If you have products over a year old in your beauty cabinet, you need to do some spring cleaning. It’s so easy to hoard beauty products. However, it’s important to toss products before they become an irritant, or no longer perform correctly. We’ve created a few tips for spring cleaning your beauty cabinet.
- For Every Season, New Products: the moisturizer and lotion you use in winter are not necessary for spring. Weather changes mean the products you put on your body and face should change as well,. Spring welcomes lighter, water-based creams.
- Product Expire: When switching from your winter to spring products, don’t make the mistake of reaching for last year’s product. Go buy new ones! Beauty products expire.
- Product Shelf Life: Anything you squeeze out of a tube or bottle into your hands (i.e., face wash, lotion, etc) should be tossed after 6-12 months. If you’re using your finger to take the product out of a jar (this is usually the case with eye cream), then it should be tossed after 3 months. Your fingers carry a lot of bacteria, so continually dipping into a container provides a breeding ground for bacteria. And you don’t want that near your eye.
If you want to revitalize your beauty cabinet, come in and we will recommend expert advice! You only need a few great products to replace a cabinet full of mediocre ones.
