Most of us shower in the morning for a refreshing day at work but forgets to wash down after work.

  • You don’t clean your makeup brushes.

Cleaning your makeup brushes on a regular basis is a fundamental aspect of a good skincare routine. If not properly cleaned, makeup brushes can carry hordes of bacteria that can cause serious damage to the skin. The dirt also hidden inside the bristles causes them to deteriorate quicker, affecting your makeup application.

Clean your tools regularly. You should spritz your brushes once a week with a cleansing spray and deep clean them once a month with shampoo or gentle soap.
