Old, expired makeup has the potential of holding onto bacteria that can cause breakouts, dermatitis, and even worse, infections. The preservatives in expired makeup do not work as well as when you first purchased it, causing the formula to break down, and allowing harmful bacteria to grow. If you can’t remember when you last purchased a lipstick or foundation, try smelling the product. If it has an unusual odor, that is a pretty goodindicator it’s time to toss it.

At skin1765, we carry two mineral makeup lines, Glo Skin Beauty and Colorescience, specifically designed to enhance and protect the skin. Both are formulated with antioxidants and vitamins with the intention of being an extension of your skincare, and many of their products are infused with broad-spectrum SPF, for additional sun protection.
