In the land of skincare sins, going to bed with makeup on is up there. Not only is it a good way to encourage breakouts, but did you know it can also make your skin age faster?

Many of us have taken to giving our face a good old scrub in the shower. Unfortunately, this is also a no-no. The water tends to be too hot and we often aren’t washing our hands before washing our faces — which exposes our open pours to any number of bacteria.

Luckily, you can quickly and easily remove your day’s look with a cleansing brush. These helpful tools not only remove makeup, these brushes also exfoliate. Just be sure you clean and store them properly to prevent your bush actually being the cause of future skin irritation.
