Did you know cosmetics have an expiration date?

Its not that cosmetics manufacturers wants to sell more. Its because Bacteria  grows on these after awhile. Its like if you have a cold an you go to brush your teeth, That toothbrush has bacteria  on it from your illness. its the same with lipsticks or mascara specially if you share with your teenager or other people.Studies have shown once you open the container, bacteria can grow once that product is opened

It also has a lot number which can give you information on when it was made and its expiration date.Using a product beyond its expiration date risks irritation, rashes, blemishes and various skin or eye infections. Yuck. Keep reading for tips on what to look for to assure you’re using your products within the time frame of their “best by” date!

Makeup

  • Mascara (regular or waterproof), liquid, pencil or gel eyeliners: 4 to 6 months (always toss out dry mascara—never add water to extend its life)
  • Cream, Liquid or Stick Foundations or Concealers: 6 months to 1 year
  • Powder-based products (including mineral makeup): 2-3 years
  • Lipsticks, Lip Gloss, & Lip Pencils: 2-3 years

Skincare

  • Cleansers: 1 year
  • Toners: 6 months to 1 year
  • BHA or AHA Exfoliants: 1 year
  • Facial or Body Moisturizers and Serums: 6 months to 1 year
  • Lip Balms: 1 year
  • Sample Packets: 1 day (no, really, one day)

The dos and dont on making your product last

DO:

  • DO store products in a cabinet or drawer
  • DO wash your hands before using products
  • DO tighten/secure the cap after each use
  • DO consider how climate and humidity will shorten a product’s shelf life
  • DO write the date of purchase in permanent ink (use a Sharpie) on the bottom or back of the package (this can be even more helpful than relying on the PAO date)
  • DO toss out eye products after you’ve had an eye infection
  • DO abide by the expiration dates on sunscreens, acne products, and prescription medications such as topical antibiotics and Renova or Retin-A

DON’T:

  • DON’T store your products in the refrigerator. Skincare formulas are designed to withstand the average fluctuations in temperature, but not long-term heat or cold storage—that means keeping your products in your fridge reduces their lifespan and stability.
  • DON’T store products in direct sunlight (for example, don’t keep them on a sunny windowsill)
  • DON’T share your products with others
  • DON’T add water or saliva to thin out or remoisten products
  • DON’T forget to clean the cap or lid if you drop it on the floor. Use soap and water or rubbing alcohol and dry thoroughly before replacing.
