A refreshing shampoo – to clean all the dirt and makeup deeply
Olive oil – to break down the makeup and the colors
Neem face wash – to remove all the germs
An aloe vera toner – to keep brushes fresh and soft
⦁ Any essential oil – to add a nice scent and to keep brushes fresh
⦁ A thin striped sponge pad – acts as a scrubbing pad
⦁ A small tub
⦁ Fresh water


⦁ Take a small tub and place that sponge pad nicely into that tub. Now add some water in the tub so that the sponge gets immersed in the water. Keep it like this for around 5 minutes. The sponge will absorb water during this time.

⦁ Next, add some refreshing shampoo according to the quantity of water. Then add a few drops of olive oil on the sponge.

⦁ After this, add some neem face wash and some soothing toner into the tub. Don’t mix these ingredients with your hand. Let them stay intact.
