How do I know when its time to throw out my expired skin care products?
For every health and beauty product you used this morning, there are probably five others sitting idle in your medicine cabinet. Most beauty products are designed to stay fresh and stable only for a limited period of time. After that, they start to break down, so your cream might not work as well, or become ineffective. When products are used and stored for an extended time there is a risk of bacteria growing on the product. Its best to pay close attention to the expiration dates on the products. Many products have a shelf life of 1-2 years, but may have been idle for a long time before you purchased them.
