Acne-Safe Makeup Tools

As important as your makeup and skin care regimens are, brushes and other skincare tools are the key to achieving the results you demand.

In fact, many of us develop an almost obsessive devotion to our favorite brushes, sponges, applicators and other tools. Yet, makeup users are notorious for not caring for their brushes and tools properly. Even if you are not prone to breakouts, dirty brushes can lead to skin irritation and clogged pores.

If you do have sensitive or acne-prone skin, using the wrong skincare and makeup tools—or those that haven’t been cared for properly – can be a recipe for disaster.


Are You Taking Care of Your Skincare Tools?

If you’re like a large percentage of people, you probably are not taking care of your makeup applicators and other skincare tools as you should.

In fact, one study found that almost 40% of respondents admitted to not cleaning their makeup brushes at least once a month. A whopping 22% admitted to never cleaning their skincare tools.

If you have sensitive skin, or if you are prone to acne flareups, using dirty makeup tools can cause chronic breakouts. Unfortunately, even if you do take good care of your skincare tools, it might not be enough to prevent problems for acne-prone skin.


Can Makeup Brushes Cause Acne?

We know that dirty skincare tools can be problematic, but did you realize that the implements themselves also matter?

Some types of makeup brushes can cause skin irritation, based on their materials and/or the design of the implement. Irritating sensitive skin can lead to reddening and excess oil production. This encourages the buildup of acne-causing bacteria that can then become trapped in the pores.

The results could be new acne flareups and the worsening of existing breakouts.
