After picking up brand new makeup brushes, you cannot wait to try them on your face. But hold on, please firstly wash your makeup brushes before they touch your skin. 

You may think it is unnecessary since the brushes are new and still sealed in the package, so they must be clean and germ-free. It is a misunderstanding, here we list the following reasons of why you need to clean your brand new brushes before first use.

From the production process aspect: There will be a small amount of floating hairs left inside the brush bristles during  production process,or some dye fading during hair dyeing process, washing can remove these floating hairs and dye fading, and also get rid of the strong and unpleasant glue scent. Also,  since makeup brush is a manual product, workers from makeup brush manufacturers have to touch brushes during production, even if they wear gloves and the workshop is dust-free workshop, The makeup brushes still  have the possibility to collect dusts or dirt. They may have been keeping in the makeup brush factory for months, collecting dust, dirt, and who knows maybe germs too, before they were packaged and shipped to the stores.

If you buy a makeup brush  at your local department store or drugstore, especially if the bristles were exposed, maybe countless hands, faces, and who knows what else has touched them before you, so you should definitely give it a wash! Even if you've ordered a new makeup brush enclosed in a package,  still wash it.

If you buy a makeup brush from a online shop, there also may be dusts or dirt enter into the packages or makeup brushes, so firstly wash and clean it before use.

Washing will not only remove dusts, dirt and smell, but also help soften and condition your brushes, and extend their lifetime.

Clean a brand new makeup brush is very easy,  If you have no special brush cleanser, you can just wash it  with shampoo under running waters, and air dry it.

The makeup brushes are gonna come into contact with your skin, so you need to make sure they are clean and sterilized before you use them, otherwise you run the risk of them making you break out or, worse, give you an infection.
