Winter is just around the corner, which means this is the perfect time to begin purging your current supply of makeup and skin care products to bring in some fresh products. The cold weather will take an extra toll on your skin, which is why it is so important to have an arsenal of ingredients and tools at your disposal to ensure that you look as good as possible throughout the harsh months. Even if you are really attached to a certain item, the truth is that it can eventually expire and end up doing more harm to your face than good.
Here are a few tips for when you should replace your beauty products:
- Facial wipes: The good news about the wipes you use to keep your face clean and pores clear is that they generally last a long time, anywhere from nine months to a year. So you don't have to worry about causing damage to your skin if you have had the same ones for a while.
- Mascara and eyeliner: Because you depend on these products each day, they tend to be used up very quickly, but they shouldn't be kept around any longer than three months. The reason for this is simple, as they contain moisture and are more vulnerable to growing bacteria.
- Shadows and powders: These items can last you around six months before they need to be thrown out and replaced. They have a longer shelf life than some other products that are used daily, as long as you take care of them properly. Clean brushes will be essential to this process, so be sure to rinse them out at least once a week.
