One of the most overlooked factors in keeping your face clear of blemishes is the bacteria that you’re subjecting your face to, vis-à-vis your own makeup tools. Make sure to wash your makeup brushes and sponges at least once a week. Baby shampoo is a good choice, so long as you get it all out and let brushes and sponges completely air-dry. This could make the difference for those with acne-prone skin. Keep in mind that bacteria build up quickly on any surface, particularly one that comes into contact with your skin. On that note, steer clear of department store disposable testers, because you never know if the previous customer double dipped.
