A: Experts recommend washing disposable sponges after each use and replacing them monthly. If you suffer from acne, it’s a good idea to replace them more frequently.
A: No. Generally speaking, you can’t count on cost or quality to extend the life of your products.
A: Most products are stable when fully packaged and unexposed to air. As a general rule, begin tracking the life of your formulas from the day you open them.
A: On her Yahoo! Health blog, The Skin Guru, dermatologist Leslie Baumann, M.D., offers lots of valuable tips for keeping your cosmetics germ-free, including: If you have acne, avoid using a loofah, because this can spread acne from one part of your body to another. Instead, she suggests using Pond’s Clean Sweep Cleansing Wipes. Also, keep jars or creams out of the shower, because humidity can render ingredients less effective and can lead to fungi growth. Wash beauty brushes monthly, and throw out expired makeup (learn when beauty and skin care products expire here). And use alcohol to clean tweezers every time before use.
