Is Your Makeup Infested with Bacteria? Throw it Away NOW!

Would you rub germs and bacteria on your face? Well that is exactly what you are doing when you are reusing makeup after a certain period of time. It’s quite filthy when you think about it. If you put your 6 months old makeup under a microscope, you will be horrified to find the germs crawling, swimming and doing acrobatic moves under your very eyes. Disgusting thought? It’s a disgusting fact!

The shelf life for most makeup that has been opened and used is normally around 3 – 6 months. Any makeup that comes in contact with the eyes and eye fluid is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria – mascaras, eye liners and eye shadows should belong in the rubbish bin after 3 months. Bacteria such as  Staph, yeast and fungal can develop and if the bacteria gets into your eyes, you may develop eye infections such as conjuctivitus or other more serious eye conditions.

So how long before you throw away your makeup? Find out what the shelf life is for each makeup product once it has been used for the first time.

Organic Foundation Makeup Tips

Makeup foundation sits on the skin, covers most of the face, and we use more of it than most makeup items.
