All products mentioned in this podcast episode can be found here in our spa shop.
Thank you for supporting our channel and website when you purchase a product from our online spa shop! It really does matter! We test out all the products in our store and use these brands.
Let’s begin by cleaning up our makeup brushes
1) Use Dr. Bronner’s pure Castille soap or another natural soap you love. Use a couple of drops with lukewarm water to protect your bristles. Swirl your brushes around and rinse. It’s also nice to use a silicone pad to have some friction while cleaning.
2) You can also do a double cleanse if needed by using out 2 tbsp. of distilled vinegar in water and do the same technique as above.
3) Air dry your brushes by placing them on the silicone mat to dry.
4) Try to wash your brushes once a week if they are used often to prevent bacteria and breakouts on your skin.
5) Don’t forget about those beauty blenders! I love to use an antimicrobial beauty blender. It is at a higher price point, but it’s worth it. We don’t want to spread bacteria all over our face.
Microneedle dermaroller: I love using this at home one, it is a must in your skincare routine! I talk about it all the time in my esthetician led skincare community, lapree beauty.
- Rinse off any residue
- Use 70% isopropyl alcohol spray. Leave on and for a few minutes and then rinse off. Alcohol dries really quickly. You can leave it on, but I prefer to rinse it off.
- I do a second cleanse by soaking a denture tablet into warm water for about 10 minutes and then rinse and air dry. I like to air dry on this silicone mat and I found some soft silicone round containers that are excellent to store the rollers in or store them in the case they came in. You definitely want to store your derma roller to prevent dust from accumulating on the roller. Who wants to press dust into their skin? Um, no thank you.
Other items to clean with 70% isopropyl alcohol:
- Your razor if you shave your face. Get a cotton round and wipe the blade
- Your cold ice roller. Also clean with a cleanser about once a week.
- Your makeup bag-how often do you clean that?? Think about all that bacteria just hanging out. Same with your purse pockets
- Your phone: I clean my phone every single day. It’s literally against your face every day so why would you not clean that? I just swipe a presoaked cotton rounds with alcohol and wipe it down. I also have a flip top sanitizer at my spa, but I really want the clean station. It’s pretty pricey but wow-it rids 99 % germs in 30 seconds, and you just slide your phone in the compartment. So easy!
For all the other items I can, listen to our Spa Skin and Beauty podcast linked above! I need to head to my spa to give a facial! I really enjoyed this cleaning podcast with my esthetician sis and bestie, Ashley! Hope you enjoy all the information and the laughs. Oh, and I organized all the products mentioned in this episode here in our skincare and beauty shop.
