In some unwritten rule every beauty care routine should begin with clean makeup and brushes because, it’s a fact that many cosmetic products like powder, foundation, eyeliner, mascara found in any woman purse could be a source of various bacteria. So, if you want to find out how to keep your cosmetics and makeup applicators clean read this article.
First rule, never touch or share any cosmetic product with anybody! The simplest and easiest way to handle makeup and not contaminate it is just don’t touch it and do not share it, especially when it comes to mascara! Plus, always use brushes to apply makeup for better results. After you are finished, clean your beauty care applicators thoroughly with soap and hot water. Do this every time you use them. Also, a brush cleaner is a great way to get rid of any bacteria and excess make-up. You can do the same thing with other applicators.
When it comes to cleaning your make-up, three make-up products need more attention than the rest: eyeliner, mascara and eye shadows. Eyeliner should be wiped off with alcohol after each use. And make sure to not use the eyeliner on the inner parts of the eyes, nor close to the tear ducts. On the other hand, if you want to avoid conjunctivitis and other eye infections, replace your mascara every three to four months. And be careful when using mascara not to touch or scratch the eyes and apply it only to the tips of the lashes. The third cosmetic product i.e. the eye shadow should be treated the same way as foundation and lipstick: Use it with a brush or spatula, not with bare hands.
And at the end never forget to replace all of the beauty care products once in a year. Only if you follow these few simple rules, you will be protected of catching any bacteria.
