When does your make up expire?

Did you know your make up can expire?  One thing I’ve noticed over the years of applying make up is I constantly forget to throw out old make up and instantly regret it. Make up like any food or drink goes off. So I’ve put together a list and tip and tricks to remember when to throw out that flaky mascara or that gooey foundation.

I can’t empathize how important it is to keep an eye on a date. Expired make up can cause breakouts, and can lead to inflammation aka redness, bumps , a rash, blisters and swelling!

Another trick I have picked up is checking the little tub that you see on the back of most makeup products. The figure means the amount of months the product is ok to use from the time it is opened.
