Want to protect your skin against irritation? Remember to avoid using expired grooming products. It’s not because that they are ineffective in use, but the expired products cause severe irritation to the skin. Everybody of us wants to know what to do when experiencing the favorite moisturizer as dried out, separated or smelling bad. We should know as to how long the product(s) would last long and which preventions should be taken initially.

Be Careful with Your Stuff: Whether it’s an edible item or a beauty product, everything expires at some point. To keep the skincare products or deodorants last longer, fresher and effective, make sure to buy the products with a pump. Pump hold the benefit in a way that it works as a physical barrier to bacterial growth. Remember to wash the hands before using any product as the jar may hold bacteria. The jars should be stored in a dark, cool and dry place so to make the inner item last longer.

If you are experiencing a new product giving a bad odor, you should immediately exchange it but never use such a product in any case. The product involving a water element has a shorter shelf life than the usual products.

Analyze the Expiration Date: Normally, all the products have expiration dates so while purchasing the item, look at this feature carefully. Sometimes, there is no expiry date so you may search for the Period after Opening Date (PAO). It is usually located near the illustrations on the right side of the jar’s packaging.

The sponges and loofas should be changed every six to seven weeks while the acne creams must be discarded after three months once they are used.

Lip balms and teeth whitening strips must be abandoned after maximum one year because it can bring bacteria for you. Likewise, eye cream, moisturizer, and sunscreens should also be replaced after one year in order to keep the skin look fresh and freckle free.

Styling products, toothpaste, deodorants, shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, and fragranced products should be used within two years.

Body wash, bar soap, and mouthwash can stay for three years, but that should not be used more than that.
