The Fix: Beck recommends disinfecting brushes at least every three months. Swirl damp buffers in Sephora's Purifying Brush Shampoo ($6, Sephora) before letting them dry. You'll return to clean bristles minus the buildup.
9. Don't Wash Your Face in The Morning
Like your hair, your face benefits from a healthy amount of naturally secreted oils. Cleansing skin at the end of the day strips it of environmental factors such as pollution and dirt buildup as well as makeup. But washing it again in the morning is overkill. "So many women start their day with a cleanser and they don't need to," Ramos says. "There's nothing touching your face at night, so washing it in the morning just dries you out."
The Fix: Trade harsh cleansers for a warm washcloth or gentle wipes such as Korres' Milk Proteins Cleansing & Make-up Removing Wipes, which nourish and refresh a sleepy dermis ($12, Sephora).
