When was the last time you went through your makeup bag? Makeup is one of the things most people accumulate over the years. People think that because they don’t see an expiration date, it does not expire.

This is absolutely false!

Makeup definitely expires and it is very important to keep track of that. Wearing expired makeup can have side effects such as skin inflammation, acne, skin allergies and eye infections.

So how do you know when to toss your makeup?

If you look on the side or bottom of the product, you will see this:

This is the expiration date you need to consider after you buy a product. It is how long that product is good for after you purchase it. Now, many people may say, “Well I’ve had a product for 10 years and haven’t had an infection or anything!”

As great as that is why would you want to risk that or take a chance with something as delicate as your face.

Better safe than sorry!
