Be Wary Of What You Put On Your Face
Many of us may be strict when it comes to cleanliness. We always want to keep things tidy and as much as possible ensure that our things are not in any way contaminated with harmful bacteria. But we women quite often forget that there is one daily routine that could harm us with allergies, breakouts and even serious infections. We may not be aware but our make-up products and paraphernalia could be a breeding ground for germs and microorganisms that can cause harm on our skin. It is quite important to store make-up products and tools properly to prevent this from happening. Although most cosmetic products contain preservatives to prevent bacteria from thriving in them, there are certain factors that we cannot control like exposure to light and heat that can alter the effect of these preservatives.
It is also important to note that these products have a shelf life. It has been a bad habit for most of the female population to be keeping tons of make-up in their kits without being aware of the fact that it has been there for quite some time and is no longer wearable. It is also not good to store most of these make-up products in our bathroom wherein it is humid for this condition encourages these microorganisms to thrive. A helpful tip would be to always store make-up in a dry and cool place. Avoid it from getting exposed to sunlight.
Keep lids and covers tightly close when you are not using them. Clean make-up tools like brushes for this could also be a breeding ground for bacteria. Wash and clean them regularly. It is a big no-no to share make-up for this is just like sharing your toothbrush or comb with someone else. The germs or bacteria that she may have on her face and skin could transfer to your make-up that could in turn transfer to you. Also, be careful when trying out testers of cosmetic products. Take note that a lot of people have been trying them on, using the applicators and touching it with their fingers. If the sales personnel are not so keen on hygiene, you could get rashes and possibly skin infections from these. In the end, it doesn’t matter what type of tools or brushes you use for make-up, on whether you use your hands in applying it, or you use expensive or cheap make-up. What is more important is that you keep your cosmetic products and paraphernalia clean to avoid problems in the future.
