Most women have too many beauty products stashed over their cupboards, handbags and nightstands ( this is me ). They buy them with so much enthusiasm, but become negligent when it comes to looking after them. Improperly cared beauty products can significantly result in skin infections and irritations. This leads to a lot of wastage of money too, unless you know how to take care of your beauty products properly. 

Here are a few pieces of advice:



  •                Do not use any beauty products after their expiry date, though a few days past the date can be alright, as it is just an indication. Cosmetics may become rancid with age, and lose their advantageous properties.



  •                    No cosmetic should be used for more than 6 to 8 months. Constant contact with air and your skin can result in bacterial building up in the products, thus increasing the chances of causing skin problems.



  •                     Always apply cosmetics with clean hands, as dirty hands may contaminate and ruin them. Dirty hands may also transfer bacteria from the cosmetics to your face, thereby leading to more problems.



  •                 Try not to share your beauty products with others, as this increases chances of a bacterial infection. This applies particularly to products that are applied directly to the skin, such as eye liners, mascara and lipsticks.



  •                     Never leave tubes and bottles of cosmetics open. They should be properly stored, so as to avoid damage and contamination.



  •                  Always clean your applicators and brushes after use. Accumulated makeup not only makes it difficult to use in future, but also increases chances of infection. e.l.f. Daily Brush Cleaner Spray is a perfect spray cleaner to clean your makeup brushes and applicators.



  •                     Be more careful with your eye makeup products, as infections in the eyes can have serious consequences.



Cleanliness and hygiene are indeed very important for skin care. If you feel or smell something bad in your product, then throw it away immediately! Undoubtedly, it is essential to use clean and high quality cosmetics suitable for your skin type only. But you need to make sure that the products are kept clean too in order to maintain their quality. No matter how expensive and high quality your product is, it will only cause you harm if it is not kept in good condition and taken care of properly.




So, use the above steps to take care of your cosmetics, and get the maximum benefit out of them. This will ensure that you receive best value for your money.
