Are Your Cosmetics Making You Sick?

You have heard it a million times before...
Wash your hands!  This is the best way to avoid the worst of cold and flu season.  However, did you know that your make-up could harbor a host of bacteria?  I am sure you have heard or read about discarding your mascara after 3 months.
Mascara is very susceptible to infection causing bacteria, so it is important to replace it regularly, even if it has not dried up and you still have a lot left. However, you should also replace other cosmetics regularly.  Here is a list with a general time line of shelf life:
Mascara and other eye makeup: 3 months
Liquid Foundation: 3-6 months
Blush: 6 months
Facial cleansers & moisturizers: 6 months
Lipstick: 1 year
Nail Polish: 2 years
