Because you know they're dirty.
Cooseon trusts you to be very diligent about washing your face every night. Maybe right after you remove your makeup if you're still wearing it.
You've probably purchased an expensive product or two to treat your skin like it deserves to be treated, perhaps in hopes of getting some anti-aging results or avoiding those annoying adult acne that won't leave you alone.
Or maybe it's just because you like your skin to feel clean, fresh, and hydrated before bed.
But if you take such good care of your face, why wouldn't you do the same for what's on your face? To be honest, when was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? Two weeks? Three weeks? A month?
Do you remember?
Whether you wear makeup every day or only for special occasions, your brushes are bound to get dirty - and not washing dirty brushes leads to stiff, clumpy bristles filled with bacteria. Oops.
But you probably already knew that.
I'm sure you know how dirty makeup brushes and sponges are and how they collect the excess product, dead skin cells, and bacteria from your face. The dirt runs from your face to your makeup and then back to your face.
Again. And then again. And then again.
(This is probably why you're still breaking out after trying everything, FYI).
Also, the bristles of dirty makeup brushes are stiffer, making the actual application and blending process more difficult than it needs to be.
Come on, now. You're a grown woman. You don't have unprotected casual sex, you have a savings account with real money in it, and you've managed to streamline your closet into a semi-minimalist, high-quality, stylish fashion selection that perfectly encapsulates the essence of who you are. (It's not a capsule closet because, let's face it, 30 pieces aren't nearly enough, but you're proud of yourself.)
But somehow, cleaning your makeup brushes is something that slips through the cracks. It's the one thing you vow to do on Sundays, but then it rains on Sundays, and you curl up on the couch with popcorn and watch a movie, and then you forget about it altogether.
Or you pick up those damn brushes, take them to the sink, and then you look at the clock and realize that when you're done, there's no way they'll be dry in time for your makeup the next morning. So, you put off cleaning until next week and the next time you happen to remember sometime.
Well, I'm here to tell you that this is the next time you remember. Let me remind you now to stop making excuses.
After all, how often should you wash your makeup brushes? The American Academy of Dermatology says to wash them every 7 to 10 days.
I'm sure you know this, but there are products that are specifically designed to clean makeup brushes. Mild shampoos or clarifying shampoos also work well. You can use a cleaning pad or other textured surface to help you clean. Mine is just a piece of Velcro with a hooked edge, and it works great. After dipping the tip of the brush in water and adding brush cleaner, simply swirl the tip of the brush over the textured surface and rinse until the water becomes clear.
Remember not to allow water to seep from the tip into the brush handle, as this will cause the glue to loosen and the brush to fall apart. Always dry the brush upside down or on a surface with the brush head tilted slightly downward.
Grown women will not let their brushes fall out because of poor maintenance.
Now that you've finished this article, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and wash it. You can thank me later.
