We all remember to wash our clothes, clean our homes, but we tend to forget to clean our makeup brushes. It’s a thing we must do in order to maintain healthy and beautiful skin. That is why I am sharing with you How to Naturally Clean Makeup Brushes so your skin can always look and feels it’s best!

How to Naturally Clean Makeup Brushes

If you feel like you have been breaking out a lot lately no matter what you do, then your makeup brushes is probably the culprit. Makeup brushes have a ton of bacteria so they need to be cleaned regularly which many of us forget to do. It’s recommended they are cleaned at least once a week (who knew?)! If you are running short on time then don’t worry because I have a simple and natural way you can clean those makeup brushes in no time!

Supplies Needed to Naturally Clean Makeup Brushes:

How to Naturally Clean Makeup Brushes:

  1. Pour some extra-virgin olive oil onto the brush. Try to keep it on the top of bristles and massage the bristles lightly with your fingers.
  2. Next take the liquid castille soap or hand-soap and mix it a bit with water. My brush was really dirty so I decided to put the soap directly on the bristles. Again try to keep it away from the bottom to avoid the bristles from loosening and falling out.
  3. Dip your brush in a little bit of vinegar (again you can pour a little on instead) and then rinse with hot water.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 as needed until you feel all the build up of makeup is gone and it looks clean.
  5. Ring out any excess water and allow your brushes to air dry overnight.

That’s it! Now you will have naturally cleaned brushes and best of all no more breakouts!

Loreina you are welcome for the tip. I actually hadn't cleaned my make-up brushes either (life happens right?) and when it finally clicked that was probably the reason I was breaking out, I searched for a way to naturally clean my brushes. Good luck cleaning your brushes and I hope these tricks work for you :)
