Your long-term make-up products can be risky.

Using out-of-date products can damage your skin. For example, an out-of-date lipstick may cause an allergic reaction on your lips. That’s why the expiration date is very important in make-up materials, as it is in everything. But remember, the date the make-up was produced is not important, the date you opened the package and used it is important.

How to read the expiry date on make-up materials?

If you’re wondering what the expiration date of a make-up product is, here’s a simple solution for you. All cosmetics have a picture of an open jar on the reverse. This sign, which means how much should be used after opening; It also allows you to calculate how long you can use it.

So what should we do to use our make-up materials for a long time?

  • If a product is starting to seriously develop an odor, it’s time to go. Make sure all your products are capped after use and store makeup in a cool and dry place.
  • Storing make-up products in different environments (like lipstick in the refrigerator) can keep them fresh after their expiration date.
  • Another thing to keep in mind: do not “pump” the mascara wand in and out of the tube. All you do is allow the product to come into contact with air which causes it to deteriorate faster.
  • Pencil eyeliners and lip pencils last longer when sharpened regularly.
  • If you have trouble remembering exactly how long you’ve used a product, write the date you opened it on the bottom of the box with a permanent marker for easy reference.
  • Make-up tools that don’t have an exact expiration date, such as sponges and brushes, can be even harder to detect when they’re spoiled. Make-up brushes and sponges need to be cleaned regularly in order to use them for a long time. For example; While make-up sponges should be cleaned daily, washing all of the brushes once a week will extend their usage time.
