How to repeat: read the fine print!
Buying new makeup is a holiday for all women, informs Rus.Media.
And to put on makeup – the most beautiful feeling in the world!
But rejoicing in the transformation, we do not pay attention to one little thing.
On the package there is an icon with a shelf life once open, the tools: looks like an open jar with a number inside is the number of months. Expired cosmetics in the best case, loses its properties (a hint of fat on sunscreens), and at worst can cause bacterial infection.
For example, if the expiration date of the ink for eyes – 6 months, and you use it longer, it means that you regularly get the bacteria from your eye into the tube dried up, expired products. There, these bacteria multiply, and then you bring them back to the eye.
Plus, the dried ink is collected in lumps, which is not attractive.
In short: expired shelf life – in the garbage disposal!
All cosmetic products must be indicated by the icon in the form of jars with the number directly on the container or on the box in which it was packaged.
Don’t forget to look for this icon before you throw away cardboard or plastic packaging.
The countdown starts from the moment the opening means, and not from the date of purchase.
So if you bought the makeup, and she spent a month in sealed, lead a countdown from the day you start to use it, and not from the date of purchase.
But the easiest way to protect yourself from expired cosmetics: opening new makeup – put on it with a marker the date of use.
