Tips in Handling beauty things with care

Updated on August 29, 2012

Increase the shelf life of your beauty loot (and save more in the long run) with these handy TLC tips....

The TLC habits:

1) wash your brushes

  • Over time, dirt, oil and bacteria can accumulate on your makeup brushes. So wash them at least once a week with a mild facial mash to help prolong the lifespan of your makeup.
  • Just place a small amount of soap your palms and swirl the wet bristles onto it.
  • Rinse off the product under running water and lay them flat on a towel air-dry.

2) Store products in the fridge

  • Since germs multiply faster in hotter environments, its best to store your creams, lotions and fragrances in your refrigerator.
  • This will prevent them from separating, discoloring, or evaporating right away.
  • Beauty bonus: It'll even help cool your skin when you apply the product on your face or body!

3. Always put the lid back on

  • When you're primping in a hurry, it's tempting to leave without putting the lead back on your moisturizer or loose powder.However, this leaves your products exposed to humidity, and even icky bugs.
  • Next time, make an effort to close your beauty jars (it'll take three seconds, tops).

4. Use a Spatula

  • When you dip your fingers into cream-based products (like lipstick or blush), you end up transferring oil and dirt from your fingers into the pot.
  • To avoid this, use a mini spatula (or use this edge of a small teaspon).
  • Simply scrape a bit of it off the tube or pot before applying it onto your lips or face.
