Hii my beauties !!
How is your week going by far? This week has flown by so fast!! And tomorrow is FRIDAYY!!! Who is excited ??
So, today I will talk about the expiration dates on make-up! Yes, this is a very important aspect of make-up. How long is too long to keep a make-up item with you?
You have to consider that it’s going directly to your skin, and you should be as carefull as possible about that. Because if it’s expired, it can damage your skin, and we don’t want that, right?
So let’s check for how long you should keep your make-up items!
- BEAUTY SPONGES AND LOOFAS: You should toss them out after 3-7 weeks of use, because the holes in the sponges house bacteria and if you use them for long they can break you out and create skin irritation.
- LIQUID EYELINERS AND MASCARAS: They are only good to use for 2 to 3 months, because of its liquid consistency they are prone to house bacteria and since it’s going to be used directly in the eye area it’s better to avoid bacteria filled products because it can create an eye infection.
- LIQUID/CREAM FOUNDATIONS, CONCEALERS, MOISTURIZERS, LIPGLOSSES: Again, because of its liquid and cream consistency, they go bad faster. They should be tossed out every 6 months to a year, and earlier if you feel that the texture, scent and color is changing.
- NAIL POLISHES, POWDER PRODUCTS, LIPSTICKS: They should be thrown away every 2-3 years, because of its powder consistency it can last you longer. But once the scent, pigmentation, consistency starts to change you should know that it’s time to TOSS IT OUT!
It is very important to keep track of the expiration dates on your products, if you use it even after they go bad they can break you out, create irritation and even an infection on your skin. So beware and keep track of your expiration dates !!!
Hope this was helpful to you guys !!!
