirt from your brushes. As dish soap is drying on its own, the olive oil will condition the bristles to ensure no breakages occur.
- ULTRAPURE Laboratories® Tea Tree Essential Oil is added to sanitize the brushes because of its natural anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties.
The Guaranteed Irish ULTRAPURE Laboratories® range is available in Pharmacies and Health Stores (in-store and online).
