How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Chances are you don't wash them nearly as much as recommended and this holds some severe consequences. Just ask Katie Wright, a 21-year-old from Austin, Texas, who nearly died from using dirty brushes.
Wright woke up to what she suspected to be a "giant under the skin pimple" and proceeded to pop it as usual. Soon after, things took a turn for the worse.
Within an hour, her face started to swell up and intense pain began to set in.
"It felt like something was going to burst out of my skin," Wright wrote on Facebook.
She immediately went to the emergency room and she was told that she was lucky to have visited the ER when she did because "there was a huge risk of it [the infection] spreading to my brain or me [sic] eyes causing me to go blind."
Wright could've also lost her life.
What caused the infection on Wright's face?
