It's Time to Clean Out Your Makeup Bag....

Since expired cosmetics can cause skin irritation and eye infections,
it's important to replace them often.
Unlike food, though, cosmetics aren't required to have an expiration date on their packaging.
Instead, you'll have to keep track of when you open it. If you have a hard time keeping track of when you've bought things, just use a Sharpie to write down the purchase date.
But use common sense: If your gloss is gloopy, your nail polish is separating, or your lipstick has a funny smell, it's time to toss it. I know that most of us see throwing makeup out as throwing away $$$$, but it worth an eye infection???
