Today, I'm going to talk about sanitizing and expiration dates. This will be a "go-to-guideline" to keep in mind when sharing and selling your pre-loved products
When it comes to hygiene, everyone is quite different - some will be alright sharing products with their friends and don't mind selling them, but then there's people like me - who stand clear from using anything that's touched someone else's skin. I've always been very good at makeup hygiene, and it's super important to know about it. This is help recuse break outs and nasty pink eye!
So let's get down to the basics:
- Lip Glosses
- Everything else that comes in a tube with a wand applicator.
Same goes with lip gloss, concealers and every other cosmetics that's in a liquid formula in a tube. Once that wand applicator goes back into the tube, its classed as contaminated. There is no way of cleaning inside the tube.
- Pressed Powders
- Powder Foundations
- Eye shadows
- Eye Pencils
- Lip Pencils
- Eye Brow Pencils
- Lip Sticks
Its definitely a job that needs to be done, must clean your brushes so bacteria and other offenders don't block up the pores or make break outs. It's basic hygiene! For brushes that are used daily ( without sharing) I suggested cleaning at least once a week. If you share your brushes, do not use them until you've washed them. By doing so - your brushes won't have the other persons oils and bacteria getting transferred on your skin.
