When it comes to beauty routines, most of us are experienced. Moisturiser, matte base foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush... Make-up enthusiasts know how to apply them, when to apply them, and on which parts of the face. While many are familiar with these techniques, there remains a problem point which unfortunately is common to many women.
Daily use of a filthy product
While the quality of the products you apply to your face is important, so is hygiene. And yet many people skip this element. How does this happen? By simply neglecting the cleanliness of their makeup accessories. For example, 2 out of 5 women almost never wash their brushes.
This surprising figure emerged from a survey launched by My Little Box and the cosmetics brand Mac on a panel of 2000 women aged between 15 and 60 years old. The aim of the survey was to learn more about women and their makeup habits.
Makeup brushes a bacteria trap
Brushes often help to apply most of our make-up products. Whether powdery or liquid textures, they help to deposit the material on the skin and work it in.
But once the brush's job is done, it is rarely cleaned. For example, when left to dry on the edge of the bathroom sink it can trap many microbes and dust particles. The next time you use it, these residues then settle directly on your skin and can cause severe skin reactions.
Think you are not affected because you use a beauty blender? The consequences are the same. Hygiene is important so that you don't risk the growth of bacteria on your skin and the appearance of spots and other blemishes.
