When to drop your fashion products in Bin
Every thing comes with a expiry date and same goes with your fashion products. Starting from Eye pencil to foundation. Especially when it comes to your skin and face, should never compromise. It's better not to use a makeup than to use an expired one. Using expired products could result in a whole lot of medical problems including skin irritation and breakouts and eye infection.
- Mascara: Starting with the most important makeup item for your eyes, mascara ideally should not be used for more than four months as this is one beauty product that expires the fastest. Above all your eyes are more valuable than anything. As we regularly use the wand and put it back in the tube, gives a chance to bacteria to breed. If it gets clumpy or begins to smell foul, replace it immediately.
- Eye shadows and eye pencils: A good quality of eye shadow or pencil will stay well for about two years, if you don't share it with anyone and if the tip of the eye pencil is sharpened regularly.
- Nail polish: This is one of the powerful beauty products which if stored properly, can last up to at least a year and a half. Of course the quality of the product is the deciding factor. Throw then when it dries up and doesn't spread smoothly on the nails.
- Lipstick, gloss and liner: As per the experts these products last for a year. However, if you find that it has started smelling stale or if the gloss or liner looks weird, it's time for modification.
- Foundation: If you are using water-based foundation use it for up to a year while if you have an oil-based one then ideally use it for about 18 months. Another important factor is whether you're using a pump style bottle or have to dab your fingers into. The more your hand comes directly in contact with the product, the shorter is its life. If you have signs of skin breakouts and irritation, time to replace it immediately.
- Compact and powder blush or bronzer: You can use compact up to a year. However if it's giving irritation to your skin, you better know what to do. Other sign when you should throw them if it smells funny or looks strange.
