Tip 5: Consider tossing or replacing products with shorter expiration dates, like tubes of mascara, or instead, use a disposable spoolie brush to apply to lashes. Sharpen your eye and lip pencils before each use and utilize an alcohol solution to sanitize your pencil sharpener. For lipstick, use a spatula to gently scrape excess product onto a palette and apply with a lip brush, making sure to clean it after each use.
All of these tips are important to maintain good beauty hygiene, but especially if you have been sick. If you have been sick, clean or discard any beauty products that have been used while sick to prevent spreading more unwanted bacteria. Stay clean, stay safe!
