Cleaning Your Brushes

*I use dishshoap with antibacterial & Olive Oil.( Olive oil makes the brushes SOFT & gets rid of makeup stuck on your brushes)

*Next, you pour some in a bowl/dish
*Dip a dirty brush into the soap & olive oil

* Add a little water & scrub against your palm & rinse with warm water

* & it's super clean!

* I like to roll it in toilet paper to catch the excess moisture and that way when it dries , it dries in a nice form instead of it being all ugly. ( Also, I place the brush upside down to dry so the water can drip down & not stay in the bristle because that causes they brush to break.)

* & Your done.! Here are some pictures of other brushes I cleaned.

Lip Exfoliant

                 *Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Sugar*                 
                  *Mix the Olive oil & sugar in a bowl
                  * With a toothbrush pick up a bit  & scrub as if you were brushing your                 
                   teeth  in circular motions for about 1 minute or 2.
                  * Rinse with warm water & pat dry with a towel.
                  * Optional* Apply Vitamin E Oil On your lips. Or Chap Stick

I do this about once a week to keep my lips smooth and pretty! The Olive oil Protects & Conditions your lips from being chapped and is a wonderful moisturizer. The Sugar as you scrub picks up all the build-up. The Vitamin E also helps prevent skin damage from free radicals & the suns ultaviolet rays. Vitamin E is an Antioxidant & Antioxidants are used in many products because they are believe to be anti-aging as well.
