Why? Anything that touches your skin daily can hurt, or help, your skin.

Makeup brushes come into direct contact with your skin regularly.

They should get a good cleaning to prevent triggering an infection. Makeup brushes pick up minute traces of moisture, sweat and bacteria, and transfer them back and forth between product and skin. Over time, this can cause skin problems like acne, infection, and even contribute to atopic dermatitis (eczema) as well as other inflammatory skin conditions — 90% of people with atopic dermatitis have Staphylococcus aureus on their skins, which is linked to the inflammation of the skin condition.

In addition to proper cleaning, the brushes themselves can cause acne and irritations.
