Makeup Break-up

September 7, 2016

 

 

A large choice of lipsticks, eyeliners and moisturizers might be a wonderful thing, but keeping too many old makeup items, means their efficiency starts to deteriorate. 

 

I often throw out old items, and so should you. Why?  Because keeping makeup and skin care too long renders them ineffective and may cause your skin to break out or get an infection.

 

Here are some basic rules to follow for knowing when to ditch some items:

  • It it starts to smell

  • If the texture changes. If a lotion looks too thick or too thin, dries out or becomes grainy, it won’t work effectively.

  • If your foundation looks muddy rather than radiant.

  • If its color changes.

  • Toss eye-shadow the second it starts to dry out or become flaky.

  • When mascara starts sticking to the brush, it will clump your lashes and could even cause infection. Make sure you replace it every three months regardless.

  • Eyeliner pencils can be sharpened, which means they can last until the entire pencil has been used.  If its a liquid liner, however, follow the same rule as with mascara.

  • With sunscreen, toss when the formula starts to separate. It won’t work properly, and that’s a risk you shouldn’t take with any sun screen..

 

If in doubt – Throw it out, Don’t risk it!!  It is a lot more fun selecting new products than it is visiting a Dr. or paying for medication.

 

So exactly how long should keep products for?
