Despite knowing makeup's not great for your skin, it's hard to leave the house without it. So to rectify that, most of us have become pros at removing day-old product before bed. This certainly helps, but according to celeb makeup artist Julianne Kaye, falling asleep in your makeup isn't actually the main reason you're breaking out.
"No seriously, in my opinion what gives us pimples are dirty brushes," noted the pro.
"Do you know how much nasty dirt and oil you're constantly putting back onto your skin? It's one big cause for breakouts," she reiterated. If you really think about it, it doesn't sound the most sanitary.
So what's Julianne's best practice for keeping her tools (and face) squeaky clean?
Once you've washed them carefully, simply squeeze the bristles out into the shape you want. Lay them down flat on a towel overnight to dry and in the morning they'll be good as new (a.k.a. ready for use)!
And, hey! If you do get a breakout, there's always Differin Gel!
