I had never suffered from acne. I had always had pretty normal skin. I liked to pile on the makeup from time to time, but I had never experienced my skin like this before. I was getting breakouts everyday, black heads, clogged pores, sandpaper texture on my skin and bad discoloration. One day I did something that I had no idea would save my skin.
I PUMPED HAND SOAP ON TO MY MAKEUP SPONGE.
It's true! It may sound dumb or obvious but it changed my skin completely and here is how.
I THOUGHT I WAS KEEPING MY SKIN CLEAN.
Even though I washed my sponges, it didn't mean there wasn't bacteria building up between washes that I was putting back on my skin.
Every time before I wet my sponge, I pumped one pump of foaming hand wash on it, wet it and rung it out. It works miracles on removing makeup as well as killing bacteria. Not only does it keep your skin free of bacteria, it saves you money by saving your sponges with the minimal upkeep. My sponge has lasted substantially longer than ever before as well as being cleaner than ever before.
IT CHANGED MY SKIN, SERIOUSLY.
I was killing bacteria right before I used it so there was no chance to transfer it to my sensitive skin. This helped from triggering breakouts.The sponge did not have leftover makeup on it and was no longer clogging pores and causing excess blackheads. There wasn't texture piling up on my skin and it was less irritated and even.
It might seem obvious, but most of us don't clean our sponges everyday and end up putting bacteria all over our skin. This is a quick tip that just might help your skin and save your money. It really really saved mine and every person who I have gotten to try my little tip has never turned back.
