Makeup sponges are necessary for any woman (or man) who wears makeup. They help to apply foundation, concealer, and other types of makeup evenly and smoothly. However, they can also be challenging to clean properly. If not cleaned correctly, bacteria can build up on the sponge and cause skin problems. In this article, we will discuss how to clean your makeup sponges in the best way possible so that you can extend their lifespan!
What You Will Need
A mild cleanser ( soap will do). A bowl or cup of warm water. A clean towel. Instructions: Start by wetting your sponge with warm water. Add a small amount of cleanser to the sponge and work it into a lather. Gently massage the sponge all over your face in circular motions. Rinse the sponge thoroughly with warm water until all traces of makeup and cleanser are gone. Squeeze out excess water and then place the sponge on a clean towel to dry. Repeat this process every day or as needed. With these simple instructions, you can easily clean your makeup sponges and extend their lifespan! Make sure to replace them every few months to stay fresh and compelling.
The first step is to find a good makeup sponge cleaner. You can find these cleaners at most beauty stores or online. Make sure to read the reviews before purchasing a cleaner so that you can find one that will work well for your sponges. Once you have found a good cleanser, it’s time to start cleaning!
Fill up your sink with warm water and add the recommended amount of cleaner to the water. Swirl your makeup sponges around in the water for a few minutes so that they can soak up the cleaner. After a few minutes, take each sponge out of the water and squeeze them out until they are no longer dripping wet. Next, run each sponge under warm water from the tap and squeeze them out again. Finally, lay your sponges out on a clean towel, allowing them to air dry completely.
If you follow these steps, your makeup sponges should be clean and free of any harmful bacteria. Additionally, by cleaning your sponges regularly, you will help extend their lifespan so that they can be used over and over again! And who doesn’t love saving money?
Cleaning your makeup sponge cleaner may seem like a tedious task, but it is definitely worth it in the long run! I hope this article was helpful and that you now feel confident about cleaning your makeup sponges. Thanks for reading!
