Beauty Products' Life Span Know When To Throw Out Your Beauty Products

Ladies have a habit of holding on to things for too long especially when our loved beauty products are concerned. This should be avoided if we don't want blemishes and other skin issues.

  • Published:

Our make-up just like every other products have an expiry date. Sometimes we continue using these products not caring about how long we've held on to them causing us to break out and sometimes result in infections.

Here is a list of how long your beauty products should last before tossing them into the trash can:

The Mascara

Mascara should not exceed six months after its open. Once you start using mascara, after six months discard them, even when they are finished. The wand breeds bacteria which could result in an eye infection, you don't want that do you?

Concealer

Your concealer should not last for more than two years. Once its two years old, its time for it to be replaced.

The lip-liner should not exceed one year.
