A 27-year-old mum in Australia thinks that the staph infection she’s been fighting for THREE MONTHS now with super-strong antibiotics was caused by, yes, a dirty makeup brush, according to this story in The Independent.
The woman is now *in a wheelchair* after the infection attacked her spine and left her in pain, her local newspaper, the Warwick Daily News wrote. She was initially told she may never walk again. The dirty brush has been isolated as the most likely culprit for the situation.
Wash. Your. Brushes.
There are lots of ways to clean a dirty makeup brush, some more easy than others, but the important thing is just to do it.
The best way to tell a dirty brush: smell it. If it smells funky, that’s probably bacteria. Which causes acne. And can apparently attack your other body parts.
