Keep makeup kit clean

New Delhi, Sep 13 (IANS) Adhering to a skincare regime is one way of keeping your skin healthy. But if you neglect your makeup kit, you are inviting problems. Be it brushes or the containers in which you keep your blush-on, lipstick, eyeshadow and more, make sure to clean them, says a makeup expert.

Makeup artist Megha Puri explains how to maintain makeup kit hygiene:

- Take care of brushes: Brushes, used to put colour on eyes, lips and cheeks, attract bacteria. Daily wash is not required, but it should be done once a week. You just need a mild shampoo and a glass filled with water to remove the dirt. But dry them after washing as moisture is not good for makeup.

- Wash makeup containers: Use a piece of cloth soaked in mild shampoo to clean the containers. Do it once a month and keep them dry too.

- Replace mascara every three months: The eye makeup product attracts bacteria. Since it also dries up soon, it is best to buy a new one after every three months.

- Throw away old products: Check your kit after every six months and get rid of products that have crossed expiry date.
