A YOUNG WOMAN has warned people to clean their makeup brushes after contracting ring worm from them.
Louaira, from the UK, had no idea what was wrong with her skin but decided to share a video of it to TikTok after noticing 'burn marks' appear near her lips.
With the help of followers, who pointed out that her rash looked like ringworm, the beauty fan went to the doctor where she was diagnosed with the condition.
But Louaira was not happy when she realised that it could have come from her makeup brushes.
In one video, the young woman said: I Know sharing is caring but best believe I'm not letting anyone touch my makeup brushes, or sponges, or any form of makeup again."
In another TikTok video posted to her account, she warned: "your sign to clean EVERYTHING, especially makeup brushes, sponges and towels."

What is ringworm?
Ringworm is a common fungal infection. It's not caused by worms.
The main symptom of ringworm is a rash. It may look red, silver or darker than surrounding skin, depending on your skin tone.
The rash may be scaly, dry, swollen or itchy and appear anywhere on the body.
It can be passed on through close contact with:
- an infected person or animal
- infected objects – such as bedsheets, combs or towels
- infected soil – although this is less common
