Even if most women are able to use up all of their skin-care products within a year, some of them still find old, open products in their cosmetics cabinet, and they do not have the heart to throw them out.
In spite of the fact that skin-care products contain preservatives, you should take simple precautions to avoid infection from a bacteria-filled skin-care product.
Put all of your skin-care products out on the table and get ready to–maybe–throw the expired products out.
The durability of your skin-care products depends on several different factors. For example, some products contain water (most creams), while others do not (powder, pure oils, etc.,. Product packaging can make a difference, too.
If your skin-care products are subjected to sunlight, air, heat, bacteria, or high temperature shifts, deterioration will happen significantly faster.
The solution is always to buy products in safe packaging, which is a pump or a tube; never a jar.
At the same time, you should store your skin-care products in a cabinet or a drawer in your bedroom and thereby avoid the humidity, shifts in temperature, and possible exposure to direct sunlight that may occur in your bathroom.
