How to Maintain your Cosmetics
By Florah Njoki
Cosmetics or rather beauty products are an investment. You cannot acquire quality cosmetics unless your wallet is loaded. Therefore, preserving these products appropriately is fundamental. The alternative is buying replacement products every now and then. We have conducted a thorough research and identified some tips to help you maintain your beauty products and save more.
Buy a makeup holder or storage kit: This might sound like an expensive idea but it actually helps. A good makeup storage kit features compartments where you can arrange different cosmetics. For example, you can place you powder and foundation in one place, and eye pencils in the other. If you do not like the idea of spending on a makeup holder, buy an elaborate organizer that can store all your accessories. This provides you with a safe and secure way of storing your sunglasses, moisturizers, perfumes, necklaces, rings, makeup products, and bracelets among others.
Always clean your makeup applicators after use: Your makeup applicators should be clean always. This not only prolongs the period they serve you but also, it prevents them from breeding bacterial agents that can lead to infections.
Keep you cosmetics away from heat: You should always place your cosmetics in a cool dry place. Heat has the tendency of interfering with the chemical composition of products. It can make products react with your skin in unexpected ways. Furthermore, it can destroy some products completely.
Open one product at a time: Opening multiple cans of the same product leads to wastage. Have one can for each product that use in your makeup or beauty routine. This allows you to use it appropriately and ensure that it is finished before the expiry date. It is advisable to buy cosmetic products in small quantities. This allows users to finish them before they are ruined.
