A lot of us use our makeup brushes on a daily basis making it super important that we give them the TLC that they need, by keeping them clean and most importantly keeping your skin clean. Coconut oil is known for its antibacterial properties, and for being the best ingredient to solve most (some) problems. In case you haven’t fallen in love with the magic oil already, you will now! Not only is it good for you inside & out but it’s also healthy for your makeup brushes too! Is there anything that coconut oil cannot do?
Not only can unclean brushes spread bad bacteria onto your skin resulting in breakouts, but not cleaning your makeup brushes can also lead to bad makeup application due to product build up. And no one wants patchy bronzer am I right?
Why you’ll love this tip: It’s kind to your skin, easy and inexpensive.
- Apply a tablespoon of melted coconut oil onto your brush, swirl the brush on the back of your hand until the product transfers.
- Next, wash your brush under running water.
- Repeat the process until the brush is completely clean.
- Finally, leave your brushes out for a few hours until they are completely dry.
Your makeup brushes are good to use & they’ll smell delicious, you can thank us later.
