When it comes to the bathroom, most of us aren’t thinking of our makeup bags as a significant source of germs. However, the truth is that the average human fingertip contains nearly double the amount of bacteria as a public toilet seat, and that bacteria regularly contaminates our makeup and brushes. Even more shockingly is the fact that nearly 1/4 women report never having cleaned their makeup bags! In order to keep your skin healthy and glowing, you need to be practicing proper cosmetic hygiene and getting rid of expired products.
From Rory, below are some good guidelines to keep in mind when re-evaluating your makeup routine:
I’m sure we’re all guilty of holding onto our favorite lipgloss or mascara well past their discard date. I know I definitely am. As it turns out, regularly cleaning out your makeup collection is just as important as keeping up with your daily skincare regime.
Since I have a makeup drawer with removable organizers, cleaning them is fairly easy. However as it turns out I wasn’t cleaning my sponges nearly often enough.
