According to makeup experts, it is recommended to clean makeup brushes every 2 – 4 weeks. Failing to do so can result in the buildup of bacteria, combined with moisture and leftover cosmetics, creating a potential source of skin problems such as acne and uneven skin. To avoid these issues, it is important to regularly clean your brushes using the following simple steps:

– Makeup brush to be cleaned
– Facial cleanser/baby shower gel
– Clean sponge
– Soft towel

1. Begin by thoroughly washing your hands.
2. Wet the sponge and the makeup brush with warm water, then squeeze out the excess water. Apply a small amount of baby shower gel onto the surface of the sponge and gently brush the makeup brush to remove any dirt. For brushes used with soft creams like lip brush, foundation brush, or concealer brush, it is recommended to use facial cleanser instead of baby shower gel for better cleansing power.
3. Clean the brush under running water, ensuring that you are brushing in the direction of the bristles. Carefully check if the brush is completely clean. If necessary, repeat steps 2 and 3 1-2 more times until the brush is thoroughly clean.
4. After cleaning, lightly squeeze the brush with your fingers to remove excess water. If there are still suds, rinse the brush again.
5. Use a soft towel soaked in antiseptic alcohol or rubbing alcohol to clean the handle of the brush.
6. After drying the brush with a soft towel, place the brush horizontally on a towel in a well-ventilated area to allow it to dry.
7. It is recommended to let the brush dry directly under the sun and air dry. Alternatively, you can use a cool hair dryer to speed up the drying process.

– Avoid soaking makeup brushes in water for cleaning, as it can damage the glue that attaches the bristles.
– Whenever possible, allow the brushes to air dry under the sun and air. If needed, use a cool hair dryer after the brushes have air dried.
