Not only can keeping your makeup clean help to keep your eyes healthy, but it can also help to prevent breakouts!
This is also true for your makeup brushes! If you use brushes or reusable sponges to apply makeup, these should be washed frequently (and if you have acne, consider spraying your brush down with alcohol after use or finding a daily brush cleaner).
𝐍𝐨𝐰, 𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞’𝐬 𝐚 𝐏𝐒𝐀 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐰𝐡𝐨 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐮𝐩 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐝 “𝐜𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧:” you’ll want to change your makeup out more frequently than conventional makeup products. Unfortunately, one of the major trade offs when it comes to products labelled “clean” is a lack of significant preservatives (like parabens). Research shows that ingredients like citric acid, vitamins/antioxidants and other common forms of “clean preservatives” just don’t stand up to bacteria, fungus and other microorganisms for the long haul. So, as long as you are continuing to be diligent about switching out old product, you should have few, if any, issues!
