HOW TO CLEAN MAKEUP SPONGES
Your face deserves a clean makeup sponge.
As you may well be rinsing your cosmetics sponge after use (hopefully), you are only removing the top layer of makeup. Hate to break it to you, but there’s likely something foul (germs, bacteria, etc) hiding in the inner workings of your blender. And, if you should be getting acne in your cheeks, star aesthetician Shani Darden says your dirty tools or phones could be rationale. For your phone, your skin expert told E! News,”I travel with alcohol pads in my purse in any respect times to guarantee germs and dirt are not left these, which can be rubbing against my head”–easy enough. For the cosmetics sponge, the remedy is just as straightforward.
It is possible to purchase a cleaner, specially built to clean out the sponge, like the wonder blender Solid Makeup Sponge Cleanser. Or, you can grab the bar soap that is already at the corner of your bathroom sink and have to perform. The drying nature of soap will help to suck out whatever moisture, makeup and germs that’s hiding on the tool, and the good bar allows to get a base to rub on the sponge onto, raising the yank and potency. Any pub soap is going to do.
Follow the steps below to maintain your beauty blender clean!
Place your messy cosmetics sponge under warm water and then give it a squeeze to wash out excess makeup.
Wet your bar of soap and then rub it in both hands until it produces a soapy lather.
Rub your blender over the soap, making sure to wash up every component of the sponge.
Squeeze the blender to ensure the cleaner has effortlessly made its way throughout the middle.
Squeeze and rinse until the sponge is clean.
Set out to dry.
