Toss out old makeup

Stay Beautiful: Toss out old makeup it a Breeding ground for Bacteria

When Beauty Goes Wrong

According to FDA cosmetics are not required by law to to have an expiration date.

That means that old makeup is a breeding ground for bacteria, ladies ask yourself how old is that lipstick mascara or even your foundation really is you’ve been using on your flawless skin. Many cosmetics that are exposed to sunlight and high temperatures may substantial deteriorate before expiration date

Look through your old makeup for a chemical change. Changes include: a rancid odor, color change.

Learn to part with your old makeup. No matter how pretty it is, you would be better off throwing it out than risking disease.

Date makeup when you buy it. Write the month and year on it with a permanent marker. If you’re not sure about when to toss old makeup, six months is a good rule of thumb.

Time Limited: To get maximum longevity from your make up, buy only cosmetics that haven’t been opened. When you get your goodies home, store them in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Always close the lids tightly after use

Lipstick can last 2-3 years.
Lip gloss lasts 18 months.
If your mascara is clumpy, chuck it. Tons of bacteria could be growing inside.
Get your own makeup, and use it well. Don’t be afraid of using it too quickly; do throw it out when it’s time.
If your foundation is thickening, chuck that too. Again with the bacteria.
Nail Polish can last about one year.
Don’t share lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip balms. They can give you the herpes virus. This virus causes cold sores and eventually makes you very sick, and it’s not fun to have. So even if your friend has a really cute lip gloss, just find out what brand and shade or flavor or number it is and go buy it yourself. You’re better off spending a few extra bucks on new makeup than getting a virus that sticks with you for life. You don’t know who else your friend shared that lip gloss with, or where their mouth has been.
If makeup looks old or changes texture or color, throw it out. If it smells bad too, throw it out.
Eye makeup and liquid foundations last the least amount of time. These should be disposed of after six months.
Throw out mascara after three months.
If you’ve had an eye infection, you’ll need to throw out all the eye make up and applicators you used from the time you developed symptoms. The virus or bacteria that caused the infection has probably taken up residence in your make up, so using those cosmetics again could cause you to develop another infection.
