Make Up Health: Shelf Life Of Your Cosmetics
Discover the truth about make up health and shelf life
Depending on the type of foundation you have, the dates for throwing out your old products may differ. For good make up health, this is the most essential because foundation covers a large area of your skin on a daily basis. A water based foundation can last up to a year, while an oil based foundation can last for up to eighteen months. If you find that your water based foundation dries out before it expires, just add a few drips of water or alcohol free toner in order to keep it moist. You should discard makeup sponges on a regular basis, while it is essential to wash your make up brushes every few weeks in order to remove bacteria and make up. Lipstick can last up to four years but if you notice that it smells funny, it would be a good decision to chuck it. Last but not least, mascara should be switched out every four months since it tends to dry out faster and is applied to your eyes daily, which can harbor lots of bacteria.
