How to clean Make-up brushes – Handy Tips

Hygiene is a must when it comes to make-up care. It is essential to wash your make-up brushes regularly especially if you use them on daily basis. You should wash them every 4-6 weeks. This will not only stop bacteria from developing but also keep your brushes well soft and in excellent condition.
After cleaning always reshape brushes and lay them flat on a small towel to dry for at least 8 hours or preferably overnight.
You can clean your brushes using a professional brush cleanser or a more cost effective way is to use a mild baby shampoo or mild facial cleanser and mild antiseptic solution.
Here are a few helpful tips:
·         If using a brush cleanser, you should dab some cleanser onto a paper towel and sweep your brush through it several times as though you are painting.
The advantage of using a brush cleanser is that the brushes will dry much more quickly which is great if you need to use them soon after cleaning.
·         If using a mild shampoo or cleanser dilute it and gently clean your brushes using tepid water.
·         Instead of using an antiseptic solution you can dilute 2 parts water to 1 part vinegar and then rinse with tepid water.
·         Never soak your brushes or wet handles. This could cause wooden handles to swell and or bristles to fall out.
·         Never use a hair dryer to dry your brushes. This will damage the bristles.
