6. Wash Your Makeup Brushes Frequently
This is probably not news to makeup users – the oils on our skin transfer to makeup brushes and attract all kinds of dirt and germs. Using a dirty brush puts you at risk for breakouts, so it’s best to wash all your tools about once a week.
But this is about more than breakouts – those same dirty brushes can actually make you sick. They can become contaminated with bacteria that is quite dangerous. A Staph infection, for example, is potentially deadly. If the skin on your face is already broken, chapped, or blemished, it is that much easier for bacteria to take hold and make you sick. .
