The Dangers of Dirty Make-Up Brushes


When was the last time you cleaned your make-up brushes?

If you can’t recall, you are in good company. According to Huffington Post, nearly a quarter of the population have never cleaned their brushes at all. If you fall into this category, listen up, because you may want to consider adding the extra step into your routine.

Dirty make-up brushes carry dirt, grime and bacteria that can wreak havoc on your skin. It can clog your pores, cause inflammation, then irritate your already inflamed skin, and as a result, compromise your complexion.

To avoid these nasty outcomes, it is recommended that you clean your brushes a minimum of once a month and preferably twice a month.

We recommend using Eminence’s Natural Brush Cleanser to clean and sanitize your brushes while leaving a pleasant coconut scent.
