This is how you should clean your brushes, brushes, brushes, dryer and other beauty tools
One in two women has fallen asleep with the makeup set (60%) or has used dirty makeup brushes and brushes.It sounds like something, right?The main problem is that insufficient or harmful cleaning habits can cause skin damage.Hence, it is not only mandatory that you follow a correct daily hygiene of your face and body, but you also have to pay attention to the cleaning of your beauty utensils.
"Although makeup carries preservatives, in liquid texture can grow microorganisms that can generate infectious pathologies such as folliculitis (infected hairs) or boils (granites)," warns the DRA.Elena Martínez Lorenzo, dermatologist at the Pilar de Frutos clinic.That is why it is important that you properly clean your makeup utensils after each use.And you should not neglect the maintenance of hair, since “bacterial overgrowth in them is also possible.If you share the brush with someone, both bacteria and fungi can be transmitted, which could cause lesions of seborrheic dermatitis or versicolor pityriasis (spots and peeling on the scalp).Not to mention that parasites such as bars and lice can also be transferred ”.OMG!
Give this over fire: beauty utensils must be unipersonal and frequent cleaning and hygiene (better if you always do it after each use) will not only avoid possible skin conditions, but also prolong their life useful life.
Brushes and brushes
Experts advise to clean the makeup tools well after each use, but, let's be realistic, who really does it?If you have never been the most applied in the cosmetics class, you will at least have to review the brushes and brushes after each use.“Spray a tisu or paper napkin with a cleaner spray and carefully touch the surface with the sows until any rest of makeup removing.In addition, this gesture will also disinfect the utensil, ”recommends Silvia Quirós, makeup artist and consultant from Maiko.
And once a week (you can carry out this task while the mask acts on your face or on your hair), it will have to do “a deep cleaning with soap and water, only in the brushes with which you apply liquid products, andThat those you use to extend powder makeup have enough with the spray, ”adds Quirós.Choose “A delicate, specific for brushes or one of baby, add a minimum amount on the tool, previously moistened in water, and rub with the fingertips.Repeat until you see that there is no residue left.Clarifies well and lets dry with the bristles down to prevent their glue from getting wet and falls, ”he concludes.If you follow these guidelines, your brushes and brushes will last five years, without problem;Even if you do not despair if you see that the brush with which you make the ‘eyeliner’ does not stand so much, because it must be renewed every six months if you use it daily.
You believe it or not, you should wash your makeup sponge after each use.“Since you have to wet it to use it, take the opportunity to give it a quick wash after.You just have to rub it on the soap tablet - those of the Beautyblender brand protect 99.6 % against harmful germs and 99.9 % against harmful germs even 24 hours after washing -, gently tighten it and rinse to eliminateAny excess cleaner or water, ”says Rea Ann Silva, founder and CEO of Beautyblender.Then it is important that the dry air, in an open and clean place, since a closed and humid atmosphere becomes a culture field for bacteria.If you follow these tips, it will not be necessary for you to lend other specific care every so often and "you will not have to change it up to 3-6 months later, depending on how often you use it," he adds.
Brushes and combs
Both brushes and combs have a useful life of only one year and this is due, not only that they are utensils that we use daily on a surface that is not always clean (unless you wash your head every day every day), but also to accumulate many mites, although you are careful with its maintenance.To have your perfect combing instruments Caroline Grayl, president of Leonor Grayl warns: "Clean the brushes once a week withdrawing with a comb the hair that may be trapped in it".
And once a month you have to do a deeper cleaning, removing the hair first, and then immersing the brush in water with alcohol to disinfect.But you have to take into account what the material of each tool is: “Plastic or metal brushes can be completely immersed and leave for a few minutes.Those who have a fabric padding at the base better to pass them vigorously through soapy water and not leave them inside so as not to deteriorate them, as is the case with wooden handle, ”says Eduardo Sánchez, director of Maison Eduardo Sánchez.Likewise, you also have to keep in mind that the brushes that have pad "have to be pressured to eliminate the water inside," says Grayl.Finally, let the pieces dry in the sink and never on a radiator.
Plates and dryer
Most likely, you use (and even abuse) the dryer and plates more than you should.On the other hand, you surely had not considered that both frequently have to be cleaned.“For proper maintenance of the first one you have to clean the rear filter, which is where the air enters.It is very easy: dash.How often?Every ten uses, more or less.
“It is also important to keep the plates of the plates clean so that they slide correctly.It is enough that you review a damp cloth when they are cold and the disagreed device, ”adds Molinero, who also emphasizes that it is crucial to“ wrap the cable without tightening ”, so that the 'gadgets' last longer.
Limas and eyelashes
Had you ever occurred to you that it is also necessary to clean nail files and eyelashes?We feel to be those that give you the disgust, but it is (and much).The biggest problem that the first have is that when the dust adheres to the surface it remains limited efficacy.An easy and infallible trick is to pass a medium toothbr.
The curling is also delicate, since it will go to a better life in less than two years, and that only if you usually treat it wonderfully.To do this it will have to clean it after each use with a cotton impregnated in micellar water or a specific eye cleaner and change the rubber every three months (if you use it frequently) or ten if it is not so.In addition, you must be very careful to observe that a cleft is not made in that rubber, since this could damage your eyelashes.
