Mascara is one of the favorite things that you use for your eye makeup. And there is no doubt that you want the shelf life of it to be extended. But the problem is that more than often, poor habits wreck the life span of your mascara. However, there are some simple things that you can do to prevent it from getting spoilt or getting messed.
Here Are Some Of Them:
Store In Cool Place
Always store the mascara in a cool place. This is suggested because your mascara tends to get bad much faster when exposed to humidity and sultry weather. You can also store it in the refrigerator. Just take when you want to use and then get started with using.
Avoid Touching With Eyes
Remember that you should avoid all kinds of eye touching with your cosmetic products. Remember that as the product touches your eyes, they water. So it is bad for the eyes but also leads to the germs growing in the bottle of your mascara brush, which spoils the same.
Always Buy Good Products
Don’t compromise on the quality of the mascara because that reduces the shelf life of the same. In simple words, good or branded products ensure that bristles used are hygienic, easy to maintain and rather fuss free. So automatically your shelf life increases.
Buy More Of Mascara Applicators
Another option is to buy more of mascara applicators from the store. Avoid using the same kind of applicator over time. Doing so extends the shelf life of the mascara by almost 6 months. Do remember to buy hygienic ones.
Sometimes the mascara just dries out, but doesn’t go bad. In this case, quick actions can save the mascara from getting spoilt. You can just add some drops of saline solution to the mascara. Shake the bottle well and this will again add moisture to the mascara, without spoiling the shelf life.
Clean Your Brush
If you don’t want to use a new brush or buy a new one, clean the older one with some sanitizer, alcohol or even petroleum jelly. Do not use water here because it will spoil your mascara. Just use a tissue to wipe it dry, without applying much pressure.
