Hey Katherine girls! We know how much you care about using makeup that’s all natural, non toxic and cruelty free. But no matter how amazing your makeup products are, you won’t be able to get the radiant, flawless look you love if your tools aren’t up to the task.
That’s why we’re got this tip for you: clean your makeup brushes and sponges! We’ve made it super simple. Just follow our Katherine Natural Cosmetics step-by-step guide to cleaning your makeup brushes and sponges.
Why You Clean Makeup Brushes & Sponges
We get it! Cleaning your makeup brushes and sponges can seem like a real time suck. But here’s truth. The bacteria, dirt and oil living in these products can cause break outs, skin irritation and even eye infections. Pretty gross, right? So do yourself – and your skin – a favor and clean your brushes and sponges regularly.
To keep bacteria from growing in your makeup tools, dermatologists recommend you clean makeup brushes at least once a month and sponges at least once a week. Cleaning these items is actually really easy — and inexpensive — to do.
The only tools you need are fresh water, a bowl, and of course, soap. Here at Katherine Natural Cosmetics, we like to use cleaning products that are made without dyes or chemicals like parabens, sulfates or phthalates (just like all our cosmetics!).
There are several inexpensive cleaning products on the market these days. Some are made specifically made for cleaning beauty tools, like Beauty Blender’s liquid cleanser.
A bar of soap or a bit of baby shampoo will also work. And we also like Dr. Bonner’s organicsoaps which are made with vegetable oils instead of synthetic detergents or animal fat.
