Whatever Touches Your Face 4-8-22 Tip of the Day
A friendly reminder to all my beauties: Remember to clean the items that regularly touch your face!
Beauty blenders, foundation and concealer brushes should be cleaned at least once a week with gentle soap and water. This helps prevent breakouts (and makes for better product application). After cleaning your brushes, squeeze out excess moisture with a towel. Re-form the brush head back to its shape and let it dry hanging off the edge of a counter. Never let your brushes dry on a towel! The bristles can turn mildewy.
Wipe down your phone and any accessories (headphones, ear buds) weekly with an anti-bacterial wipe. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, try wiping your phone down daily. Be careful not to get moisture into any ports!
Washing pillow cases once a week helps cut down on breakouts. (Every couple months, give your actual pillow a wash). If you have sensitive skin, dermatologists suggest using a fragrance-free detergent and avoid fabric softener. Try stocking up on pillow cases so you can change them out, even if you miss a weekly wash.
