Cosmetics are supposed to enhance your beauty, but if you’re not careful, they might hurt it instead.

How do you keep makeup clean?

Items like lip gloss and mascara that seem so harmless can actually cause you to end up with conditions such as bacterial infections, the flu, pink eye or even herpes.

It’s not that the products or their ingredients pose these threats. The problem arises from the fact that cosmetics are an ideal environment for nasty microorganisms, such as yeast or e.coli, to thrive.

If you are thinking, “doesn’t makeup have preservatives,” the answer is yes. But, understand that preservatives are included to minimize risks. They do not offer a solid guarantee that your cosmetics will remain safe. More than a few women have discovered this the hard way. So that you don’t get counted  among them, develop good habits that can help to keep you safe.

Expiration Dates

A lot of women do not replace cosmetics unless the products are empty or there are clear signs of a problem. This is one of several common mistakes that you should never make again. Though it may not be printed on the packages, cosmetics, like food, have expiration dates and they need to be discarded when their lifespan expires. Think about it, if product has expired, its preservatives have expired too.
