I don't know about you but I've never had the habit of checking expiring date of my make up products. Until the day I've started having a strange allergy on my skin and, coincidence or not, it stopped right after I've stopped using some beauty products that were out of its validity day.
This made me keep paying attention of all my products' expiring date. So if you don't have the habit of checking this detail, too, check it out some great reasons why you should change it!
Some skin redness might be caused by sensible skins, which is something natural. But, sometimes, the redness of your skin might be caused by using products out of its validity day. Be careful!
Terrible acnes that disturb us a big part of our lives are not only caused by dirty and pollution. They might be caused, also, by those make up products that has its validity date expired. Those old products have fungus and bacterias around them that automatically pass to our skin, when we use it. Besides, in liquid products, its oiliness became accumulated, another fact that blocks our pores, making the acnes appear.
3- BURNING SKIN
Another symptom caused by using old produtcs is the burning skin, also knew by few people. Pay attention at your skin's sensibility: if you think it hurts or it burns more than common, probably is because some out to date make up or beauty product.
4- EYES ALLERGY
This is very dangerous: old make up might cause eye allergy - which is something really grave. If you keep using mascara, for eyelashes or any other eye make up that is out to date, stop right now. It might also compromise your vision.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR PRODUCTS "LIVE" LONGER
1- Do not let your beauty products in the restroom - it is, usually, a humid place, and the warmth of the water might ruin your products faster;
2- Wash your make up brushes regularly, to avoid that bacterias and fungus grow up and infect your skin;
3- Avoid touching the extremities of the products with your hands, so then you also avoid contaminating the rest of the product and your skin, as a consequence (e.g.: lipsticks, mascara, brushes, etc).
EXTRA TIP FOR NOT TO LOSE EXPIRING DATE
In case the expiration date of your make up product is written only on the packaging, that usually is thrown away, write it down in a small paper or a sticker and paste it around the cover or the tube of your product. This is a way to keep seeing this date, and never forget when you should stop using it.
