Different types of cosmetics with different shelf life! Make-up is to make yourself look beautiful, but if you use expired cosmetics, not only will your skin be damaged and worse, but you will also be afraid that your eyesight will be damaged by expired eye makeup! In fact, cosmetics will gradually oxidize from the moment they are opened. Most boxes will be printed with the expiration date of PAO (Period After Opening). The foundation is usually 3 years, the lipstick is 2 years, and the mascara and eyeliner are 3-6. For organic products or skin care products that do not contain preservatives, bacteria are more likely to multiply, so the service life will be shorter and must be cleaned regularly to avoid using expired cosmetics without knowing it.
If you have discarded the cosmetics carton and do not know the expiration date, please confirm the feeling of use!
When the smell changes, the texture hardens, or deposits appear, it should be discarded.

LIPSTICK/LIP GLOSS/LIP LINER-2 YEARS
Because it is more often exposed, it will deteriorate quickly. If it feels sticky or smells of old oil during use, it should be discarded.

MASCARA/EYELINER/EYESHADOW-HALF A YEAR
Sweeping head is the cosmetic that deteriorates the fastest because it comes into contact with the mucous membranes and tears of the eyes. The solidification of the liquid is evidence of ageing.

EXTEND THE LIFE OF COSMETICS
Do not place it in direct sunlight. Clean your hands or the parts that will be stained before use, which can slightly slow down the rate of deterioration. However, for cosmetics with a stated expiration date, please comply with that expiration date.
USE EXPIRED COSMETICS
How can girls endure buying cosmetics? There will always be cosmetics that have passed their shelf life in the cabinet. If you are not willing to discard them, it is recommended to use other methods.
Just like lipstick, because it contains rich emulsifiers, it can eliminate old dirt or rust stains on metal objects. Just wipe a paper towel with lipstick and clean it with a general detergent, and the metal ornaments can shine again.
As for the expired eyeshadow, you can mash it and mix it into the transparent nail polish, shake it to become a new color nail polish!
For the sake of skin health, remember to check and change cosmetics regularly!
