Skin Care Tip of the Week *How to clean your makeup brushes*

When was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? If it has been over a month it’s time to get washing! It’s important to clean your brushes at least once a month.

Cleaning your makeup brushes regularly will extend the shelf life of your makeup and help prevent the spread of bacteria, which can cause nasty side effects such as eye infections, acne and skin irritation.

A super easy and effective way to clean your brushes is to use all natural or organic baby shampoo.


  1. Fill a small bowl with 1 cup of lukewarm water
  2. Add 1 tsp of baby shampoo ( I use Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash)
  3. Swirl your brushes in the mixture and use your fingers to gently clean each brush
  4. Rinse your brushes in lukewarm water to remove any soapy residue
  5. Reshape your brushes and lay flat to dry

Another way to clean your brushes is to use a mixture of 1 tsp of baking soda and 1 cup lukewarm water. Do the same routine as above.

So remember in order to keep your skin clear and free from unnecessary irritation clean your brushes monthly.
