Ensure your skin care products don't spoil
Just like food, beauty products can also spoil if handled incorrectly. But while throwing away contaminated food may only set you back a few dollars, having to throw away your spoiled luxe skin care buys can leave you seriously out of pocket.
To ensure that your skin care products stay fresh and unspoiled, follow these quick tips…
1.) Always store your face creams and lotions (and any other beauty product for that matter) out of direct sunlight and in a cool temperature.
2.) If your face cream comes in a tub (like Estée Lauder ReNutriv Intensive Lifting Crème) and you have to use your fingers to apply it, wash your hands before each application to ensure that you don’t transfer bacteria into the tub.
3.) If you’re using an eye cream that comes with a special applicator (such as La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream), be sure to remove all eye make-up before applying your product. You should also rinse the applicator with warm water after each use.
