A celebrity makeup artist has revealed what really happens to your skin if you don’t clean your beauty brushes every week – and why it’s just as important as washing your hands.

Alphie Sadsad, the national artist of Sephora Australia, said that washing your tools should be a regular part of your beauty routine, rather than looking at it as a chore.

“There are so many reasons it’s important to keep your tools clean. One of the main reasons is to keep your makeup brushes hygienic, ”Alphie told FEMAIL.

“Your brushes, sponges and hands accumulate a lot of bacteria if they are not cleaned. When you don’t wash your brushes or your hands, bacteria and dirt from the environment naturally gather around it.

“A dirty brush or sponge is a primary breeding ground for nasty bacteria that can intensify your acne and other skin conditions.”

How to wash your makeup brushes

Use a liquid cleaner to gently spin your brushes in warm water and on the surface of the soap, gently rubbing the bristles to remove and dissolve dirt or residue.

2. Rinse with clean water and gently squeeze any remaining moisture from the brush.

3. Lay flat to dry, place on a soft towel. Place the brush head on the edge of the bench so that excess water can drip into your sink.

4. When storing your beauty tools, keep the glass containers of used candles to store brushes in, handle down.

Alphie said that dirty brushes can contain oil and bacteria that destroy the skin.

“Dirty brushes are full of oily makeup residue, dead skin cells and bacteria, which is not a good combination if you want to prevent breakouts,” he said.

Dirty brushes and sponges can do much more damage than simple pimples on your skin. Using the same makeup tools every day can lead to harmful bacteria.

“Brushes are also 10 times more effective after cleaning.”

He suggested to ‘deep clean’ your brushes weekly.

“I’ve always found that cleaning your brushes at night for your nighttime skincare routine works best because it helps dry your tools and get them ready for the morning,” Alphie said.

As for your sponges, this should be done every day immediately after each use. Because sponges retain more moisture and are a breeding ground for bacteria. Tip: use an egg cup to store and dry your sponges. ‘
