When to Toss Away Your Beauty Products?
Beauty and makeup products do go bad, they stop performing, even cause irritation and infection when used beyond expiry date. Sadly, unlike food, cosmetics aren't required to have an expiry date on their package so it is necessary for us to keep a track on it. Organising beauty products make this process a piece of cake.

Signs you need to say Goodbye to your Beauty Products:Signs you need to say Goodbye to your beauty products:
  • Compact powder which has become crusty is not going to do any good for you.
  • DUMP the broken blushes and pressed powder, they are irreparable.
  • If your foundation is thick, runny or streaky it is time to replace it.
  • Throw lip gloss when it changes color or becomes gooey.
  • Razors must be replaced weekly or bi-weekly.
  • Nail polish which is separating must be dumped.
  • Funny smelling lipstick is a big NO.
