Everyone always says to skip the heavy foundation if you’re acne prone, but it turns out the product itself might not be what’s messing with your skin.
According to Cosmopolitan.com , the nasty bacteria living on dirty makeup brushes could cause zits to form. And unfortunately for your lazy-girl soul, the only way to clean them off is to actually clean them.
Ideally, you should do deep clean and condition all your makeup brushes once a week, but makeup artists Robin Black says that those used on creamy products should be washed even more frequently.
« Brushes that are exposed to cream product (liquid foundation, cream blush, concealer, lipstick, etc.) are more prone to attract dirt and bacteria compared to brushes used for powder products, » Black told Cosmopolitan.com. « Therefore, you should cleanse them more often to keep acne flareups from occurring. »
Scrub your foundation brush after every other use and lather up your powder brush after every four uses. Then, proceed to be fabulous and zit free.
