I'm afraid to touch anything!

I'm afraid to touch anything!

As COVID 19 has required us to be careful being in public places and interacting with people, what can you do at home to mitigate the potential for bad bugs getting into your system? Washing your hands with soap and water is the best place to start. Take stock in how you're handling your natural and organic makeup and skincare products. You may be introducing unwanted bacteria or viruses into your favorite moisturizer or eye cream.  While we can't rid ourselves of all bad bacteria, CosmeticsInfo has some basic best practices for using cosmetics, which are listed below.

  • Tightly close lids on products when they are not in use
  • Use products within the lifespan indicated by the Period After Opening symbol or best before date
  • Avoid storing products in direct sunlight or near sources of heat; choose cool (not freezing) areas where possible
  • Never dilute products (e.g., mixing water in mascara)
  • Apply products with clean hands or an applicator
  • Wash applicators thoroughly with soap, detergent or a mild shampoo then allow to dry completely before use
  • Avoid sharing cosmetics and personal care products with another person
  • Apply with new, unused applicator when testing at department store or cosmetic counter
  • When in doubt, throw it out!

Do some spring cleaning of your makeup and skincare products and your health with thank you.
