According to a Beauty in the Bag poll conducted earlier this year, 70% of us arenâ€™t washing our makeup brushes as often as we shouldâ€”and hereâ€™s how often we actually do itâ€¦
Once a week: 30%
Every 3 months: 27%
Every 3-6 months: 20%
This is disturbing, considering weâ€™ve all be told that washing our makeup brushes regularly is as important as washing our faces each night going to bed. The purported reasoning behind this cosmetic edict is that dirty makeup brushes are a breeding ground for bacteria, but this isnâ€™t actually the case, according to board-certified dermatologist Lisa Donofrio, MD of New Haven, Connecticut.
