How often

How often do you change out your make-up?
I read its supposed to be every 3 months but that almost seems like a waste of money.
If you dont share it with anyone i dont see why you cant use it a little longer IMO

  • I'm with you. I don't throw it out until it's gone. I'm 48 and I have great skin.

  • I dont change it out every 3 months and I have never had any issues, I am sure its best within the first 3 months, but I dont think its unusable after 3. I am a bit more careful with Mascara though.

  • It's because of hygiene! You wouldn't sleep on the same sheets for a year!

    This is because old makeup could be harboring dangerous bacteria, and the use of such products could lead to skin problems such as little red bumps that looks like acne. Makeup products don’t come with expiration dates, so it is best for eye make-ups and liquid foundation are to be thrown away after three months. This is the same with powders and foundations that have been used more than a year ago. Remember that your make-up should be replaced on regular basis.
