NY Post is reporting: Thinking of beautifying your face today? You could be giving yourself a fungus facial.
An alarming new UK study revealed that makeup brushes can be dirtier than a toilet — with microscopic photos showing the tools encrusted in mold, bacteria, yeast and other nightmarish microbes.
“It’s awful to see the amount of bacteria that could potentially sit on a makeup brush,” Dr. Suhail Alam, medical director at the Aventus Clinic which conducted the research, told Jam Press. The study aimed to show how these cosmetic accessories can turn into veritable microbe-breweries if not maintained properly — even after only being used a few times.
