I hate to break this to you, but makeup can be disgusting. Think about it, most makeup products are in a liquid format and to use them, you often have to use your fingertips which can be home to several kinds of germs. The makeup product that is most prone to bacterial contamination is a makeup sponge. Makeup sponges are usually made with foam, and they tend to absorb a lot of the product you use. Hence, if they’re not cleaned, the damp environment serves as a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. So if you use dirty makeup sponges, it’s like inviting breakouts to appear on your face. That’s why cleaning makeup sponges is essential if you want to preserve the health of your skin and prolong the life of your makeup sponge. So without any further ado, here are three ways you can clean your makeup sponge:
This method is simple and quick. This method will gently clean your sponge, so it’s ideal to do after every use.
This method will give you better results than the previous method. It will thoroughly clean your makeup sponge so you can do this method once a week.
This method will help you get rid of the bacteria present in the makeup sponge since there’s heat sterilisation involved.
