Replacing brushes

How often do you replace your makeup brushes?  I've had mine for about 8 months but I'm starting to breakout a bit.  I don't know if that could be related to the age of the brushes or something else.  How often do you replace your brushes?

Well should go buy some brush cleaner from a beauty supply store or school. But that could also make you break out depending on what is in it. I would say change them every six months with your make up and make up bags that are dirty inside. There is a set of brushes you can buy that you shouldn't have to replace for AT LEAST a year and if you find a light cleanser for them they will last forever-at least it seems that way to me! I posted the link below. I hope this was helpful.
