Breakout tip: keeping bacteria off your face

image

Frequent breakouts? Have you recently washed out your make-up tools? Brushes and sponges all carry bacteria and need to be washed and dryed regularly. Another important trick to remember is to wash your pillowcases regularly as you put your face there every night!
I wash my make-up brushes at least once a month and I use a chemical free shampoo by ONESTA to wash them with. Make sure to lay brushes flat to dry, if you put them standing up water seeps into the brush base and breaks down the adhesives and can actually cause more bacteria growth and shorten the life of your brush.

4. Visible streaks when sing the Liquid Foundation brush or pores look more obvious
